About the Pub

This CAMRA-award winning pub is situated opposite the Peel Centre. It looks ordinary from the outside, but once inside it quickly becomes apparent this is a far from ordinary pub. A warm welcome awaits both the regular and the stranger from the friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff. A single L-shaped bar serves a large lounge area. Among the many cask ales, it showcases the ranges of Rossendale, Outstanding and Pictish breweries (including a mild); supplemented by three guest beers at weekends. Real cider (a cider festival is arranged every August bank holiday) and a vast choice of foreign beers are also waiting to be sampled. A very pleasant sun-trap of a beer garden is to the side of the pub, its walls providing a degree of privacy from the main road. Local CAMRA Pub of the Year 2007 and also Cider Pub of the Year on numerous occasions (six out of the last seven years). Originally called The Railway, it went through various incarnations (Byrons, Cheekies), before reverting to its original name when rescued by the Porter Brewing Company. The railway in the name was the Cheshire Lines Committee, whose former tracks are buried beneath the nearby M60. Leaving after an always-enjoyable session you'll swear that you hear the sound of a passing train rather than the traffic noise!
