One of two on opposite sides of the road and the better one by far. 6 handpumps on the bar and its a nice enough pub. A U-shaped interior splits the pub and the area to the right is split again into two areas. Pool table to the rear. A nice pub.

A neatly decorated two roomer, still with it's central bar. The right hand side is partially set up for dining now and there's a raised seating area to the left. There are still 5 handpumps, but only 3 on all serving Reedley Hallows beers. There's a 50p per pint CAMRA discount which brought the price down to a very reasonable £2.50 per pint. The pint I had was in very good nick, it's much improved since my last visit.

The last time I called in this pub was after the Bolton Beer Festival a couple of years ago. At the time I couldn't understand how a pub whose beer was so average could get into the GBG. It's still in the GBG2011 and I still don't know why as my pint of Tetleys Dark Mild was poor. There are 5 handpumps selling Tetley Bitter & Mild plus 3 "guests" which were the stunningly boring Robbies Unicorn, Jennings Cumberland and Bombardier. It's a pleasant looking pub with an island bar and 2 rooms, one of which looks to be used mainly for dining during food service times. Sadly as mentioned the beer quality was very poor. I don't think I'll be calling for another couple of years at least.

Large, opened up town centre pub. Rather classic traditional pub in design there are areas on both sides of the bar.

Stately, comfortable pub and the beer quality was excellent.
