Made famous by The Macc Lads seminal song " Charlotte",this was a major surprise.It's a fine looking red brick building,which Robinsons have cared for and there is much to admire inside.Carpeted with fitted bench seating either side of the mosaic tiled entrance,the wood panelled bar is attractive and three sided ,with the back lounge having a stage for the regular live acts ,including the Manc Lads tribute band.There is a fine staircase,a seperate pool and darts section and very attractive porcelain gents with photos of classic motorbikes,a theme in the rest of the pub.The ceiling mouldings are attractive and it certainly feels smart for a live music pub.
There are 4 handpumps offering Robinsons Trooper,Cambrian Way and Unicorn in decent nick.
Sadly the biggest slag in Macc was nowhere to be seen on my Wednesday afternoon visit,and I can only imagine a more earthy atmosphere would appear on Saturday music nights.
Worth a look around if crawling the real ale outlets.

This is a typical old Northern pub. It has a mix of tiles and carpets, a pool table, darts, a jukebox and a large TV screen (thankfully turned off). The jukebox was rather loud which was a bit off putting until someone put a load of Oasis tracks on.
There are four hand pumps which had four from Robinson's, namely Unicorn, Dizzy Blonde, Kerpow and Trooper Red 'N' Black. I went for the Unicorn which was in good nick.
This is primarily a local's pub but well worth a look.
