CAMRA pub of the year in 2012 and a great stopping off point before a trip to Rochdale AFC's Spotland ground. The ale selection was excellent and changing and a porterhouse steak and chips immense and impressive. The sandwiches packed full of goodies also looked great and the atmosphere has something of a community buzz about it.

It's okay and it serves a decent pint but can't really see what all the fuss is about. Wouldn't put it down as my pub of the year.

The Baum has just won Greater Manchester Pub Of The Year AGAIN!

This puts it in the last 16 for the National POTY AGAIN!

Just shows that some people may not know what they're talking about :-))

I was disappointed in this pub. As a CAMRA Pub of the Year, the first thing I would have expected was a wide range of beers in top condition. The Baum had neither: the range was limited - nearly all pale hoppy citrus beers (mainly from Cornwall and the Isle of Wight on my visit) and I didn't think they were in more than average condition.
The interior of the pub is a modern pastiche of a Victorian local. OK if you like that sort of thing, but not authentic in any way.
On the plus side the food was good and cheap and the service quick (but it was a Monday lunchtime and even then they got one out of six food orders wrong).
Won't bother again

The Baum has won the CAMRA National Pub Of The Year 2012. Please don't try and visit on a Friday or Saturday. It's only a small pub and it's been rammed the last three weekends, you may not even be able to get through the door. If you've travelled some distance to get to us that would be a pain. If you're thinking of eating, please book a table well in advance or I'm afraid you won't get one otherwise.
