Called in again after a nine year gap. The place has been tidied up a bit as has the clientele. It was fine for quick pint on a Tuesday evening. The beer range was still pedestrian, but my pint was in good nick. A bit of an improvement.

A real ale bar in a hotel is quite unusual, but this one has won several awards. I've no idea why judging by our visit. The decor is very shabby and the clientele not much better. The ale range was somewhat pedestrian with a couple of Moorhouse's beers, Tetley bitter and a couple of beer from the Southport brewery. My pint was in decent nick, but not top notch and it took ages to get served due to the strange bar layout with arches along it and loads of barstools which attracted people to sit in them all along the bar. Not my idea of an award winning pub.

Famous elegant baronial style hotel bar reached either by its own side entrance or through the hotel. A fairly lacklustre range from Moorhouses and Lancaster, not in good condition and the service was pretty poor too. Perhaps a case of living on its reputation at work here.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Baron's Bar (Scarisbrick Hotel)

I suppose this hotel bar does have a hint of the baronial, but the effect is spoiled somewhat by the competing background music and non-silent TV. However, its reputation is based on the real ale; and - despite some suggestions from some locals I had met earlier that things weren't as good as they had been - I found a pretty decent selection of real ales from eight of nine handpumps. My pint of Lancaster Brewhouse No 2 American Hop was also in good form and excellent value at just £2.10.
