SatNav – OS: SJ939779, Postcode: SK10 5RE, ///surgical.baker.computers


A gem, a small town pub of the old style, cosy, a good place to drink beer, and lacking any modern features! Cleaned up and given a coat of paint without spoiling it’s traditional feel. CASH PREFERRED

The Cotton Tree was badly damaged by the flooding that occurred during heavy rain on 31st July 2019, and was closed for several weeks while repairs were carried out. This was not the first time the cellar was flooded but ground floor damage was more serious. A public collection raised £3,500 pounds towards the Blackshaw’s losses. We were very pleased to see the pub re-open in late September 2019 – with the cellar now installed on the ground floor to try and reduce the damage in any future flood!
