Where to eat and drink

The closest other pub to the ground is the Golden Lion, which is just under a 10-minute walk from the turnstiles and welcomes both home and away fans.

The ground is a good way away from the centre of Macclesfield and isn’t particularly close to many other pubs or eateries, but the Keith Alexander Bar in the ground serves hot and cold drinks and snacks to home and away fans.

Celebrity watch

Stoke City striker Peter Crouch, New Order guitarist Phil Cunningham, and radio presenter Geoff Lloyd all hail from these parts.
