|Smashing pub. Visited several times and found at least 10 active handpumps all seemed to have good beers. Went for Geo.Wright Drunken Duck & Northern Lights....great! Also Arizona + DHB and a handpump stout.|
Not for kids - more traditional beer drinkers but several couples around.
Some good music & some not so good but all live music must be encouraged.

|I don't know how you can say this pub is the cheapest in town. The Malt Shovels, a 2 minute walk away is cheaper and so is the Wetherspoons. |

|Altrincham, my home town, I have visited this pub a few times now and aside from it's sheer size and impersonal feel, it is indeed a great "real ale" boozer. |
Both the beers & food are the cheapest in town (by a country mile!) and on my visit beers on offer were from Phoenix, George Wright, Timothy Taylors, Facers, Coach House to mention just a few, so no complaints here with the range or the quality of ale's on offer.
There are usually 10-12 ales on tap at any one time, so it's hard to find one that doesn't fit the bill. For the price, the food is nothing short of remarkable, OK, it's not the Ritz, but it's good wholesome pub food, plenty of it & excellent quality.
The clientèle in the afternoons seem to be of an older age bracket, although on band nights, Thurs, Friday & Sat I imagine younger/middle age crowd come in?
Aside from it's size, the weakest point for me were the toilets, which could do with a make over, that said, they were clean and fit for purpose.
Overall? A paradox of pub really, catering for two types of clientèle, one half set up for the regular band nights, the other, a more traditional style room for socialising. If it's a real ale you're looking for, you won't find a better pub in Altrincham, but If you like a quiet pint, then visit lunchtime/tea time.
John the owner is a friendly guy and a very knowledgeable cellar man too, OK, it may be a little imposing & impersonal, but for real ale & food, it gets my vote every time.

|went in last month. 11 ales available on a Sunday afternoon. Friendly barmaid was very informative about the different ales on offer. Not a flash pub but some of us don't like that sort of thing. Sky sports occasionally available in side room|

|Large old town centre pub opened out into one big area with a space for bands on. Had a few ales on and unusually Taylor's Ram Tam which was in pretty reasonable nic. Rubettes and BCR were providing the background ambience until the live band kicked in.|
