“Excellent & friendly establishment (much more than just a pub)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

We moved to the area last August. The clock face is first pub we came into and have never felt more welcome anywhere else. The staff are all very friendly with never a bad word spoken to anyone, they will all go out of their way to help anyone! As we were new to the area and nervous about new location etc we couldnt have asked for anywhere nicer to have walked into. We have found the atmosphere v sociable, definetly not 'clicky' . All of the staff are superb and we have now become regulars, purely down to the respect and courtesy shown to us from day one to present.
I personally disregard reviews on here as always found that some people will moan about anything, which then deters other potential customers.
Come and experience it for yourself, you won't be disappointed.

“Home cooked food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

I have been to this restsurant a number of times and have never been disappointed! food has always been the best along with the home cooked chips! They also have a specials board! you can sit where you want whether it's uprstairs in the restaurant part, down stairs in the pub area or even in the big beer garden n they will bring everything out to you!

highly recommended, if you want a pub meal which is home cooked and fully satisfying then this is the place to go!

“Good fresh food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Eaten here many times and never been disappointed. The braised steak is superb. There are two separate dining areas and also an outdoor area for use in warmer weather. Staff and quality of food are very good. Monday to Friday you can get two main meals for only £12

“Hidden Gem In St Helens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

We have eaten at the Clock Face on many occasions and have recommended it to many friends. The food and staff are excellent. The food is good quality, home made and the portion sizes are very good. Some meals are available on a 2 for £12 menu which is great value. The children's menu has a good choice and is very reasonably priced with free ice cream. There is a huge garden at the rear with an excellent play area. We have tried other pubs serving food in the St Helens, Widnes and Warrington area but The Clock Face really is excellent.

“Lovely home cooked food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012 via mobile

We visited on 26.07.2012, the food was lovely traditional and reasonably priced, some parts of the menu offer a 2 main meals for £12. I was pleased to find that the ingredients did not appear to be of poor cheap quality that is served in a pub close by, I would recommend the Clock Face but don't go late as food is not served from 7.30pm
