The Ash Tree is Ashton's branch of the J D Wetherspoon pub chain. It stands on Wellington Road, opposite the Market Hall.
On the part of the site to the left was at one time a pub called the Horse and Jockey, which had opened in 1827 as the Hare and Hounds. A small cinema called The Queens Electric Cinema occupied another part of the site, as did the Alexandra Billiard Hall.
