Visited yesterday afternoon; plenty of older gents in and a guy with his wife. The front bar was pretty quiet but there was Countdown on in the back room and a bit more conversation going on in there. Very much an old traditional pub, and still smells smoky. At the bar, four hand pumps. I had the Entire Stout by Hopback Brewery, at £1.50 for the half so pretty reasonable. I can't remember what the other three options were on cask but there was a pale ale that I had not seen before. Very much feels like a locals' pub especially in the afternoon, but was not unfriendly at all.

The highlight of a midweek mini-crawl in Warrington after the excellent Tavern on Church Street, this high-ceilinged, bar-sectioned (two) and nicely carpeted locals' boozer is well worth a visit if in the area. Four ales were available on my visit - Hobos Blonde, Dunscar Blissful Blonde, Weetwood Oregon Pale and Nugget Copper Dragon - the latter two very enjoyable indeed. The locals seemed to congregate in the left-hand of the two bars and the semi-frosted lower halves of the windows keep the stares of passers-by out from a pedestrianized street in Warrington's commercial centre.

Still two rooms linked by a door opening at the far end. Both are fairly basic, one side has the TV and limited seating, just bar stools and a shelf opposite while the other side has a few tables and some very worn banquettes. Framed pictures of the Beatles with copies of their birth certificates were an unusual touch, there are also local scenes plus plenty of Walkers of Warrington brewery memorabilia.
Handpumps on both sides but they are not repeated, helpfully boards list the beers and state the type. This occasion saw Weetwood Best, Dunham Massey Dark Mild, Millstone True Grit, Abbeydale Mem in Black, Tribute, Red Willow Heartless, Ossett Inception and Kelham Island Easy Rider (£2.75). There was also a box of cider, Devon Jasper. I didn't see any indications of food during my tea time visit.
A very good range of ales and seemingly a popular town pub even if it is rather tatty inside. The exterior tiling has been well preserved.
