Shoplifters selling stuff, sleezy girls all over the place, horrible Pervy old men, TVs older than my nan, a very rude girl who appeared to either manage, or think she managed the venue drunk and just being a general arse, typical red head.

The toilets were.. well there was somewhere to poo, although probably more sanitary to dig a hole.

Pints were good, good price, nice and refreshing on such a hot day.

obviously the cheaper ale attracts the world's tramps.

Good crisp selection.

Sticky tables.

All in all, if it was the end of the world, and the last pub standing was the Mackenzie, I guess I'd stay at home and have a brew.

And not get offered perfume from the thieving little scrotes of Birkenhead

The manageress looking red head however purchased some, she seemed very excited by the stolen goods.

I digress, if management took to keeping the idiots out, of the venue and spoke to the stuck up little staff member and asked her to treat people with an ounce of respect or dignity, I'm sure this bar would flourish into one of Birkenhead finest establishments. Tatty hoe

Interesting interpretation of service
Dec 2018 • Solo
Nipped in on New Years Eve after shopping for a quick drink with my Mother.Asked for two white wines, choosing a sauvignon blanc(75 cl bottle).Fine price.On sitting down,my Mother commented that the wine had an unsavoury smell.I confirmed this and took one small sip.It was revolting.Back to the bar.After being blanked at the bar,in favour of three other people who arrived after me.I asked did they have any other wine,with my two glasses in tow.I expressed that we could not drink this.When asked why,I replied that it smelled of cat pee.The reply."You picked it!"I was offered a look at alternative wines to those brought back,asking for two small bottles of piniot grigio,the reply from the staff member was"I'll have to charge you for that"I left without confrontation. If this was a beer tasting of a gooses claptrap,what is the difference to be offered an alternative if not satisfied with the transaction. Very poor interaction and another lost customer,I expect.

Worst bar staff ever
Oct 2018 • Couples
I've been in this bar a few times and enjoyed it but won't be going back again.

I spent 10 minutes waiting for the one member of bar staff who was behind the bar to stop dancing and taking selfies with the regulars and decide to do her job. After serving someone else she went into the back room and didn't re-appear.

I was going to leave at that point, and I wish I had. I finally got served by another member of bar staff who had appeared, only for her to pour one drink and put in on the bar and then bring the other drink over and bang it into the first drink spilling it all over me and all over the floor. Not appearing to be that bothered, she said "Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't see it, do you need a cloth?" When I pointed out that she had put the first glass there a few seconds earlier, that I'd been waiting about 15 minutes and that I was now soaked, she seemed to take exception and responded, "I've said sorry, what else do you want to me do?"

The attitude was the final straw, left and went down to Argyle Street/Market Street where my boyfriend and I had a really good night.

Never, ever again!

I visited this pub today while I waited for a friend and although we ended up rescheduling our meet I found the atmosphere inside to be very relaxing.

The game was on and I was already two pints of Amstel in so I struck up a conversation with one of the other guys in there, contrary to the previous review I found myself in excellent company!

The bar staff and regulars were very polite and I would advise anyone to pop in and see for themselves! :)

(Also they have some serious crisp game.

I'll have to pop back in at some point just for a couple of packs!)

Stunning

I spent an evening preparing for a visit to this world renowned pub. Gucci belt, Prada sweater, Primark underpants.

Walked in and first thing that struck me was a fist, joking, the first thing I spotted was a guy in a suit jacket, but shellsuit pants and dress shoes, obviously my fashion sense is not up to date at all.

Ordered a pint, was given a cool refreshing glass of peruvian mountain goat piss.

Best bar ever, later in the night the karaoke guy turned up then got knocked out, the police came and we all went home.
