The Pendle Witch is tucked away down Warburton Place, which is a narrow road off the main street, so is not somewhere you’d happen upon. The friendly and chatty barman informed me that the council wouldn’t allow a pub sign or A-board on the main street so they rely on word-of-mouth and live music that happens every Friday and Saturday night. Being geared towards live music means that the furniture is sparse leaving much standing room. To the left is a games room that houses a pool table, dartboard and pinball machine. The bar counter along the rear wall supports premium keg alongside Fruli. I only counted five hand pumps, and only one was in operation drawing Hophurst Brewery’s Snuggle Mild. Thankfully I’m a big fan of chocolate stout so would have probably chosen this beer if all the pumps were on. The barman assured me that all five pumps are normally active and he was just waiting for a delivery. I’d give this place another go if in the area, if only to see more beers on the pumps.

Enjoyed our visit to this 2019 entry in the Good Beer Guide. Up an alley and into a lovely conservatory area. Bar full of Moorhouse beers plus a couple of guests. We enjoyed Wigan Old Boston.

This is lovely hidden gem. Its down a narrow alleyway and though the exterior doesn't really look like a pub it is a fully fledged boozer inside. At first it looks like its just a house with a conservatory attached but when you walk in you are confronted with a bar containing 8 handpumps in two banks of two. All bar one of them were Moorhouse beers, the other being New Order Stray Dog. 3 roomed (if you count the conservatory) with a pool table in the room to your left.
