The hidden Jamaican-style ‘rum garden’ in Greater Manchester

This 'hidden gem' summer bar with 'island vibes' in Trafford serves rum punch and Red Stripe on draft

The ‘Three Little Birds Rum Garden‘ is a pop-up summer bar found in the courtyard of The Stamford Pub in Greater Manchester.

Located in the leafy area of Bowdon in Trafford, The Stamford is a modern interpretation of pubs from a bygone era; a social space enjoyed by the local community and visitors alike, serving the wider Altrincham, Hale and Cheshire area.

“Is there anything better than drinks in the Bowdon sun?” said a spokesperson for the popular Bowden boozer.

“The worst kept secret of the last few weeks finally comes to life as we open our little hidden gem; Three Little Birds Rum Garden in the old courtyard next to the pub.

“Think island vibes with rum cocktails, punch & slushies alongside your favourites wines & draught beer with a summer twist.”

The Three Little Birds Rum Garden at The Stamford is open from 12noon daily moving forward for as long as the sun shines and ‘well behaved’ dogs are welcome.

No reservation is required – just turn up early for a good seat.

The pub is better known for roasts than it is for rum, and offers a decent a la carte menu alongside lunch specials and a crowd-pleasing mixed meat Sunday roast menu.

Or if you fancy something a bit more special, check out the adjoining restaurant, The Ugly Duckling, serving quirky small plates and killer cocktails.
