Following a substantial investment from Robinsons Brewery and publican trio Jonny Booth, Jamie Langrish and Rupert Hill, The Bakers Vaults has risen again with an award winning team at the helm.
The interior of the Bakers Vaults has seen a dramatic change in colour scheme which uses a palette of greys and dark blues to create an airy and open feel. There are feature walls covered in a distinctive style featuring postage stamps, letter trays and inspirational quotations.
New lighting fixtures have been added which hang down around the bar area and across a new two-level decking area. A new kitchen has been installed which will accompany a modest food offer. The biggest change, however, has been the movement of the central bar.
The bar is now situated more towards the rear of the pub creating a larger space for additional seating and increased visibility of the bar’s brand new cask offering which features a whopping ten hand-pulls and a selection of rotating cask ale from Robinsons and Titanic breweries; the largest cask offering in any Robinson’s pub.
The pub was previously known as the George and Dragon and was built around 1775 on the remaining foundations of the old Stockport castle. The original building, demolished in the late 19th century, was renamed the Bakers Vaults and rebuilt in the so-called ‘gin palace’ style of the times.
