The Rain Bar has won awards for interior design and style - and for good reason. Situated between the locks on the Rochdale Canal, this three-story bar is truly unique. Once a Victorian warehouse, and then an umbrella factory, the Rain Bar has a rich history. Boasting three floors - all different in their purposes - as well as a large two-tier outside terrace, there is something for everybody.

The ground floor is the centrepiece of the building. With a grand and elegant interior, it features dark wood and leather seats, whilst the bar has been crafted from Lancaster slate. It is traditional in design, with a sophisticated and modern layout; the floor is separated into many subsections to allow for privacy, while at the same time maintaining the warm atmosphere that Rain Bar so effortlessly creates.

The menu is almost as immense as the building itself, with everything from delicate starters to mouthwatering beefburgers. To begin, why not try the soup of the day, made using seasonal ingredients and served with a wedge of malted grain bread and butter. Follow that with fish and chips with a twist - a succulent fillet of fish coated in JW Lee's very own beer batter, served with chunky chips and mushy peas. Make sure you check out John Willie's pies; these mouth-watering pies are large in size but small in cost. There is something for everybody, from the creamy vegetarian cheese and onion pie, to a brilliant steak and ale pie - not forgetting both hot and cold pies of the day. The meal deal allows you to order a starter and main course for only £7.95, and there's the option of adding a dessert for just £2.

If you fancy making the most of this fabulous establishment, the exclusive first floor is the ideal location to host a private function or meeting. With catering included, as well as access to the whole of the floor, you are sure to host an event your guests will never forget. If perhaps you are looking for something slightly different, check out Rain Bar's best-kept secret - the second-floor boardroom, which is perfect for functions and meetings with a difference and comes complete with optional buffet catering.

If the award-winning decor, friendly staff and amazing food are not enough for you, help yourself to Rain Bar's complementary WiFi - free with anything you purchase. And if you should find yourself caught in the rain, feel free to borrow one of Rain Bar's umbrellas, or buy your own for £7.95 - they make lovely gifts.
