About the Pub

Situated less than 2 miles from Bolton town centre near to Doffcocker Lodge, which is a well known nature reserve, this traditional pub with a wonderful snug complete with bell pushes attracts walkers and bird watchers. A new extension with disabled access and a pool room does not affect the original pub layout. Sandwiches are always available. Convenient for RSPB visitors to nearby Doffcocker Lodge. Often referred to as the Little Cocker in deference to the larger Doffcocker Inn across the road.
