Houston, we have lift off!

ur NEWLY-refurbished gastropub raised nearly £900 for charity on launch night – by asking diners for a donation rather than paying the bill.

Deciding to take inspiration from TV’s ‘Hell’s Kitchen’ by requesting feedback on each individual course, including how much invitees would expect to pay for the evening’s three-course meal, at the end of the evening, diners were given an opportunity to choose to pay for their meal with all proceeds donated to charity.

The event raised £880 on the night, all in aid of the Edenfield memorial Garden.

The Coach is hoping to become a local hotspot, with the introduction of new cask ales, an extensive gin menu, and new food options.




New head chef Rod Francis was previously at 47 King Street West in Manchester and has created a new lunch and a la carte menu, using locally-sourced produce. He is looking to introduce a more relaxed offering during the day with premium dining in the evenings.


Fifty guests attended the launch, which included a drinks reception and sampling of the new menu. The event was held so the team could gather initial feedback on hospitality, service, atmosphere and food. We’re excited at the opportunity to re-establish the quintessential English pub with the ambience and menu to match some of the finest eateries in the North West.


The support within the local community has been overwhelming, and with a fantastic team and the local support, we endeavour to become a local hotspot. It is not just about refining the menu, we want to welcome all, both in the bar and in the restaurant. We aim to offer great local service, welcoming walkers, dogs and their well-behaved owners, and providing a relaxing environment to unwind during the day with a pint or indeed dine with family and friends.
