I called in here after a visit to the Bowland Brewery Beer Hall nearby (a beer exhibition rather than a pub), so this was bound to feel more pub-like. But what an excellent pub it is, the traditional multi-roomed layout making for small, enclosed spaces where people are close together and conversation often ensues. The area by the bar is a little like a drinking corridor, and I was soon made to feel right at home. There are 10 hand pumps on the bar, with four from Moorhouses, two from Coach House and one each from Ilkley, Prospect, Copper Dragon and Goose Eye. I went for the Coach House Farriers and Moorhouse Premier, both of which were in excellent condition. I managed to tear myself away to catch my train - what a pity Clitheroe is such a long way from home.

According to WhatPub this is a Thwaites pub, though I am not convinced as there is no signage with Thwaites branding to be seen (unusual for them) and none of their ales were on at the bar (also odd). I counted eight hand pulls at the bar with nothing mainstream spotted, at the time of my visit breweries included Elland, Prospect and Reedley Hallows. My Griffin IPA by Reedley Hallows was £1.50 for a half.

This is a very traditional feeling multi room pub which was quite busy inside on a Tuesday lunch time. I made the most of the lovely weather and sat in the rear beer garden which is a nice space. It has some kind of gazebo to one side which I assume may be used as a smoking shelter during less pleasant weather, but who knows? There are also a few picnic tables to the front of the pub.

A pleasant friendly multi-roomed pub. There are 2 small rooms left and right as you enter and beyond these is the bar area. Beyond these is a rear room. 11 handpumps on the bar with beers from Bowland, Coach House, Reedly Hallows, Beer Monkey and another one I've forgotten. Worth a visit.
