The Bromilow Arms
Like most Premiership football grounds, the majority of pubs in the immediate vicinity are for home supporters only on match days. However, The Bromilow Arms is a bit of gem: located just a few minutes from the Reebok, it offers a good selection of reasonably priced ales, served up by friendly staff. Home and away fans mix quite happily. The only downside is that it can get very busy as it is quite small.The Bromilow Arms Lostock Lane Lostock Bolton BL6 4BP 01204 697 541
Just up the road is The Barnstormers, which has benefited from a recent refurbishment. It is modern, clean and serves good, fairly priced food.The Barnstormers Lostock Lane Lostock Bolton BL6 4BL 01204 691 797
The Beehive, also just a few minutes’ walk away from the stadium, is a Grade II Listed former coach station serving a decent selection of beers. If you fancy staying over, there is a Premier Inn right next door.The Beehive 991 Chorley New Road Lostock Bolton BL6 4BA 01204 692 104
