This place keeps opening and closing with monotonous regularity ! Currently up for sale / to let. It does appear to be open at the moment, but never when I expect it to be, so haven't tried it out to see what beers are now served

It’s a Joules pub, Jim – but not as we know it ! The sort of place where a bloke stops in the middle of his game of pool, and starts dancing drunkenly to the very loud music playing on the jukebox ! Meanwhile, the TV is showing some obscure football match that nobody is watching. AS mentioned the beer is from Joules, either 2 or 3 of their limited range. I tried the Slumbering Monk. My friend (a local CAMRA guy) raved about how good it was, but it was way too cold for my liking

I had 40 minutes whilst changing trains in Crewe. I walked in and out of the very quiet Corner Bar, which has seemingly gone downhill. Only a Greene King ale was on. I continued to the British Lion and was surprised to see that this is now a Joules pub. It's unlike any other Joules pub I have visited, with a much more down at heel feel. The jukebox was on very loud and Dutch football was on the TV. It had an edgy feel. Slumbering Monk, Blonde & Old No. 6 were the 3 ales on. I had the latter, which served a purpose before I had to leave to catch my next train.

Called in yesterday for a quick one before my train - they had Joules Blonde (which was OK if not brilliant) and Slumbering Monk with a third handpump not in use. I would call again if I did not have enough time between trains to make it to the Borough Arms or Hops and back.

In here Saturday evening and a few others present.
This place is a bit basic with a pool table and loud music was playing.
3 hand pulls but 1 was blank.
The other 2 had Joules beers Blond and Slumbering Monk.
I had a pint of the later which was ok but not brilliant for £2.90.
