A warm and friendly welcome awaits you upon your arrival.
We are a traditional town centre pub located in the heart of Macclesfield and only a few minutes walking distance from both the train and bus stations. Our pub has a real open fire surrounded by comfy chairs for you to enjoy on those cold winter evenings, where you can relax with your favourite tipple. We also have a lending library with a great selection of both books and DVD’s for you to borrow. All we ask is that you return them once you have finished with them and maybe bring us some of your old ones that you no longer want.
We are renowned locally as having the best beer garden in town. Well, it’s more of a yard than a garden, however it is a lovely place to sit and while away a few hours. You wouldn’t think you’re in the centre of the town with all the different flowers and plants. We also have some artwork on the walls with famous Blues and Jazz artists, created by a few local artists. One particular artist signed his with a mouse – see if you can find them all!
We take great pride in being a community pub. Although we are not a football pub, we do show other major sporting events and have a crib and darts team. Local bands play from time to time usually on a Sunday evening from 6pm. Anyone interested in coming to see a band should keep an eye on our facebook page as we advertise them on there and also posters dotted throughout the pub.
During your visit to ‘The Jolly’ you will notice our unique, somewhat eclectic décor. We have several items of interest dotted about the pub such as antique items, old signage and advertising slogans all collected and proudly displayed by our rather eccentric landlord! For those interested in the history of the town there are quite a few pictures adorning our walls depicting Macclesfield as it was a century or more ago. There is always something of interest to look at and talk about.
