Samuel Smith

About the Pub

Closed 1/9/18 awaiting new tenant. Formerly the Wellington, this was acquired when Samuel Smith bought out Rochdale & Manor brewery. The pub was extended into the next door shop unit, then renamed in the early 60s. At the same time the interior was thoroughly remodelled. Spartanly fitted-out vault on the left with a pebbled chimney breast, the right-hand lounge meanwhile is more comfortably furnished and has a lakeland stone faced fireplace together with wood-panelled walls. A recent conversion to cask ale and a listing in CAMRA's National Inventory of historic pub interiors has boosted this pub's profile.
