18:00 visit A short bus from the Eccles district found me alighting at the massive Trafford Shopping Centre bus terminus. From there it is an easy 10 minute walk to the Chill Factore, a huge ski slope, that cannot be missed on the horizon! Restaurants and bars are attached to this, with this very modern JD attached to the front of the building. Very large, and very pleasant at this time, with some small groups in here and there. I came here on another trip to the area in October 2008, and good to see it all again.
Robinsons - Shark Attack4.10ExcellentVery nice too. And another winner. Also, stonking value at £1.10 a pint! And it's been on as a regular for over three months too. Excellant.
Shepherd Neame - Bishops Finger5.00Not TriedAnd there it is, a rare spotting of a Kentish Ale in Gtr. Manchester!. Actually, this is the second Kentish Ale found up here on this trip?
