About the Pub

This bar, the second Nook & Cranny outlet, has provided impetus to the burgeoning beer scene in this part of Bolton. It grew from the success of the owners' first bar in nearby Bromley Cross. The venue is a conversion from an old branch of RBS Bank and sits, perhaps handily, between a Morrisons supermarket and the local library. Once inside you will find a modern craft beer bar with a welcoming atmosphere provided by a diverse crowd of locals and beer enthusiasts. Staff are helpful and knowledgeable about the beers on offer. There are three handpumps dispensing cask beer from highly-regarded breweries, usually ones from the north of England and often at least one based in Bolton or surrounding towns. In keeping with the bar's craft status, there are also fourteen keg fonts serving a mix of styles from lagers to sours, some of which may be live. Food is available most weekends, provided by a range of local guest vendors.
