The Leyland Lion is a Wetherspoon's which is not quite as big as it first seems.

I arrived at the same time as 4 or 5 others, who were soon joined by more from their party. The over officious bouncers told them they didn't have any seats for them. However, luckily for them, the manager intervened and managed to seat them all. Eventually, after a short wait, myself and another guy were also allowed in. Although, we were instructed to sit outside. The reality was that once inside, you could go where you liked.

Opening hours here are also unpredictable. Their website suggests they were opening until 1am on a Friday and a Saturday. But the bouncers were warning that it closed at 9pm. Maybe this was yet another ploy by the bouncers to turn as much custom away as possible, to give themselves a quiet life. The pub was still open at 10pm later in the evening when I passed by. If I was Wetherspoon's I think I would look for some more welcoming door staff.

The interior is split up into a number of sections. Apparently it was a post office in a previous life. Toilets are upstairs, whilst I duly utilised the outdoor courtyard at the rear, despite the temperature dropping.

Greene King Abbot, Ruddles Best & Sharp's Doom Bar are the regular beers. Guests were Brains SA, Conwy Rampart & Big Bog Hinkypunk. Although, I was happy to see Snail's Bank Raspberry Ripple cider, which went down quite nicely, despite the cold temperatures and the frosty welcome.

You know you’re in a dull town when even a bog standard Spoons like this is a godsend. Sorry but Leyland is the ugly sibling of Chorley and Wigan, ruined by abysmal road systems and banefully placed supermarkets. This place was okay but a very Soviet/works canteen style Spoons, all lined up in organised tables enjoying their dinners. your best option is just to get the train to somewhere better.

A decent Spoons this one, which was quite upmarket in décor and fixtures and fittings. The pub is split into two sides leading from the main entrance. The right hand side lounge was very colourful with lime green painted walls and matching patterned upholstered banquette seating set into four booths along the facing wall. The left hand side lounge and bar was slightly bigger with the bar area running along the far wall.The main features in this section was the bright red upholstered booths, the black and white brick central wood burning stove and lots of local memorabilia depicting the Leyland Bus Factory.
Two banks of five ales on pump, so we went for the Great Newsome Sleck Dust at £1.99 a pint. This pub was very busy on our Saturday afternoon visit.
