The search continues for a new publican to run Burnley’s historic pub, the Tim Bobbin

The Tim Bobbin in Padiham Road, Burnley, has been closed for some time, despite extensive and expensive refurbishment in 2015.

The owners, Samuel Smith Brewery based in Tadcaster, North Yorkshire, have now issued an invitation asking all interested parties to come forward.

A brewery spokesperson said: “The pub has been closed for some time and it is difficult to recruit people into the hospitality industry at the moment.

“Ideally we are looking for a local Burnley couple to run the pub and create a good social atmosphere.”

The Tim Bobbin closed in early 2020, just before the pandemic hit and hospitality became one of its biggest casualties.

A popular venue, the pub underwent a significant and major refurbishment in 2015, which brought it back to its original four room layout. The pub has open fireplaces, a commercial kitchen, garden and ample parking.

Mystery over the closure of the famous Burnley pub

The Old Coachhouse is named after the author of Lancashire dialect poetry, John Collier, who used the pseudonym Tim Bobbin. The building was originally a small farmhouse whose address was “Burnley Ridge” but, like many other similar buildings, it became a pub, possibly in the 17th century.

Anyone interested in the role of manager of the Tim Bobbin should contact the brewery by email at [email protected] or call 01937 832225 or post to Samuel Smith Old Brewery High St, Tadcaster LS24 9SB.
