Good Beer Guide

Olde Vic, Stockport (_Ye Olde Vic)

1 Chatham Street, Edgeley, Stockport, SK3 9ED (Directions)
Improve This Listing

The first Stockport pub to offer a changing range of guest beers and still flying the flag (or two in the Vic’s case) for choice and quality, as evidenced by the pump clip ‘ceiling’ above the bar. This is a tight ship affably run by larger than life licensee Steve Brannan. No swearing rules are strictly enforced but this is an easy-going pub with a warm welcome for everyone. To the rear of the pub is a stepped marquee covered area that may be available for private functions during the summer months, and effectively doubles the size of what is quite a tiny pub. An outside bar can be brought into use when very busy. Six handpumps dispense an ever-changing range of guest beers, mostly focusing upon local micro-breweries. Details of these are displayed on the "pumpotron" TV screen. You can also sample three different ales in third-of-a-pint measures for the price of a pint. Alternate Weds are folk music nights. While the interior is basically open-plan, it has a multi-room feel and the cosy atmosphere is enhanced by the open fire in the winter months. The atmosphere is enhanced by the decoration in classic 1930s junk shop style with memorabilia from forgotten eras adorning the walls, shelves and any other available area - all tastefully done and providing interesting topics of conversation, with Steve being able to provide a history of most, if not all, of the items on view. All together this is a fine must-visit pub! Note the pub is only open in the evenings. Sunday closing time may vary. On other days, last entry is 10.30pm. It is open from 12.30 on Saturdays when Stockport County are playing at home.

Historic Interest

Originally the Victoria Vaults, it sold cask Wilsons Mild and Bitter till the early 1980s when a change of ownership brought about Ye Olde Vic identity and introduction of cask choice, such as Tetley Mild, Bitter, and Everards Tiger alongside the Wilsons.
