Mid evening and a few customers in mainly diners. Relaxing cosy and comfortable atmosphere belies its Spanish restaurant façade.

The owners of this place seem to have done a brilliant job of dividing this place in to restaurant, pub restaurant and drinking bar area, it was very full tonight but service was almost instant and I was able to find a table at which to sit and enjoy my beers. I am always impressed that a small place like Parbold can support four busy pubs. I have not listed all the beers that were on sale, but there were five in all.

I had trouble finding the way in as the entrance is hidden at the back by the car park and not easily found by pedestrians looking for an entrance from the street, a friendly member of staff opened a locked door and let me in. I was able to get a look at the brewery whilst wandering around the exterior. With the exception of myself I think all the other customers were dining, and the food looked good. My favourite of the three pubs that I visited in Parbold today.
Problem Child - Rascal3.80Excellent
Problem Child - 24 (Gyle 24 Racked 29 April)4.00GoodI was told this was a brew that did not turn out as planned, and was just sold as Gyle 24. Cluster hops. A good tasy pint.
