Welcome to a website dedicated to the pubs of Cheadle Staffordshire.

Some of the pubs are still open, many however are closed and lost forever. This site is an ongoing project and welcomes any information and/or suggestions from readers, if you have anything to say don’t hesitate get in touch.

To the right is a list of all the public houses that (to my knowledge) either were, or are in Cheadle. Each pub has it’s own page where there is a small amount of information about the pub (years in business etc), hopefully this shall be updated on a regular basis.

Please note I am just an amateur historian and this is purely an outlet for my research. If any copyright, or any other legal issue, is touched upon at any point on this site please contact me and I will rectify the problem as soon as possible.

    Hi Mike, speaking as an outsider, would it be possible to attach a map showing where the pubs actually are in relation to each other?

      Mike has embedded a suitably annotated map within the description of many of the pubs (primarily the disappeared ones). Well done Mike.

    The White Hart Inn is not mentioned in this site.

    Alton directory 1851
    Inns and taverns

    Bull’s Head, Alderman B. Kidd
    Red Lion, William Lees
    Swan, Josiah Bowler
    Talbot, Ann Weston

    George Collis [with wife Susannah Ann Collis nee Clewley] was the innkeeper of the White Hart Inn. Their daughters Elizabeth, Emma and Hannah ran a summer resort and the tea rooms at Alton Towers, and after their father died in 1860, they also ran the White Hart Inn.
