John Smith's, Tetley / Carling, Foster's This two-sided pub looks a little down at heel from the outside. The lounge, however, is nicely done out with plain pleasant decor in two rooms partly knocked through, one of which has plenty of disco lights for the weekend. I didn't visit the bar side. There are some tables in the front yard. LSTV.
Noted closed and boarded up in 2017.

Mill Lane / Humber Crescent
Penlake Rail Club John Smith's, Webster's / Foster's This clean and tidy social club is hidden up a back street behind St Helens Junction station. So well hidden, in fact, that one of the regulars asked how we had found the place! (My thanks go to Lawrence for informing me of its existence.) It features a large function room, a games room with two snooker tables, and a lounge which was closed when I visited on a Thursday evening.
Now closed.

Hand pumpHolt's / Carling, Crystal In 2004 I described this as the pub with no name because the sign was missing when I visited and there was no indication of the name on the outside of the rather tatty looking building.
Returning in 2017 it was much better looking outside, and inside a well looked after two sided pub.

Wheatsheaf

Hand pumpLees / Carlsberg, Coors, Foster's A truly splendid old multi roomed pub with an unusual layout inside. Watch out for the sloping floor at the "posh" end. There is no access between the ends except through the car park! The friendly staff serve from two counters plus a small hatch, a number of the side rooms have no counter at all. The decor varies widely between the rooms.
Grade II listed, as a fine example of inter-war "brewers' tudor".
