Great place for drinking cask ales but not if you just want a quiet drink cos quiet it aint !!The variety of beers is second to none and is highly recommended for people who like proper pubs.

First visit with friends who live in Huyton. We saw the place advertised and one of our friends remembers it from a few years back, just very happy that we stopped for a couple and 100% will go back for an afternoon with more friends....More

This place is really friendly, has a huge selection of gin and beer drinks. They don’t do food but it has a ‘real pub’ feel to it. Great selection of drinks and seated area outside.

What a fabulous place. 18 or so real ales, friendly staff, lovely atmosphere, Cask Marque and CAMRA discount. Worth finding.

Lovely trad pub with outstanding selection and quality of beers and ciders, and very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff. CAMRA members discount. Despite being regulars in one of the other 3 finalists for POTY, we can’t deny that they are deserved winners.
