Early festive event: Stockport 3 pub minicrawl ending with jazz at the Railway.

  • December 1, 2013 · 5:00 PM
  • The Hope

This stretch of the A6 road leading into Stockport town centre has a cluster of great pubs. 

Kick off advent with a mini-crawl of three distinctive pubs on Wellington Road North, the main A6 road, just to the north of Stockport Town Centre. 

We start at the Hope, with its wonderful Hardy Crown Ales frontage. Since February this has been a multi-beer free house and has iits own microbrewery brewing its range of Foolhardy ales.

Across the way and a couple of minutes down the hill I the Magnet, Regional and local CAMRA pub of the year for 2011, with a wide range of cask beer, real cider and foreign bottled beers.

Our final stop is at the Railway, another pub of character with a range of beers. This pub features live jazz on Sunday evenings from 9.00pm so we will arrive by 8.30 to ensure we get a seat.

Come along whenever you can make it! We will be joined at this event by members of Manchester Socialites and, for the jazz, members of the Manchester Arts, Music and Culture Lovers Meetup group. 

UPDATE: All three pubs are participants in Stockport and South Manchester CAMRA's Winter Warmer Wander promotion:

    Probably a good job it was a small group on this occasion otherwise we might have been in even more trouble at the railway for talking. The last time anything like that happened to me I got sent to the headmaster. At least they didn't give us lines (for any younger readers that isn't a reference to cocaine! )

    A small but perfectly formed group of us enjoyed some excellent beer at all three pubs- good to meet Andrew and Jonny for the first time.

      Hi Richard, is there a way on this system to invite members of another group to an event on this group. It's late in the day but it occurs to me that some members of "Four Heatons Get Connected", being local to tonight's event, might be interested if they were aware of it.

      The only way I can think of Steve are 1. If you're an organiser for 4 Heatons you can email all the members?; 2. Post it as a suggested event; 3. Put something on the group discussion board.

    Hi Richard - I'm hoping to come down and meet you guys around 730-8 for a couple of pints. Need to nip into Manc city centre to meet some friends who are visiting but should be back by then. Will give you a shout to see where you all are by that point
