About the Pub

Large Hungry Horse outlet with Wacky Warehouse attached at the rear of the pub. Situated at the junction of the A6/A579 and half way between Junctions 4 and 5 of M61 which runs along the back of the pub. A very large open plan interior (with a newly constructed doorway added at the bar with part of the pub cordoned off for over 18's only) incorporating the original pub which was rebuilt in 1905 and then extended into the quaint stone cottages at the side of the pub which are used mainly for the restaurant. The Wacky Warehouse (play area for the little ones- a charge is made to use this facility!) opens 9.30am-7pm Mon-Thu; 9.30am-8pm Fri; 9am-8pm Sat and 9am-7pm Sun: Drinks may be taken in here from the bar in plastic glasses! Outdoor seating areas are at the front of the pub and at the rear next to the Wacky! The car park is accessed from the A6.
