The new landlord of a pub says he is made up to behind the bar.

Adam Griffiths took over the Duke of Wellington in Chew Moor just seven weeks ago, jumping at the chance to take it over when it became available.

And he has big plans for the pub to put it at the heart of community - including serving up breakfast.

The 54-year-old who lives in Westhoughton said: “It is a pub I have always liked from living in the area.

“I think knowing the area gives you an advantage.”

The pub brought back food for the first time in a decade and breakfast is next on the menu.

The Bolton News:

Adam Griffiths, who also owns The White Bull in Chorley, says the food is all homemade - and popular items are proving to be the steak pies and burgers.

When he get the green light to open early on weekends to serve breakfast, the full English will be on the menu.

Adam said: “Breakfast something that is missing from the area.

“It is becoming very popular.

“We launched a food menu last Tuesday.

“That is something the pub has not had for ten years.

“It has been very well received and it is all homemade.

“We have already had 1,200 people like our Facebook page.

"The reviews have all been very positive."

He added: "My other pub was affected by lockdown but I wasn't with this one.

"It seems to be going well."

The pub has also introduced meal deals to entice more people in.

On Wednesday people can get two steaks and one bottle of wine for £30 and on Thursday that can get two pizzas, a bottle or wine or four beers of £25.
