Aqualung . left this review about Old Bulls Head

I've passed by many Holt's pubs this year and have been put off by the banners outside advertising BT and Sky Sports. This one is no exception but on this occasion I had time to give it a go.
Inside there's a public bar to the left as you enter and a Saloon to the right. Both seemed basic traditional old fashioned rooms but with the exception of the TV screens which are neither traditional or old fashioned.
I went in the right bar as that had three hand pumps. The two screens at the end were showing very boring music videos (not Pink Floyd). Thankfully the stage was unused and there were no pool players.
The three hand pumps all had Holt's Bitter (£2.28) which was in excellent nick and a fine old school Northern bitter. I was also pleased to see the legendary Holt's prices still in evidence especially as I thought the barman had said £3.28.
I enjoyed my visit here but would avoid on a Saturday night or when a major sporting event was on.

Two roomed pub with Holts bitter being the only real ale on on this visit. 3 handpumps in the main lounge and 1 in the bar area, all with Holts Bitter clips on. Its a friendly pub for an afternoon drink. I liked it despite some bloke with his guitar setting up and proceeding to ruin some already classic crap songs and two songs in it was tedious Pink Floyd shite so time to move on.

Large multi roomed pub on Eccles main pedestrianised street. There's a fairly small tap room to the left which had a TV showing Racing UK with several punters watching. The large main room to the right has a pool table at the bottom end and was very busy at about 4 on a Friday afternoon. A karaoke rig was just being set up in the corner when I arrived, so I knew that this would be a fairly quick visit. It's a Holts pub so 3 of their beers available on handpump Bitter, IPA & Maplemoon. I had a pint of the bitter at the great price of £2.07 and settled back to people watch. It seems like a friendly local in the middle of town with most people knowing each other. Lots of banter going on in several different groups including a bunch of loud, shrieking women around one table. It's not a pub for the faint-hearted, but I quite liked it. It's one of the better pubs in Eccles. When I walked past later on my way back to the station it sounded like there was a cat strangling competition being held, so I guess the karaoke had started. :-))
