Nestled in the centre of Marple pedestrian precinct, The multi-award-winning Samuel Oldknow provides a cosy refuge from the hustle and bustle of Market Streets shops.

We also stock a comprehensive selection of wine and spirits including an extensive gin range.

When possible our cask selection includes vegetarian/vegan-friendly choices. Our standard wine list is fully vegan-friendly.

Tea, coffee, bar snacks, and pork pies are available. Customers are welcome to bring in food from our numerous neighbouring eateries.

Well located for local walking routes and transport. Muddy boots and dogs are welcome.
