Swan With Two Necks, Stockport ⭐️

Traditional Town Pub, 3* Heritage Pub

The Swan with Two Necks is a proper traditional pub in the centre of Stockport with consistently good ale. It was built in 1926 by Robinson’s Brewery in a mock tudor style (photo 1) and has kept most of its original interior features and fittings.

The front door leads to a corridor which opens out into a northern style drinking lobby with wood panelled walls (photo 4). The room first left is the Vault also with panelled walls, a piano in the corner and a maroon leather sofa and armchair (photos 2 & 3). The second room on the left after the lobby is the smoke room, again wood panelled and with fixed upholstered seating with bell pushes on three sides. The last room was added in the 1960s and has red velour fixed seating and a Victorian style fireplace (photo 7).

At the end the corridor is a stained glass window showing a swan with two necks (photo 6). There is a similar window at the front of the pub, looking into the vault (photos 2 & 5).  Outside is a nice walled beer garden with an awning.

Cask beers are from Robinsons and include Unicorn Bitter, Dizzy Blonde and, in winter, Old Tom. Keg ales are Pitch Stout and Hopnik IPA and lagers are from Coors and Moretti. Lunchtime food is a choice of three types of pie with mash. In warmer months there is live music in the garden.
