Bolton & District Pub Guide

We have visited every public house in Bolton & District. This list contains the brews on sale, car parking and our own up market/down code.

Code: Car Parking, Large (L), Medium (M), Small (S), None (N). The code number is not a quality number or anything to do with the beer. It refers to the type of pub. e.g. if going out for a meal or wanting plush surroundings choose a higher number. More down to earth or a night out with the lads, choose a lower number.
