Flixton Conservative Club have launched a monthly series of "Brewery Awareness Evenings" which see one brewery being showcased across the 5 handpumps which have been installed in the club's Abbotsfield Suite. Bolton's Bank Top, Accrington's Big Clock & Bury's Brightside brewery have already featured at the club which is on Chassen Road between Urmston & Flixton centres.

Held on the last Friday of every month, non-members are encouraged to come along and try the beers and see what the club has to offer.
Entrance is £2 including a pie & pea supper. Pints are priced at £2.50.

On 27th March the featured brewery will be Lancaster Brewery and on 24th April the beers will be from Elland - hopefully including including the new Champion Winter Beer of Britain - 1872 Porter.

The club is also putting together details of their 3rd Beer & Cider Festival which will again be held over the Easter weekend.

Urmston's Britannia has gone through several incarnations in recent years, mainly operating as a late night venue under names such as Juicy, TFI Mambos and most recently The Ivory.

Now new tenant Matt Price has reverted the Flixton Road pub to its former name of The Britannia and set about returning it to the traditional pub model, including immediately introducing real ale.

The pub relaunched under it's old name on 31st Janaury and is serving freshly made, locally sourced food with a main gourmet burger menu and a separate lunchtime menu served from 12-4 Monday to Friday.

The permanent cask ale is Sharp's Doom bar with a second guest ale on rotation.

All sports are shown live in HD across 5 TVs and a large screen. There is live entertainment every Saturday night, and DJ/karaoke on a Sunday night.
