Unfortunately we did not get sufficient support for an outing to the Thornbridge brewery at Bakewell so this has to be postponed until we get a larger number of members involved in our group (I do have a plan!). So, we refocus and March will be an overdue visit to the Chiverton Tap a ‘stable mate’ of the Mounting Stone. Chiverton Tap is an award winning pub that is listed in CAMRA’s 2018 Good Beer Guide making it one of the best 22 pubs for beer in Stockport & South Manchester. A range of real ales always on offer and usually a selection of real ciders. The Tap comprises of a bright open space with plenty of seating and friendly staff.
Our meeting will be at 2pm on Friday the 23rd of March (the same day as we had planned for the now postponed Bakewell trip). Its situated on Mellor Road (number 8) Cheadle Hulme, SK8 5AU. It’s a 1-minute stroll from Cheadle Hulme station which can be accessed easily from Stockport, Bramhall, Handforth and Wilmslow stations. For busses from Bramhall there are a number of options – 42B, 307/308 and the 313 but this relies on a connection with the 378 at the Pointing Dog with only 5 minutes between them so probably safer to ignore.
