The updated menu with a full vegetarian and vegan range is a rare find. Not your usual goats cheese and onion tart or mushroom risotto choices! The chef is a vegetarian so it's imaginative and gorgeous! That being said, the selection for meat eaters is...More

We visited while out dog-walking in Macclesfield Forest and enjoyed a good pint. Although we liked the look of the menu we did not eat on this occasion, but will do so in the future.

This is a traditional pub in a lovely waterside setting on the edge of Macclesfield forest. Excellent food is served lunchtime and evening. A standard menu is supplemented by a daily "blackboard" of "specials" which features the best of local produce. With a specialist chef on board we have become noted for the quality and range of our vegetarian and vegan options. We have also introduced family friendly childrens' and pizza menus both offering real value for money. The pub has a range of traditional ales including guest beers. In the winter real fires warm the stone floored bar area as well as the more formal dining area of the pub. Very popular and booking is essential at weekends. As residents of the area we aware of what the competition has to offer and feel that Leather's Smithy provides excellent food of consistent quality at a very fair price. We do not allow dogs in any part of the pub. Except guide dogs.
