Advertised as a real ale pub on its website, it was somewhat disappointing in this respect and not quite as I’d imagined it to be after venturing in. This pub is on the main road between Burnley and Todmorden, close to the small town centre of the latter. It’s a small building with the main seating area at the front which looks like a new romantics venue from the 1980s. The bar to the rear of the building faces the side wall and does stock real ales on three pumps but the selection was unexciting. There was more well known keg lagers and ales available and a JW Lees ale seems to be always available here. Beyond the bar existed only a pool table and the crowd was a friendly bunch beyond middle-age.
