In here late afternoon on Saturday after a game at Stockport County.
Nice enough Robinsona house with Unicorn and Trooper in fine form.

Average Robinsons pub handy for the station. The clientele on a Saturday lunchtime was certainly of an ageing variety. The music playing was to suit said clientele. There are 2 similar sized rooms. We picked the lounge, which was quite busy. The lounge was carpeted and fairly cosy. Only Robinsons real ales were available - Dizzy Blonde, Hatters & Unicorn. Not far from Stockport County's football ground, this could be a handy stop when here for a match or indeed changing trains, as we were. But not worth a special visit.

Classic Robbie's pub, well maintained and serving nice pints, music far too loud though.

Visited for game against Colchester - Very friendly pub right near Edgely Pk - Robinsons Ales kept in good knick - let's hope County sort finances out as some great pubs around the town.

Classic Robbies local, slightly smarter than I remember in early '00s, but still unpretentious and welcoming. Excellent Hatters; didn't see Old Tom on.

Popped in here on the way back to the statiuon. Robinsons Unicorn, Hatters, and Disst Blonde, sparkled to death as is usual in these parts. Front and back bars, Sky Sports showing. A little inconsistent with door policy as some of our lads got turned away whereas others in colours were let in.

Locals were friendly and OK as a pit stop.

A classic multi-roomed no-food local pub, with consistently good beer. Has a surprisingly spacious beer garden at the rear.

Had a great night here. A proper pub, friendly locals and top barstaff. Quality

Made my first visit to this pub over the weekend, bustling locals pub with Unicorn, Hatters, Old Tom and Mr Scrooge available. I opted for the Mr Scrooge at a very reasonable £2.04, and it was in very good nick. Also available was Chocolate Tom in bottles, which I bought for later! I was shortchanged by a fiver, but this was soon rectified with a till check, and the barmaid was very friendly. The locals were a little bit drunk by the time we arrived and perhaps intimidating to the female members of the group, but it was the last Friday before Christmas yada yada... Worth a visit I reckon.

Last pint here before the football on Saturday. Traditional Robinsons pub with three hand pumps; Hatters, Unicorn and Old Tom. The pub has two bar areas and a back room. They did not mind removing the sparkler and I certainly preferred the beer without it. Another very reasonable priced pint and pretty friendly. We also returned here after the game before the train home as conveniant for the station. It was quite sunny in the lounge after the football, a local customer went to close the blinds and it came off the wall.

Used to be my pitstop post train North & pre train South before I discovered the range at the Crown down bottom of the hill. I really must visit again soon for some superbly kept Robinsons Unicorn. A real local feel; contrary to others below, I’ve never been on match day but used to love sinking a few great pints (I love a good Robbies) and absorbing the local lingo – a kind of acclimatisation back into the fold. Great stuff. And at about £1.85 a pint, you can afford to tell those welcoming barstaff to keep the change from yer 2 quid, ‘and your own’ - it’s the done thing round here!

Traditional Robinsons community local in Shaw Heath, slightly to the west of the town centre

There is a large and comfortable, but somewhat featureless, lounge, The vault and darts room are mainly used by the more mature drinker, it would appear.

There's an outside drinking area at the back.

There's some glasswork in the doors, indicative of the fact that the pub was previously owned by Bells, a small local brewer taken over by Robinsons in 1949.

The Armoury is a pleasant enough place, but there's no real reason to specifically visit, unless you're going to a match at nearby Stockport County F C.

Decent location for football fans, both home or visiting supporters, not the best choice of beer and a pokey beer garden to the rear.

Personally stopped going in here due to local armchair 'football fans' who don't seem to want real fans from Stockport drinking in here and make them feel unwelcome whilst they play darts on matchday despite having every other day of the week to play pub games.

Robinson's pub on the roundabout at the top of the road leading to Stockport County FC. As it is the first pub you see when arriving by train it is also a meeting place for visiting supporters who seem to be welcomed by the landlord and tolerated by the locals. Standard Robinson's offering of Unicorn Bitter and Hatters Mild and they also have Old Tom at £1.30 a half. Rolls available from behind the bar. Friendly place for a beer, it was a bit packed when we were there as Hartlepool were in town. Bizarrely there was also a Japanese film crew wandering around the pub.
