In October 2002, the popular Robinsons’ pub – The Fletchers Arms – was taken over by Doug Almond along with his son James and daughter Vicki, who set about the transformation of the pub. Since which, it has been a landmark for excellent food, a well pulled pint and friendly service in Denton!

Back to 2022, the Almond family are now celebrating 20 successful years with the pub. Keen to ensure that their loyal guests (many of which have been frequenting the pub since those early days) get to celebrate with them, the Almond family have a month of offers and celebrations planned.

October is jam-packed with offers aimed at drinkers and diners, so there is something available to suit everyone. For the first weekend in October, members of their Regulars’ Club will receive a voucher in their inbox which will give them 20% off their famous carvery early week. Not only that, but every single person who visits the pub and spends £20 or more on food will be invited back for 20% off their next meal! For drinkers, every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, numerous products such as gins, cocktails and draught have been discounted by, you guessed it, 20%! Full terms and conditions can be found on their website.

William Robinson, Managing Director (Pub Division) at Robinsons Brewery said:A huge congratulations to the Almond family on celebrating 20 years at the Fletchers Arms. All at Robinsons greatly appreciate the family’s dedication to the pub industry as a whole, and to the Fletchers. The pub has been transformed since the Almond family took over and is a wonderful family spot with great food in Tameside. We’re thankful for having such great licensees who really see potential in our pubs and help to transform them, adding to our local communities.”

On Friday 28th the pub will be throwing a birthday bash, with live music, decorations and a complimentary buffet, where they look forward to thanking all of their guests for their loyalty and custom over the years.

Vicki Almond said: “We’re so excited for this month of celebrations at the Fletchers Arms. It was our first pub under the Almond Family Pubs umbrella, so it holds a special place in our hearts. To have made it to 20 years, especially with everything that’s going on in the hospitality industry at the minute, is a great achievement and we’re very proud of the pub, and the wonderful team who work here. Here’s to another 20!”
