About the Pub

This bar opened to coincide with the redevelopment of Bolton's award-winning indoor market in 2014. It quickly became a honeypot for ale fans across the town and beyond. The original owners sold the business to Steve and Anne Simms who have maintained the winning formula and extended the serving area. The three handpumps serve an ever-changing range from some of the finest breweries in the north-west. One pump is usually a dark beer. There is an extensive bottled beer collection for sale, much of it bottle-conditioned - look for the CAMRA approved RAIB label. Its location at the centre of the Market's "Lifestyle Hall" creates a unique atmosphere and makes real ale more accessible to those who rarely visit a pub. There are regulars who enjoy spending the afternoon with a pint or two in the bustling retail atmosphere, while others pop in for a swift refreshment break from shopping. It is also the ideal place to grab some great food to eat with your pint. The market has freshly-made takeaway food stalls from places such as Malaysia and Cameroon alongside the sandwich and pasty outlets. A large seating area is shared with these neighbouring stalls. The opening days and hours are restricted by the market, but the bar has recently extended to a 6.30pm close on those market days. There are occasional meet the brewer and food matching events. Definitely a place to visit as it's Bolton Branch Pub of the year 2016.
