About Us

Live Music & Entertainment @ Bury’s Oldest Pub

The Two Tubs has always had a reputation for live entertainment going back decades. 

In fact one of the towns most famous daughters Victoria Wood even worked behind the bar.

We intend to develop and expand our live program by investing, redevelopIng, refurbing and rebranding the large back bar area into a 120 capacity live music , arts and restaurants space to be known going forward as ‘The Globe @ TwoTubs’.

This is in homage to the pubs original and fittingly historic name.

The regional and local music scene in Greater Manchester and in Bury itself is vibrant, exciting and eclectic, and has produced some incredibly important bands and artists.

All  of these performers have one thing in common, they started out in small live music venues like the Globe Bar @ the Two Tubs Pub.

We intend to present local, touring National and International artists at the Globe, to help develop and encourage a vibrant and exciting misic venue.

We will also be putting in DJ’s and club nights after the bands sets finish to take us into the early hours every Friday and Saturday night.

Regular live acts at the Globe Bar & Venue @ Two Tubs, reggae covers band the superb Ruff Trade.

The Globe Bar and Venue @ The Two Tubs

Our back bar and live events space with a new stage area for performers and bands with a new state of the art sound system and lighting as well as a new and redesigned tap bar.

We will be presenting live music and entertainment  every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening. 

Show casing upcoming local and touring acts early evening on Fridays, as well as some of the country’s best covers bands and performers early evenings on Saturdays.

Sundays will feature modern cabaret, burlesque evenings, touring comedy and other styles of live entertainment on rotation, some free and some ticketed events.

Our food is cooked to order and prepared from locally sourced produce where ever possible by our chef.

It may take a little longer than some pub kitchens and restaurants, but at least you know it has been made with care and attention and arrives fresh on your plate.

We buy all our stock from local independent retailers and suppliers, as well as from the fabulous Bury market stalls for meat and vegetables, so we support local producers and businesses as well as care for the environment.

Our menu is hearty, wholesome and classic pub food with a modern twist to allow us to experiment with our daily specials and our one off dining experience, music and entertainment nights.

In the future we will be featuring Steak& Wine nights. Celebrity guest Chef nights, Vegan nights, Themed menu nights, Fine dining evenings as well as our famous weekly Sunday Roasts!

We will be extending our dining hours too! Our new food opening hours will be from 12 lunchtime until 3pm and then 5pm until 9.30pm Sunday to Thursday and 12 lunchtime until 9pm Friday and Saturday evenings.

A made to order, locally sourced produce and delicious Sunday Roast Dinners

The ‘2 Tubs Take away’ service is up and running!

We launched at the start of May for our famous Sunday roast dinners, and intend to expand our offering and times of opening very soon! 

We will look to expand our menus and opening times depending on the success of Sunday’s and how busy we get.

Our brand new ‘2Tubs Takeaway’  App will be ready to download to order and pay direct through our app (exactly like Just Eat and Deliveroo) with menus on it too.

You will be able to call and pay direct by phone in advance,  but the app will be easier and faster to use and we would encourage you to use it once we start getting busier.

We will be making no more than 60 roast dinners on the first Sunday, so it will be first come, first served and must be booked and paid in advance by the Friday 4pm so we can get the meat ordered for delivery with our butcher on Bury market.

All meat and vegetables are being ordered from small, local Bury businesses, so not only will you be supporting and helping us, but you will be helping these businesses too in this tricky time.

We will be offering a free starter or dessert for NHS and frontline staff too - details to follow.

We will be hoping to sell our ales, beers and lagers for off sales soon too!

Meanwhile please stay safe, stay well and stay in
