Railway Inn - Broadheath
Trafford & Hulme branch have selected the Railway Inn on Manchester Road, Broadheath to receive their summer Pub Of The Season award 2007.
Originally converted into a pub from two cottages when a station was installed on the then existing train line, hence the strange shape of the building. The station has now long gone and the train line went in the late 1990’s when a campaign by locals and CAMRA saved the pub from demolition leaving it standing on the edge of a modern retail park.
This pub seems to belong to another age, complete with real fires and real ale, Holts Bitter and Mild. The landlady, Pam, has been running the establishment for 18 months now and has made great strides in returning this fine old pub to its original glory. It’s a little gem, a real working mans pub with an open fire and home made grub at lunchtimes and bed & breakfast facilities should you feel the need to stay over. If you want somewhere that concentrates more on keeping and serving good ale than somewhere that caters for teenagers then this is the place. The presentation will take place on Wednesday 18th July at 8:00pm and Pam is extending her hospitality to provide a small buffet for those attending the presentation.
