About the Pub

Multi award winning continental style bar for both beer and cider in the centre of Darwen, the current East Lancs CAMRA Cider Pub of the Year 2019.

4 hand pumps from the Hopstar range, which usually includes a dark beer and occasional guest beer, alongside Endurance which is brewed exclusively for the bar. New brews are tried out here first but never last long due to popular demand so don’t hesitate to get down when one is on.
