About the Pub

A grand local landmark, near University of Bolton stadium, Rivington Park and West A grand local landmark, close to the beautiful countryside of Rivington and the West Pennine Moors. Lever Park across the road was a gift from Lord Leverhulme, the soap magnate and great benefactor to his home town. The pub is a regular winner of Horwich in Bloom and acts as a community focus. Darts and Dominoes teams play on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Chess on Mondays. Various artists provide entertainment on Saturday and Sunday evenings. Sports TV is also popular especially during a big football match, but it is not as intrusive as many pubs. A free to enter Smartphone Quiz is held every Wednesday from 7.30pm with bar vouchers for the winner! The bar sports fourteen handpumps, dispensing eight different beers- four Holt beers and four guests. The Crown is one of the few Joseph Holt's pubs serving not only a range of their own beers including the hard-to-find mild, but also beers from other breweries. These may include one from Blackedge, the award-winning brewery just down the road in Horwich, and one from Bank Top, Bolton’s longest established brewery. Other beers are from local micros or from Chorlton, part of the Holt's stable. Winner of Bolton CAMRA Spring Pub of the Season 2016. Winner of Special CAMRA 50th Anniversary award. Look out for CAMRA corner where the pub proudly displays Good Beer Guide window stickers dating back to 2001.
