“Try here for a stopover”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

We were looking for somewhere to stay on our way home from the south, picked the Jug and Bottle randomly and we were not disappointed. The place has had a recent makeover and have made a decent job of it. The bedroom although quite small was more than adequate and the bathroom is very nicely done. We dined in the restaurant and the food was very good, breakfast was very well presented with very good choices. All in a good place to stop with very pleasant staff.

We visited the restaurant on Thursday and had a lovely time! We booked in advance, newly refurbished, the restaurant looks very tasteful and classic! Waiter very pleasant, attentive and knowledgable as was the waitress at the end of the meal who attentively topped up our glasses. Food was gorgeous - I has the lamb and it was beautifully cooked. Very pleasant evening out!

I would definitely recommend it, really nice cosy atmosphere. We will be back! Would be lovely romantic setting for couples. We went in a group which was also nice.

We selected the Jug and Bottle because of the name and price. We were not disappointed! Had a great stay and fabulous meals while at the Jug and Bottle in Heswall. Staff of Steve, Andy, George, Grace and the breakfast guy whom I didn't catch his name from Spain were fabulous! They help us with our travel plans, made us feel special. Newly remodeled and we'll definitely stay again when traveling in the Liverpool area. Thanks Jug and Bottle!!!

We have just returned from a two night stay at The Jug and Bottle as we had a family wedding in Heswall and can honestly say it was like being on holiday. Rooms were really clean and modern with everything you could want - not too fussy but lovely details. Restaurant and breakfast was like a boutique hotel and lovely Tony could not have been more professional and attentive - also very kind with the children, helping them with their menu choices. Breakfast was perfect with a small selection of everything that was topped up continually - very fresh. All the staff could not have been more helpful, from the lovely girls on the bar to Steve and the chefs.
The refurb is a really high spec for an inn, sorry I didn't take photos. This is a pub with rooms above which is reflected in the price - not a hotel - but if you are looking for a short stay with great views, this is the place. Looking forward to booking again - would be a crime to stay in a TravelLodge if you are anywhere near Heswall. Thanks Steve and Team.

Room Tip: Room 7 is directly over the bar so was a bit noisy in the evening - didn't bother us, but rooms...

Room was spot on and breakfast was excellent. Steve and the staff all very welcoming. We arrived in the middle of the renovations and are sure when they are all done the place will look fab. Even though things were being painted and moved around, that didn't put us off and if we are ever back in this part of the world then we will definitely be coming back to check out how it all looks when it is finished! Great place to stay at a superb price.

Booked for four night stay and arrived at 19.00 looking forward to the stay as so many good reports. Satnav took me to the avenue and at the end there was an oldish large house with some tables outside being the only indication of its present use as a hotel....not one sign on sight.

So feeling a lttle uneasy, I went from the car park around the side of the house and noted little activuty or sign of humans!! in the the front door and a smell of paint indicated that they were in the thoes of renovation!!

Very friendly guy said they were indeed underaking renovations and had beeb hit with delays but, as my wife was having an ankle operation the nexr da, all he ciuld offer by way of food was take away!!

I explained that no one had told me of the renovations and we agreed that, if I did come back within 3 hours, he waould accept we had found an alternative and would cancel the reservation made through Bookking.com where no funds had been taken from my account!

Maybe next time.....
