Lovely local pub, staff lovely and the outside area is the best I've ever been to. However it is very dated and in need of a big refurb. The bar area smells a little bit of the toilets, not sure how, but it does at times. Also a little cramped in places. The food is beautiful and the outside area... More

Firstly, can't believe that this place is the Aston Villa (20th) of places to eat in Widnes. Some of the places ranked above I have been to and could not hold a candle to this place in terms of food and service. The only negative was that one of the main menu meals was not available, which we were informed... More

Got my order wrong so it was on a downhill slope from the start.. Food was average at best and the place was boiling.. Felt like stripping off but my love handles won't allow that kind of behaviour.. Slightly over priced for what it is.. Probably won't return..

This pub in the heart of the village is great for beer and food. Welcoming staff the lounge, bar and eating areas are very accommodating. There is a bird and animal cage for the children. At the rear of the pub is a open area for shows and outside eating when the weather permits. Plus every night there are quizzes... More
