This very atmospheric Nicholson's pub that also appears in the 2016 and 2017 GBG's was the last of the 4 in Leigh that we visited and in my opinion is the best, it’s just a shame we didn’t have more time here.

Busy in the public bar where seating is at a premium while the other bar is more for diners. The seating area to the front was empty but it was a cold day so I’m not surprised.

6 ales on the hand pumps, the Bays Gold from Torquay was on top form and according to the barman was proving to be a hit with the punters. In addition there’s a good selection of European lagers and Symonds’s Cider on draught.

The Men’s toilets are outside in a stable type building.

I think the Crooked Billet is a really good pub and best in the Old Town area. Score’s highly.

An airy and comfortable pub which seemed to be the best on the High St. Not terribly welcoming on our visit. The Adnams Southwold was well above average, but not fantastic. My pescatarian companion approved of the seafood shack alongside the outdoor drinking area.

Lovely pub and the first you come upon walking from the station.
Good selection of beers, tried the Nicholson's Pale Ale and the Adnams Southwold Bitter. Both excellent condition and reasonably priced. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable.
There's a lovely outside eating area with a superb sea food shop next door. You can buy your sea food and eat it in the outside area.

Good selection of cask ales - the Doombar I tried was very pleasant. Decent food too at sensible prices. Pleasant location overlooking the river with a large outside seating area. Only 5-10 mins walk from the station too. Recommended!

Has recently been awarded the local CAMRA groups pub of the year,an accolade it deserves,beer selection is always very good,and reasonably priced , normally Thornbridge Jaipur is available ,worth a visit just for that excellent ale.
Staff in the main helpful and efficient although a barmaid on our recent visit did give the impression she 'd rather be elsewhere,she could well be now,that aside if in Leigh Old Town this is a must check out pub.
