Paid another visit on a recent weekday afternoon while in Sale.

Of the 8 pumps, 7 were on, 2 by Greene King, 2 by Morland (Golden Hen & Hoppy Hen), Butcombe Bitter, and Old Rosie by Westons. I appreciate that doesn't add up to 7, so I must have forgotten what the other one was - it obviously didn't jump out at me!

I am a fan of the Golden & Hoppy Hen ales and it was nice to see them available but as I had a couple of bottles waiting for me at home decided on the Butcome Bitter instead. Sadly it was not very inspiring, nothing wrong with it as such, just nothing to write home about.

Service was swift. Finding a seat not a problem. The booth I sat in had a massive tear in the leather seat. Some tables were full of empty plates and glasses. A few people in but not packed out.

Visited on a weekday evening. 8 pumps of which 7 were on. Went for a pint of Cornish Coast (Penpont Brewery) at 3.7%. Possibly the palest ale I have ever had, but very pleasant, lots of flavour and very refreshing.

Pub is large with a few different levels. Plenty of tables. Worth a visit!

Expensive and unwelcoming. Don't go in here if you have walking problems. There are stairs everywhere.

Quite a good selection of beers and people inside not scallified, well-presented and friendly-feeling.
When busy (weekend) you can get squeezed and it can be expensive, especially for the fact you're in sale. Also, the canal-side brings flies in summer and cold in winter, though I haven't seen any dead badgers floating by just yet

Real ale is kept well and it is reliable each week.
I visit with two friends each week following our sporting activity. The staff welcome us and they start pulling three pints of our usual real ale after greeting us.
We visit in the early evening. Lots of space to sit, good food.
I disagree with previous contributer about the beer.
The pub is centrally placed in Sale and close to the tram station to get into Manchester so it does get busy later.
