We got a very good welcome when visiting here, a friendly smile from the barmaid and a hello does go a long way. The pub was also well staffed, so ordering our beers was no problem. I found the interior to be tastefully decorated, with that homely sort of feel about it.
We did notice a good few tables set out for dining, the bar area was pretty clear so we did a bit of vertical drinking there. 8 ales on handpump, we went for the Burscough Mere Blond, Copper Dragon, West Coast Pale and the Stamps Brewery Marilyn Monroe. We too were heading to Wigan from Southport, so I do recommend a break in your journey to visit here, well worth it.

Multi roomed pub which has been recently refurbished. It's very food led and most of the rooms are set up for dining although there's still a few tables available for drinkers. There's a cobbled yard to the rear which is where Burscough brewery brews its beers. There's lots of wood panelling and the floor is tiled. The walls are covered with old photos and maps and there are lots of old beer bottles on ledges. There are 8 (I think) handpumps which were all serving Burscough beers apart from 2 which had guest beers on them. I had come here as a destination pub with 4 others and was slightly underwhelmed by the pub to be honest. The beers were all in good condition but not absolutely brilliant and the Burscough beers themselves I have always found to be average. My companions were of the same opinion, so we didn't stay here as long as we had planned and had a pub crawl through Burscough and caught an earlier train to sample the delights of Wigan. So, to sum up, it's a good pub, but aimed at foodies and the beer is good rather than excellent.

This Pub is now called The Hop Vine and is a free house that at present has an excellent house beer brewed for them off the premises. Plans are afoot to create a micro brewery on site in the near future.
