A very traditional exterior and home to the Fool Hardy brewery,this is a proper boozer.There are two room,so head right for the real ale pumps.This room has a raised section to one side,fitted bench seating with stools and a lived in feel.At the bar there will be 6 Fool Hardy ales along with 5 guests which on my trip were Salopian Rhapsody,Kingdom's Bitter,Isaac Poad 84 IPA,Abbeydale Absolution and Outstanding Brewery 3.9. The home ales will rotate depending on the brewing cycle ,my Risky Blonde was in good shape and all ales sampled by the crew were well kept.
The left hand vault contains 9 kegs and real ciders and the beer menu describes a very large bottle selection .It is clear that everyone here is motivated by the persuit of beer excellence ,and although this was the first stop on a crawl of Stockport,it remained one of the best visited.Don't miss out on this gem.

A red brick pub with two decent sized rooms. The left hand room is more of a taproom with a pinball machine and table football. The right hand room is more of a lounge, fairly basic, but comfortable. This is the home of Fool Hardy ales and there were 6 of their beers on the bar plus 4 guests. There's a small beer yard to the rear, but it wasn't the weather for it on my visit. I really liked this one, it's a very good pub. I'll definitely be back.

Home of the Fool Hardy Brewery Jan 2013. They won local Camra Pub of the Year this year, and after visiting you can see why. The pub consists of two rooms, a traditional lounge side on the left, with bar, and the busier bar side on the right, with the main bar. We went into the main bar, where we found 11 handpumps, displaying 5 of their Fool Hardy ales, plus guests.
We tried the Fool Hardy Rou Shou, Risky Blond and Reckless, all were excellent and full of taste. We also went for the Red Willow Mirthless, Kite Brewery Billywynt and Ma Pardoe's Old Swan Ale. I also managed a half of cider named Malvern Magic, which was also in great shape. Staff and fellow drinkers were friendly and chatty.
