NOTICE: Venues need your support more than ever during the ongoing coronavirus crisis. But please be aware that some special restrictions may apply, opening hours may be different to those displayed here, and some venues may be yet to re-open at all. Before visiting any venue, we strongly advise you to check its website or social media, or get in touch with them first to avoid disappointment.

You can check for local restrictions that may affect venues here

If you see any details here that need updating, please let us know by submitting feedback on the pub.


Reopened 17th July.

On 16th October the whole of Lancashire was assessed as COVID alert level; very high risk and tighter restrictions were put into place.
The effect on our pubs and bars is that only those serving substantial meals, like a main lunchtime or evening meal will remain open and the rest will close.

There are likely to be regular changes across the area as businesses come to terms with the current restrictions and as such we would strongly advise checking their websites and social media pages for current details before visiting.

About the Pub

A popular canal-side pub comprising a large single room at the top of the Johnsons Hillock locks. Recently refurbished, the pub boasts a smart interior in shades of muted brown and cream - giving it very much a wine bar/bistro feel.

Dogs are made particularly welcome with an external 'Hair of the Dog' bar - serving water through a hand pump!
