The campaign would not have gained the recent momentum and outcomes without the help from our local businesses in the area. One exception has been the Devils Punchbowl Hotel. The hotel was built around the same time and has survived the modern day climate unlike Undershaw 'that tatty old building up the road'.
The hotel has been the venue for several of our awareness days. They have provided us with the utmost of help on both occassions for our guests for which their generiosty is gratefully appreciated.
I can fully recommend the Sunday lunch carvery at the Punchbowl, it is reasonable, tasty, and plentiful. How can anyone complain about the food that is served in this hotel? The staff are a good lot, friendly, polite and ever helpful. With its reasonable accommodation tarriff, good food, friendly atmosphere and helpful staff, you cannot go wrong - book in for a few days, take a wander down to Undershaw and marvel the spectacular views especially as the spring is drawing near. Don't forget to mention that you support the campaign to save Undershaw. The staff would be only too happy to provide you with information about Undershaw, of their involvement, the Trust, the area and how you can help.
With the new management firmly in place at the Punchbowl entertainment has been added to the already friendly and comfortable atmosphere. Quiz nights, live entertainment, Wii nights and of course coming up is their valentines night, with its own special valentine menu and of course the Michael Jackson tribute night which is scheduled for the last Saturday of February. Not to be missed! There is even talk of a fund raiser for Undershaw - this would be exceptional if as many supporters as possible could drop by. By attending this you will be supporting both the Punchbowl and Undershaw.
Both these buildings are cloaked in so much history and both need the support from you the public to see them survive for many more years. You can support the Punchbowl by just visiting and sharing a drink in their bar or comfy reception area or even trying their tasty Sunday lunch.
Denise can be found busying herself in many duties as Assistant Manager at the Punchbowl Hotel and has involved herself with our campaign to save Undershaw, realising that saving Undershaw could create better business in the area for all small and large businesses alike. A move that of course the hotel fully supports.
