“A must visit for any ale drinker.”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

We often visit the brewery when we travel on the East Lancs. Steam railway. The beers are excellent and if you have an ELR ticket they're happy to give you samples before you buy. Try the Mad Dogs and Englishman if you want a fine strong warming pint on a cold day. Food can be good but there is a very limited menu and what's made is made fresh on the day and when it's gone it's gone so an early lunch if you want to eat is recommended.

I reckon the IWB is many people's favourite.Terrific range of bitters brewed on the premises. Very relaxed and friendly little bar. We love it.

“Amazing place and SUPERB brews!!”
Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

A great microbrewery with a fantastic first floor bar. Friendly staff, lovely atmosphere and incredible beers - ignore the only negative review below from Tyson the Beer Head - he is talking rubbish.
