No. 25 The Olde Cottage Inn
Visited on 31/3/11. To be honest, after the Beehive and the Flookersbrook, we needed a decent pint, so we legged it over Hoole bridge and by-passed a couple of minty looking pubs (more later obviously), because we knew we could get one here. We weren't disappointed. Standing proudly amongst Brook Street's second hand shops and cheapo take-aways is this traditional Victorian pub serving top notch ale - on this occasion Timothy Taylor's Golden Best - a pale mild. Lovely. The fire was roaring and the place was packed. This is obviously a well run boozer. Salvation. And home.
