Burton Road’s Mary and Archie Licensed Bar SOLD

6 September 2018

Harvey Silver Hodgkinson are pleased to announce the sale of a licensed bar named Mary & Archie. The business was situated at 200 Burton Road West Didsbury M20 2LW. This completes our 6th sale on Burton Road in the last 12 months.

Our Client

Ms Beverley West had owned the business since 2011 and had only decided to put the business on the market to allow her to focus her time on her other site in Chorlton. The inspiration behind the name came from Beverley’s grandparents named Mary and Archie. The business was available on the market for a very short space of time before an offer was accepted by our client. We would like to wish Beverley all the best with all future endeavours.


Mr Oliver Calveley had been registered with Harvey Silver Hodgkinson for a short time before registering his interest in Mary and Archie. Mr Calveley’s other businesses include The Drawing Room on Burton Road and The Cellar on Shaw’s Road in Altrincham. Following a minor refurbishment the business will now trade under the name ‘The Shack’. The new Burton Road bar will serve tacos and cocktails. We would like to wish Oliver all the best with his new business.


Our client Ms Beverley West instructed Keyvan Zamanpour of Pennine Kennedy to deal with her legal requirements.
