“Good All-Rounder”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Well recommended local pub/hotel a mile outside Ormskirk town centre on the A577.

Fantastic selection of real ales ever changing sourced from local breweries.

Outstanding home cooked food (definitely NOT your pubco chicken ding)- the Braising Steak is to die for-superb.

Friendly staff with an ecclectic variety of regulars!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Had battered fish, chips and mushy peas. Great fish and peas, chips bland and slightly underdone, but great value at £5.99. A good pint of Tetleys bitter also. All in all a very enjoyable experience. Pub itself is a little tatty and old fashioned, but personally I quite like it that way.

Hubby and I go to this pub often - best pub grub in Lancashire. Try their fish, chips and mushy peas! Mum used to love their braising steak! Staff are really friendly and go out of their way to meet your needs.

Really loved our stay. The locals are so friendly, we felt like we knew them all our lives. Beautiful place to stay. Kirsty, behind the bar is lovely as are the locals, Alastair, Brian and shack but to name but a few and Simon the proprietor is really funny and welcoming. Will be back again next year.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2006

If you're in the Wigan, Southport, Liverpool area, this place has much to recommend it. Small (only 5 rooms). Clean, well decorated rooms with new furniture and comfortable beds and at £30.00 B&B (£50.00 for 2) a bargain.

Breakfast is generous (3 rashers of bacon, two sausages, egg, beans, tomato, fried bread, toast and REAL COFFEE. Food is afternoons only, but Simon will offer food in the evenings to resudents (prices very good 5oz Steak £3.99). Food is typical pub grub, but good quality , cheap and plentiful (try the Thursday Steak Pie).

A well stocked bar (Tetleys Mild & Bitter plus 2 rotating guests) and there's two 'smooth' beers and a selection of lagers for the terminally tasteless.

Simon and Mandy (whatever you do don't call her Amanda, it's painful) are new in the pub, but trying really hard to make a go of it and succeeding. It's also a thriving local, with one of the friendliest crowds I've ever met (I was talking to the locals like old friends inside 5 minutes).

The only downside is the television in the rooms, the picture quality is awful, and the range of channels limited to the 5 terrestrials.

However, with all that good beer, you'll not be spending much time in the bedrooms.

  • Liked — The friendliness
