About the Pub

Chorley's first micropub, this friendly and welcoming bar next door to the bus station opened at the beginning of August 2014 and was refurbished in January 2020 giving an upmarket feel to the alehouse. Up to five cask ales are served, mainly from micro breweries from across the country, although a LocAle or two should normally be expected.

To ensure a good range of ales each pump serves a distinct style of beer and a printed menu is produced showing what is coming up on each pump in the immediate future. Third of a pint beer paddles are available.

Two real ciders are also served, normally one traditional, the other being fruit-flavoured and with six craft beers on keg (often including one from the nearby Rivington Brewery and others from further afield including beers from Europe), two Budvar Czech lagers and a range of wine and spirits there's something to suit all tastes.

Awarded the local CAMRA Pub of the Year 2016 and Cider Pub of the Year 2017.
