The Heywood is a big pub with a large function / entertainment room on one side and a separate lounge bar on the other. It is almost two businesses in one. The Heywood can offer a lot of different occasions all under one roof and sometimes these come together at the same time. We therefore need a licensee who can help plan and promote functions / live entertainment / events / carvery and bar food. They will need to manage both the wet and dry trade and together with both the bar and kitchen staff deliver a successful offer for the people of Heywood and the surrounding areas.
