Improving facilities at The Huntsman

The Huntsman is situated above Saddleworth Moor on the edge of the Pennines. Whilst always welcoming of customers with disabilities the pub has recently undergone a programme of work to improve facilities and make them more accessible.

The pub is now getting a reputation for having good facilities but also for very friendly and helpful staff. This has brought in a considerable amount of business both from individual customers and carers and from different associations bringing in clients.

The pub has a cosy bar and restaurant serving home cooked pub food, fifteen 4-star rated bedrooms, a function room with capacity for 150 people and a garden with views out over the stunning local landscape.

The Huntsman has introduced wet room bathrooms with seats and grab rails to help customers with access needs. The reception has double entry doors with a ramp leading to the pub and restaurant and the function room can be accessed directly. There is also a large disabled toilet with full facilities.

All staff at the Huntsman are regularly briefed on how to assist disabled customers and make them feel as welcome as possible. If a customer is in a wheelchair, staff will ensure that a chair has already been removed from the table when they arrive for a booking, so no excess attention is drawn.

Staff at the Huntsman always ask customers if they need assistance. They accommodate them as they would any other customer, with a warm welcome and great service. The Huntsman also benefited a lot from advice from customers. This was the best way to find out what customers need to enjoy the pub.
