Here is little potted history of our pub and the local area... if you have a spare minute or two and maybe a cup of tea (or is that a G&T), we think it's well worth read.
Sean takes the reins here at the Highwayman after earning his spurs at our busy sister pub in Manchester, Worsley Old Hall. Sean has been with Brunning and Price for just over 6 years, working at lots of different pubs and gaining invaluable experience. When we advertised the role, he jumped at the chance to move up North and join us, and we're really happy he did. He is a keen football fan and, if you stand still for too long, he'll enjoy telling you of all his triumphs from his playing days. Luckily for us, these ended a long ago. Known for his big personality, he’s sure to become well known in and around the local area and when he's not working hard behind the bar, he'll likely be found supping on pint of cask ale with the locals and chatting the evening away.
Aimee studied Costume at uni going on to work on shows such as The Lion King and The Olympics. After a few years she was lured away to pub life, swapping fixing costumes for pulling pints. A keen hiker in her spare time, she loves nothing more than being outdoors, climbing mountains but always finishing with a nice glass of wine in a good pub. It sounds like her change in career path was a perfect fit.
Trainee Assistant Manager
Elliott has been here since the doors opened as our Trainee Assistant Manager. He's an ever present behind the bar and whilst he loves travelling the world and also loves loves learning about anything cask beer related. He's a proper local and is a big rugby fan who will go all out to tell you how England are far superior to Wales (in rugby terms, of course).
Nadia came to help with the opening and has never left and aren't we glad that she never did. Nadia has quickly become part of the management team here at the Highwayman and is quickly making her way up the ladder. A keen rambler in her spare time means she's always finding new routes with Aimee our deputy for the monthly pub walks. Nadia's specialist subject on mastermind would be Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand, so any questions on the subject, ask away!
Sinead is an absolute trooper and is also a local girl who's 'born and bred' in the area. A horse and general animal fanatic, if you need any interesting facts on the like, she's your go to girl! An ever present you're almost guaranteed to see this 'lunchtime legend' if you pop in from a nice brisk walk.
Natalie is a super speedy cleaner who used to be a dancer. She can often be seen combining the two, with an effortless salsa whilst polishing tables. She has two lovely girls with the head chef Richard and in her spare time she loves nothing more than to do a few drawings to relax!
Use the calendar to book a table. If the time you're after is not available, give us a call and we will try our best to fit you in. We keep some tables for phone bookings.
We don't reserve any of our outside tables so if you enjoy a little alfresco dining these are first come first serve.
