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

This imposing pub with its white exterior and well-worn front steps has long been locally popular besides being a favourite on the ‘Hillgate Stagger’. It had a substantial refurbishment in 2008 when the outside toilets became a thing of the past. It is still a genuine pub but it has made a few concessions to twenty-first century trends. There has been an extension on the left side into the adjacent building to allow a more significant eating area. The pub has six different areas including the space in front of the facing long bar and some areas have signs such as ‘The Snug’ and ‘The Old Cottage’. The far right room features a pool table and a dart board; the pool table can be pushed aside if that room is required for a function, etc. There is seating aplenty of various kinds, decor features pictures of old Stockport and rural scenes that adorn the walls, there is a TV screen to the right of the bar. The two standard Robinson's beers are usually supplemented by the seasonal ale of the time. For sustenance full menus are provided (lunch and evening) plus daily specials at competitive prices. The Red Bull certainly aims to maintain its flagship operation within the Robinson's Estate.
