The Samuel Oldknow

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. Spread over two floors with a real fire and outside drinking area.

Five continuously changing, locally sourced beers and up to eight traditional ciders are available as well as craft and imported lagers and an extensive variety of world bottled beers. A comprehensive selection of wines and spirits complements this range.

Tea, coffee, bar snacks, and pork pies from our local butcher DS Whites, are also 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. Board games and free Wi-Fi.
