This was the first pub on a midweek trip to Bury. A word of warning though, the footpath from the bus route on Brandlesholme Road is like a mudbath at this time of year. But it does have nice views over the Irwell. The Brown Cow, situated in a country park feels a million miles away from the centre of Bury. It was almost 2 o'clock when I arrived. But there were still a few in finishing their lunches. 3 ales were on - Wells Bombardier Burning Gold, Elland Blonde & Cottage EPA. I had the Elland, which was ok. But all of the ales were a similar style and not exactly my cup of tea. The interior is fairly cosy and I can imagine this is a lovely spot in the summer. It wasn't too bad in the mid winter either. Fairly close to the East Lancs. Railway.

Lovely place to be if the sun's out, can be full of children though so beware if you like a quiet spot! Food is good especially the mixed grill (although think the chef is scared about cooking the steak rare!) even comes with liver if you like that sort of thing. A good couple of real ales on too and a nice area to sit inside when the sun goes down!

Visited a few times while staying on the caravan site last week, and had a couple of Bank Top beers. These were changed to a couple of Moorhouses beers during the week we were there. No problems with beer or food.

This pub is set in a lovely location in the middle of a country park.Quite family orientated in the daytime (ie loads of kids running about) so i went down after 8pm on my second visit and it was much more relaxed.Limited beer choice and a little pricey but dont let this put you off its still well worth a trip down.
