Sambolly at the Dog! Beginning Thursday 19th April 2012, come along on any Thursday evening 7pm-9pm, drums and all other percussion instruments are provided. Get ready to bring Samba to Bollington!!! John Hartshorn says "Hopefully I'm going to teach people to play with subtlety and style! There's more to samba and other Brazilian rhythms than banging a drum as loud as you can!"
The pub is set in this picturesque village surrounded by local history.
The D&P, as it is known to its friends, was built c.1800 and has been
kept in its original condition. In winter the comfort is maintained with a good fire in the grate and plenty of pub games most nights. TV screen for the football.
In the summer outside picnic tables provide a place in the sun to admire the stunning displays of flowers in boxes and baskets around the walls. The D&P has been a regular winner of the Bollington in Bloom Pubs category! Village and Cheshire league cricket is played on the Recreation Ground
at the rear of the pub.
As well as supporting the local football teams and being a member of the local pool and bar games leagues, the pub has a reputation for its live music. Friday evenings herald the Folk Night, hosted by well known local folk player and singer Arthur Wakefield, a venue not to be missed.
Open hours Monday - Saturday 11am - 11pm. Sunday 12 noon - 10.30pm.

Located on the main street, the Dog & Partridge is very prominently
located about midway between the railway viaduct (Middlewood Way) and the Macclesfield
Canal aqueduct, almost opposite the Civic Hall. In the summer just
look for a house covered in hanging flower baskets!
