I went in here a few years ago and it seemed an odd place, a crowd of old men round the bar and the rest of the pub empty. Very strange atmosphere. What a change on my recent April early evening visit! This is now a thriving pub with dining, and offers 6 pumps up to real ale. 3 were from Thwaites, also available Storm In A Pint Pot by Salamander, Sir Philip by Wincle Beer Company, and Pride of Pendle by Moorehouse's. I think I went for the Salamander offering and it was very pleasant. I would happily return to this pub at some point.

I only get in this pub at weekends when it seems friendly enough to me and my chums. We visited today and found the staff to be reasonably welcoming and helpful. The first beer I ordered (Shepherd Neame Whitstable Bay) was not at all to my liking: couldn't put my finger on why but it had a very sour taste to it. The barmaid was quite happy to change it though. Other beers (Beartown Kodiak Gold and Storm Bosley Cloud) were much more palatable though not in the very best condition. We enjoyed the carvery, which had a decent range of vegetables as well as roast meats.
I think the pub has been refurbished recently: carpet and chairs look quite new. But the best thing about the place is definitely the location, with views out over the canal and the fields to Winter Hill, some 17 miles away.

Strange kind of canteen looking place, quite rude barmaid and funny looks from the local knuckle dragging regulars. Not the cleanest and IMO completely undeserving of its good reputation.

Not sure what the problem is with punters below. Thought it was a friendly pub and the 7 ales were excellent - we tried 6 different ones and 2 of them were from local breweries (Phoenix and Coach & Horses). Nice beer garden and views over/along the canal. Serves food, but did not try - looks like it could be busy with canal boat users in summer - quiet when we were there. Well worth a visit for beer alone though.

Doesn't even look like a pub, more like a home for the bewildered. Great location but absolutely NO atmosphere. Weird
