    We got the last table at the Masons, Billinge yesterday. It was full for most of the night, perhaps a younger than usual crowd. Beer spot on as always but hope I won’t have to order it through an app...

    I lived in Lancaster for five years but the Stonewell and Water Witch were never regular haunts. Never made it to the Snatchems Golden Ball which I rather regret now as I think it has closed down.

    Same situation for me here on the Greater Manchester - Merseyside border.
