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

You have to visit the pub when in Rochdale! The food is excellent, a good choice on the menu and wide range of drinks.

Called in for lunch when out in town. What could be better than a hot sandwich and a pint? Staff are very friendly and the menu is extensive. Lot of different real ales on sale and the bar staff are very knowledgeable. Well worth a visit, but book a table at busy times if you want to eat.

A visit with my wife this evening to The Baum. She has previously been on a couple of occasions with colleagues and I had to admit that having lived in and around Rochdale all my life, I'd never been inside the door. It's next to the Co-operative Museum in the Toad Lane conservation area - so you could kill two... 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
