give it Six Months

 Shocked That's a bit cynical isn't it? I think I would only make a comment like that after it had been open for a while. I sincerely wish anyone all the best luck in opening somewhere new and investing money in these difficult times. The fact that The Oddfellows is now no longer owned by Enterprise Inns should give them a fair chance and the rest of us hope.
                    OK Will apologise for that .

For Sale sign has gone and work is going on inside.

Rumours abound so I wont speculate but if the rumours are on the right track it is good news for this special little pub.

Fingers crossed!


Any ideas when it is looking to reopen?

A notice in the window says November.  The good news is that it seems to have been prised out of the grip of Enterprise Inns, so maybe there's a chance it might actually survive this time......

A new sign has appeared, describing the Oddies as an 'Ale House and Dining Room'. Oh dear... :-(

Not bad..... only 15mins after I posted it here the article has been re-written to exclude the links to Mark Hix, litigation threats were quick off the mark methinks  Wink

Still, Bryn is a top notch chef, should be interesting although undoubtedly not the straightforward pub grub that some were hoping for...

Why "Oh dear"? Another great place to eat is excellent news and Rhubarb has an excellent reputation.

The original article said that Bryn would be partenered by Mark Hix, goodness knows where they got that one from!

The new owner is a local guy who has a family connection to Mark Hix, so that is probably the basis of the story.

Cripes, the new Oddies may or may not turn out to be 'a great place to eat', but one thing is certain: if it's called an Ale House and Dining Room the beer will be over 3 quid a pint :-(

Busiest pub in the area at weekends is without doubt the Midland in Marple Bridge, the real ale in there this weekend ranged in price from £3.00 to £3.45. The things you have to do to have a change from Robbies !

Still, I'm sure that when Asda arrives, there will be some bargain beer in bottles to be had.

The Oddies has reopened - it was about a week ago.  Haven't tried the food yet.  Had a drink there and the beer was good, and an interesting selection if you want a change from Robbies, Moorendman.   Tongue

Can't comment on the all-important issue of the price of a pint - I'll have to go back and check that (what a shame!).   Cry
