A detached, rendered public house opposite the Peel Centre. A single bar along the rear wall serves all areas of this open plan pub. Run since July 2001 by the affable, Sue Igbon, the Queens has become very much a locals’ community pub with a loyal band of regulars supplemented by a fair amount of passing trade. It’s basically a wet-led pub with food restricted to sandwiches which are available from noon every day. The pub was given an external makeover a couple of years ago then in in early 2017 Robinsons gave the interior a bit of a sparkle to match that. Everything is bright and airy while still keeping a traditional feel, note the vintage pictures of Stockport which adorn the walls. Look out too for Sue’s collection of bottle openers hanging behind the bar – donations are always welcome! One new feature is the spectacular surround around one of the two dartboards (the pub hosts three teams) which was painted by one of the regulars. It’s very eye catching and is a real feature. Apart from the darts there is also televised live sport and occasional live music. In fact, popular local band the Casino Allstars practices at the pub on most Thursday nights and occasionally put on a live performance too. The Queens has adopted Francis House as its charity and funds are raised by a weekly bonus ball and also a book club. There are three letting rooms which are popular with contractors working locally.
