The place to go for a lazy afternoon, pub quiz or last call
You can tell us more about Radcliffe.
- wellington; rams head; woolpack'papermakers;colliers;turf tavern are all closed.
- oH JESUS CHRIST IS THAT LOCKEEPER PLACE STILL OPEN? THE GUY THAT RUNS IT IS A VERY CHEEKY BASTARD INDEED,WHY? BECAUSE HIS FOOD IS DIABOLICAL, IF YOUR A VISITOR TO RADCLIFFE JUST DRIVE ON BY MY FRIEND AND DONT ENCOURAGE THE CHEF IN THE LOCKEEPER TO INFLICT HIS IDEAS OF FOOD ON TO YOU.... TRY MC DONALDS..
- quite a few have now closed down, the only decent pubs left are the woolpack which has great live music and excellent staff, and the bridge tavern which is good but slightly expensive.
- The Lockeeper is doing a two for one deal on food. yipee twice as much shite for the price of one.
- The Lockeeper is doing a two for one deal on food. yipee twice as much shite for the price of one.
- OH DEAR THE LOCK KEEPER PUB. WHAT A HOLE, THE FOOD MUST BE THE DIREST IN ALL THE LAND, THIS PUB OWES ITS ENTIRE EXISTENCE TO THE UNDER FIVES THAT FREQUENT THE WACKY WAREHOUSE WITH THEIR 12 YR OLD MOTHERS,
- The Lockkeeper pub has to be the worst food on the planet, the manager and chef should both be dragged out and shot, the hard faced bastards... very grim indeed............
- SNOOKER CLUB HAS A CRECHE, AND SUPERNANNY IS IN ATTENDENCE FOR NAWTY PUNTERS.
- the snooker club is the pits, they have the only staff in gt manchester, who will nick your glasses and bogroll. the landlord serves his ale dressed as Madonna, in one of those conical bra/corset thingies!! takes the head off ya beer man! yuk.
- Laods of scary scary pubs with scary scary people in who infest the streets at night in, of course , tracksuits - otherwise any spot behind the Offy seems popular too.
- the colliers no fighting involved
- having read about the turf(which is on water street not bolton road) the information contained is seriously outof date and anyone should check out for themselves to see the changes for the better that have taken place over yhe last 6 months now under new management
- The Wilton - brilliant, good crowd and lively on occasions - comments on rough clientelle are naive - all Local Pubs are suprisingly full of Local people - hence the name - walk in one with an attitude and your on a loser - walk in to enjoy yourself and thats what you'll do - it's not rocket science
- I just want to comment on the first notice on this radcliffe page about the pubs, have you seriously been in a pub in radcliffe recently. Id say you havent. Radcliffe is full if very friendly people and yes like anyway where people get drunk and do silly things. With regards to the statement 'the likes of the colliers i'd rather stay away', what do you mean by that. The Colliers is the biggest smallest pub in radcliffe and if you were to take a visit im sur you'll agree.
- Although the best reason to go to Radcliffe is to save a few quid on some cheap dentistry by letting a local remove a couple of them for you, it must be said that you can have a skin full on the cheap and get a taxi easily. The place is very quiet nowadays but there is one jewel hiding in there. It's the wine bar on New Church St (just off Blackburn St in the centre). You can order allsorts of drinks, the food is good and it's still cheap as chips. If you fancy watching a Liverpool footy game then go into the Bridge Tavern as they're mostly LFC reds in there with a smattering of City Blues and Manc' reds who seem to get on well enough without too many bust ups.
- There are a selection here are only some within throwing up distance of each other Lord Raglan, Royal Oak, Horseshoe, Morning Star,The Bridge,Woolpack,Rams Head, The Wellington
- I'd like to add to the first page on the particular subject of Radcliffe.
The person who related to Radcliffe pubs as rough. I dont know where you've been drinking but i would'nt class them as rough. Only places where people go to enjoy themselves. Everywhere you go you can get idiots and trouble so why single Radcliffe out?
The comment about the Colliers 'the likes of the colliers i would rather stay away from', I would like to ask you the question why? The Colliers is the biggest little pub in radcliffe, and the quotation 'there are no strangers in here only friends we have yet to meet' springs to mind. I dont know how long ago you sent this in but i would like you to come back to the Colliers and experince it for yourself. The pub has had a face lift and is now light and airy, but the people are still friendly and inviting.
- Radcliffe is a great place to drink ok yes you get a few idiots but where dont you, As for the persons comments on the pubs, The Colliers Arms is a great pub with warm and friendly people, the moto'There are no strangers in here only friends we havent met yet' spring to mind. The people are definitly not rough just down to earth, and up for a laugh. The Colliers had a bad name going back a few years but im sure if you come back now you will surely see a big difference.
- Turf on Bolton Rd was Great when Frank had it. Now it's full of kids f4rting around. Don't think it's been cleaned for months. Still do food there - but check the landlords fingernails before you decide to eat.
Masons on Sion St is great, and Stopes Tavern
- You have missed out all the pubs on Ainsworth Road. The Vic, on Redbank. The New Inn at St Andrews, the Railway, over the bridge from Constellation Luggage (as was) what used to be called the Three Arrows, don't know its name now, and is the Jolly Carter on Bury and Bolton Road in Radcliffe ? I think it is. The New Inn is the roughest if you're not from these parts, the Railway can be dodgy, but the others are right.
- the wilton on coronation road or the lord raglan r gr8
- 'The Morning Star' in the afternoon, ( because they keep the curtains closed ).
The secret snooker room upstairs at'The Turf', cheap and with a good jukebox downstairs.
- the newest and most welcome addition to radcliffe is VIVA WINE AND TAPAS BAR in the town centre, opposite homemakers. The food is great, the booze is continental and the bar-staff are beautiful. Once inside, you can pretend you're somewhere else !! A breath of fresh air
- the paper makers last orders on sunday afternoon
- The place is awash with boozers..try The Wellington at the bottom of Stand Lane else The Bay Horse at the top. Great pubs with no mither. The Swan on Cross Lane is lovely too, with a big fish-tank in it. Radcliffe is a proper drinkig town, others worthy of trying are The Masons on Zion St, The Turf on Bolton Road and The Bridge and The Colliers...and I havent named a third of them
- used to be the swan hotel in stand lane
- The Wilton Arms supports the strangest bunch of people i have ever seen
- Stopes Tavern where I had my first alcoholic drink. Then it was onto The Wellington and back to the Unicorn Now the Beer Engine. No entertainment at all in these places apart from the spot the married couples.
- The Morning Star on Seymour Street is probably he best in town, especially if you like Thwait's. Very mixed crowd from teens to nearly dead.
- The sparking clog for the evenings when youve got no money
- They arent rough youve just got to learn how to take the people
- The best thing about radcliffe, loads of pubs. But some people seem to think there rough!!!!!!!
- Pubs......arrgghhhh... what can we say about the pubs... i don't tend to drink in Radcliffe that much..... there is the likes of The Royal Oak, which i suppose is the most likey pub to drink in ... the likes of The Colliers, i would rather stay away from.... Sparking Clog is o.k as well as the Beer Engone on Bolton Road !
- The Swan & railway is not bad, they do a mean quiz night on Sundays.
- The Sparking Clog is the Pub to go to in Radcliffe. Check out the Blondes behind the bar on a Sunday night.
- Whatever happened to the Royal Oak? The Vic used to be my local and Wilton Arms - mum used to be in the darts team at the Colliers
- The only saving grace Radcliffe has is the number of pubs. They are all either dead common or dead rough. But if you want to pretend you're in a rough, slice of life, 1950s movie like the ones Morrissey loved then you can't go wrong in Radcliffe. Every pub is only 200 yards from another and in the town centre there only 30 yards apart. Don't look like a flash get though or you might get "asked out" - local parlance for a fight. froma quite pint in a
