user reviews of the Navigation Inn, Heaton Norris

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

My tour around Stockport's pubs eventually took me to the Heaton Norris area. First stop was this Beartown pub, just off a busy roundabout. Bearskinful was the only one of their ales one. They also had Holt's Bitter & Mild & Nethergate GB. Both the exterior and interior look as though they have seen better days. There were 3 other customers, watching 20/20 cricket on the TV in one of two fairly large rooms. I think I read that this was the local CAMRA pub of the season. But I'd struggle to justify that. There are many better pubs in the town. I moved onto the Silver Jubilee, which is not one of those better pubs and is not listed on the site. To be honest, that one is not worth adding.

Another pub that hasn't had a posting for some time - so here goes.

The Navigation is a largish pub on a busy roundabout approx a mile north of Stockport over the M60 and up Lancashire Hill.

There's a largish lounge and a small vault, both served from the one central bar.

The pub itself is somewhat unremarkable, but it is owned by the Beartown Brewery in Congleton.

The local Stockport pub guide describes the Navigation as being a thriving pub, having been turned round since its acquisition by Beartown in 2001.

However my recent Friday lunchtime visit revealed a very quiet pub with an Estate Agents board outside advertising the lease as being up for sale, so perhaps its fallen on hard times again.

There was a good range of Beartown ales on - my pint of Bearskinful ( OG 4.2% - 1.80p) was a nice hoppy pint.

Not a must visit pub by any means, but you might want to consider it, just for its unusual beers, but not unless you've done the Crown Inn and The Railway, both nearer to the town centre
