About The Vale Inn

Award winning ales & great home cooked food

Since reopening in March 2005, the Vale Inn has established itself as a real ale and fresh food community pub. Close to the recreation ground, Middlewood Way and the Macclesfield Canal, there are two beer gardens and a large car park. Inside offers an open, friendly feeling — a touch of the original 1980s refurbishment remains with the original slate bar and a taste of the new with a redesigned back bar and wooden floor. A real fire completes the homely feel.

The reputation for real ale started with being awarded CAMRA Pub of the Summer 2006 and since then has gone from strength to strength, until being awarded Macclesfield & East Cheshire Pub of the Year 2007. Our real ales mainly comes direct from our own micro brewery Bollington Brewing, but we also have two pumps serving guest ales from other micro breweries. We now also serve two real ciders.

Our fresh food menu combines a mixture of dishes and we try to change the menu regularly rather than just having a set menu with a specials board. This allows us flexibility when certain items aren’t available due to seasonality or the price changes.

Our close connections with the community mean we do various fund raising activities for local organisations; this includes holding a Race Night for the award winning Bridgend Centre. We also provide all the cricket teas and sponsor the Bollington Cricket Club and hold fund raising events. Lots of groups also use the pub as a base including the various Bollington Festival sub committees.

In 2009 the Bollington Brewing Company is also proud to be the main sponsors of Bollington Cricket Club and Bosley Tug of War Team. Good luck to both of them in their current seasons. News will be on our website as it happens.

We always work hard to provide a good mixture of food and drink to appeal to all ages and provide an atmosphere where anyone can feel relaxed and welcome.
