About the Pub

One of Altrincham's oldest pubs dating back to the Victorian era. The pub's name refers to the time when it was the brewery tap for long gone Richardson's Brewery.

Entering the pub from Stamford Street brings you into a large open plan bar that serves all areas of the pub. To the right of entrance is the seating area of the main bar with traditional bench seating against the walls. To the left is a games room with dartboard. Straight ahead is a staircase leading to the former meeting room which now acts as a pool room. To the rear of the pub is a lounge area complete with real fire. The walls are adorned with many photographs of old Altrincham.

As a Sam Smiths house there is only one real ale but the fridges boast an impressive range of bottles, including porters, stouts & organic ciders.
