The Rustic is in rustic style! Grey and plank wood exterior, with a few tables and chairs. The interior is a dog-leg, and in crate wood, brick, wood floor, with high stools, lights, bus and tram murals. There is an upstairs area as well. They do food. There was no TV and the music was at a decent level. The service was fine and the clientele maturer at my visit. Beer: craft and Freedom keg beers, with 4 real ales on handpull - I had a good Magpie's Thieving Rogue. Definitely worth a look in, more than happy to have stopped off here.

Malden man left this review about Craftsman

A long and narrow room at ground floor which kicks very slightly to the left as the room extends back. The floor is close boarded as is the bar counter, decor is fairly minimalist and includes a mural of the brewing process by stages on a side wall and a few bits of modern art towards the rear. Unusual clear glass globe filament lights hang from the ceiling. Booth seating opposite the bar has adjoining charging points. High style tables to the rear.
As the pub name infers, the beer range is eclectic. On cask were Merlin's Excalibur, Mobberley Brewhouse Concept, Boom Juice and Elsium, Black Isle Blonde plus Revolution Brewing Co Gogo. The handpumps are numbered with the beers listed on a board on the wall. There are a few exotic keg offerings also and cocktails are advertised. Food seems to be platters of meat, cheese or pate or snacks such as sausage rolls or olives.
Stairs wind up to the toilets and another room which had stacked chairs, then they rise again somewhere but the second set was roped off.
A welcome addition to the rapidly improving Altrincham pub scene if not especially traditional, the barman was chatty and clearly interested in the beers. Recommended.
