About the Pub

The Volunteer Hotel was constructed in 1897 for Chesters Brewery of Ardwick and opened in 1898, replacing an earlier public house, as well as the adjacent cottage. Once multi-roomed, it was opened up into one large room served by a single bar in the later part of the last century. Raised areas and fixed seating extending into the space break up the room nicely and make the interior is warm and welcoming, with friendly, helpful staff. Three darts teams are based here, which makes for some lively evenings, while quiz night takes place most Thursdays. A pool table is available in the left hand side of the pub. The oak-panelled former billiard room upstairs is available for meetings. Major refurbishment in 2012 has highlighted the exterior historic features and in February 2012 it was confirmed that English Heritage (now Historic England) bestowed a Grade II listing on the pub for it's architectural interest. Details of the listing can be seen by clicking here.
