This is a very traditional pub serving fresh cooked food. The pub is very cosy and welcoming, there is a large courtyard to the rear which is a great place to eat on a sunny day. Difficult to believe its in the town centre, feels quite peaceful. The food is all freshly prepared from a varied menu. Have eaten here... More

Visited after hearing the pub won CAMRA of the year pub 2013. Unfortunately I was driving so didn't sample some of the most amazing beers on offer but tried the food instead. Found the pub really quite charming and the staff equally charming too. The food was excellent, really top quality. When we visit again I will ensure we use... More

We went to the Baum as a last minute spur of the moment meal for my husbands birthday. We ordered 2 x chicken filet burgers from the specials board. The meal arrived in good time, presentation average and portion size ok. The meal arrived stone cold so sent it back. We asked for the salsa and salad from the burger... More

Over priced beer and a gravel-pit of a beer garden,broken seats in the garden area,living on their laurels ,wake up and serve your customers value for money not just profit making.

From the outside, this has got to be amongst the nicest buildings in central Rochdale. And the current owners have made the best use of it. Inside it's homely, quirky and exactly how I had imaged - the type of place men sit reading one of the newspapers provided and drinking one of the many beers on offer. However, I... More

The Baum deservedly won the Greater Manchester Regional CAMRA pub of the year award for 2012. I for one was delighted, as it’s a great place. There are eight hand pumps and five keg taps offering an ever changing range of mainly local craft beers as well as around 35 bottles. Samplers are available and the food is to be... More
