See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Formerly the general post office, now a Weatherspoon house. The longest bar in town with three banks of hand pumps. Two pumps usually dedicated to cider, with the remainder serving a great range of ales from across Britain. Favours the stronger ales in winter. Many separate drinking areas with raised levels at either end of the pub. Small area to the front for alfresco drinking. Serves an eclectic mix of serious real ale drinkers, rail travelers, shoppers, families, couples and visitors to the adjacent Blackburn Cathedral.
