The Dog & Partridge closed about 4 years ago after two shooting incidents in as many months. Ironically this old Bass house is now in use as a doctor's surgery, The Height General Practice.
This end of Salford is known as Irlams O'Th' Height, so named after the Irlam family who ran another pub nearby, the Pack Horse, and because as it stands at the head of the Irwell Valley.

Until its closure, this stretch of Bolton Road boasted a hattrick of pubs - the Wellington, Dog & Partridge and the Waggon & Horses. It is telling that the Pub Co-owned boozer was the one to go, while the two Joseph Holt estate pubs survive.
