15:00 Pub was busy. This is in the current GBG but we took back the first pint, then the second. Both were changed without a problem but we felt we were becoming less than welcome. The third pint was little better but we drank it regardless. Shame as it is nice pub with a friendly bar maid.

Summary of Beer Scores


The pub is found in Oldham, Greater Manchester, OL1 1EN.

Near the Oldham Mumps tram stop in Union Street this pub has an interior of National Historic Interest. The pub was re-fitted in 1928 and has hardly changed since. There is a front lounge, a vault and pool room knocked into one and a drinking area in front of the servery. The servery is the focal point still equipped with working sash glazed screens. Closed March 2023 after the licensee quit. Originally a Robinsons house but sold to Inglenook Inns and Taverns in early 2017. Closed again on Wednesday 22nd November 2023 due to termination of tenancy with a sale of the building by current owner.

We have visited this pub once, seen 4 different beers and tried 3 of them.
