Bucking Fastard left this review about The Magnet Inn

Another terrific ale house ,clearly two buildings now knocked together and that produces an interesting interior with lots of nook and crannies.There are two room both with bar access,to the right there is a mid building section and then a higher back lounge through an archway.There is also an upstairs area but this was closed off on my Thursday evening visit.The left room has a longer bar counter and then a lower level pool room,and connects via a rear corridor to the other side of the pub.There is an external beer terrace.The star of the show is from the 15 handpumps,although not all will be operational at the same time.The chalk board described the selection which seems to constantly rotate ,and was too extensive to record on my short crawl visit.My Salopian Velocity was in good nick,as was the pints of my companions.The album covers make for good decoration,as did the wall of hanging mirrors and the pub was one of the busier on our crawl.
Next time I will spend longer in here ,and sample more widely.Not to be missed on any visit to Stockport.

The Magnet opens at 4pm during the week. As it was a nice evening on this visit, we sat out on the roof terrace, which is reached via a steel staircase at the back of the pub. There was also a list of 14 ales on a blackboard, on this visit. We went for the Roosters Buckeye, Peerless Paxtons Perculiar and Hawkshead NZ Pale Ale. A good pub this one and well worth a visit.

This was the local area CAMRA Pub Of The Year 2011, not bad for a pub that was a failing keg only pub not that long ago. There are 14 ale handpumps plus a real cider now. It's also home to the Cellar Rat brewery although none of their beers were available on my visit. There's a snug with a pool table down some steps to the left of the bar and more rooms through arches at the rear, although these were reserved for a private party on my Friday afternoon visit. My pint of Ossett Madeline Lily was in very good nick although service was a bit haphazard, but it was very full. It's a friendly, busy & buzzy pub, well worth the short walk out of Stockport centre.
