About the Pub

Originally, the Flying Dutchman, the pub was extended to the rear in late 2015 with a lounge-cum-conservatory area being created with a large amount of glazing to bring in extra light. The toilets were relocated upstairs, but there is a disabled toilet downstairs. The remainder of the pub to the front is of a mildly opened-out configuration - smart, but small lounge to the right of the entrance, then to the front of the bar is a small, neat area, while further right is a comfortably furnished room with a feature real fire in place. This area is used for live acts and karaoke too. When the Fairway was created the new owners did a thorough re-fit - new toilets, a new kitchen, new fitted and upholstered bench seating, new d├ęcor and lighting, plus an upgraded outside smoking / drinking area. All of the glazing was changed too, and the cellar facilities upgraded. Eight cask beers are available including a permanent mild or stout, where mostly local micros feature prominently in a rotational scheme. The other handpulls dispense two real ciders. Obviously, trade has determined how the beer range fared, as the range and variety has grown over time. Meal times are 12-2 Wed-Fri, 12-6 Sat-Sun (eves 5-8 Thu is curry night). There is live entertainment every Saturday night. History: originally a Robinson's house, the Flying Dutchman, this re-opened on 13/10/12 as the Fairway. Owners Stuart and Emma Driver have had pubs in the past, these have included the New Inn at Castleton (Rochdale), Copperfields Bar / Southlands Hotel in Adswood, and most recently the Dog & Partridge at Great Moor. Seeing as how being a tenant of a pub company or brewer was so expensive, he decided to purchase the Flying Dutchman to enable him to have full control over costs, beer choice and such. You may ask why the name change to Fairway? Well, although Stuart does enjoy a game of golf (Driver, Fairway, geddit?), well that is not the reason for the name. His father suggested Fair Play, but that was deemed unsuitable, so Fairway was chosen instead.
