Rigby's was one of 4 pubs we visited yesterday afternoon, along with the Lion, Ranelagh's Tavern and the Sanctuary. The latter two are not listed on here. It's been a while since I've been in here. But little has changed. It was packed on our Friday visit, with little space to manoeuvre in the bar area. The courtyard at the rear was also busy. However for the first time, we sat in the room at the back, where there were spare tables and where it actually feels quite quiet, compared with the rest of the pub. The ale selection wasn't the best. Okell's Bitter & IPA are the 2 regular ales. They also had Castletown Ale from Okell's and 3 other guests - Kirkstall Pale Ale, Lancaster English Pale Ale & Exit 33 Thirst Aid. With no dark beers or ciders, there was nothing particular to suit me. So I resorted to a Thistly Cross cider from a bottle. Still fails to hit the spot.

Decent pub, excellent ales but needs to turn the central heating down!

Split between the lounging/eating area and the public bar, with a large outdoor seating area, coat hangers on the bar which is a nice touch. 6 ales on, 3 from Okell's and at least one local beer, a few American craft berrs in the fridge including Firestone brewery from California which I have never seen before in the UK. I went for a pint of Okell's IPA at 3.10 that was well kept and quite nice, bar maid was friendly.  Not really a proper pub or anything, feels a bit dated but not in a scruffy way, quite interesting to look around at.  Quite a friendly bar but I don't think it's worth hanging around for more than one.  Seems to reserve tables for groups (presumably eaters) which is a shame.

Not as crowded as I remember it a few years ago. Still a good range of ales and a range of ages amongst the customers. Worth a visit if in the city centre.

After visits to the Ship & Mitre and the Vernon, we continued along Dale Street to Rigbys. It's been a while since I've been in here. We rarely get this far along the street. Having met the owners a few months ago in Ukraine, I decided to try it out once again. Inside is still quite nice. But it's always difficult to find a seat. Yesterday was no different, as many were in to watch the live football. We retreated to the outdoor courtyard, which also has a TV screen and was also packed. But we found a corner to stand. Had a quick look in the Lady of Mann that shares the same courtyard. But the ale range in there wasn't the best. In Rigbys itself they had Okells Bitter, IPA & Saison, Jennings Dark Mild, Purple Moose Snowdonia Ale & Odyssey Bootlegger. Real cider is no longer stocked. Ok for a quick drink if you're down this way.
