Real Ales ‘Round Romiley

A selection of public houses around Romiley noted for real ales and food

One of the upsides of our semi rural location is how close we are to Manchester as well as the Peak District. Home to many established businesses such as Romiley Board Mill, suppliers of cardboard tubes and other packaging, the area around Romiley, Marple and Compstall is also noted for real ales and fine food. Whether your choice of hostelry is cheap and cheerful, or swish, there are enough pubs along the Goyt and Etherow valleys to choose from.

What’s more, many of them are a modest taxi ride away, or a walk. Should you choose to stop at any of the pubs and take the bus, the 383 and 384 circular routes to Compstall, Marple and Stockport have regular journeys.

Sometimes you fancy something more adventurous than a takeaway. You might want to take a break from the cooking and let somebody else do it for you.
