Restaurant details
Reviewed 18 June 2014

We stubbled across this pub in the pedestrianised retail streets of ormskirk. From the outside it is clear that there is something quite unique about this new pub.

It seems that its owned by the Bursough brewery, subsequently the real ales on offer are from the brewery. As you would expect, the beer is kept and served beautifully, in addition there is an impressive array of continental beers.

The layout of the pub is traditional, since this was a retail shop they have done a decent job in renovating the premises. The cabinets along the wall are very creative and contain examples of the bottled beers, the innovative decorations on the walls are most interesting aswell.

For a great real ale and a different pub from the boring corporate establishents give this a go, promise you will be back.

Fantastic selection of ales served in great glasses. Some of the Belgian stuff was pricey but worth it. Would definitely go again.

An excellent establishment which has been unfortunately labeled here as a restaurant, although I'm sure the upcoming addition of food will propel it to the heights it deserves. With friendly staff eager to meet all your beery requirements and an unrivalled selection of beers this is a must visit pub in the north west. Also featuring live music from a selection of great local artists it proves great for an all day session or a swift one after work. Once you pop in the hop, you won't want to stop. Enjoy!

Despite the small size and total absence of food on the menu, this pub has enough redeeming features to warrant a full five out of five.

There is a comprehensive menu of beers from all over the world. A good selection of wines and ciders, plus a good specials board.

This is how a pub should be. No tv, no banging music and "no urban sportswear". Jus good, reasonably priced, beer in a relaxed environment. It's a simple formula but one every other bar in Ormskirk has forgotten.
