The Healey is a neat, well appointed, three roomed Robinson's house in a rather nice part of Rochdale. It should be a roaring success and indeed with the same landlord for years, it was. Now he has retired through illness, which saw the pub going through something of a decline.
Today it gets a new boss. Those who drink in the excellent Baum will know Simon the owner. He is taking over the lease of the Healey. Watch out for big improvements. OK it is still going to be Robbies beer, but it will be served well. He intends to do two permanent beers and one guest from the Robinson's list.
Good news for Rochdale drinkers I'd say
