See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Large, impressive Grade II listed house (on CAMRA's National Inventory of historic pub interiors too) set in a residential area away from the centre of Edgeley. Consisting of five rooms - Bar Parlour, Commercial, Tap Room, Smoke, and Billiard room, that are almost in the state they were built in 1911. Each room is simply and neatly decorated, and each bears the inscription of its purpose in the etched door glass. All of these radiate from a superbly tiled drinking lobby with its curved bar counter, and a modest display of brasses and a ship's wheel. The tiling continues up an impressive staircase (that originally would have taken you to the hotel's letting rooms), this has a wonderful arched, leaded window at its head. More leaded and faceted glass survives in the form of screens, and in the top lights of the Bar Parlour. Most rooms have the original fitted seating around their walls, and impressive door casings with arched pediments. The Billiard room, containing a pool table these days, is a high-ceiling space reached via a corridor. Outside is a neat cobbled and covered drinking area divided into two raised parts. This is more than an architectural study however; this is a pub with a good local following in the community. A quiz takes place on an evening mid-week, whilst darts teams use the vault to its full.
