The Slipway, Burscough

The Slipway
Close to Burscough on Crabtree Lane, you will find the Slipway, a fine West Lancashire canal-side pub. As you'd expect, the setting is wonderful with the front of the pub facing the Leeds-Liverpool canal. On the outside of this attractive pub, there is ample car parking, an enclosed beer garden and a children's play area; bouncy castle hire can be arranged if required. The pub also has a permanent marquee which is available for hire for parties and other celebrations and functions .

It is a single-roomed Daniel Thwaites house which has been recently refurbished to a good standard, and when we called in, the available real ales were two popular Thwaites beers, Wainwright and Bomber: our party found these beers to be in good form. The pub is also noted for its food: it has an extensive menu, and food is served all day from 11.00am to 8.00pm every day. They offer a special carvery menu on Sundays, and their Sunday roast dinners are a speciality. You can even phone your food orders in advance to avoid having to wait.

They hold a darts night every second Monday, and every Thursday is Bikers' Night. You can find them on Facebook, and they offer free Wi-Fi. The pub is open until 11.00pm during the week and midnight on Friday and Saturday. The Slipway even has its own private canal moorings.

The Slipway is at 48 Crabtree Lane, Burscough, Lancashire L40 0RN. Phone: 01704 897767. Website here.
