    Haven't been in though so don't know if they done anything with the interior.
    Not yet plenty of decent beers and they still get live music on.

      I know one of the barman. Looks quite nice on the pics I've seen

      • 'Baker Street' on Avenham Street (that'll confuse the postmen) is looking like our next new watering hole as the 'Holt Pub Co' (not to be confused with Holts of Manchester) continue to redevelop the former er.... (I don't know) building just down from Angelo's.

        Said company own the Smithy Inn in Much Hoole, Seven Stars in Leyland and pubs in Wigan and Burscough.

        • Presumed they'd given up on that place, been a long time without any news.

          Won't have a patch on So Bar...

            I saw it in late November and they'd completely gutted the place and gone back to breeze block / brick and then when I saw it again in mid December the windows were in and looked like it was progressing well. I thought the plan was to make it a bit like Alberts Schloss in Manchester? If so and done right and it could really be a hit.

            So Bar was great. Thursday nights it wax bogof and for every drink you got a free shot, so buy one bottle for £2 and you ended up with 2 bottles and 2 shots!

              Aye, Thursday nights used to be belting.

              Start off in Fishers, move on to So Bar, then Revs, Manyana's and end up in Lava or Browns. Off your tits and you've barely spent £40.

              This Baker Street could do very well with Stratos across the road.

                Is this the pub that used to be called Gastons back in the day when I was a teenage drinker supping Sass like it was going out of fashion? Not been in since Gastons closed down and changed its name to whatever it was then called.

                    It was a good pub...... They served a very nice pint of Guinness.

                          I'm afraid I've never set foot in the place be it Gaston's or So Bar. Furthest I've ever got down Avenham Street was Stratos when a works doo took a wrong turn. Ended up ordering and downing a beer of some sort to join trainer clad colleagues who had been refused entry.

                          Not sure if the German Beer Hall idea is still happening or not. Last I was told the guys who own it are going to make it similar to the places they already have but hopefully I'm wrong.

                            I had my 18th in Gastons in the late 80s.

                            Yard of ale but most went over my shoes

                              Why do I feel that I know you? I lived in that place in the late 80s. Trev and Jan ran the pub back then.

                                Iím sure we will have crossed paths.

                                I was the good looking one with an amazing sense of humour
