user reviews of Barristers, Leyland

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Listed in the CAMRA 2012 real ale guide I visited this pub for the first time last Saturday (23/6/12) from the outside my first impressions were good, upon entry however I was greeted by a noisy group of lads stood around the bar.

Now that said, they let me through & I was served promptly by a pleasant land lady who had no hesitation in offering me a taste of the 4 cask beers on offer. (St Austell, Wells & Youngs, Lytham & Moorhouses) a half of each was taken and all were found to be in excellent condition, so no complaints here.

The pub itself is quite large inside and is of open plan design, I'm guessing it gets busy at times as in places it's looking a little tatty around the edges. I noticed some seating and carpets were showing signs of heavy wear too.

I managed to find myself a quiet alcove away from the bar and sat besides an old gentleman at the front window, sadly after only a few minutes the noise from the lads at the bar became a major source of irritation. Nothing was directed at me of course & it was all good humoured, but the general volume and language was at times extreme.
So much for a quite pint & a read!

Sadly this ultimately expedited my departure, so In conclusion, It wouldn't be fair to judge this pub on this single visit alone as I probably hit it on a bad day, but I will be back.

Stereotypically however, it does appear to be an "old style" working man's boozer. Good beers, pleasant staff, but with an over exuberant clientèle!

I will rate this pub fully on my return visit.

This is the most vile disgusting pub I have ever been in and should be shut down. The Doormen are rude, bad tempered bullies who should be behind bars, they pick and choose who they let in, some they say are to sporty or casual or look like trouble, I don't know why anyone wants to enter this turd hole anyway, go to other pubs around Leyland keep away from here
