Owd Nell's Tavern, Bilsborrow

Surprisingly busy on a sunny late Wednesday afternoon with family groups and dogs in abundance which I accept will not appeal to some but it's a spacious building split into a number of smaller areas and lots of outdoor seating. I wasn't eating but the menu appeared to be reasonably priced and offering the usual pub classics with plenty of takers. There was a good selection of ales and different styles on tap and my choice of Cross Bay Sunset 4.2% was very refreshing particularly as I was only charged £2.40. The average price in my neck of the woods 200 miles south is currently around £3.80. I only found the place in passing having turned off the M6 southbound onto the A6 to avoid holdups ahead. Along this stretch between junctions 33 and 32 there were other decent-looking pubs and garden centres etc so ideal for a break to avoid being fleeced by motorway services. In summary well worth a visit particularly for families with children in tow although there's enough space for everyone.

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.
