I've changed trains many times at Crewe and have contemplated walking here many times before. But it's a fair walk from the station and tucked away just to the east of Crewe's town centre. I'd heard good reviews about the pub and was expecting good things. But to be honest, I was slightly disappointed and I didn't think the Borough Arms was as good as Hops. This is a typical local boozer, with an L-shaped bar and another side room. Conversation rules. The ale selection is also good. On this visit, they had 9 ales - Abbeydale Dam Good Stuffing, Coastal Ocean Sunset, Oakham New World Order & Inferno, Cairngorm Trade Winds, Idle Valley Jaded Pioneer, Wadworth Dray Bells, Fyne Ales Crystal Highlander & Thornbridge Jaipur. They also had 2 ciders - Westons Old Rosie & Cotswold Cider Company Yellow Hammer. I opted for the latter, which was perfectly fine. But I was short-changed by the young barman, who seemed completely confused by what I had given him. It was eventually resolved. But I don't think he had a clue what he was doing! My review may feel a little negative. But my score reflects the average that the pub currently has. This is a really good pub. But I was somehow expecting something even better.

Visited yesterday and found it still as per my previous review - busy with all bar stools occupied, friendly East European barmaids and a good selection of ales in fine condition. This and the Hops will remain my regular ports of call when in Crewe although both are a fair walk (15 minute or so) from the station.

A marvellous drinking house. Apart from the nine real ales including one brewed on the premises there is a superb selection of European beers both on the bar and in bottles. The neat garden oasis out the back is surprisingly quiet considering that the main railway line is on the other side of the wall and that there is a busy road bridge next to the pub. They could do with some parasols up during the hot weather though. Twenty minutes walk from the railway station and situated on the next railway bridge due north. Worth a vist.

Great little traditional pub with a good selection of real ales from independent breweries, mostly at sub £3 prices, often considerably so.

Very friendly (Eastern European?) staff.

A good selection of well-priced and well-kept ales to choose from and plenty of other options in terms of European draught and bottled beers. All the bar stools were indeed in use - I assume that they are the preserve of the first regulars to arrive and I was one of the only two customers to sit elsewhere. But the atmosphere was fine and the two barmaids, one of them Polish, were pleasant and efficient. All in all a good experience.
