In research undertaken by Pub Heritage Group member, Chris Witt, he was told by the owners, Robinson’s of Stockport, that it was here when they acquired the pub back in 1929 from Kay’s Atlas Brewery of Ardwick, Manchester. Where it came from and when is unknown but was probably brought from a gentry house at some stage. Fanciful tales abound of it having been salvaged from ships, even, according to one version, from vessels in the Spanish Armada. 5 rooms plus an entrance hall. Late 17c building. Worthwhile visiting the Oak Room, with it's distinctive 1920's style. In 1978 when an extension was added and the servery was moved from the right of the pub to its present 'island bar' position so the present bar counter, bar back and some seating, are replacements.
