    We'd have to charge £4+ per pint, which we don't. If we did the pub would be empty.

    This is Rochdale not central Manchester, Leeds or London.
    In that case - now might be a good time to sell. Craft beer may be the answer.

    Maybe a few of us PuG folk should try this on the forthcoming crawl around Stockport.

    Obviously several pints of Old Tom will have absolutely no effect whatsoever!

    Apparently the Black Swan is the best restaurant in the world. No reviews as yet unfortunately to see if anyone here agrees.

    This was featured on BBC News this afternoon. It sounds like a restaurant rather than a pub and they have been snowed under after the Trip Advisor award. At the moment I doubt that they would take kindly to anyone going there just for a drink.

    3 garden tables outside imply no one really eats alfresco at this time of the year so fine for beer only. Poncy website though which I suspect will only get more pretentious in the near future once they add their new accolade.
