|Staff morale and ale/food quality seem to be on the slide since the arrival of a new manageress from Liverpool. The usual suspects - Greene King IPA and Ruddles seem to be available but other more interesting brews are either "Available Soon" or not worth drinking. Made the mistake of ordering a "Manager's Special" turkey dinner which was neither special and would make me think twice before I offered it to the manager's cat. The John Masefield in nearby New Ferry shines like a beacon of excellence in comparison to this soulless barn.|

|Was in here yesterday morning, as we waited for Gallaghers to open. It was my second visit and I can't say it has improved greatly. It's a fairly standard Wetherspoons with a range of mainly Christmas Ales - Batemans Rosey Nosey, Mauldons Bah Humbug, Greene King IPA & Abbot, Phoenix Black Bee, Robinsons Mr Scrooge, Caledonian Santa's Little Helper & Peerless In the Balance. Cider was Westons Old Rosie. However, be careful when ordering Old Rosie as you may well end up with Rosey Nosey which was practically undrinkable. We also had the misfortune to try a breakfast. It's fairly difficult to go wrong with a full English breakfast, but this place certainly managed it!|

|Five ales available last night but they were all 'dark' beers, not to my liking.|
Less than half full but a good range of ages drinking and eating. Certainly better than the other Wetherspoons, the John Laird, not far away.

|Used this place for years and at one time they served the best pint of Cains in town but like always with Wetherspoons they soon took that off! They canít seem to leave things alone sometimes.|
Staff are usually friendly but very often not enough of them; Friday lunches, 2 staff serving 10 or 12 punter!
Lately the range of beers has been poor. The other week 8 handpulls but only 3 beers on. Not good enough frankly and sometimes I just turn around and walk out.
With just a bit more care this place could be improved.
