Brian, a lifetime regular at The Rodney, took over the pub when it came up for sale in 2012, because let’s face it, who wouldn’t want to own the very pub they’ve been drinking in for years. Brian wanted to make the pub back into what it was in its glory days, maybe into something better. He had a dream and it was one of Real Ale.
The pub ran, for just over a year, under the management of Brian’s close friend, Colne man Andy Gildea. Andy and Brian shared a love of ‘a decent pint’ and plans to make the Rodney into something great but sadly, after a fight with cancer, Andy passed away in spring 2014.
Wanting to do his friend proud, and knowing that time and real ale wait for no man, Brian and his new landlord Mark Pomfret got their heads down, and now, with a full refurb, a beer garden and the beer better than it’s been in years, they’re confident in saying The Admiral Lord Rodney is the place to be, whether you want a quiet evening pint, or to take in one of the many varied bands that play live at the Rodney most weekends.
Pop in the pub during opening hours, and you’ll find them around there somewhere, be it behind the bar or drinking at it! Don’t be shy: come and say hello!
