Like Joe said, i've had some great nights in there as well, they've made a good job of the conversion but i'm not to keen on the 'would be' front garden. Julie i would have to guess at 2/3 years since it shut, it's been a while anyway.

Sorry, only just realised the old pub is apartments now and they need parking spaces and NOT a front garden.

Thankyou Roy for letting me know when it closed as i was curious as i grew up on bolton road.

It looks nice, but think the apartments must be small?

I have just discovered there are four luxury apartments, might be tight for parking.
