This sixties estate pub contains a nice large open bar side, plain but well cared for, with an LSTV at one end and a raised area with pool table at the other. The lounge side was shut when I visited. Now closed and demolished.

Brambles Sports Bar (Butlers) (Ginos) (Central) Rather pleasant totally plastic decor in this long narrow one roomed bar, which has a small dance floor at the back. The flat TVs above the bar are impressive. It has a late licence and everyone out in Kirkby seems to come here when the pubs close.

New Johnny Todd A plain tidy council estate boozer, quiet when I visited on a Saturday afternoon. The theme tune to TV's Z-Cars, some of which was filmed in Kirkby, was an arrangement of an old sea shanty called Johnny Todd.

Park Brow This rather pleasant plain working class pub with two bars is another 50s construction on this enormous council estate. It has comfortable bench seats in the bar and a nice lounge and was quiet and friendly on a Sunday afternoon. Unusual to see keg Higsons still available. Boddingtons Pub Company.

Peacock
A classic plain late 50s estate boozer, still doing a good trade on a Tuesday afternoon. Only one room appears to be in use, in a much larger building.

Wetherspoon's Gold Balance
Hand pump
Opened early 1999, this is well looked after, clean and tidy and serves the usual Wetherspoon's good beer.
The Rev. Thomas Wilkinson, who was vicar of St Chad's, Kirkby in the 18th century, invented the Gold Balance and the Pocket Balance for sovereigns.
I understand this is now closed.
