Was dubious of entering this place as the windows are high and you can't see in,it looks dodgy but I couldn't be more wrong. It's a L shaped pub with a dartboard up one end, they have Sam smiths on and mcewans lager , locals appears friendly and one struck up a brief conversation on entering . Two tv's with horse racing on and a quiz machine, I will prob call in again if I'm passing

This is a proper estate pub, even though it's only a couple of hundred yards from Yorkshire Street, the main drag through Oldham. It's a split level pub with a couple of steps down to the bar from a small lounge area which also has a quiz machine. Very busy on my Friday early evening visit, but I was acknowledged by the barmaid as soon as I got to the bar with a friendly "I'll be with you in a minute love". It's an all keg pub and I spotted a sign for Sam Smiths Dark Mild which was a ridiculously low price, around £1.30 per pint. I got chatting to a couple of the locals who seemed very friendly. I also won £4 on the quiz machine. So I had an enjoyable 30 minutes and a pint and came out with a profit. I liked it in here and would call again, although I'd probably not bring Ms CAMRA wth me as it's a bit boisterous.
