The High Peak, Tameside and North East Cheshire Branch’s Pub of the Winter 2022 award was presented to Robinsons’ Windsor Castle in Marple Bridge. The
licensee, Jo Farrell, has been in charge for 14 years, and these days it is rare to find a licensee dedicated to a particular pub for that length of time. This is a true local and community pub, and is a reflection of the approach that Jo has to managing it, and of her welcoming outlook for all customers.
Jo ensures that the pub is a base for many activities such as the Thursday quiz, Friday or Saturday night entertainment, and sporting events. Many of these activities and others also benefit charities, including an outdoor fruit and vegetable stall on Fridays and Saturdays, which is due to recommence again soon. It is a fine example of the traditional local of the type getting regrettably rarer these days.
