A building of some age (see prominent plaque on outside wall), it is a large, corner pub that attracts the nearby Stockport College crowd, also very handy for the municipal buildings, and Art Gallery / War Memorial. Although opened-out internally, the vestiges of walls and pillars produce intimate areas in the pub. A good-looking bar and an octagonal-mirrored ceiling piece add interest. Lunches are Mon-Fri 11.45-2.45. The beer range may well be extended if there is demand. There are active darts and pools teams, a quiz every Thu, while bands and groups play occasionally on a Fri or Sat (see details posted at the pub).
