Been here today but it was closed. It's just of the M56.  Photo #1 is the view from the pubs carpark. The M56 is about 1mile away but you can still hear it.  This is another one I'll have to return to.

Looks like a house. Such a pity that so many of the SS pubs have their own individual opening times, due to the location and trade. I have been to some recently and they are not open at say 1 or 2pm. Best to ring and check.

I guess that if you own two pubs quite close to one-another it is just economics to open just one of them.

Not too bothered about it being closed, it will give me a excuse to visit it again.

I know the ones in the Rochdale area, have staggered opening times, eg 12, 2 and 4. Probably due to the large number in that area.

I've fallen in love again, but this time it's a pub and what a little gem this pub is.   Talking to a local the managers are new but have been in the trade for years. If you are anywhere nearby do pop in and see for yourself's, it's just off the M56 and half way up the hill.

Most of these photos will remain for members only, sorry.  But you can always join and then you can see around 4000 photos of all the Sam Smith's pubs I've been to.

Great photos Ian, has this pub had a refurbishment recently. As it looks different to my last visit. Does SS own the derelict land at the back, as I wondered last time I was there.

Not to sure but the pub dose look nice, must admit I only had a lemonade as I still had well over 120 miles to drive home. :(

The derelict land at back leads up the pubs former bowling green. So yes it dose all belong to the brewery.

Looking at the last photo, from the tree on the right the land goes out of shot to the left, that is where the Bowling green is/was.

Might have just had a lick of paint then. Thought that the brewery might own the land next to it. As is the case in so many SS pubs.

Anyone know the status of the OBB being cask or not, in the 2 Frodsham pubs? Monte is either free flow leccy pumps or bright/non cask by the looks of it. Any gen on opening times? Cheers!

I reckon the OBB is bright, not cask, the taps look like all the others, and the plates where the handpumps were are like a gap in a toothy smile. Oh dear. It's saved me a journey anyway. Ta for the pics- keep 'em coming. Thought HS were touchy about such things; if so, you carry on mate, and good luck! Cheers!! :DKB
