A good old traditional pub. 5 handpumps on the bar dispensed just Holts Bitter and Mild on this visit. As noted its a multi-roomed pub with a beer yard to the rear and some benches out front. Quiet on this afternoon and there seemed to be a Frankie Goes To Hollywood fan in judging by the background music.

A very smart Holts's pub built in 1839, but bought by Holts in 1885 which is why the interior is very different from other Holts's pubs from the same era. It's effectively 4 rooms. One has a pool table and another has 2 dartboards. There's a small lounge to the left as you enter and a large bar area. All have good looking seating and the whole pub is very clean and tidy. Holts Bitter & Mild available with Sharps Doom Bar & Tribute both with clips turned round, so there's probably guest ale here sometimes. My pint was £2.24 which is the same price as the nearby Bridgewater, but the pint was miles better. Which explains why this pub is in the CAMRA GBG2015. Friendly barmaid and locals make this a very good pub.

The Bird in Hand is a strange looking pub,that looks a bit like a chapel,the pub is situated next to the Spinners Arms,but set forward of it.
Once inside there was a decent sized smartish room,that seemed different to most Holts tied houses i have been in,the room was comfortable enough.
The pub is a Joseph Holt tied house,there were two real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Holts Mild which went down very well,the other beer was Holts Bitter.
This was a decent enough pub but very different to the other Joseph Holt houses in Eccles.

Pub first visited 21/3/1987
