Shaw, OL2 8AD
The Pineapple is in a prominent position on a corner plot in the town of Shaw. This impressive traditional building is well loved and has been at the heart of the community for decades and would be an ideal opportunity for someone to continue this business. Shaw lies on the River Beal situated at the foothills of the South Pennines and is conveniently nestled in-between Oldham and Rochdale in Greater Manchester, providing excellent network links around the North West. Located in a densely populated area, with plenty of chimney pots the Pineapple also has the benefit of having a number of local businesses and shops around it, so there is never a problem with footfall and passing trade.

The Pineapple is a great local community pub located in the centre of town. It has a great reputation for being a safe friendly local with lots going on. We’re looking for a licensee who will take the pub over and run it in a similar ‘tried and tested’ fashion. Entertainment and games feature highly here so a background in both would be beneficial.
