  • Recently undergone £270,000 transformational Capex

  • Busy town centre location

Following an impressive £270,000 transformational Capex we are delighted to introduce the Oddfellows to the Proper Pubs estate. The Oddfellows is located in the middle of a bustling town precinct in Eccles which is a part of Greater Manchester, three miles west of Salford and four miles from the city of Manchester with a population of around 36,000.  Eccles has a varied demographic and the Oddfellows features on a lively pub circuit. The recent investment has ensured the pub has great curb side appeal and welcomes a diverse clientele.

Pub Layout

The Oddfellows had been transformed with a warm and welcoming feeling. Whilst benefiting from new fixtures and fittings throughout, we have ensured that the pub retains its charm while seamlessly incorporating modern design elements and carefully balancing the space so it feels vibrant and inviting, the soft furnishing are balanced with both relaxed cosy seating and high poser tables.  The bar is prominent and services all areas and is carefully positioned for ease of service on those busy nights.  It has a varied product range featuring a great selection of category leading products, complemented by numerous regular weekly promotions, customers can expect exceptional value for their money.  There is also plenty of space to put on live entertainment with the addition of TV screens to watch the televised sports on offer.  There is a pool table and two darts boards and you should engage with the locals and offer both darts and pool teams.  Externally there is a fabulous enclosed beer garden which locals can enjoy a drink in those summer months and would be a great space to host community events and have some low key entertainment during the warmer evenings.

The pub still needs to be very much part of this community and be part of a circuit of pubs sharing trade especially at weekends. Having a diverse range of entertainment options is crucial for attracting and retaining customers of all ages. Weekend nights are prime time for socialising and enjoying entertainment, so offering a variety of activities ensures that there’s something appealing for everyone, whether it’s live music, karaoke, or DJ’s. Similarly, maintaining a strong rhythm during the midweek period is essential for keeping the momentum going and providing regular opportunities for locals to engage with the pub. Bingo and quiz nights are classic choices that often draw in the locals. Consistency and creativity in planning and delivering these events are key to keeping customers engaged and coming back for more. It’s all about creating an atmosphere where people feel welcome and entertained, no matter what day of the week it is. The pub has a loyal day time trade with locals gathering to watch the sports and enjoying a catch up. The pub has the full sky sports package so customers can enjoy watching matches on many of the well positioned TV screens. The fabulous rear garden makes a great space for people to enjoy a drink in those summer months and would be a great space to host community events.
