Malthouse FarmMoss Lane, Whittle-le-Woods, Chorley, Lancashire, PR6 8AB
This delightful country pub has wooden beams, open fires, and flagstone floors that give it a wonderfully inviting feel. It’s a peaceful setting surrounded by mature trees and greenery right next to the picturesque Leeds Liverpool canal. On a sunny day this is the perfect place to enjoy a drink.
Malthouse Farm played a vital part in the village community in the 1800s. Supplying valuable malt to landlords and estate owners for the brewing of beer meant the area had enough ale to drink, which in many cases was safer than water.
It also provided much needed employment for farm hands who tended the land in the summer but needed work in the winter months, which was the best time to soak and swell the local malt. Malt houses needed a lot of ground surface area to spread out the malt as it developed, which is why the pub and adjoining buildings are such long, thin and attractive buildings.

On the menu, you’ll find plenty of traditional pub favourites, all freshly prepared. There’s a specials board that changes regularly and a delicious Sunday roast with all the trimmings. Behind the bar there’s an incredible selection of real ales, quality wine, spirits and soft drinks.
