About Leathers Smithy

Dating form the 18th Century and standing in beautiful surroundings, on the edge of Macclesfield Forest Reservoir, this stone built inn, formerly a smithy, gets its name from William Leather who you will see on copies of our menu. In 1812 he obtained the first license to sell ale and porter.
A popular haunt with walkers, fishermen and country lovers, it is only a mile from Peak Park and three miles from the busy market town of Macclesfield.
A warm inviting interior with real fires welcomes the visitor, a stone flagged bar area, a carpeted lounge area, and a non-smoking family room cater for all tastes. The menu is extensive and varied, form a single sandwich to a Lobster Thermadore, followed by delicious sweets and coffee.
