Britain's first urban co-operatively owned pub hosts regular folk nights and events.
What was once a home, Paradise Cottage, became an inn as far back as 1856, but it wasn't until October 2009 that The Star Inn became the very first in the country to be taken over and run by its regular customers.
Sitting close to Salford's stunningly beautiful Cliff conservation area, the once run down pub was being left to go to ruin until the place was put up for auction. And, with not a huge number of welcoming pubs in the area, it was the customers who clubbed together and bought it.
Now with its own brewery and the host of regular folk nights and events, the Star Inn is putting the local community right at its heart.
Going out for a pint never felt so supportive!

'Hidden gem' - too right! Well worth tracking down. Regular First Chop ales and on-site brewery ("under new ownership" as they say) producing a fantastic first brew - 'The pursuit of hoppiness'. All for around £2.50 a pint!
