About the Pub

Describing itself as a small bar, with a big Blues attitude! Owned and operated by Joe Patten; he spent many months restoring this former Victorian two storey building back to what it may have looked like; this included installing a period-effect staircase, coving, flooring, and chandeliers. The result echoes the building's past: it was a general store, and hat shop. Sewing machine tables have been re-purposed, plus a bar designed to look like a Victorian pharmacy counter. Both floors are in use, the upper one having a lot more space. To the side of the bar are eight keg lines serving craft keg beers such as Delirium Tremens, the bar's own "Cracked Actor Lager", made by Delirium in Belgium, a range of craft ales from Tiny Rebel, plus a small selection of canned beers. The bar also has its own Cracked Hatter Gin, made by Stockport's Hatters Gin, as well as a selection of spirits from Manchester's Zymurgorium distillery, along with wine and cider. It hosts regular live music nights which may extend to nightly. History: opened 28/8/19 in the former Barkers hat shop premises; in the 1800s it was a general store, this influenced the overall look and theme, hence all the chemists drawers, and paraphenalia. The bar's name hints of owner, Joe's prior career as an actor.
