The pub is situated on a corner plot and is surrounded by a good range of housing. Packmoor is located to the north of Stoke on Trent, approximately 5 miles from the city centre (Hanley). Surrounding towns include Kidsgrove to the west (approximately 2 miles), Tunstall to the south (approximately 2.5 miles) and Biddulph to the north east (approximately 3 miles). Discovery of James Brindley`s prototype lock was of major historical importance as it was the prototype for all canal lock gates. It is possible to see its location marked on the car park surface and the lock itself has been protected by concrete planks when the pub was built.
The private accommodation is located on the first floor. It is in good order and consists of an office, 3 double bedrooms, lounge, fitted kitchen with cooker, boiler room and a bathroom with shower cubicle. There is private parking and a garage outside.
The Brindley`s Lock is a large, open-plan pub located to the north of Stoke on Trent in the suburb of Packmoor, named after a prototype lock discovered during it's construction and which now lies buried beneath the car park. In good order throughout, it offers a wide range of cask ales and lagers, and is both a community local which is known for it`s friendly atmosphere and good food, entertainment nights and special themed evenings. Robinsons are ideally seeking a local licensee with catering skills who can integrate into the community to retain the popularity of this community pub.
