See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
A former CAMRA national pub of the year, the Baum has never let the mantle slip and has been a regular winner of the branch pub of the year. It is situated just off St Marys Gate and a 10 minute easy walk from the tram / bus station. Inside the pub is laid out in a way that is quite intimate, with bare wood floors and a traditional feel to it. There is a conservatory area at the back, with a walled beer garden and smoking area. Beer wise there is an ever-changing menu of seven real ales, and one traditional cider, all immaculately kept and served by knowledgeable and friendly bar staff, with discount for CAMRA members. Fair selection of world bottled beer and draught continental lagers. Food is served daily and is excellent quality at a reasonable price. The pub is in the heritage area of Rochdale and next door to the Rochdale Pioneers museum, well worth a visit in its own respect.
