*** Update *** - Pubs can now sell alcohol provided its pre-ordered.

The new lockdown rules to be implemented from 5th November state that:-

"Hospitality venues like restaurants, bars and pubs must close, but can still provide takeaway and delivery services. However, takeaway of alcohol will not be allowed."

In previous lock downs offering alcohol for takeaway was a lifeline for many pubs, and particularly breweries. It is a baffling and damaging decision to remove this option, particularly when other businesses such as supermarkets can continue to sell takeaway alcohol. CAMRA has written to the goverment asking for this restriction to be removed. You can read the full text of this letter here:-

Concerned pub goers and beer drinkers in England can email their MP here:

and ask for the removal of the takeaway restrictions, and for a proper support package for pubs and brewers to be implemented.

Trafford and Hulme Branch are really pleased to be able to confirm that The Greater Manchester Club Of The Year 2019 is the our own Club Of The Year - Flixton Conservative Club.

Although this is the fifth consecutive year that the club has won the Greater Manchester title, it is the first under new Stewards Pat and Andrea Doherty who took over in March and have maintained the high standards set by their predecessors Nigel and Sharon Porter.

Nigel and Sharon left the club in November 2018 after six years at the helm but left behind a team passionate about serving high quality cask ale. Cellar team Tom, Chas and Hayley kept the beer flowing while the club recruited new stewards.

Pat and Andrea have reinstated the club’s successful “Brewery Nights” (monthly tap takeover and meet the brewer nights which pack out the club’s function room) as well as introducing a range of new events including a fortnightly Open Mic night, curry nights and expanding the live music offering.
