The Guzzlin Goose pub is not, in my opinion, one of Ashton's better-looking buildings, although it looks very smart after its recent re-paint, which has emphasised its simple design typical of a lot of 1960s architecture.
The pub was previously called the Happy Shepherd and was originally opened in 1861. It was re-built on the same site in the 1960s when the area between Katherine Street and Brook Street was being re-developed. For most of its life it had been a beerhouse (licensed to sell beers but not wines and spirits) and only received a full licence in 1966.
