One of the city’s fastest-growing pubs for its real ale reputation has cemented its reputation for just that.


Pints were raised in celebration by the Guild Ale House in Lancaster Road.

The former charity shop was converted by Gary Quinn in 2016 and has been rammed pretty much ever since with those after an ale.

Now the Campaign for Real Ale has crowned the Ale House as Central Lancashire’s best pub.
