Bunbury's Beers Ltd

About the Pub

This cosy micropub is named after a fictitious character in Oscar Wilde’s play The Importance of Being Earnest. It was converted from a shop by teachers Darryl and Sarah Leach in 2015, Darryl giving up his job to develop his passion for selling good beers and encouraging people to try new styles and breweries. The bar has three handpumps serving real ale and a range of keg offerings, occasionally ones which are keg conditioned. Beers vary in their origin but are usually from highly-regarded breweries, often local such as Rivington, Holywell and Northern Monkey. There is also a fantastic range of bottled and canned beers from the UK, Europe and the US, some of them rarely seen, which offer the drinker the opportunity to try many different styles of beer. Real cider is also available and a small range of spirits and wine. The bar has the intimate atmosphere that you would expect of a micropub, focusing on friendly and varied conversation, often about the beers. It attracts regulars from the local area as well as those who travel to sample the more exciting and unusual beers which are on offer. Bolton CAMRA Pub of the Year 2017. Opening times may vary slightly as Darryl may be out sourcing new beers.
