See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Sited in the former Wellington Stores corner shop, it is named after the person who owned the shop back in the late 1800s – indeed, in the basement there is a photograph of him. It’s very neatly fitted out with the conversion from shop to bar requiring major works, this included digging out the cellar to give an extra two feet of headroom. With large windows on all sides, the bar has a very spacious and open feel, although the ground floor only has seating for around 40 people – fixed bench down one side, drinking shelf and stools down the other with a smattering of two and four-person tables in between. Downstairs is a second room with seating for around 30 more and a second, small bar. In the main room, the bar is at the rear of the room. The cask offering features beers from local brewers and usually offers one from the Federation Brewery at the Con Club in Altrincham. The link is that the same person owns both establishments. There are three handpulls on the bar, but often without clips; the offering is shown on signs above the bar. There's a now now familiar "font wall" (featuring ten keg and craft-keg lines) on the back bar. NB as of early 2022, the pub is focusing more on the food offering, so diners may be given preference.
