More than Rugby – The Rodney

Geoff and Gill Leigh-Ford are the Landlords of The Admiral Rodney or ‘The Rodney’, as it is affectionately known. They are local people who had been away from Cheshire since 1998 but returned in April 2016, to specifically take over this great Inn which used to be their local pub too. 

Having originated from the area and owned previous businesses in the village (including The White House, Flutters Bistro and Thymes Bistro) they are very happy to be now back “home” to welcome old and new customers. Traditional home cooking is offered at lunchtime from 12-2.30 pm. The Rodney stays open all day from 11 am for drinks and tea/coffee, (12 midday on Sundays) and offers an array of Robinsons’ Ales from an Award Winning Cellar, a good selection of Lagers, a choice of Quality Wines by the Glass and a wide range of Gins and Whiskies. They happily cater for events such as funerals, christenings, birthday parties and other gatherings.

Children and Dogs are welcome.  There is an area at the back of the Inn facing Pearl Street which has outdoor seating and is a fabulous sun trap.

A traditional pub (such a rare gem in this day and age) without slot machines, pool tables or background music, The Rodney remains steadfastly constant in its warmth and friendliness.

The Rodney are sponsors of Macclesfield RUFC, support most of our social events and attend several matches per season.

As have many pubs the Rodney have had to close the business due to Covid-19 and therefore worryingly have no income, the staff are without jobs for the time being and the focus of being a community social hub (for many different reasons including important social interaction and wellbeing for some) is absent.

On the positive side, like other householders and businesses, it has given them the chance to spruce up the pub by decorating and doing many other jobs they have been meaning to do. To add to this some intuitive Prestbury residents have very kindly set up a website for the local hospitality businesses – see https://buynoweatlater.com/

“We look forward to welcoming everyone back soon – won’t we all enjoy imbibing and talking to each other in person again” Gill Leigh-Ford
