A rather garish looking pub for where it is. Situated in a market square its somehow just looks out of place. Its a decent pub with an older worldly feel inside. Lots of offshoot areas and child friendly of an afternoon, which can be annoying. Real ales available.

Quite clearly the oldest surviving building in the immediate area and reputedly dating from 1561, this is a black and white timbered building, set in what was once the town market but now rather crassly part of the dated looking Golden Square shopping centre. Whether all or part of the building is of that age may be debatable however once inside there are beamed ceilings, stained old boarded floors, leaded windows and lots of dark carved wood. It is a bit of a warren with lots of separate interconnected areas but that adds to the appeal, something new around each corner. Lots of food and drink deals ostentatiously advertised, partly spoiling the old ambience I felt, five handpumps on the go though, Robinson's Cwrw'r Ddraig Aur, my choice, pointed at rather than named, Ossett Ales Spellbound, Hobgoblin, Cottage Trafalgar Ale and Cottage Medusa. A decent pint, the service was friendly and fun as the barmaid on me declining a loyalty card as I was "passing through" said drily "God, lucky you" as if Warrington isn't all things to all men for whatever reason.
Décor was the usual old local scenes plus a few of trolleybuses, lots of plastic foliage but to be fair there's not much natural light inside, it is a large building. Outdoor seating to the front.
A nice old building with some history even if rather corporate once inside and a nice drop of ale. Good luck to the barmaid too, who's humour was right up my street, I hope you find what you're looking for.
