Just been in tonight, first time since the refurb and thoroughly impressed. Really busy, good atmosphere, good mix of clientele and lovely decor. It's nice to see a refit where it isn't made too poncy. Couldn't get a table for food but it looked good. Good selection of beer and thankfully no GK ales on pump despite it being a GK pub! Now a pub worth going to.

Plastic pub, no real beers, no atmosphere. The upstairs room is good for meetings though, so not all bad.

You’re not much of a @Drinker if you’ve fallen for the Greedy King trick of putting in the beers they’ve bought out and now made in their Bury factory
Old Trip being one as DJ states
The Oak is part of the GK corporate machine so don’t be so naive

To be honest Boozer, if there's a beer that I like, i'll drink it regardless of who brews it or what any stuck up hard core Harvey's drinker says about it.

Yes no Harvey's unfortunately but Hophead and Tribute are great alternatives! I hadn't realised that about Olde Trip. I'd usually GK but this was a pleasant change from the usual.

QUOTE OF THE MOMENT
I like the fact it's safe enough to leave windows open and shops don't need to put grills up at night.
