A nice enough one roomed pub. 3 handpumps on the bar but only Burton Bitter on. A raised area is opposite the bar. Newspapers available to read but black marks as one of them was the S*n. A pleasant enough place for a quick drink.

Slightly set back from the very busy Oldham Road this is a one roomed pub with two distinct areas. The bar is to the left as you enter and the lounge to the right. The lounge is quite comfortable whilst the bar is more aimed at vertical drinking. 3 handpumps on the bar all badged with Marston's Burton Bitter which was in good nick. They sometimes have a second beer on from the Marston's extended stable. There's a jukebox and Sky Sports, there's also a large beer garden. It's a decent pub, but I'd get fed up of drinking Burton Bitter.
