About the Pub

A large landmark pub at the junction of Halliwell Road and just off the ring road. It is named after the Ainsworth family, who made their wealth from bleaching and were owners of the nearby historic Smithills Hall during the 1800's. Ownership of the pub transferred in 2014 to Welcome Taverns.There was an extensive refurbishment to create a high quality finish with solid wood floors and leather seating. Thankfully the layout has been preserved. The main bar area has a split level and a small and cosy snug has been retained. The pub has up to six changing guest beers from a combination of local and national breweries varying from week to week. There is a dart board and pub games are available. The pub now seems to be regaining its status as a popular and welcoming community venue.
