Unique little pub great choice of beers

The food here is always lovely and fresh and piping hot on arivial. Just make sure you book as it gets very busy and the pub is quite small. Great choice of drinks if you enjoy beer or cider. Both the pub and toilets are always clean and staff are always running around clearing plates. Great... read more

Having decided on a different restaurant originally, only to find out it was not open on Monday, we detoured to the Baum. And it was such a lovely surprise. Having never previously been before we discovered this place is great for the perfect lunch! Staff were very efficient and the food was quickly served. No complaints to be had. Will... More

I recently took my work colleagues here for our Xmas Do. Superb choice of beer and the food was excellent. Added to that a really great atmosphere which all in all resulted in a brilliant evening.

I was there the evening of the "singers" ... although they were a bit off key, they were having a great time until the staff stepped in. It is unfortunate the December 10 evening staff of the Baum have no Christmas spirit..... I was just sitting in a booth behind these guys and thoroughly enjoying their spirit..... the staff handled... More

Myself and a few friends have just been asked to leave this pub, due to us being supposedly being loud and annoying people dining upstairs. I can assure you we were not and nobody in the vicinity complained, it appears the bar staff just didn't like a group of 9 men in there on a Wednesday night.

There is nothing bad to say about The Baum. The beer, atmosphere, food and staff are all first class, its always a really pleasant environment and good for any age group. I would strongly advise that if you are near Rochdale then a trip to The Baum is well worth making.

Recently went on a Thursday evening after dining there a few times and enjoying the food. On this occasion I found the staff to be really un helpful and irritated at a small request to ask for chips not to come with my meal, and they did. The place was busy and very noisy with large groups of drunk people... More
