Not many comments on this very interesting name of a pub.
But its not a place I would have like to take a woman on a date who I was trying to impress.
Give it chance Mick it has only been on 24 hours. I think you will find there will be a lot of comments on this pub which was very popular in Ashton-in-Makerfield and still is today. Walter Corless the landlord for many years was a well respected citizen and publican of Ashton.
Not saying there anything wrong with it Tony I like it but like I was trying to say the name wouldnt impress to many womem if you where taking them out for the night and said I meet you in the Hingemakers.
I think I read something in the Wigan evening post about the old landlord Walter
just looks like a house with a banner stuck on it
Mick, What would a women think if you said you were taking her out to the Moon Under The Water!!!She would be looking for her space helmet to go out in no doubt. Or what about the Swan with two necks!!! I could go on all night
nothing wrong with how it used to be was a family run pub very welcoming ,had many a good night in there with gradley folk walt and evelyn were always there to welcome anyone .gradly folk from ashton
The Hinge reopened again 18 months ago. It is clean, friendly sells good drinks at the right price and has a wonderful south facing beer garden. Its usually buzzing. Try it
By the way,I forgot to say it now looks nowt like the photo. It has had complete refurb inside and out.
