Joseph Holt

The Woodthorpe is situated on Bury Old Road in Prestwich, based next to the famous Heaton Park. It was originally built for Sir Edward Holt as his family home and was later converted to pub/hotel in the 1950's. The pub has been refurbished as of late 2018 to return the house to a state of modern comfort with a nod to it's own inherent splendour. The pub boasts two bars, an impressive function suite for both private functions and additional dining covers. The furnishings has been inspired and designed to be luxurious and welcoming, complementing the art deco style ceiling mouldings showcasing comfortable and stylish dining rooms, two terraces - one covered in a traditional veranda style and three beautiful boutique-style en-suite rooms.

The family-friendly pub has added some new features including a window display of the Joseph Holt brewery at the entrance hall, linking the site not just to the family but to the craft upon it is founded. Quirky touches and modern elements can be seen throughout the pub especially in the new Library bar area where the original fireplace and beautifully carved wood clock is showcased. In addition, the Drawing Room and Billiard Room has been recreated as dining areas to reflect a warm comfortable colour scheme and relaxed feel awaiting the patrons with some of the most beautiful original carved interior details to the house. 

There is a wide range of traditional award-winning Joseph Holt real ales and lagers, together with specially selected quality wines from around the world to complement the pub's delicious food menu. It also has a superb outdoor heated and covered terrace with beer garden for outdoor dining and socialising. Which connects nicely to the "Edward Holt" function room, named after the owner of the house, designed both as a separate space for events and an extension for dining. The room can be privately hired which has its own catering serving station along with a private bar and toilet facilities. A large HD screen has also been added for sporting and cultural events with BT and Sky Sports. 

The Woodthorpe is also a prime location for relaxing stop-over stays as it is close to Heaton Park for the Parklife Festivals and all rooms have modern furnishings and ensuite facilities. The rates for the rooms are from £55 weekday and from £75 weekend per night. If you'd like to make a booking, please contact the Woodthorpe directly on 0161 795 0032.
