John Smith's, Worthington / Carling A few handpumps on the bar but none were in use when I visited. Nicely decorated in standard sizzling pub style, doing a good trade in food on a Friday evening or a Saturday afternoon.
Last visited October 2018.
Northway / Dover Road
Bar du Fay "Duffey" Thwaites Smooth / Foster's, San Miguel An agreeably decorated wine bar - stone floor, wooden tables and bar front - where no-one was drinking wine, although they do have quite a range of bottles on sale. Strangely, there's a "wheeltappers and shunters" bell mounted on the wall.
Last visited September 2018.
Liverpool Road South / Hall Lane
Cask Cafe Hand pumpvarious Opened in 2018, this is a cafe during the day and a micro-pub later. Excellent ales are served, and if the front room is too busy there is a comfortable and less crowded space to the rear.

Liverpool Road South / The Crescent
Coach & Horses John Smith's / 1664, Carling, Foster's Formerly two-sided but now knocked through, and there's a dance floor at the back. Plainly decorated and perhaps a little threadbare in places.
It's unusual nowadays to see a bookie's in a pub car park but it works here, with a number of customers shuttling in and out to place bets before watching the race on the pub's TVs.

Hand pumpHouse Beer / Carling, San Miguel Good old-style traditional decor in this large free-standing pub partially knocked through into one room but retaining some partitions. There's a pleasant beer garden, but watch out for the wasps!

John Smith's / Carling, Carlsberg, Coors Contemporary chain dining pub decor in this large inter-war roadhouse. Despite being knocked through it retains a bar end and a lounge/dining end, and they've even got separate gents.

25 Bells Lane, Lydiate, by the Leeds & Liverpool Canal
Scotch Piper
Hand pumpBlack Sheep, Hand pumpJennings Cumberland / Carling, Grolsch Reputedly the oldest pub In Lancashire, dating back to 1320. A thatched building with three drinking areas all served from a minuscule counter in the corner. Two rooms have concrete floor and ancient rustic wooden benches, the third is more comfortable. Everywhere has low wooden beams, perhaps slightly marred by the sixties-style lampshades.
When I visited on a Saturday lunchtime I was the only customer.
Grade II listed building.

Hand pumpTetley, John Smith's, Tetley / Budweiser (US), Foster's My notes on the Everest:
A pleasant two-sided 50s house, nicely looked after. Someone once told me this used to be Sir Edmund Hillary's local, but I think he may have been winding me up. (Thanks, Ernie.)

Wetherspoon's took over in 2012 with a substantial refurbishment with modern decor with a Meccano theme.
