Flaming Grill (Greene King)

About the Pub

The entrance vestibule to this Greene King (Flaming Grill) house opens up into a large single room, tastefully broken up into separate areas. The large bar facing the entrance is adorned with carved wood and the room is furnished in a contemporary style with plenty of wood and sofas. This pub has made a concerted effort in recent years to broaden its appeal away from being purely an under-25s pub and now has food being available most of the time. The outdoor patio area is popular and screened from the road by a trellis. There is a large car park accessed from Torkington Rd. The exterior of the pub facing the road has changed little over the years and the leaded windows have been retained. Most major football games are shown on the many TVs around the place.

Historic Interest

Originally named the Bulls Head, it became the Bullock Smithy on 25/2/2014. The Bullock Smithy name reflected the original name for Hazel Grove. Renamed once more as the Bulls Head in June 2022. The terminus of the Stockport trams was originally outside the pub but these were withdrawn around 1920. In 1949 it became a Wilsons Brewery house following merger with Walker & Homfray's Brewery, originally was a Showell's Brewery house.
