  1. Chorlton Local Says:

    The decor is disgusting, beer garden (think thats what it is) is shocking.

    If you want a pub with the above and an almost nice feeling of intimidation from the regulars (not the locals) by all means visit this pub.

    I honestly don’t know how they stay open, they need doormen and a very strict door policy like the Jockey (guess which pub is doing well)

  2. Les Jones Says:

    To be fair the decor is not in great shape. I have always found the beer to be tasty, well cared for with a good selection of hand pumped cask ales.

    The staff are friendly and I have never felt intimidated by anyone. Around 20 of us gather on the first Wednesday of each month in the Snug, sing mostly but not exclusively traditional folk songs. Some of us play fiddles, whistles, squeeze boxes and bagpipes and everybody sings choruses.

    Come along, I guarantee good beer, great music and excellent company in the best pub of its kind in Chorlton.

    I guess I have been going to the Beech on Beech Road, Chorlton at least once a week for around two years and on on off for around 30 years. I have always found the company, the staff and the range and quality of beers to be excellent.

    My favourite is Taylors Landlord, although their Best Bitter runs very close. I have also enjoyed a number of beers from the Dunham Massey Brewery.

    The Beech is the last of it’s kind certainly in Chorlton. Small friendly, comfortable with the accent on providing good beer.

    Just before Christmas the Beech was completely redecorated with new floors and upholstery. It has been carried out with sensitivity and it looks great.

    I would ask anybody who ever visited the Beech to go again and enjoy excellent beer in an exceptional pub.

    I have to say the pub is distgusting, it is not a patch on what is was in the eighties when it was still managed and owned by Whitbread.

    The pub is dirty, the toilets, well don’t even go there. The beergarden, I have seen better gardens in salford and the inside is just awful.

    It needs a good owner who is interested in developing the place and a strict door policy!

  5. Ged Says:

    With a change in management the decor has been improved and the beer is better kept than over the last few months. It’s true that the decor is not pristine but to say its disgusting is really over the top. One thing that this pub has in spades (which is more than can be said for some of the other pubs in the area) is character. It’s a real old fashioned drinkers pub.

    • Les Says:

      To be fair The Beech did take a nose dive. It is under new management. The beer is consistently good with usually a choice of 2 or 3 cask beers. The front and back bar have been re-painted and it generally looks a lot cleaner.

      A blackboard shows a range of special events and the Beer garden has been emptied and cleaned.

      We still gather to sing folk songs on first and third Wednesdays and play folk tunes on the last Tuesday of each month.

      If you want a small friendly, seriously old fashioned pub – this is one of the few left – give it a go.

      Cheers

    The Beech has been under new management for a few years now and has had a massive turnaround. I love this pub, it’s got real ales, staff are friendly, beer garden has been redone and children are welcome. It’s been redecorated and is fairly priced.

    • This is a real pub one of the few with real people real music & real ale. I dont go to visit the toilets or look at the decor, anyone who does should stay at home…
