user reviews of the Red Fox, Wirral

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

The Red Fox was my first stop on a Merseyside crawl late on a Saturday lunchtime. It's quite an impressive building from the outside and is set in extensive grounds with a large car park at the front and to the side. It's certainly not your typical pub. I was expecting a fairly pretentious place. But I do quite like Brunning & Price pubs and this was no exception. The interior is every bit as nice as the exterior, with drinkers and diners both catered for. Prices are steep. In fact, I can get cheaper pints in London. But the range was fairly decent. Ales were Facer's Sunlight Blonde & Scrum Dragon, Phoenix Brunning & Price Original, Pennine Hair of the Dog, Coach House Strawberry Blonde, Rudgate Ruby Mild & Elland 1872 Porter. Ciders were Abrahall's Lily The Pink, Slack Alice, Cuckoo Penny, Cracklin' Rosie Perry & Tutti Frutti Cherry & Pineapple, Rosie's Triple D, Black Bart & Wicked Wasp, Gwynt y Ddraig Fiery Fox, Farmer Jim's Strawberry Moon, Weston's Old Rosie & Orchard Pig Navel Gazer. I was not surprised to see that it has been named CAMRA's Cider Pub of the Year for the Wirral. Well worth visiting.

Went here this week for lunch. A very spacious and well appointed pub/restaurant set in a rural area. The place was crowded with well-heeled pensioners and 'ladies who lunch'. Upmarket and pricey. My Brimstage Brewery 'Rhode Island Red' was £3:70 which is disappointing as the brewery is only a mile away! Seven real ale/cider pumps were available. Well worth a visit if you are feeling flush.

Excellent beer and very good food. Don't go if you're expecting Wetherspoons prices. It ain't cheap but it's worth it. Is the recipient of Wirral CAMRA's Summer Pub-of-the-Season, 2015. Beer festival 20-23 August.

This large, old, sandstone building has been a restaurant and night club for all of my life - until a few months ago when the Brunning & Price Group bought it and turned it into a gastro-pub. They have apparently moth-balled the downstairs night club and groundfloor function suite for the time being.
Given its rural position there isn't going to be much passing trade, i.e. you've got to be planning to go there by car.
I hope it is successful, only time will tell.
