Good lunchtime venue

Family lunch for 7 in a nice setting just up the hill from West Kirby. Plenty of helpful staff, good service and ample choice from a decent menu. Fresh Cod, a Chips and peas £12 for two! Popular with families this is a good place for a budget conscious lunch. In the summer the pub benefits... read more

It's just a pub with usually good pub grub at a reasonable price , but not tonight , cold rock hard burgers , congealed cheese , fishy smelling salad , under cooked garlic bread and cheese , how can you get these so wrong . A manageress with the wrong attitude means we will be finding elsewhere for our pub... More

We booked a table for 14 people, and visited the pub to arrange the layout in advance. When we got there, our seating had been arbitrarily altered ; the staff's attitude was "Tough". We were not the only group who had their table arrangements altered..... The service was abysmal ; none of the staff, including the kitchen staff, had a... More

This pub is close to my home so I used it to meet a person over lunch and discuss a common interest. I don't eat potatoes so I ordered a rump steak with salad rather than chips. It arrived in good time and the steak was cooked rare as I requested. The salad was very large and quite fresh although... More

Don't go if you're a vegetarian - they don't seem to know what one is! Only 2 hot meal options on the menu - when I commented on this the response was "there's fish and chips!" (Yes really!) If you make a booking and they're busy, expect to be told that you will have to wait an hour for food.... More

Booked lunch for 1.30pm-waited over 15 mins to have our drinks order taken-went to the bar,to order drinks and food-good job I did,as the overworked staff,didnt come near us,till the food was brought out. Vegetables very undercooked,and the beef was very fatty-will think twice,brfore returning!!

Vegetables, the broccoli was so bolied out there was nothing left... More

Went as a family with friends, main Sunday roast is what you expect from a chain, however take a meal from the menu and you get a better quality meal. Staff very helpful and friendly. Just make sure if you go you book in advance as it's pretty popular and busy.
