Albion Ale House, Standish

Close to the town centre traffic lights and diagonally opposite an Aldi store is this micropub with quite a narrow frontage but stretching back to a secret garden which I did not investigate. An added bonus for motorway travellers is that it is only about 5 minutes from Junction 27 of the M6 and is dog friendly. 5 or 6 ales are usually on with more at weekends, almost all relatively local and around £3 per pint. The usual pub snacks are served, crisps, nuts, pork pies and also a Lancashire cheeseboard. Open all day with a steady stream of customers who get a friendly welcome. Well worth calling in.

The Red Lion, Studham

An attractive pub overlooking a vast common with a carpark to the front and plenty of roadside parking and a garden with children's play area to the side. There is also a smaller seating area outside the front door. You enter into the bar area with another seating area to the right and a dining area to the rear. There are a choice of three regular ales and a constantly changing guest, the beers on my visit being Greene King IPA, Adnams Southwold Bitter, Timmy Taylor Landlord and an Otter summer special, the name escaping me. Unfortunately the Otter was not really to my taste although there was nothing wrong with it but the Adnams was as good as I have had anywhere. Definitely worth a visit especially after dog-walking around the common as the bar area is also dog-friendly.

The Bell, Studham

An old-fashioned pub accessed by central front door with a cluttered room on the right set up as a tearoom/gift shop with only a couple of lager taps and a nicer room to the left being the main bar and dining area. A couple were singing the praises of their food but I was there for a beer. A guest beer from Tring Brewery was advertised but unavailable leaving a choice of Greene King IPA or Doom Bore/Gloom Jar. I decided the latter was the safer bet but only just and I wasn't in the least bit tempted to stay for another. Although the staff were perfectly polite I feel the pub could be so much better. To be fair it is an attractive building with outside seating to the front, a sizeable garden behind accessed from the side and dog-friendly.
