I started with a pint of Stokers...........
The Puzzle is a two roomed pub. We were 14 in our party which half filled the "concert room"
The Puzzle advertises Thai food in the second half of the week. We were feeling peckish but the menu did not look very appetising. How misleading that was! Calamari, spicy fishcakes and corn fritters with hot dips whetted our appetites. I had a green curry for main which was fabulous. When the chef came out to see if everything was OK our group broke out into spontaneous applause.
The Puzzle also has it's own website http://www.puzzlehall.com/ where you can find details of forthcoming events. We visited the Puzzle Hall at the end of a week on the Rochdale Canal. I recommend that you take time to seek out and enjoy the delights of this local institution.
