Welcome to the Prairie Schooner Taphouse, an independent bar and off-licence in Urmston. We’re named after the wagons covered in sailcloth which crossed the American West in pioneer days.
We specialise in real ale from local brewers on our four hand pumps as well as eight craft kegs. We also have a selection of real cider, fine wine, fizz, single malt whiskies and small-batch spirits sourced as much as possible from local independent producers.
We have a large selection of beer and cider in our fridges to take away, or crack one open for a relaxing tipple in our drinking parlour free from loud music and sports TV.
Find our calendar of events on Facebook for details about our weekly quizzes, tastings, live music nights, DJ sessions and Bring Your Own Vinyl.
