SING FOR YOUR CIDER
Your search for authentic ales and classic ciders ends at The Ale House.
A traditional pub with a contemporary vibe, they specialise in cask ales drawn from hand pumps.
Do you lean towards ciders, but haven’t committed to a favourite? Try a sampler. Three third-size pours are presented on a tasting paddle.
If you wish the ciders to be as tasty on your return visit, try singing to a few trees on the way home. Sounds silly? Well, it was certainly serious business in England for centuries. Practising the ancient tradition of wassailing, locals would visit orchards that produce cider to offer songs and incantations meant to ensure a good harvest.
The Ale house is located at 36 Church Street, Horwich, just 10 minutes by car from the hotel.
