Great array of beers from their own brewery, plus a good menu of food - I kept it simple with pie, chips and mushy peas, all of which was solid pub grub. But they also do daily specials and quite a variety of food. Service was very attentive and efficient. It's a basic pub interior, by no means fine dining,... More

Fantastic place:nicely decorated and superb service by the friendly staff. The place is strategically situated and within a few minutes of many natural attractions. Good to be back in touch with Nature!

Me and my boyfriend visited the Vale on 11th Feb. We were amazed by the quality of food and the service given with it. The girl behind the bar showed excellent customer service, getting our drinks to us in a flash and with a warm friendly smile. I then ordered a lasagne that came to us in no time! It... More

I've been going to The Vale for sometime now with a group of girlfriends every month and without fail the food has been delicious (thanks to Stefano and his staff), the beer fantastic and the atmosphere just right. Don't go to Bollington without dropping in; it's well worth a visit.

We regularly visit The Vale for a quick pint on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon - the atmosphere is great, a local village pub that's cared for a lot by the owners and customers, the roaring fire is comforting especially when it's nippy outside. Their range of Bollington Brewery beers are fantastic and to think they're brewed across the road... More

Tucked away in the countryside just outside Congleton, this is a pub with its own brewery (just up the road). We tried a few of the beers on the bar - very good flavour and not expensive. Lots of walks etc around so a good walkers retreat for lunch or tea.

Visited The Vale this weekend with friends and dogs. Service was excellent from start to finish. My companions ordered the "to die for ribs" for starter - the sticky bbq sauce was awesome. I had the calamari and our friends opted for the humous and pitta bread. We were all quite full so getting through our mains was a challenge.... More

The pub is in fact a large room set in an old terraced house-not small but quite an unusual set up. They've got an open fire in the corner of the room which gives a cosy atmos so all in all; welcoming! Beers are direct from the Bollington Brewery up the road and I can highly recommend the blond 'Long... More
