Prairie Schooner Taphouse
|Address:||33 Flixton Road, |
Only a few doors down from Urmston train station, a bigger than your average ‘Micropub’ which was formerly a shop selling golfing tackle. The Micropub is named after the wagons covered in sailcloth which crossed the American West in pioneer days. There are cask ale and bottled beers all from independent British, Continental and American breweries. Cider lovers are not forgotten, with bottled ciders from the likes of Dunkerton’s. Bottles can be taken away for consumption off the premises.
Oh yum, they had a dark cider which I have not found anywhere else, it was heaven. We facebooked ahead and one of the partners answered all our questions. We observed just as many if not more people came in to buy the bottled beers and this helped us decide it was a feature we wanted to do. We observed how they had the cask’s on tap, its bigger than normal but then there is more room for more people.
