Wellington, Greenfield

The Wellington Inn (The Welly) Greenfield was bought earlier this year as a free house by Wayne Rawstron and his partner Wendy. If you are familiar with the Saddleworth area you may know them from the Cross Keys Uppermill and before that the King William IV (King Bill) Greenfield.
I have called in a few times since they opened and observed with interest their refurbishment of this fairly tired old pub. Lots of the alterations are very much “work in progress” but Wayne is doing a good job introducing some real cask ales and is trying some of the best. He has a target of seven real ales a Cider and the usual Lagers. The kitchen is under construction with appliances being delivered daily. When the kitchen is complete Wayne will offer the terrific fare he offered at The Cross Keys at the same amazing prices. There has been a recent delivery of several pews, yes pews! From the recently closed Diggle church which should provide more than enough seating. Although I don’t think prayer meetings are on the agenda, however I am informed, on a tongue in cheek basis, that “the kitchen will be complete in 3 weeks” I am looking forward to the opening and cannot wait to sample food. (Real proper chips)
Only 7 out of 10 till kitchen is up and running
I will report so Watch this space
