This pub is in Rainow, adjacent village to Bollington!

SatNav – OS: SJ952762, Postcode: SK10 5XF


Standing on the boundary of the Peak District National Park, the Robin Hood is the only remaining pub in the village of Rainow. The Robin Hood is a very pleasant, cozy, pub with a good sized restaurant serving good food. It is a Punch Taverns house.

September 2017: New tenants have taken over and the pub is OPEN and offering the usual quality real ales but at lower prices than before. Add to that a selection of Scrumpy Cider and gin we are sure that the pub will thrive once again.

“We, the village and customers, offer our sincerest best wishes to Jayne and her family as they work hard to keep Rainow’s last pub serving the community and visitors. We would also like to thank Rob, Suzanne, James and their team for their efforts over the last couple of years.”

Four B&B rooms. All with en-suite, TV, coffee and tea making facilities.
