About the Pub

The Elephant and Castle is a large town centre pub in the heart of Bolton's main nightlife area. Weekend evenings can be very busy when the pub acts a meeting point for revellers while DJs play tunes old and new. The host of large TV screens are also a magnet for football fans during big games. The pub supports an interesting selection of cask ales which make it worth a visit. There are 5 handpumps, with two Bank Top beers and quite often a St.Austell Beer as well as Moorhouses Blond or White Witch. There are food theme nights and special offers during the week. Outdoor seating at the front of the pub is popular. Popworld has a separate entrance for the upstairs nightclub and no real ale.
