Robbers who raided two premises within an hour are being hunted by police.
Two men with Samurai swords forced the manager to empty a safe in the Henry Boddington's pub in Bolton Road, Swinton, on 9 April.
Then about 50 minutes later two men burst into Worsley Old Hall, in Walkden Road, threatening the manager before stealing cash from the safe.
It is believed a third man was waiting outside.
Police are appealing for anyone with information to contact them.
