Rumour has it, in the not too distant future Congleton will be the new “Aldery Edge”. It has always been a town where a drink can be enjoyed, however recent investment has seen the number of eateries and bars develop greater footfall with further exciting plans bound to enhance this town’s growing reputation.
Capital Walk, who we are delighted to call our neighbours will shortly be opening, delivering drinks and flavours from around the world, there is the beautiful Lion and Swan and the contemporary Radley which sits below. The newly opened Higher Ground is a must-visit, ale fans should pop a visit to the Wonky Pear, Young Pretender, Barleyhops and Beartown tap in their calendar. The Crazy Moose is a unique and fun bar, there is the ever-popular DV8, funky Rumba and trendy Ariba. Not forgetting you curry lovers start your night at Purple Pakora, the rogan josh is a particular favourite of the SB team!
