The pubs in Sale West and Ashton on Mersey are once again accessible by Public Transport in the evening. From the 8th April the 245 Altrincham - Sale - Stretford - Flixton - Davyhulme - intu Trafford Centre service has been re-routed to run via Ashton on Mersey meaning that the following real ale pubs are now easily accessible by public transport.

On Mondays to Saturday there is a 30 minute service through the day and early evenings, then every hour with last bus back to Altrincham departing from Ashton on Mersey at 11:15, and in the reverse direction towards the Trafford Centre being slightly earlier at  22:51 but still late enough for an enjoyable drink and meal.

Barry, the Landord of the Belgium Bar has contacted Trafford & Hulme Camra to say that Real Ale is now on offer again and there should be two handpumps operating from this week. If this is successfull he has promised to add more. In addition the range of UK "Craft" beers has been expanded.

He has also informed us that a discount will be available to CAMRA members.

Whilst out on the Brooklands Crawl, one of the cohort was approached by a man who asked "Are you the beer lady'?
 
His name is Dave Biss and he is taking over the Robinsons House, The Railway in Sale on 23rd March.  His last position was Steward of the United Services Club in Sale and before that he worked at the Old Market Tavern in Altrincham.  He has been in the trade for 10 years now.
 
Robinsons have told him that the pub has had issues over the past couple of years so he has to build the trade back up.  Indeed, when he went to view it before he took it on there was no cask ale available as no one had ordered any.
 
He is up for the challenge and is looking forward to welcoming CAMRA members.
 
Trafford wish him well in this new venture and hope that he will soon have some Cask Ale conditioned for use to enjoy!
