How To Find Us

The Shamrock Bar 

The Shamrock Bar. 96 Mill Street • Macclesfield • SK11 6NR

A historic pub circa the 1500s originally called “the pig and whistle” this venue has lots of great history even a priest hole and run on-site.

The old Pig and Whistle is a picture taken at the turn of the 20th century. AT the bottom end of Mill Street is an ancient building that in recent years has become the Shamrock. Was formerly been an electrical store, but for most of its life, it was a public house. The Pig and Whistle, later the Old Pig and Whistle.

The pub used to have a sign above the black and white frontage that showed a pig playing the penny whistle. The historian John Earles however proposed that the pub’s name came from Peg and Wassail. The ‘peg’ denotes the cork in a barrel of ale and the ‘wassail’ means a festive occasion or drinking bout. ‘Wassail’, he said, was probably derived from an old English toast, ‘wes hal’ meaning ‘Be in good health’, like ‘Cheers’ today.

However, Mr Earles was only partially correct.

The ‘pig’ part is not a corruption of peg, but of the word ‘pagan’, so our ancient drinking house was once called the Pagan Wassail, denoting an orgy of drink and debauchery.

Marshall Carr’s electrical contractors said that when they were refurbishing the upstairs rooms, a secret room was discovered inside. The copper still and all the paraphernalia to distil the strongest booze imaginable however this is completely illegally of course.
