Great Ale (At The Market) 

Your one-stop Micro-bar and real ale bottle shop for all your locally sourced craft beers and ciders! We are situated in The Lifestyle Hall of Bolton’s award winning indoor market, right in the heart of Bolton town centre.

With a selection of over 70 different bottled beers and ciders, you’re sure to find something to suit your taste. We are especially proud to offer beers from all over the North West of England including, Stockport, Radcliffe, Ramsbottom, Cheshire, Middleton and, of course, Bolton itself. We stock Seven Brothers (SEVEN BRO7HERS) range of ales from Salford.

Our extensive range of continental beers includes the gratifying Troubadour and the appetising Kona selection, so if you’re looking for a great selection of beers – look no further!

Our cask beer is a constant rotation of locally sourced real ales and is available on tap throughout the day and we also have one ever changing craft ale and one great pilsner available on draught, along with a varied selection of draught ciders.

It's not just great drinks, after our expansion we now serve great food too. As well as a traditional Ploughman’s lunch we offer a range of small plates including olives, breads with oil/balsamic and meat or cheese anti pasti. And don’t forget to check the blackboard for weekly specials. 

Just in case we haven’t convinced you to come and visit us yet – we even encourage our customers to try our cask beers before you buy - so don’t be afraid to pop in and ask for a sample of these wonderful ales before treating yourself to a pint or two!
