With the news that Lancashire entered into Tier 3 on Saturday 17th October, we have had to close down our on premises business in line with Government Advice.  Once this has been relaxed we will reopen for business.

We are however continuing to serve up great beer and cider for takeaway, both on draught and in bottles/cans.  All our draught products are available in 2 pint cartons or 3 litre bag in boxes.  For a full listing of what is available please see What’s on the Bar.  You can also purchase from Beer Haul online through our E-Shop, please see Beer Haul Bottle Shop  Deliveries are available Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Please place orders through the website or via email to by 3pm to ensure delivery that day.

The Thirsty Duck

The Thirsty Duck is a new congenial bar located in the lovely surroundings of Burscough Wharf, and along the towpath of the Leeds Liverpool Canal. We offer a fantastic range of UK and European independent beers and ciders. We also have a high quality wine offering, and an interesting selection of gins and single malt whiskies. We will have regular live entertainment, and events throughout the year, please see events for upcoming events.

We also have our own Beer Bottle Shop, Beer Haul, located across the Wharf. Here you will find a huge range of interesting beers from independent breweries, with something to suit everybody’s palate. Our staff are keen to help point you in the right direction, but you can also find out more information about everything we have available here on our website.

Some birds avoid water, the duck searches for it.
