A Smith & Jones pub, part of the Barracuda chain, the Chadwick is named after Roy Chadwick, the famous aircraft designer, who was educated in Urmston. The pub is a relatively new addition to the Urmston scene; a conversion from shops, it was opened in 2005.The entrance from Flixton Road opens into a long single room with the bar running down the right hand wall. The room is broken up by the staircase, which leads up to the toilets. It has a relatively low ceiling and subdued lighting. At the rear is a small smokers’ shelter but with no view to speak of; it will soon face the back wall of new shop units within the Eden Square shopping centre. Drinks cannot be taken outside (neither at front nor back).Background music and TV screens contribute to the party atmosphere and the pub fits neatly into Urmston’s modest “drinking circuit”.Although the decor does not fit the stereotype of a cask ale outlet, the bar boasts four handpumps with wildly unpredictable guest beers plus the usual suspects from Thwaites and Greene King. Beer prices are lower than in other Smith & Jones pubs, in response to competition from Wetherspoon’s and local free houses.Food is available until 9pm. The cooked breakfasts are particularly popular.
