After a quite disappointing evening at another Wirral pub on Friday evening this was a much improved experience. We were met with a warm welcome. They were due to be busy, with tables booked, but told us how long we had to eat before they needed the table back which was absolutely fine with us. The waitress was excellent. She... More

First time visit and have to stay, I'll be back. Management and staff are most friendly and most attentive. Food is delicious and presented well. Although I dined on my own seeing other's dishes arriving gave me a good overview of the menu. I chose the ribs in a barbeque sauce, Have to say it was an inspired choice, clearly... More

Not a huge selection but well cooked to order so the food may takes a while to arrive but tastes better for it. We are biased as this is our local so we go quite often. Good wine and real ale selection, and friendly staff. Good for walkers and welcomes dogs too.

Came here last min as the red fox was full, what a disappointment. Roast dinner was a joke, I paid £7.50 for vegetarian option but that was just for 1 cold roast potato, uncooked veg, 3 horrible boiled potatoes and a Yorkshire pud. My son got a kids version with 1 slice of fatty beef. My sister got uncooked sliced... More

Good welcome and very helpful staff. Always excellent beer and Sunday roasts are very good. The half chickens were massive and well cooked. All in all good value and not too crowded for a Sunday.

I opted for ham,egg and hand cut chips and when the meals arrived we were not at all disappointed.The haddock was coated in... More

We called in for our evening meal on a Friday, the pub was very busy but the service was quick and the staff very pleasant. The food was excellent with a good choice and there was a decent selection of real ales. A typical village pub.

Service was excellent and the pub has a good locals feel to it. Fish and home made chips lovely. Good portion and not at all greasy. Others had the ribs which were really... More

This is the second time I have visited this pub for food and it won't be the last. I took my niece for lunch a few weeks ago, the only reason being, as she is on a gluten free diet it seemed to be the only place that listed a gluten free menu. Then I took some visitors from Canada... More
