The long-standing folk singaround every Thursday at the Ship Inn in Haskayne has moved to another canalside pub, the New Running Horses, 25 Bells Lane, Lydiate, L31 4EN. This follows the temporary closure and change in management at the Ship.
The pub is called "new" because in 2008 it was closed for six months for extensive refurbishment after an arson attack. It is a food-based pub, although I'm not certain about the beer, but I remember many years ago it used to sell Walkers ales. I'll check what the position is now.
As before, the singaround is free and open to all who want to join in or just listen.
8 March - P.S: I called into the Ship today. They were serving Celtic Gold, Holts IPA and England's Pride, with a Holts Bitter pump clip turned around. Although Chris the licensee is free trade, he does his business through Holts.
