Advantages: Open 8am-12am. Great Menu. Friendly Staff. Modern. Lively. Great Range of Beers. Child Friendly
Disadvantages: Should be in a more lively place as it is such a fantastic venue! - NO Disadvantages from me!
This pub opened in December 2011 and was absolutely packed to the rafters until well into 2012 and the reasons are clear: Cheap Beer, Great Atmosphere, Friendly Staff, Cheap Food, Modern Design, Clean, Vibrant Colours and a selection of almost anything you could want from a Free House.
JD Wetherspoon took over an old Shopping Arcade in Shaw, which was vandalised some years back; burnt out and abandoned. JDW took the building and transformed it in little over 6 months to the most popular destination in the Town.
The menu boasts luxurious items, such as Roast Dinners and Steaks to finger food, such as Nachos and Burgers. The menu is an absolute delight, offering every variation possible, from Italian, English, Mexican, Spanish and Indian cuidsine.
On Tuesday and Thursday there are club night, Steak on tuesday, which offers a steak with chips and salad + a selected drink for around £7 - and it's good steak too!
Thursday is Curry Night, where a similar option is available with a large selection of Currys, from Korma to Vindaloo - served on Rice with popadoms and a naan.
Sundays offers Sunday Club, where a Roast Dinner with selected drink is available for under £10.
Food is served at the Shay Wake from 8 in the morning up until 10pm, 7 days a week - including Bank Holidays!
There isn't another place in the small town that offers such great value 7 days a week and so consistently.
I have visited the place on several occasions and am yet to have a bad experience. The staff are extremely friendly, offering to bring Coffee over even when it's busy and that is service you cannot grumble about.
The decor is fantastic inside, offering vibrant colours and a great modern feel to it, whilst homaging the history of Shaw, with photos of Churchill and other notable members of the community, as well as a large powered device, made up entirely of metal recovered from the historic Cotton Mill industry, which the town is famous for.
The name comes from an event that too place in the town during the cotton mill era and JDW have really put thought into this aspect, rather than just opening up 'another' pub.
I am very pleased to welcome friends and family to this pub and smile when walking in, knowing they are as happy with it as I am
I am very pleased with this local gem in my local area and hope that many outsiders can come in and feel the delights of such a brilliant modern Pub.
This pub for me deserves a solid 10/10. The management are very helpful and the staff are fantastic. The pub itself has brought so much trade to Shaw and helped the other businesses around it, which is something that needed to happen!
Thank you JD Wetherspoon.
