About the Pub


A genuine free house, which until until recently was run by local brewery Beer Brothers serving four beers from their own brewery and three guest ales. A recent change of landlord in March 2019 is likely to result in a name change and variation in real ales on offer but the pub will continue as a free house offering up to seven real ales (further details to follow).

It has a comfortable single room bar set back from Fylde Road at the side of the unrelated Ferret pub. There is a pool table and darts in the area behind the bar and three large sports screens. Live music ranging from jazz to blues plays five nights a week. Although surrounded by university buildings, it's not primarily a student bar.

Branch Pub of the Year 2015.
