About Us

Welcome to The Printers Arms.


Welcome to The Printers Arms, Denshaw, Oldham

The Printers Arms pub was originally built around 1717, then called the Coach & Horses Inn when the local trade was wool.It provided a stopping place on the Oldham to Ripponden turnpike. During the 19th century calico printing took over as the main trade and the name of the inn changed to keep up with the times.

Since taking over the Printers Arms in March 2019 the owner Alex Thwaite has totally refurbished the pub to a very high standard incorporating a lovely restaurant which has a wonderful ambience for a great night out with family and friends. Alex Thwaite with the rest of the front of house staff are on hand to make your dining experience a pleasurable one, we have had great reviews which always praise not only the wonderful food but the friendly and experienced service of the staff. At The Printers Arms, Denshaw you can enjoy a truly wonderful dining experience in lovely surroundings.

Our team of highly qualified chefs, led by Mark Britt have created a menu that incorporates both classic pub dishes together with exciting specials, there is something to suit all tastes and we pride ourselves on giving our customers that restaurant quality and service at pub prices. We use local fresh produce which is all cooked fresh to order, our local butcher in Uppermill, Saddleworth provides us with all our high quality meats.

We also have a selection of fine wines by the glass or bottle from around the world available to compliment your meal. The Printers is still a pub at heart so why not have a pint of cask ale. We also have many other fine beers and lagers for you to try.

On a lovely summers day it would be hard to get a better view in all Saddleworth than from our newly built beer garden; with the relaxing sound of the waterfall you can enjoy a cool glass of wine or beer whilst having a lovely lunch and looking out at the wonderful view what could be better!
