The Griffin Inn  

An imposing building in the middle of nowhere, or so it seems. A warm welcome is guaranteed and the beers are also a very welcome sight. All come from the on-site brewery - Porter. The pub has the look and feel of your nan's front room - very cosy, very welcoming. There is a seating area/dartboard at the front on the left as you enter - bare floor and large hatch area. The bar is to the rear of the pub and has stools at it. As all the beers come from the Porter brewery, they are lined up on hand pumps to delight at. And the price is also something you will marvel at - ?1.40 a pint. All are served well and taste just great. There is a TV in the bar area, but it's not always on. The other seating area is to the right of entrance. and has tables and chairs and some settle seating. The walls have the usual brass and old pictures on them. A huge single beam goes right through the pub and over a small dais with a table for two... A real fire next to the gents has a nice mantle and provides some real heat for the pub, exposed as it is on the edge of a hill overlooking the town. Not quite in the centre, it is out towards the A56 on the Accrington side. There is no food served here. No accommodation here. Well worth finding out if travelling north from Bolton, Bury, Rochdale.
