Assembly (Bar)
“On the main road south of the station in a large shop unit just before they end and give way to residential areas. The venue encompasses the second floor too so there's lots of table space on the ground floor, mostly at the front as the bar is against the side wall at the rear with a row of worthwhile keg option from craft brewers up and down the country as well as from the local area, backed up by a couple of microbrewed cask ales. Toilets are upstairs where some more seating exists. They show football on the big screen.“

“Close to the Wetherspoon, it's a shop unit conversion with a purpose built central bar area, and the lion share of seats behind, although there's a few tables at the front where fridges full of craft cans and bottles also exist. There's both cask and keg to choose from with decent local or regional options from microbreweries found here.“

“In its own large brick building on the right if you’re heading into Urmston from the Manchester side. It has car parking space around it and an outdoor area too. The parking space is needed as the restaurant section of the main bar, which spans the front part of the building is popular, but if this area is full you can also enjoy food on the regular tables closer to the service area as this is just as convivial a place to eat. It’s a lovely decorated pub mostly with framed photographs of local and international people of notoriety on the walls, but the place looks well kept with good lighting and quality furniture. If you want to drink with the locals, you’ll probably find them in the smaller bar side which is to the rear and side of the building, but equally as well kept as the main part. Here is the place to go if you want to watch live sport with your pint. There’s as full as it gets selection from a JW Lees pub with several hand pumps that always include the current seasonal special, both its lagers as well as Khukuri in bottles.“

“In the far North-Western part of Urmston where the houses have to finally give way to the Manchester Ship Canal, this pub in an older building has a lovely look and atmosphere. It’s traditional in style but the furniture is slightly more newer in design and it feels fresh. It’s a one room affair but a large one with a couple of central pillars backed by wooden panels. Dining plays a large part in this pubs fortunes and it has a restaurant section beyond the main bar, but you can eat here too. There’s two cask ale pumps and both were full courtesy of the Caledonian Brewery during my visit, and Theakston’s Best Bitter was available in keg form. The car park is at the front of the building and is large enough, the patio area is the the pubs side and is not large enough!“

“In its own large red brick building, this pub is convivial and serves a very low-rise leafy area of west-Manchester. It’s a very familiar set-up with a big central bar separating two distinct areas, the bar side with pub games available and a very plain best room area that is used for dining as well as drinking. There’s plenty of room in both and there’s a relatively large fenced garden area at the rear with a grass square suitable for children to play on. The large car park is next to this. There’s no real ales but a couple of Theakston beers out of keg. This place also shows live sport.“

“Umston’s station house has been put to great use with its collection of bohemianesque open rooms either side of the main central bar area that stocks a great range of real ales. It serves food, dogs are also allowed to inside. It’s patio area faces right onto the platform, which makes it the best National Rail Station in the area for drinking and catching a train towards Liverpool as you just have sip up and exit through the gate as pulls in. There are a few picnic tables on the other side of the building but there is a less attractive car park as your view.“

“Popular but ordinary Wetherspoon pub lacking the attention to detail in the furnishing. The usual range of ales and beers are available and there is clearly a loyal local clientele with message boards to indicate this.“

“Good beer (4 pumps at the moment) usually from Hydes, Hornbeam, Dunham Massey, Coach House and Bazens). Good value, tastey food with friendly staff. No TV or video games“
