Broadheath's The Navigation has re-opened after an extensive refurbishment.
No walls have been knocked down or built but it is all new furnishings and freshly painted walls for the pub which stands on the corner of Navigation Road & Manchester Road. The new Landlady, Julie, took over the last September and has spent the last couple of months trying to obtain the clientele that she wished for. Julie has 26 years experience in the trade.
This is a Stonegate pub and so it is committed to serving cask ales. The pub has five handpumps but is currently limiting themselves to keeping three in use until business picks up. It is the intention to have at least one real cider available in the summer. Everything is very reasonably priced.
They open at 10am in the morning to serve breakfast and then they serve food from noon until 7.30 offering meals and buffet choices. The Bowling Green is still there ready for the start of the bowling season later in April. There is outside drinking to the front and rear of the pub.
The pub has a large function room on the first floor which has not been used for years. This is still under going re-decoration but once finished look out for their cask ales and food matching sessions.
A Quiz is every Tuesday at 8.30. The local chess group meets here. Live bands on Fridays and Bank Holidays.
