Our Branch..

Besides Macclesfield, our branch includes Congleton, Holmes Chapel, Knutsford, Wilmslow and surrounding areas. Postcodes covered are CW12, CW4, WA16, SK9, SK10 & SK11 (in Cheshire).

Regional POTY 2013 voting

Each year, the branch is asked to vote on the other "Pub of the year" entries in the Cheshire area as part of the regional competition. Likewise, the other Cheshire branches will be visiting the Wharf in Macclesfield and Queens in Congleton. If we don't take part in this competition, our POTY entries won't go forward into the regional and then potentially the national competition. We're attempting to do this by public transport this year split into two events:

Tue 11th June: Crewe evening trip to visit Hops & Borough Arms
Sat 15th June: Day trip to visit the rest

Apologies from only giving times from Macclesfield but to cover all other options would be too complex.

Crewe trip Tue 11th June

Evening trip to Crewe to scoop up the Hops & Borough Arms. Train departs Macclesfield 17:41, arrives Crewe 18:27. Return 21:31 arrive Macclesfield 22:28. That gives three hours and the two pubs are close to each other.

Day trip Sat 15th June

A rather challenging timetable-wise trip around Cheshire. We can only pray that everything is on time and that nothing is cancelled. If this happens, then the trip will have to be adjusted on the fly with a potential last-minute trip to any missed on the Sunday.

A couple of the stations are small and won't have a taxi rank so we need numbers in advance in order to book taxis.
