The Flying Dutchman

The Flying Dutchman, Stockport, Cheshire

A compact modern pub towards the top end of the famous Hillgate, that was effectively totally rebuilt by Robinson’s brewery about twenty-five years ago. The sign (visible on StreetView) suggests the unusual name came from a racehorse. As usual, Robinson’s have wasted no time in removing their signage. Just over the road from the Royal Mortar - another defunct pub with a distinctive name.


  1. this has now re-opened as the Fairway,brewing it's own beer.

  2. It is indeed the Fairway and seems to be doing pretty well, but I don't think it's brewing its own beer - you may be thinking of the Hope on Wellington Road North.
