About the Pub

This Grade 2 listed Victorian pub was once in a row of cottages along the main road from Manchester to Altrincham. The cottages have long been demolished to make way for the Atlantic Road retail park, but the pub's listed status prevents it's demolition and leaves it standing on it's own on the edge of the retail complex's car park.

It's listed status is the result of it's special character retaining it's original multi-room layout, which also earns it a place on the CAMRA National Inventory of Historic Pub Interiors Part One.

Entering the pub brings you to a lobby, on the left is the 'Tap Room' and on the right the 'Bar Parlour', both with beautiful etched glass signs on their doors. Both these rooms have traditional fixed seating and bell-pushes. Continuing ahead takes you to the bar ahead and curving to your right, with more fixed seating around it.

To the rear the pub has been expanded from it's original layout, but retains the historic feel. Exiting the bar to the rear and right takes you to a room that was originally the domestic kitchen of the original pub. The Vault is home to a large screen for TV sports. Behind the Vault is an eating area with an outside patio (complete with red telephone box & Victorian lamp post) being available for drinkers & smokers (although smokers often use the benches to the front of the pub).

Two real ales are served, Holts Bitter & Holts Mild, although the pub itself is a freehouse.

The car park surrounding the pub is part of the retail complex and does not belong to the pub. If driving, beware that the car park will be locked when the retail park closes (between 8 & 9pm).

Wheelchair access is possible through the front door where there is no step. There is a step at the back door. There is no toilet for wheelchair users.
