The Barley Mow, Warrington

More real ale on my last visit with family for a meal. Cheshire Cat by Weetwood, Rev James, Blonde Witch, Hobgoblin, and one by Robinsons which I think was Trooper. I had the Cheshire Cat which was OK. Staff not very accommodating when requesting substituting sides (somebody wanted beans instead of whatever the meal came with). The meal I wanted wasn''t available so had to make a second choice, a three way chicken burger which wasn''t really anything special. The ordering process felt like hard work, and the ale wasn''t outstanding. Doubt I would be back for food or drink, and would probably try one of the many other pubs in Warrington instead. It looks a nice building but that, for me, was its best feature.

The Rising Sun, Manchester

Visited yesterday afternoon. 8 pumps at the bar, one off with an amusing pump clip boasting "The Knackered Pump Company, 0.0%, guaranteed to be clear, a little watery" which did amuse me. I went for a pint of Drop O'' The Black Stuff by Springhead Brewery, a pleasant porter at £3.90. Can''t fault the place.

The Unicorn, Manchester

Paid another visit yesterday, to refresh my memory on this pub, which was as vague as the review I left in 2013.

6 pumps at the bar, 3 on each side. I checked both out and was glad I did, as the one "interesting" option could have been overlooked otherwise. On offer was Bass Bitter (which the older crowd seemed to be drinking), Black Sheep, Adnams Southwold, and Elderflower Ale by Purple Moose. I went for the Elderflower Ale, a nice subtle elderflower taste and very pleasant. Price was £3.20 for the pint. A traditional feeling multi room pub with friendly service from the lady behind the bar.
