A friendly if basic pub. Only the one cask ale despite the 2 handpumps and this was Pedigree. Its not a bad place and better than the one opposite. Being an afternoon drinker I've no idea what its like of a night. And I ain't from round here so never will.

Simply furnished one roomer with a variety of seating areas. There's a small beer garden at the rear and there's also pool and darts. Large screen TV showing cricket when I visited early on a Friday evening. A real mix of clientele and a friendly barmaid added to the pleasant ambience of the pub. There are 2 handpumps, but only one was on which was Howard Town Wren's Nest. The barmaid told me that they usually only have the one on as current trade doesn't allow for more except occasionally. The one beer is a constantly rotating guest from a selection of local breweries. There's a CAMRA discount of 10p per pint. I liked this pub, it's definitely one of the better pubs in Ashton.

A street corner community local with a very fine glazed tile exterior and traditional etched glass windows.The interior is now open plan but the supporting beams hint at an older two room layout.To the right of the entrance there is a pool table ,while to the left there are three large banquettes with many tables and chairs .There is a dart board and two flats screens that show Sky Sports and ESPN but on my lunchtime trip sadly Dickinson's Real Deal was being aired,why bother ? The bar is in the right corner and there was a very friendly welcome.Two handpumps but only one operational, serving a decent pint of Holt's Maplemoon and very good value at £2.10.There is a good collection of pump clips on the beams and clearly the pub's description as a freehouse is accurate.
The lunchtime crowd was a mature group who didn't seem to mind having strangers in their midst,and given the good beer quality,I would try a revisit to see what ales are featuring on the bar in future.
