About the Pub

This bar opened to coincide with the redevelopment of Bolton's award-winning indoor market in 2014. It quickly became a magnet for real ale fans across the town. The three handpumps serve an ever-changing range from some of the finest breweries in the north-west and beyond. One pump is usually a dark beer. There is a number of bottled and canned beers for sale, some of it bottle-conditioned - look for the CAMRA approved RAIB label. Now extended into the adjacent unit for a dedicated Gin and Wine section. 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. There are occasional meet the brewer and food matching events. Beers available and coming soon are shown on Twitter. Definitely a place to visit as it was Bolton Branch Pub of the year 2016.
