Project Details

Project Name: North Westward Ho

Location: Manchester

Product: Bespoke Adelphi Oak

Architect: Up North

Installer: Clarke Gough

As Manchester's newest craft beer pub, North Westward Ho combines classic British charm with coastal-inspired interiors, creating a communal and inclusive pub-like atmosphere in the heart of the city. 

Pomona Island Brewery, one of Manchester's largest breweries, has collaborated with Up North Architects on their latest venue, North Westward Ho. Working together to preserve the traditional charm of a pub whilst designing an inviting space for inner-city gatherings.

Emphasising the essence of pub spaces, the aim was to create a unique venue at the former Chaophraya site in Pall Mall, Chapel Walks. Combining the appearance of quintessentially British establishments with modernised aspects, the result is a distinctive space that warmly welcomes and caters to all visitors.

Taking its name from the legendary old pub ship that was moored at Pomona Docks in the 1970’s, North Westward Ho has a few nautical nods, including vintage paintings and large lamps reminiscent of the guiding glare of lighthouses.

The interior showcases a large cascading bar, big feature windows, statement lighting, forest green tiles, and stained glass– providing a very sophisticated setting for a pint.

Atkinson & Kirby's Bespoke Adelphi Oak flooring, expertly installed by Clarke Gough, was fitted throughout to complement the pub's classic ambience. With its dark coffee tones and unique knots and splits, the flooring adds character and an aged feel to the space, enhancing the overall charm of the pub.
