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.

I have visited this pub for over 20 years and each owner has been great and maintained the superb selection of food and beer, as well as maintaining the atmosphere and decor.

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

The Baum is of course well renown for its beers having won numerous awards from CAMRA, however the food offering is just as good. Whatever I and my fellow eaters have chosen we have never been disappointed.

Had a lovely meal here Saturday 18th Jan, with 8 friends. Arrived 10 mins early and people were sitting at our table that we had reserved, some of them moved elsewhere but 2 people refused to move until the time stated on the reserved sign 8pm. We were a little squashed at the table but the meal compensated for this... More

Visited today on the strength of it being the current CAMRA pub of the year. Great environment, a bit quirky and old fashioned - but no problems there. Food was fine and no issues with the service or attitude. What let the pub down was the Real Ale selection. 7 beers - of which 3 came from Marstons companies and... More

I have visited twice in December. Once for a birthday celebration, once for a staff Christmas meal. The food was fairly good tasting on the staff meal, BUT I was so surprised at the appearance. Looked as if it had been thrown on the plate with no detail at all to how the meal looked. Obviously they are busy at... More
