The Flying Horse consists of three seating areas in front of a long L-shaped bar that supports twelve hand pumps. The available beers are listed on a television screen on the back bar and a premium keg range is also available alongside Carling. More seating is found behind the bar and a couple of plasma screens were showing Sky Sports whilst some background music played. Food is available, the pub classics on the Specials board were all priced under £10 and there are food deals throughout the week. The service was polite, but my pint of Staropramen wasn’t the best.

This was our first pub to visit on our trip to Rochdale and what an excellent place to start. The interior is traditional in style, with a good sized mahogany bar facing you as you enter, with lots of seating options along the front. Curiously there were branches fixed all around the ceiling areas. Ten ales on handpump, served by upbeat and friendly staff, who all take care and interest in cask ales. I went for the Eagles Crag Alter Eagle and Black Lodge Fear of the Dark, which was an excellent Black IPA at 5.9%.

Just had a refubishment and the quiz machine & bandits have been removed. They are trying to have more of an emphasis on food. Currently only selling ales from the borough of Rochdale. So Lees, Wilson Potter, Hay Rake, Pictish & Phoenix. They're also now giving a 10p per pint CAMRA discount.

Still one of our regular haunts. Several cask ales always available usually with one each from Phoenix & Green Mill plus a couple of Timothy Taylors beers along with a couple of guests.

Has just had a refurbishment inside and now has a new carpet and is newly painted throughout. They've even spent some money on the gents toilets which really needed it. Still a good range of handpulled beers though.

One of our regular haunts on the Rochdale real ale trail. Impressive stone built exterior directly facing the even more impressive gothic Town Hall. Inside is one large room divided into several areas by wooden partitioning and seating. There’s also a pool table in the area round the back of the bar. Has two large TV screens often showing sport of one kind or another. Has 6 handpumps on the bar. Serves Lees Bitter, Taylor’s Landlord and Best Bitter and 3 changing guests, one is always from Phoenix and the other two regularly feature local breweries such as Green Mill, Hornbeam and Moorhouses. It can get a bit raucous when the football is on, but it’s a decent pub.
