About the Pub

The bar opened in 2016 at the end of the old row of shops now known as ‘Barlow Moor Parade’ adjacent to other bars and restaurants

This cosy and friendly French-themed cafe-bar, is packed with antiques, pictures, lamps and mirrors. Comfy chairs and soft furnishings are complemented by more conventional tables and seating. The bar is on the right hand side. Food is served all day; the menu changes from afternoon to evening. A pinball table sits at the back of the room and there is an outdoor seating area at the front of the bar where you can watch the comings and goings on busy Barlow Moor Road.
