The Cross Keys Hotel, Burnley

Really good old fashioned pub, 4 constant Real ales from Bowland, Thwaites, Copper Dragon and Moorhouse's. Bit poncy inside now but at least they have kept many of the old features, although at some point in the recent history the fantastic Venetian bar was partly dismantled - criminal. That apart - well worth a visit.

The Coal Clough Hotel, Burnley

Used to be a good pub but has really gone down hill ale wise, on last visit the only real ales were mass produced Worthington and Courage, we left without sampling. Is it any wonder local pubs are closing? "Massey's" no longer on tap, I have it on good authority that only the name was the same!!

The Talbot, Burnley

Recently re-opened and renovated and what a good job they have done. 3 Thwaites Ales a Timmy Taylor's and Black Sheep, Wainwright's at 2 a pint. Well worth a visit, big spacious and comfortable pub.

Swan Hotel, Burnley

Chav tastic! Burnley's very own Stone Island/Burberry stronghold, such a pity as the structure of the building is fantastic. The toilets are in the old police cells! Has apparently started selling real ale but never been available when I have dared enter. Real pity that such an iconic building in Burnley is such a poor pub.

The Bridge Bier Huis, Burnley

Decent pub but overrated, uncomfortably busy on a football match day and too much effort is put into the pubs attempts to serve as many Real Ales as possible and this means that the beers are constantly changing, not really satisfactory for a session drinker. Of course they do have the distinctly average Hydes on permanently. Could do with another regular to give regular visitors the chance to stick with one ale. Daft name as one of the posters has already mentioned, saying that the pub was once turned into Bar Mambo, so a slight improvement on that! What's wrong with the traditional Bridge Inn? Beer quality is usually good but please stop constantly changing and give us a bit of stability. Think less of targets and more of customers!

The Ministry of Ale, Burnley

Old fashioned basic pub, cracking beer first, comfort second, constantly changing two guest beers and two staple home brewed (Moonstone) beers. Great atmosphere, trouble free, just a pity they changed the name from the traditional "Nelson".
