The building has been converted into an expensive restaurant.

Latest New...

I called in today 10/6/11 & spoke to the new tenants/owners, I am reliably informed that the pub will re-open next Thursday 16th June! The pub has been acquired by a London based pub company with a view to securing the premise free of tie. I'm told that "real ale" will feature, although on first soundings a little generic, with Wells~Bombardier & Black Sheep mentioned?
There doesn't seem to be any change in the pubs interior at this stage and no evidence to suggest it will be, so it looks likely that the pubs drab d�cor will remain the same. (Minimal investment? Suck it and see maybe?)
Anyway only time will tell, but good luck to the new owners, my fear is though, it's probably a little too late.

Breaking News.....

The "Good Sam" closed a few months ago and until recently was boarded up. Then on Monday (5th June) they came down & activity was evident within? As always in Ramsbottom rumours abound, but I understand that talks with the owners (Enterprise Inn's) are under way with interested parties* seeking to re-open this former real ale bastion? Undoubtedly this pub has potential, but in these difficult times, with pubs closing every day it's hard to envisage it's revival? Additionally, with a new brewery/bar opening in the village very soon, the limited opportunity that did exist, has now been lost.

* Bank Top Brewery, Bolton & a new concept pub chain?

At last life has returned to this small community pub, former temporary manager Ellis has now returned and taken over as the tennant. What a transformation, four real ales usually on tap & at weekends often five. Golden Pippin (Copper Dragon) is always on tap, with local guest beers usually from Millstone, Phoenix, Osset, Elland & Bank Top. The pub shows live sports events and has a quite back room for those who just like to relax. Whilst not in the 2011 Camra real guide, it can only be a matter of time before you see this beer oasis re-appear.

This once great "working mans" pub lost its way when it closed in 2007. That said, it's now open again & is on it's way back. A change of heart by the present landord has seen big improvements recently in the beer varieties. Usually a minimum of 3 x cask ales can be found on tap ay any one time, but sometimes as many as 5! The introduction of bar snacks in Feb 2010 has helped improve trade even further. A small friendly local, featuring 3 rooms, main lounge, a pool room & small side room. The latter features a wide screen TV & live soccer/rugby matches are reguarly screened. The pub itself is a bit tired and in desperate need of a "make over" But who knows, if the pub continues to improve, the owners (Enterprise) might just get their hands in their pockets? Although I doubt it!
