Famously the first Stockport pub to offer changing guest beers, the pub is now in the capable hands of Steve Brannan and Johanne Quinn, both huge fans of real ale.
There are six handpumps on the bar, one dedicated to Westons Vintage Cider and the other five dispensing an ever-changing range of guest beers from all over the UK. Steve says that some 1,200 different ales have passed through the pumps since he took over, many supplied by Dave Ball ('The Major') of the Really Nice Beer Co. The consistent quality of the beer has made the pub a seemingly permanent fixture in the Good Beer Guide .
While the interior is basically open-plan, it has a multi-room feel and the cosy atmosphere is enhanced by the open fire in the winter months. The atmosphere is enhanced by the decoration in classic 1930s??? junk shop style with memorabilia from forgotten eras adorning the walls, shelves and any other available area ??? all tastefully done and providing interesting topics of conversation, with Steve being able to provide a history of most, if not all, of the items on view. To the rear of the pub is a stepped marquee covered area that may be available for private functions during the summer months, and effectively doubles the size of what is quite a tiny pub.
