The Eagle Inn, Salford

In a somewhat intimidating industrial area and difficult to find, but worth the effort. A throwback to an earlier age of how pubs used to be.
A Holt's tied house and on my visit the Bitter had run out leaving only the IPA available at an outrageous (for Holt's) price of £2.90!

The Baum, Rochdale

I was disappointed in this pub. As a CAMRA Pub of the Year, the first thing I would have expected was a wide range of beers in top condition. The Baum had neither: the range was limited - nearly all pale hoppy citrus beers (mainly from Cornwall and the Isle of Wight on my visit) and I didn't think they were in more than average condition.
The interior of the pub is a modern pastiche of a Victorian local. OK if you like that sort of thing, but not authentic in any way.
On the plus side the food was good and cheap and the service quick (but it was a Monday lunchtime and even then they got one out of six food orders wrong).
Won't bother again

Corner Bar, Crewe

Agree with most of what's been said so far. There were three Salopian beers on when I called on a Friday night and the one I sampled was in good form -although you may want to ask them to remove the sparkler - If I pay £3.15 for a pint I expect just that - a pint!
Not the sort of pub I'd want to spend the evening in but handy for Crewe station and probably now the best bet since the British Lion closed.
