A really nice traditional pub. Soft lighting, brass and porcelain plates dotted around the walls, comfy seating, wooden beams, porcelain drey horses above the stone fireplace and separate rooms. 3 hatches at the bar with a lot of pumps. Though there were only 4 real ales on they were a decent choice. Very friendly manager, staff and customers. The best pub in Littleborough by a mile.

The modest exterior does not hint at the extensive interior with four distinct rooms and an island servery.There is a large lounge to the left with fireplace and fitted bench seating,while the first room to the right has the feel of a public bar.The other two rooms are given over to darts and pool.I liked the traditional layout,and found it charming.The main bar access is from the corridor,but the ale selection blackboard was not up to date and I had to wander around to discover just what was on.Marstons Bitter,TT Landlord,Clarks Juicy Lucy,Red Lion Bitter (Robinsons) Marco Pierre White The Governor (Lees) and Phoenix White Tornado ,later replaced by Navvy.The Phoenix beers were served through an unusual optic,so you can see before you buy,which I havent seen in years,a real feature.The drinks menu included a "Mix" which I decined.It's in the GBG and this was justified by the quality of our Phoenix pints.Close to both the station and Rochdale Canal,this is a pub I would be happy to return to.
