The Grapes is a well-kept, traditional pub based on the pleasant suburbs of Rochdale. Stockport-based brewers, Robinsons Brewery, acquired this pub back in 1992 and since then, it has remained a welcoming local for the community of Bamford to enjoy.
Bamford is home to a variety of acknowledged pubs; however The Grapes has changed its direction and now offers a classic yet stylish ambience, along with an innovative range of products.
The Grapes’ pub structure has been completely altered, allowing for an improved feel to the flow of the pub. The pub now boasts a brand-new widespread bar, plus new fixtures and fittings and a complete redecoration from top to bottom.
Tony Massey, Business Development Manager for Robinsons Brewery, said: “The inspiration for this refurbishment was to revive a community pub, engage more of the local residents, and install some local pride. We wanted to create a real transformation here. We added natural timber flooring and feature stone tiles to create a modern yet contemporary feel, and the area now offers a more spacious environment for all to appreciate. We knew that this pub had potential, thus polished the diamond in the rough. We hope that the new look will engage more locals; it really is a stunning pub with lots to offer.”
Nicola Hutchinson, Manager at The Grapes, said: “The refurb has truly exceeded our expectations. We are delighted with the trade, and the locals of Bamford are all extremely pleased. Along with retaining our usual customers, we are now attracting a new customer base too. We are very proud and appreciate the immense help and support received from Robinsons.”
The Grapes now provides four cask ales, a wide range of lagers and craft ales, and offers a superb variety of wines both by the glass and bottle, all complemented by a great spirit selection including circa 10 gins. The pub boasts a premium range, alongside some old gems, so there’s something for everyone. The Grapes serves fresh homemade food served to your liking.
