“Set in its own large and historically relevant red-brick building, this is very much a Joseph Holt pub for locals, but certainly worth a look in if you’re in the area of looking for a few ticks from this brewer. There’s a couple of hand pumps that will have the bitter and another of Holts cask choices, as well as all their keg lagers being available, and all their bottled beers are in a fridge under one end of the bar. The interior is several rooms which have been practically been made open plan around the huge main room for which the large rectangle bar, a full 360 degrees is the centrepiece. Although the decor and furniture are nothing much to shout about, the layout of the place is certainly rare enough for those who enjoy pub architecture to enjoy. For ale drinking football fans all the live Premier League matches are on here and expect plenty of United and City fans in when they are showing. The new FC United of Manchester stadium is also being built on the other side of the cemetery which is opposite the pub. The entrance to the building is at its side and faces the car park big enough for a dozen vehicles.“

“A huge JW Lees pub in its own building in its own grounds in an urbanised area of Moston. Unless you specifically target this place like myself you’re unlikely to come across it by accident. However, if you do you’ll find a two pub (both of considerable size), linked by a central to the building bar. There’s more than enough parking at the pubs front and some outdoor seating too, and if you’re in the main room you’ll be able to find your own space to sit and drink comfortably given its size. This is also an excellent place to watch the live football as they have a huge screen here for that purpose. The ales are limited to the brewers selection but it’s a decent enough choice to be had in cask or bottle.“

“Walkable from Moston train station, this JW Lees pub faces the Greengate roundabout - a traffic junction with one exit that leads directly to the JW Lees Greengate Brewery. Along with the regular ales from the brewer there were two seasonal cask options here as well. It’s a two room affair with the main area a huge space with several defined drinking areas all with windows as the building occupies the full corner of two of the roads that converge on the traffic island.“

“What strikes you about this Holts pub at first is the sheer size of the stand alone building it is housed in, it’s simply huge by modern standards and the whole of the ground floor area is given over to drinking and various other entertainments that satisfy a local crowd, however even if you’re not a regular this place is big enough for you to find your own space in one of the various areas to sit in. It’s open plan in both of the rooms, the smaller (although still bigger than many pubs) room is the bar side with pool table and darts board - there’s also access to the rear patio area from here. The main room is the largest with updated furnishings that please. Disappointingly for its size the drinks selection is slightly poorer than usual for a Holts as there is a bias towards lager with the three award winning Holts brews of this type backed up with some bottles of the same. There’s a couple of ales available in cask and keg though but not the full range. Service was a bit poor in here too although there’s no problem with finding a parking space around the building.“
