About the Pub

This is a friendly multi-roomed traditional pub with occasional live music convenient for the town centre, being just a few minutes' walk from both the bus and train stations. It's a free house with three handpumps serving a house ale, Traders Tipple (Bowland Pheasant Plucker) and two other changing cask ales often featuring a blonde and a pale ale from regional breweries. There are plans to expand the range to four or five in due course.

The spacious interior provides options for a variety of tastes and gatherings including a large function room upstairs and games room to the rear. Key sports events are shown on a number of screens around the pub, including one in the beer garden for those summer months.

Historic Interest

Victorian brick two and three storey corner pub, possibly an old coaching inn, that retains much of its north western layout of a passage around the servery, three rooms off and a small public bar in the street corner surrounded by the servery. The very small L-shaped public bar retains a Victorian counter but the pot shelf is modern, also some old dado panelling and some new. The two sided Victorian counter in the passage is topped with another modern pot shelf. On the Clifford Street side is a small room separated from the passageway to the toilets by a floor to ceiling glazed partition. The room has a bare wood floor, old fixed seating a c1920s fireplace with a modern cast-iron interior and there is old dado panelling on the passage across from the room. Near an open staircase is another small room off the corner of the lobby bar. It has more old fixed seating but most of the dado panelling looks modern as does the small cast-iron fireplace. At the rear left is another room with a small piece of old curved fixed seating, old dado panelling but the brick fireplace looks modern. The room on the right on Hollinshead Street side has more old fixed seating but the room has been opened-up to the lobby and the brick fireplace is modern. Upstairs is a function room with a figure '6' on the door which has a 1960s bar counter and old cast-iron and wood surround fireplace. Note the carved architrave above doorways. A number of holes have been cut into walls and windows added in recent years 'for supervision'.
