About the Pub

Small multi-roomed pub with 2 handpumps. The range varies from local ales to breweries rarely seen in the area and may showcase both beers from the same brewery . There is a warming real fire in the winter while the expansive and sumptuous covered and heated beer garden provides comfort in all seasons. The walls of the beer garden are wonderfully decorated with murals as is the end wall of the pub and the wall adjacent to the main road and are a must see. The pub retains a beautiful hidden snug at the back which has recently had a door fitted making it ideal for holding private meetings. On the walls are histories of some of the families that used to live and work on Crook St. The houses and factories are now gone and a supermarket dominates the area. Note the hundreds of different pump clips on the ceiling beams showcasing the diverse beers that have been served up at the pub over the years. Fortunately the pub remains as a record of the industrial history of this part of town. The pub's name refers to the aromatic wetland plant meadowsweet which must have grown in this area long before the industrial and retail developments.

Historic Interest

Depicted on the end wall of the building and visible from Bolton station exit in winter is the Crook Street train crash from 16th March 1918. Also on the wall adjacent to the main road is a commeration mural to the Humphrey Spender Mass Observation 'Worktown' study from 1937/38 (see photos)
