All over Facebook this with loads of comments on the brewery not helping and the gravy train council not doing more for local pubs!
I've heard robinsons charge silly money to rent the pubs in Stockport before from various sources.

It's very sad news! We were actually in there Saturday, but when the band didn't turn up we decided to go elsewhere. Kind of wish we'd stayed in there now.

I find it a little weird though, they had bands booked into the new year and a new years party organised, there was no clues it was going to happen and baring the band not showing up it seemed business as usual on Saturday! Makes you wonder how long it was on the cards and what the final nail in the coffin was?

I would be surprised if Robbies doesn't get it open again some how whether they make it a managed house of find a new tenant, but either way there is a good chance it'll not be the same again!

Well clearly Coleman the sight of you and your missus leaving was to much to bare ?
But yeh it's odd to close up just before Xmas and with bands booked and New Year's Eve tickets sold ?

It's about 45 years since I lived in Stockport, but I remember The Bakers well. What a shame it has to close. Hope someone will take it on. Was thrilled to see it feature briefly in a Market Place shot used in the first series of Last Tango in Halifax (BBC 1)

Hi Coleman, Yvonne (landlady) was let down on Saturday by the band pulling out at the last minute, she's tried to keep it open, but alas it's down to money, to be fair my band Pure Sanity don't play in Stockport since Chapters decided to only have private functions, plus there are better venues to play around the area, we played at the rising sun last Friday, great pub, pete the boss runs a great place for live music.

Cheers, Slim
I've been contacted by the new owners of the Whit Hart about future gigs, just need to call in, plus I told Andy we'd play at the Tunns sometime.
I agree with your comment about the Bakers, Probably won't be going to Stockport anymore while the place is closed, although it may open again in the new year, don't forget the Arden have bands on outside May - Oct it's all undercover with outdoor heaters
