Venue Insight


I approach the bar and order a pint of Guinness. The selection of ales and craft beer is not to be sniffed at, however we’re up north and you just can’t beat a northern pint of the black stuff. I mooch from the bar (Guiness ‘stache in tow) and move further into the venue. The back contains the performance area and a stage - box- shaped and almost inexplicably adjusted into the middle of this delightfully English constitutional abode.


the owners are no strangers to style. An array of 70’s plastic chairs, grand leather sofas and barrel stools litter the floor in a higgledy piggeldy manner, there is no particular theme to the furnishings but I wouldn’t say anything was haphazardly placed. You could even go as far to say the owners have treated the furnishings and interior decoration as an opportunity to artistically express themselves further than just what could be hung on the walls (the Rik Mayall and Ade Edmonsdon picture being a particular eye catcher in this instance).


We play a highly enjoyable set to a room full of smiling and rather appreciative people who, after talking with us afterwards, are as fond of their local hostelry as I was upon immediately entering. They mention there is nothing else within the community that provides this level of local music, attracting bands


from all over the UK to come and purvey their musical wares. This is a shame but a common theme I’ve noticed in smaller towns. This venue and the entertainment, sustenance and shelter it provides is testament to the fact that communities need places like this as an alternative to the mundanity and blandness some venues can fall into the trap of offering.


You feel so welcome in this place. Commendations to the collective of people that work together to keep this place going. We had an absolute blast visiting, and judging from the smiles, I think everyone that night did too. The Old Town House in Warrington lives up to its expectation in every way and more.
