The Hen and Chickens on Deansgate has introduced a discount scheme for CAMRA members.
Local cask ales are discounted by 50p a pint to £2.50 for card-carrying members. Recent offerings have included ales from Big Clock, Lytham Brewery, Bank top, Dunscar Bridge, Black Edge and Reedley Hallows.
Regular beers include a house ale ‘Clucking Mad’ at £1.75 a pint and Thwaites Nutty Black at £1.70 a pint.
Branch members were made welcome at The York on Newport Street during a visit after the January meeting. The Hobgoblin Gold was very well kept, and a good time was had.
Renovation work is due to start shortly on the Dog and Partridge
