After a year when most of our local pubs have spent more time closed than open, it’s still a great novelty to sip an ice cold pint in a sunny beer garden.
Here’s our guide to which pubs are open locally – and what you need to know.
The Traveller’s Rest, Lowton
The Traveller’s Rest on Newton Road is welcoming diners and drinkers to its lovely beer garden, which has seven covered tables and 20 uncovered – all available on a first come, first served basis. At busy times you may be asked to limit your stay to two hours to give others a chance.
The pub is offering a smaller menu in the garden, which is also available to takeaway. Take a look at their website to see the menu.
The Queen Anne, Golborne
The Queen Anne has put lots of effort into improving its outdoor space over the past 12 months and its now looking really inviting! There’s no need to book but it is first come, first served, so you may be asked to wait for a table to become free. Why not pop down and enjoy a hot or cold drink and even some delicious pub grub!
The Rams Head, Lowton
The Ram’s Head’s beer garden includes a play area for children. No booking is neccessary.
The Red Lion, Lowton
The Red Lion is looking really lovely – they’ve recently created a new addition to their lovely beer garden: The Lion’s Den, an ingenious pub outdoors!
The Millstone, Golborne
The Millstone, on Harvey Lane, Golborne, is welcoming customers to its beer garden. Also, with limited shelter from the elements the pub is also warning people that in bad weather the garden may have to close.
Robin Hood, Pennington
The Robin Hood is serving a delicious garden ‘finger food’ menu and you can relax in their beer garden with a cool, crisp pint. You’re advised to book a table or ring ahead before you travel to the pub so make sure you will get a seat outside. Call them on 01942 261313.
Hare and Hounds, Lowton
The Hare & Hounds is part of the Sizzling Pub & Grill chain, and you can book your table at the Hare and Hounds on their website.
The Stonecross Pub has a small outside area where you can eat and drink in the sunshine.
