Thank you for being a supporter of our business. As a result of the current COVID-19 outbreak, we have made the most difficult decision we could make, to close this business. This is a temporary measure, and this decision has not been taken lightly, but has been made in order to provide protection for our team, guests and shareholders.
Thank you once again for your past support, please keep in touch via our Facebook page, and we cannot wait to celebrate with you when we re-open !!
Stay safe and healthy, look after your loved ones and thank-you again for your past loyalty.

An easy drinking, traditional session bitter, brewed with lots of crystal malt for caramel flavour and extra body and balanced with the finest British hops We had to name our traditional, caramel session bitter with its ruby red colour, in honour of the first born calf of 2016 for the Bollin Valley Partnership herd of Longhorn cattle. Born on 9th January Bollin ‘Ruby’ is the most adorable calf and certainly measures up to her pedigree status. Ruby and her herd can be seen grazing throughout the Bollin Valley.
Stouts & Porters - Smoked Porter
The 1st EP of local band The !975 is our inspiration for the name of our dark and smoky, Winter Porter. Much like the band’s mantra in that they want to produce music that ticks every single one of your boxes’, we feel the same way about our beer.
English Style Ale - Single Hop Pale Ale
Hoppy, Refreshing, Always Changing – Our Single Hop Pale ale is made with almost as much precision as the Fustian Cutters of 17th Century Wilmslow had to exert over their highly skilled, specialist craft of preparing this strong fabric of cotton and linen, used extensively for clothing and furnishings and whose usage continues today.
English Style Ale - Harvest Ale
Fresh Green Hops – In tribute to a famous Wilmslow resident who (aside from a few other notable achievements……), has been entirely responsible for altering the definition of what we have come to know as that everyday (useful) item the ‘hairdryer – ‘a hand-held electric device that blows out hot air used to assist drying hair’ to that of ‘a fiery tirade of locker room rage that strikes fear into whoever is on the end of it…..’
American Style Ale - Cream Ale
Extra Pale & Refreshing – A play on the lovely motto of Wilmslow town ‘Nobis Habitatio Felix’ which translates as ‘A Pleasant Dwelling Place for Us’. Relax and enjoy a pint of Happy Felix and we hope you will regard us as a pleasant place for you to dine and eat’
Wheat Beer - Witbier
Cloudy, Orange, Coriander – It’s definitely summer when you start to see Sacrecrows invading Wilmslow. Bringing lots of fun and colour to the town with a variety of creations from scary to amusing, we have added to the festivities with our seasonal summer Witbier.
IPAs - Rye IPA
Ruby, Spicy, Hoppy – In celebration of all the Wilmslow residents over the centuries who have played their part in the development of the textile industry and their part in the industrial heritage of our country, from bale breakers, cotton weavers or spinners to Hot Pressers, raise a glass of our complex Rye IPA.
Stouts & Porters - Traditional Porter
Rich, Roast, Chocolatey – The amazing archeological find of a perfectly preserved Iron Age man in a dank, dark, peaty bog in 1984 named ‘Lindow Man’ is our inspiration for naming our dark and tasty Porter. Conserved for over 2,000 years this remarkable find has granted us an insight into life 2,000 years ago. Experts concluded that Lindow Man’s diet was predominantly based on cereals, in direct contrast to his European counterparts during the Iron Age whose diets were wide and varied – no change there then!
IPAs - Traditional IPA
Bitter, Strong, Hoppy – British entrepreneur and founder of Quarry Bank Mill (cited as one of Britain’s greatest industrial heritage sites) is said to have led a fortunate life. Adopted by his uncle at a young age, he not only was well educated and well-travelled, he later inherited a small fortune which he put to good use by founding Quarry Bank Mill. It is said that although working conditions were still tough at the mill, Samuel was kinder to his workforce than many of that era.
It is reported by many footballing pundits that 1966 was a great year for English football…..it was the year the legendary Manchester United player ‘Eric Cantona’ was born! Regarded as the man who conquered the Premier League and sparked United’s golden age of dominance, the chants of ‘Ooh Ahh Cantona” resounded every time he played. As he turned his attention to acting, Cantona was perfect casting in the Ken Loach film ‘Looking for Eric’ whose protagonist is a depressed postman seeking inspiration and life coaching from his imaginary friend, the great man himself. Filmed in and around Wilmslow, it is a popular and enjoyable film.
American Pale Ale
Hoppy, Grapefruit, Resinous – A small tribute to the sheer genius of one-time Wilmslow Resident ‘Alan Turing’s lasting impression on life today; not only to peace as we know it through deciphering the enigma code, but in the fabric of our modern ‘computerised’ world…. It’s almost impossible to put into words the extent of how Alan’s work has impacted our lives. Suffice to say the man was an enigma in his own time, one that we are only just beginning to figure out.
Cask Lager - Kolsch Style Ale
Clean, Pale, Refreshing – As a tribute to the many new recruits who started their RAF training here in Wilmslow at the camp which stood on the site of modern day Summerfields, between the years of 1938 and 1962. Recruited with a view to becoming Mechanics, Drivers, Coders, Communication Officers and Parachute Packers to name but a few of the roles on offer…….for these brave women.
