Elephant & Castle

Chorley, PR6 9NH

Please leave your details and our team will be in touch. * fields are required


The Elephant & Castle is located on the main road from Chorley to Bolton just outside the small town of Adlington. The area is well populated with both private and social housing and a number of retail shops within ¼ mile from the pub. The local community is mixed with white collar and blue collar workers. Bolton lies 10 miles from Adlington with Chorley being the next largest town, only 3 and a half miles away.

Pub Layout

The open plan trading areas need a general upgrade and is a little tired. Externally the signage needs upgrading along with a lighting scheme. The small garden area is secure and is a big attraction in the summer months.  On entering through the main door, you are faced with the bar servery with plenty of seating area surrounding this.  To the right side of the pub is a pool table and darts okke and to the right is the ladies and gents toilets.  The catering kitchen is located to the right of the pub and is easy accessible from the pub.  The car park is to the rear and can cater for up to 12 cars.

The pub has a traditional feel with a central bar servery with a zoned games area with both darts and a pool table. The other trade area has a coal fire and a number of large screen TVs showing live sports and racing channels. There is a value for money food offer in place which is served from a good sized, well equipped commercial kitchen. The pub also benefits from many pub teams who use the pub as a base. The drinks sales is thriving and the entertainment provided throughout the month contributes to the overall income.
