See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Built as an ale house in 1870, paintings of the former pub adorn the walls. It was, for most of its life, part of the Wilson's empire. A popular community hub, it serves both local cricket and football teams as well as the Failsworth Blues group of the Manchester City Supporters Club. There is a separate vault / games room and family room as well as the large lounge. To the rear, is a lawned and paved beer garden complete with Willow tree. Ample parking is available to two sides. Food is available Tuesday to Friday lunchtimes and a quiz is hosted on Thursdays. Look out for the large, etched glass window, in the lounge, depicting a fisherman, by a pond with willow tree and the pub itself. Excellent disabled access throughout. Reopened 4/7/2020
