    Yes, I heard this morning. What a shame. Oldest pub in Bolton. My God I’ve had some nights in there in my youth. ‘Cider house’ RIP

    That chair seemed to get sat on and broken on a weekly basis, usually with some help from Bolton Rugby Club…

    A good pub in Bolton is Barristers, some good beers in there, quite a few Belgium and German beers and cider. Probably the only good pub in Bolton TBH.

    RIP MAS

    according to a mate in Bolton has been closed.

    Am visiting the UK in Dec and this was perhaps the only half decent pub left in Bolton

    Barristers and Man and Scythe were the only reason for ever venturing into town.

    One of the oldest pubs in the whole Country actually… place is steeped in history. Cracking boozer.

    Word is its only Temporary. Let hope!

    I’d heard it had shut too – a few old school mates on FB want to buy it!

    Been going in the Scythe myself since early ’80s…. Gutted.

    Anyway, that pub just can’t stay shut. Its a Jewel….
    My sister worked there for years too – when “Strawberry Nose” ran the bar… What an utter **** he was! I saw him bar some young chap on the spot once for asking:

    “Can I have a pint of cider please?
    Strawberry Nose says – “what cider?”
    Young lad – “Er, er….”
    Strawberry Nose – “Come on!”
    Young Lad – “Er, Orange Cider.”
    Strawberry Nose – “ORANGE CIDER?!!!! ORANGE CIDER!!!!!!! WHATS ORANGE CIDER!!!!!! GET OUT! YOUR BARRED!”

    And that was that!
