Area Overview

The Red Bull is located on historic Middle Hillgate close to our brewery in Stockport town centre. Before Wellington Road (now the A6) was built in the early nineteenth century, the main London to Manchester Road ran through Stockport via Hillgate. Straddling the river Mersey, on the Cheshire-Lancashire border, the manufacturing town’s economy had boomed during the Industrial Revolution.

The Red Bull is located in Stockport, 100 yards from Stockport Magistrates and County Court. Around a 3-minute walk from Stockport Town Hall, the pub is also close to Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council. The property is 350 yards from Stockport Registery Office. The Stockport Local Heritage Library is 450 yards from the inn. The nearest airport is Manchester Airport, 5.6 miles from the property.


Private Accommodation

The domestic accommodation consists of 2/3 bedrooms*, large lounge, kitchen & bathroom. *Please note that the number of letting bedrooms is stated as 3 /4 - this will depend upon how many the new tenant requires for their private accommodation.

Pub location on map


The Red Bull is a superb old coaching house which has had a sympathetic refurbishment in recent years. Situated on Hillgate in Stockport Town Centre, close to our brewery, it could be defined as a “Country pub in the Town” with cosy fires, friendly staff and beautiful furnishings. Robinson Brewery is within a stone's throw from the Red Bull. The Frederic Robinson family used to take a short walk to the Red Bull for a well earned pint and catch up of the days events. Furthermore, the Red Bull is situated a short walk from the town centre and only 6 miles from the Manchester City Centre, you really would struggle to be in a better position than the Red Bull. As described on 'Trip Advisor', "it is truly a hidden gem, you will not be disappointed". The current tenants have built a reputation for good hearty pub food, and customers can also enjoy drinking and eating in the rear patio beer garden. There are also 3 /4 well appointed letting bedrooms with en-suite facilities for those visiting Stockport and looking to stay in comfortable surroundings. The Red Bull certainly aims to maintain its flagship operation within the Robinson's Estate!
