Impressive, rambling old building with lots of cosy drinking areas. JW Lees Bitter in superb condition on my visit. The pub is Cask Marque accredited. Friendly welcome, cosy atmosphere and the bitter was a very reasonable £2.80 a pint. A definite 'must visit' when in the area. 10/10.

I've been wanting to have a pint in this pub for years. So I was in Middleton and decided to nip in. This pub is very old and historic. It wasn't full on the Saturday afternoon, but the atmosphere was friendly and the Barmaid pulled a decent pint. If you're in Middleton I suggest you try this pub for it's surroundings alone. The interiors exsposed beams and quirky floor and doors are fantastic. Well worth a visit.

Lovely old building, both outside and in, with a number of drinking areas and clearly much history. We arrived just before opening, and were soon enjoying a fine pint of Lees' bitter. Two disappointing aspects were the absence of Brewer's Dark which the GBG indicates should be available, and the barlady's assertion "No food today, we have no chef and I can't do both". Still well worth the visit, however.

Genuinely historic mediaeval building on the road north out of Middleton town centre, thought to date back to 1587. The handsome, leaning Tudor exterior gives way to a very long and rambling interior, although it has been considerably altered down the years. As you enter, the bar goes off to your right with a labyrinth of low-ceilinged rooms to your left. Corridors down either side of the bar give way to various semi-separate rooms, one with a fire. At the top is the maginificent 'Sessions Room' which wouldn't look out of place in a National Trust property- a huge room, hall-like almost, with wood panelling, a grand stone fireplace and chests of furniture. Apparently this once acted as a court for the town.
Lees bitter the only real ale, although it was in good form on my visit.
The pub has been altered, and carries an unfortunate feel of chainy corporate branding- the same drinks promotion posters, TVs and gambling machines found in all Lees pubs- which does detract from the atmosphere a little.
However, it retains enough character to be worth making a trip- not something which can be said for most pubs in these parts. Worth a visit.

Awful. Like most of the pubs in Midd. To be avoided.
