The completely refurbished bar area offers comfortable and relaxing surroundings with probably the most spectacular views in Lancashire looking towards the south and west where Blackpool Tower can be seen as well as the Ribble Estuary. The original oak beams have been exposed and the original stone floor adds to the traditional atmosphere… and yes – we welcome dogs (on leads and under control) who will be well looked after with fresh water and our locally made treats thanks to Hatchwell’s Pet Products.
Our large wood burning stove offers a warm cosy atmosphere in winter whilst taking the chill off in the late summer evenings. Our friendly bar staff look forward to welcoming you to Lancashire’s first community freehouse.
Lagers, Ciders & Ales
We stock a wide range of draught lagers, ciders and real ales including Stella Artois, Becks Vier, Carling, Strongbow and Boddingtons.
We have an expanding range of real ales supplied by local micro breweries Three B’s, based just a couple of miles away at Tockholes and Blackedge Brewery based in Horwich. Three B’s Brewery was founded in 2001 by Robert Bell, whose love, dedication and over twenty years experience in the art of traditional beer making, is embodied in the beers produced. Only the finest ingredients are used, with no artificial additives, producing beers to satisfy the most sensitive and discerning palates. Blackedge Brewery was founded in 2011, born of Shaun and Wayne’s passion for good beer. What started out as a hobby is now a fully operational 10 barrel micro brewery located in Horwich on the edge of the West Pennine Moors. The name is a combination of our respective homes, Blackrod and Edgworth.
