John Smith's / Foster's, Stella Six 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 Saturday afternoon.

Northway / Dover Road
Bar du Fay "Duffey" Marston's / 1664, Foster's 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. A tapas menu was on offer but the customers were too busy nipping to the bookie's next door to order any.
Strangely, there's a "wheeltappers and shunters" bell mounted on the wall.

Liverpool Road South / Hall Lane
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 pumpTetley, Tetley / Carling, Carlsberg Very nice old-style traditional decor in this large free-standing pub partially knocked through into one room but retaining some partitions. They serve a fine pint of Cask Tetley. Food. There's a pleasant beer garden, but there were too many wasps when I visited!

Hand pumpTetley, Tetley / 1664, Carling, Foster's A very nice traditionally decorated lounge and bar in this classic 50s Walkers house. Seems totally unchanged between my 2004 and 2012 visits.   QuizDay2

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.
