This is a multi-roomed Robinsons corner pub that is GBG 2017 listed. As you enter there is a door on the left and one on the right. I took the left door as it sounded like there was a TV in the other. On a late Tuesday afternoon this room was empty. I assume it's the public bar as there is a decent darts area at the back. There are two small TVs that were turned off. Behind the darts area is a small snug that I was dismayed to see was dominated by a large TV which was turned off. I didn't venture into the bar with the TV turned on. Although there are three hand pumps in the bar I was in and I thought I saw four in the other bar only three Robinsons beers were available Dizzy Blonde, Unicorn and Pint Of Thrones. I went for the Unicorn (£3.00) which was excellent.
I found the TVs here a turn-off and doubt that I would return. There are places in Stockport with a much better range of Robinsons beers. It's GBG 2017 listed.

Well-placed for the railway station and Stockport County, this is a straightforward Robbies pub that has hung on to a decent amount of a refit in the 1920’s. A large main lounge bar and a couple of rear rooms (one specifically for darts), traditionally decorated though the colour scheme wasn’t to my taste and it is a bit plain compared to somewhere like the nearby Crown. Three Robinson’s ales on, I tried the Xmas and Unicorn which were both in decent nick, though I am not really a fan of their beers. It’s a decent little stop.

Multi roomed Robinsons pub close to the Edgeley exit from the station. The lounge to the right has a big screen TV racing, a couple of booths and a fine copper fireplace, there's also a jukebox. The room to the left has a dartboard and had speakers set up on my Friday afternoon visit. The room to the rear left has another dartboard and also a large TV screen which was turned off at the time. All the room are nicely decorated with green, leather look seating. Lots of pictures of old Stockport around the walls. There's a beer garden to the rear as well. Upstairs is another room (not visited) which sometimes hosts live music and can also be used as a function room. 4 handpumps on the bar with 3 ales available Dizzy Blonde, Trooper & Unicorn. The Dizzy was a good pint. It's close to Stockport County's home ground, so it's probably best avoided when they're at home.
