Pub of the Year

I went to the presentation of the Stockport and South Manchester Pub of the Year award to the Hope Inn in Stockport last night.

I voted for the Hope so was pleased when it won the award. At the top of the so-called Stockport Slope, it is Stockport's only brewpub, although the Magnet and  I learnt last night – the Crown are also in the process of building breweries on their premises. If things go to plan, it looks like Heaton Lane and Wellington Road North might soon be rivalling the Black Country for pubs brewing their own beer.

  1. You're brave, visiting Stockport. I went there once, scared the living beejesus out of me.

    I gather the strategy for traversing the town on a drinking night is to wear a fila tracksuit & baseball cap, try not to be noticed and you might make it back to the train station without getting glassed.
