We went here as a group of 6 on a Saturday night. It was quite busy but we were served quickly. There was lots of choice of drinks and all the beers we sampled were good.

A great little pub situated above its own brewery right in the centre of Ramsbottom. It has a great atmosphere and a good selection of alcoholic beverages to choose from.

Thank you for your lovely review. Completely understand about vapes and will address that immediately. Most of our customers use them outside, however it seems like we need a notice to request this. Hope to see you again soon.

Love this bar which serves beer brewed in their own brewery downstairs. Staff are friendly and prices reasonable

Visit every time I come to Ramsbottom, well worth it. Lovely room, friendly and a decent pint to boot.

Good choice of beers, welcoming staff and dog friendly. It is quiet small and popular just what you need from a pub.
