This trail takes in 13 pubs and bars around Leek, plus a selection of shops and markets, all offering some of the UK's finest ales and beers. The pubs and bars along the trail all have something different to offer; some are traditional pubs in period buildings, others are modern establishments with a focus on dining and one is even said to be haunted! All, however have been selected for their welcoming atmosphere, comfortable surroundings and of course, the range of ales available.
All the venues are within walking distance of one another, however there are so many great places to
visit that you can’t possibly see them all in one trip so come back again and enjoy your favourite beer in another of Leek's excellent pubs. You can be sure of a warm welcome.
