Called in again, there are still 2 handpumps contrary to the previous review. Sadly, they were serving the rather mundane Youngs Ordinary and the rather more unusual Highgate Mild. My pint was in good nick though. A pleasant buzz around the pub as the mainly middle aged clientele had a post work drink. I went to play on the quiz machine and had just won a couple of quid, when a group of loud mouthed idiots arrived and promptly changed the whole character of the pub. Nothing was said to them by the staff, so I assume they're known to them. I left. Down a point for allowing numpties to ruin the pubs atmosphere.

When I worked in Milnrow quite a few years ago this pub was The Commercial, I think. I assume it's now named after the Hayley Mills film although there's a hell of a lot of difference between Milnrow and Crete. It's now a nicely decorated one roomed lounge bar with a small pool room at the rear. I visited at about 9 on a Friday evening and most of the clientele were older couples. There were 2 handpumps on the bar and my pint of Marston's Galaxy was in good nick. There was music from the 80's playing at a sensible volume, the bar staff were friendly as were the clientele. I enjoyed my visit to this pub and will certainly call in next time I'm in Milnrow.
