Knutsford pub goes to great lengths to get locals to the bar

A local pub has gone to great lengths to highlight the importance of their presence in their local community, in celebration of National Pub Fortnight.

The Lord Eldon on Tatton Street, along with Altrincham-based Ye Olde No. 3, invited local businesses to operate from the pub to raise awareness amongst those living in the local area that may not frequent the local pub, at a time when 17 pubs a day are shutting their doors.

As it’s revealed that those in the North West believe the pub is one of the most important places in the community (17.4%), only beaten by the GP surgery (17.8%) and more important than a local shop (12.8%), a local hairdresser, nail technician, vicar and florist all signed up to support their nearby watering hole, moving their clients, customers and even congregation to the pub.

Not only that, but a number of pubs in the area will also be joining in the celebrations by giving away free drinks* until 5th August.
