user reviews of Barristers, Bolton

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Basic, bare-boards boozer with a friendly welcome and efficient service. Shaded courtyard drinking area for warmer days. Real ale and real cider: on my visit the Wadworth Farmer''s Glory and Lees MPA were both in excellent condition and great value at £2.10 per pint! Well worth a visit. 9/10.

single bar & room. Good beer. Bizarre walk to the toilets through what appears to be a disused hotel!

Weird Polish barmaid behind the bar don't take her seat at the bar otherwise the bouncers from across the road will sling you out. Strange people attend this place don't go unless you have a giro book or look like a 6 fingered freak.

Apologies to the guy with the beard and the baseball cap with a pungent smell of body odour, if you would of put your name on the seats that us day goers were sitting in we would of kindly moved. Maybe next time don't mutter it and speak out its a free world now you know. A quick suggestion would be to make a reserved card and a nice candle and place it on the table. This is still a great pub by the way and has a good selection of beers with most beers priced at 2.20 which is great value for money.Barmaid was friendly and majority of pundits were so dont let being a day goers put you off.

I liked this pub. Friendly barmaid and a well-kept pint of a Moorhouses beer called Barristers Brief (presumably done specially for the pub) for 1.80. This would be my pick of the pubs I tried in Bolton.

Well kept beer in the Best pub in Bolton town centre in my opinion. Has a great range of beers and is a must visit if your going to the Bolton beer fest this weekend.

Bolton is a dismal place at the best of times and sadly the pub scene reflects this, with most boozers appealing to the lager/wkd brigade. Barristers does however offer momentary relief from the awfulness that is the drinking experience in this part of Grt Manchester.

A basic, no frills one room pub, the clientele are a mixture of locals, tikkers and the random oddball who wanders in. Whilst there, i enjoyed a pint of Blonde Witch and a dark beer from the Bank Top brewery. Both ales were keenly priced at just over 2 a pint and very drinkable.

Up to 8 real ales served on a regular basis. Blonde Witch from the Moorehouses brewery is a perminent fixture. Bank Top also have regular ales served here. Its a pitty that they stopped serving the ale in a traditional old pint pot with a handle on.

Martin the piano player does excellent renditions at weekends whilst they hold open mic nights during the week. The courtyard in between barristers and the swann offers a place for the smokers.
