Cask Marque has awarded Olde England a perfect 100 out of 100 points on each of its visits to the pub and the Olde England listed as a Cask Marque registered pub "guaranteed a great pint of cask ale".
The Olde England Real Ale pub is a true free house in the middle of St.Helens town centre on the corner of College Street and Corporation Street on the Landings roundabout.
The Olde England serves hand pulled real ales many sourced from local micro brewery’s. They also serve an extensive range of flavoured vodka, whisky and Lyme Bay fruit wines.
Olde England Pub was originally established in 1854 and was then a church hostlery know then as The Lamb Of God "..The Lamb" which was then a 3 bedroomed hotel.
It was purchased from Punch Taverns in 2009 by licensee Julia Carmichael and saved from becoming a solicitors office. Renamed to "Olde England" to reflect that it is a traditional English Pub selling English Real ales, wines and food.
The Olde England has recently redecorated, with a gothic them, both to emphasise it’s Victorian roots and also because it now hosts rock nights on Saturday nights, with a special DJ hosted Rock night every second Saturday.
Olde England also has a beer garden which is an absolute sun trap in good weather, being walled in there is little wind, so you just feel the heat from the sun and relax. In the summer, Olde England has barbeques in the beer garden.
Best Real ales and it’s own Brewery
Olde England offer 8 real ales, from 8 hand pulls, Belgian Pilsner lager on draught and a 2 draught ciders as well as a range of bottled ciders and bottled special ales. They only stock real local ales from the likes of Liverpool Organic, Southport brewery and Cambrinus of Knowsley and are pleased with our Locale award from CAMRA.
Tea, coffee or a large choice of soft drinks are also available if you are driving or otherwise abstaining.
As well as selling the best real ale from breweries all over the North West of England, Olde England also has it’s very own Microbrewery called "Evening Star Brewery" (Click here for more info) where Julia brews her own fantastic real ales. Olde England was asked to provide some of it's real ale for the Liverpool beer festival for 2013, but the beer is so popular that Julia had to decline as it sells so fast. Olde England is one of only two Brew pubs in the North West and Julia Carmichael is one of a very small number of female brewers in England.
Inside Olde England you will find a very friendly and warm welcome. Some of the regular customers have been coming in for 50 years and have some great tales to tell, but Olde England are very pleased to welcome new faces too.
Olde England have a good pool table, a brand new internet updated Jukebox with a huge choice music, dominos, darts, board games, magazines, books and weekend news papers are also available in the traditional bar area and piped back ground music in the comfortable lounge.

In Winter, when it’s cold outside, visit the Olde England and keep warm and cosy as you drink your pint next to their new Log Burning Fire.
In the summer, there is the beer garden, a perfect sun trap with walls on all sides to stop any wind. The beer garden is newly created and still being decorated, but Julia has already started with a number of plants and is presently planning out a Railway station theme for the garden.
The new micro brewery is also visible, through the window, as you enter the beer garden.
