About the Pub

This small local is situated on the first floor above the Irwell Works Brewery with a balcony for outside drinking. It serves a range eight beers from the brewery's own production. They pride themselves on the brewing and sale of traditional style beers with hops and barley being predominantly English. The two Gwynt Y Ddraig ciders on hand pump are no longer considered to be real ciders. Hot and cold snacks (Carrs Pasties, homemade sausage rolls, cheese boards) are now served from Friday to Sunday from 12.00 to 17.00. Live music events every Wednesday and Thursday nights. The bar is decorated with old photographs of the Ramsbottom area and it is only a short walk to the East Lancashire Railway, the local preserved steam railway.
