Description:
The baths really is tucked away on the back streets, well worth visiting though, if only to look at the sign outside, and the toilets of course.

On the pub sign is a naked man having a bath, with a slug moustache and scrubbing his back!

Anyone familiar with the Macc Lads, and more importantly their support act Eddie Sh*t, will notice that the man with the curly tash has an uncanny resemblence to Mr Edward Stool !!

In many ways this is the pub that time forgot, there is nothing modern about this place, but that doesn't mean its a crap pub. In fact it is full of character.

Go in the front door, and the room to your right contains the bar. The bar is an old-fashioned wooden construction at the back of the room. Boddingtons on tap, with Carling, Guinness etc, not a bad pint too. A nice touch on our visit was a free "help yourself" bowl of crisps on the bar, a charming gesture.

Retire to the front room for period 1960s / 70s seating. Grey plasticy leathery seating, a must see, a few stools too, sit and relax by the fire, very cosy.

The room to the rear contains a pool table.

You will find a "still" atmosphere, and few people, but you should fit in just fine.

The old sh*thouse is to the rear!

The room is bluey/grey walled, with some white tiling. The floor tiles are typical red and brown patterned.

There is a large P*ss Stone in here, must be quite old, and has a nice Aroma De P*ss, as a visiting Frenchmen may comment!

A white stone, with piping to the top, not too well tidied away to the left, and the sink empties into the basin too! Some p*ss soaps though, so a game of p*ss polo should make you feel better!

The sink is basic, hot and cold taps, a yellow bar of soap, and a blue hand towel, clips into a rubber sucker on the wall. Simple, but magnificent all the same!

By the towel is the door to the crapper, lets have a look shall we...

The bog is white with a black seat. All in good order and intact. There is a simple metal roll holder, which was holding a complete roll on this occasion. a pipe disappears through the wall, and the feed pipe runs off diagonally.

There is a cistern in the main p*ss room. this provides the urinal cleansing, and it is attractively positioned above the sink area on two blue metal holders, very nice indeed, oh and you might notice the mirror when you look up to this too.

As you leave, check out the white door, with top frosted glass panel and the nice "Gentlemen" sign.

A quaint little pub that keeps itself to itself, recommended.

Update 2009:

A few years back, this pub got an extensive refit, and as of 2009 has been under new owenership, with the new owners wanting to stamp a new identity on the pub.

The current incarnation features A Bar Billiards Table, and they will soon be serving Pizzas cooked outdoors in a wood-burning pizza oven! Friday Nights are Tapas Nights too!

Great Staff, Great Ales, and Great Loos now too, Bar-Maid Emily has supplied some new photos...

The toilets now have white walls.

The sink area, in the photo supplied, is next nice grey wooden cabinet worktop, with a plant on it, and also soap, and under a mirror etc - nice to see!

There are paper towels, and a pedal bin.

The toilet cubicles are spacey, white loos with light brown wood seats.

Toilet rolls sit on vertical plastic stands, and the ladies loos have sanitation bins.

Why not pay a visit to The New Baths? Lets hope the new baths is around for a long time, a much welcomed alternative pub on the Macclesfield pub scene.

Update - Feb 2011:

We are back for a long awaited return visit to the Baths in Macc..

What can we say... this is a super pub.

Friendly Landlord, Great Beer / Real Ale Selection, Plants, Nice Deocr, Friendly Atmosphere, Superb!

I had a pint of Bicenteniale, brewed by the local Bollington Brewing Company to celebrate 200 Years of the Macclesfield Express Newspaper. A Delicious Tipple it was too!

The pub was busy, on a Friday night, depite poor weather.

The bogs are to the back of the pub, past th Wurlitzer! The area may be busy, it is also the passage to the smoking area.

Here still is the historic p*ss trough and sink area, and single cubicle, but nicely kept and in a nicely decorated room with stencilled Rats all over it! All was clean and well loved.

The sink worked well, with both taps running.

The toilet room looks a little dark in our photo, but it was adequately lit, with loo roll, bog brush, lock, and pull flush!

On the window cill, rat motif's running by the side, was more crap roll and some domestos, see photo, next to the pull flush cistern.

A real pub, with real beer, and great historic sh*thouses!

“Mint ambience, mint staff, mint beer, basically mint, well off the beaten track and away from the "usual lot." Will go back again and again!”
