A pleasant historic building adjacent the Coop Museum that serves a wide range of real ale and good food. A well-rounded pub with a nice welcoming atmosphere and broad range of clientele.

An unlikely but pleasant surprise. The pub is so inviting and warm, and the food was lovely. Great choice of traditional beers and very welcoming staff.

We travelled up to watch Rochdale play Maidstone (I know), and needed food before the match. The Baum had a good choice of beers, which was a good start, but the steak I had was fab. I don't know whether this is a recognised pre-match pub (or wants to be) but for us, it was just right! Maidstone lost!

Great atmosphere, great beer, great food. All that a pub can be. Go in summer to enjoy the beer garden or winter evenings for the food and surroundings

Went for a few drinks and a meal on 29 October 2016. Lots of people in Halloween costume, including staff. We had booked a table which I believe is necessary Fridays and Saturdays. Good selection of wines. Two of us had the chicken peri peri burger from the specials which was great, plenty to eat and the French fries were... More
