The Wharf Inn is a traditional local free house situated below the Dog Lane aqueduct on Canal Road, Congleton. The Inn is a grade two listed building dating from the mid 19th century.
The pub has a friendly atmosphere and is frequented by walkers (dogs welcome), boaters and of course our regulars.
Our well stocked cellar providers a great range of real ale, continental lager and wine.
If you're a sports fan, the Wharf is where it's at. We show all televised sport on Sky, ESPN and BT Sport, from football, rugby, cricket, boxing, tennis and formula 1.
Multiple viewing areas. You can watch the game sitting at the bar, outside or in our seating area. We will always give you a front row seat!

Dog Lane aqueduct on Canal Street. A fine example of a Telford cast iron trough aqueduct supported on stone piers.
The Macclesfield Canal was opened in 1831. It runs from Marple junction with the Peak Forrest canal to Hall Green, on the Trent & Mersey canal.
Goods were shipped and received at Congleton Wharf, an important administrative centre for the canal.
From the mid-19th century, railways began to replace canals. The canal network declined, and many canals were bought by railway companies.
