Weekend 7th May
This weekend our ales are still staying local but this time we are serving a fine selection from the fabulous Coach House Brewing Company. It’s only 12.5 miles as the crow flies to the brewery smack on the banks of the Mersey in Warrington. Our ales this week are:-
- Cheshire Oak ABV 4.1%. A dark oak coloured bitter, full bodied and smooth on the palate with a malty aroma.
- Farriers Best Bitter ABV 3.9%. A golden amber coloured beer, slightly sweet aroma but the rich Target hop flavours develop to a dry finish.
- Cheshire Gold ABV 4.1%. Golden coloured with a fresh citrus hop aroma creating a pine lemon crisp finish.
- Postlethwaites ABV 4.6%. Pale amber ale, dry and fruity, dry hopped in the traditional manner which gives it a fine hop aroma.
And just to help it all go down we have free live incidental music each day.

Providing a regular fix for jazz guitar enthusiasts in the North West
It’s an open-mic night, with all-comers welcome to turn up with a guitar* and take the stage before an appreciative audience of like-minded fans.
The evening starts promptly at eight, and runs on to a reluctant close around 11:00pm. Organised by a committee of dedicated jazz fans, these evenings can be unpredictable but they are always inspirational, with memorable performances from many musicians prominent on the North West jazz scene, as well as from highly-encouraged amateur players.
The atmosphere is warm and friendly so, if you are a jazz guitar aficionado, or you just love to listen, or you are just starting your journey with jazz guitar, Beaufort Jazz at the Junction is where you belong, on the first Monday of every month.
* Other instruments are very welcome too, it’s just that most of us are guitar nuts.
BlueGrass - currently suspended
Every Wednesday evening Nashville comes to Rainford, from 9pm onwards, downstairs.
A group of Junction regulars get together for a finger-picking toe-tapping banjo jam session.
Lots of old-time favourites in a true country style. Come and be amazed by the finger picking.
Fill your electric vehicle with a barrel full of power
The “EV Junction Sunday” takes place at The Junction car park from 1pm on every last Sunday of the month. EV owners will show off their rides and educate ICE (internal combustion engine) owners on the positive virtues of EVs.
The Junction pub in Rainford is the first public house in Merseyside and Lancashire to provide free electric vehicle (EV) charge points for customers to use. The two chargers have been tastefully incorporated into 200 litre whiskey barrels located at the rear of the Junction pub.
