The New Inn, Clitheroe

Oh hello it’s Jon,

This is a post about the pub featured in Pubcask 14. If you want to hear our thoughts about it in more detail you can have a listen on the player below! So to start off you may ask what on earth I was doing up in Lancashire. Well I was doing some work in Manchester so I thought I would visit my brother Chris in Clitheroe beforehand and he could take me to his favourite local pub.

After a lovely pizza in a local Italian we walked the short distance to the pub.

The New Inn is a large pub; it looked like it was once a house. When you walk inside you get an instant cosy feel with the narrow corridor taking you straight to the bar. When you arrive there you realise that the quirky feature about the pub is that there is no main sitting area, instead there are three rooms to choose from. Our room was laid out with 5 sets of tables and chairs set in front of a soft bench which covered two walls at a right angle. This seating arrangement made the pub really warm and cosy which was perfect for a cold November evening.

So now you’re sitting down all warm and cosy you need something to quench that thirst. Well you wouldn’t be disappointed by a lack of choice as there were 11 taps serving real ale. 5 of these were from The Coach House Brewing Company based in Cheshire and the others were Moorhouse’s in Cumbria and the local Bowland Brewery.

Below is the list of beers we tried. If you want to find out what we thought of The Coach House and Bowland ales you can listen to our podcast here.

  • Coach House Brewing Company – Lemon & Ginger, 5%
  • Coach House Brewing Company – Blueberry Classic, 5%
  • Coach House Brewing Company – Farriers Best Bitter, 3.9%
  • Coach House Brewing Company – Pete Postlethwaite’s, 4.6%
  • Coach House Brewing Company – Gunpowder Mild, 3.8%
  • Bowland Brewery – Devils Rock, 3.8%

I reviewed Moorhouse’s ales in another recent trip in the North West. To see what I thought of their beers click here.
