user reviews of 9 Gallon, Warrington

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Small bar, similar to a micropub, with a central bar and a few other tables. Most people were congregated around the bar itself. Whilst this was not on my original itinerary of Warrington pubs, I'd had it recommended to me and thought I'd try it if there was time. There was just enough time for a couple of halves before heading back to Warrington Central for my train. Ales on offer were Wychwood Dirty Tackle, Front Row 99, Pied Bull Black Bull, Heritage Life Force, Totally Brewed Captain Hop Beard & Thwaite's Wainwright. Ciders were Weston's Old Rosie & Rosie's Pig & Hogan's Harvest Press. I was served by a barman, who was later joined by the landlady. The latter was asking everyone if they were CAMRA members, as they are entitled to a discount. Unfortunately the barman was not doing the same. So I missed out. But this was a busy pub and was my favourite pub in the town. Recommended.

Nice modern pub/bar which had a decent selection of real ale on offer at the time of our visit on a Saturday evening in October. Was fairly busy but managed to get a table round the back of the bar. We had a pint of Startled Octopus, which was a pale/blonde if I remember rightly, and is apparently by Buccaneer. Never heard of the ale or the brewery before, so took a chance. Was not disappointed.

What initially looked like a traditional copper topped table soon turned out to be a slightly wobbly wooden table with some kind of mock copper topping which didn't even stick down to the table top very well. The interior was otherwise very pleasant.

Yes - would be happy to go back and revisit.

When The 9 Gallon first opened it was a welcome addition to Warrington's Real Ale pubs. However it has gone downhill. The beer quality varies between average and terrible. Frequently, ales are cloudy; sometimes a little, sometimes obviously undrinkable but still being sold. The ale quality used to be ok - what has changed, I don't know. A great disappointment after a promising start. Staff are great, ale awful.

Former convenience store turned pub. Specialises in cask beer & cider and whiskeys. Has an island bar with 13 hand pumps (2 for cider) and only 1 keg lager (Brooklyn). Nice dark wood interior. Friendly and talkative staff. Value is very good. I hope to return to check this out again in the future.

Been awhile since I went here, but here goes

This was definitely the best pub I went to on my crawl of Warrington, despite visiting all the GBG entries.

Small recently opened pub with a central brick bar and seating on stools around the perimeter. 9 or 10 real ales available featuring mainly local micros. I tried the Problem Child brewery Good Spankin, and 4Ts Stout both of which were excellent. They also have a good range of whiskies.

A word of warning - the gents toilet consists of one urinal - nothing else !

7/10 - an exciting newcomer
