182. Printers Arms, Stockport Road

The final pub of our Cheadle crawl was something of a surprise as I have memories of a small, cosy, multi-roomed boozer, typically Robinson's.  What we find in the Printes Arms, however, is the inside ripped out, pine flooring and over obtrusive lighting installed and a newish looking pub that is out of character with the outside.  We are here though for the beer, and as per our previous findings with the other Robbies pubs, it's a decent enough pint, and a nice touch was the large bowl of free pork scratchings which were devoured (and quickly replenished) by us hungry and now slightly grizzled gents.  Final thoughts - the Printers is trying hard to be a modern pub but in doing so has lost its character and it's not the sort of place I'd visit again in a hurry.  A remark I would apply to my old home town, Cheadle, in general, if I'm honest.
