New Prince sought for Ashton pub

A PUB standing in the heart of Ashton-under-Lyne has closed its doors – but the hunt is on for a new landlord.

The Prince of Orange, which lies on the corner of Warrington Street, close to both the bus and train stations, has temporarily closed.

But in a sign it is set to stay despite regeneration plans in the vicinity, brewery Robinsons is marketing it on a five-year agreement.

It is also being sold as having Ashton’s best kept secret and according to them, turnover may reach more than £300,000-a-year.

The Prince of Orange, which Robinsons has owned since April 1921, is closed because a new tenant could not be found by the time Martin Connolly – who took it on in 2020 – left.

But given its new sales pitch, which also comes with a rent of £250 a week, it does not look like the building is ging anywhere any time soon.

Robinsons state: “The Prince of Orange is a beautiful town centre pub, refurbished around five years ago.

“Located in the centre of Ashton-Under-Lyne, close to the bus station and main shopping precinct, the pub is a local hotspot.

“The pub also has a great outside beer terrace (Ashton’s best kept secret), with around 10 benches, a perfect spot to soak in some summer rays.

“Robinsons are seeking an experienced business partner with a passion for cask ales, able to evolve the trading reputation of this great town centre pub.”
