good old local pub

good old pub in leigh..whats good is you get to drink decent whiskey at cheap price. although sometimes their tables/menus are sticky, but if you just want somewhere cheap for a drink, then this is it!

Good selection of drinks, beers, and cocktails (great for sharing pitchers in the Summer Garden).Staff and management friendly, with... More

No matter when or the time we arrive the food is always good. The only reason I have not given this place a 5 star is when you have a mix grill you have no choice on how your steak is cooked. Always nice and easy place. Good beer and great pub food 👍 can not go wrong for a... More

A large group of us went for Friday lunch. We have tried many restaurants over the years but this was the first Wetherspoons. The manager kindly reserved a slightly separate area for us - we are a lively group of ladies and it works better that way! The choice was pretty good and as it was Friday there was a... More
