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

Despite its well lit exterior this traditional street corner local can easily be overlooked hidden away as it is from the hurly-burly of the main roads through Reddish (yet barely 100 yards from Reddish South station and ½ mile from Reddish Vale Country Park). In the recently refurbished lounge, above one of the two ornate fireplaces, is a photo of the original thatched pub in 1882 with workmen outside who the story has it, were in the process of building the current pub. The other picture in the lounge is of the pub over a century later just after a renovation following a major fire. The other side of the central bar is a more basic yet comfortable vault which is divided into two and in the yard to the rear is a well appointed garden. Occasional entertainment. NB. although the nearest rail station is Reddish South, this is only served by one "parliamentary" train per week; this runs early in the morning outside of pub opening hours. Best bet is to use the high-frequency bus service. Often had a Saturday evening promotion of the Sharp's at £1.50 a pint.
