user reviews of the Sandgrounder, Southport

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

Very noisy with both boxing & football on when we visited, smoking area is a cordoned off section of Lord Street but we consumed our beer [peerless Galaxian-which was an ok pint] out there, did not venture back inside.

The Sandgrounder was the third of five pubs I was trying in the Southport area. The Sparrowhawk in Formby and the Barrel House in Birkdale are not listed on here. I'll request for them to be added. The Sandgrounder itself was the worst of these first three pubs. The ale range was decent - Neptune Brown Ale, Southport Sandgrounder & Peerless Red Nelson. But the bar itself feels more like a sports bar than a pub with a big open-plan room dominated by numerous TV screens showing different sports. It was busy and quite loud. CAMRA members are offered 30p off per pint. But there are no discounts for half pints. A bit too mainstream for my liking with no character whatsoever.

I only had time for a quick tick in Southport so I choose the centrally located Sandgrounder on Lord Street. It’s Saturday at 12.45pm and it's busy with most of the punters being male & watching the 2 football games on the many televisions around the pub.

Feels like a ‘spoons but it’s not and has been open since 2012 and appears in the 2015 GBG. 4 hand pumps with 4 cask ales, I went for a pint of Problem Child Brewing’s Scallywag @ 3.7%. Not a great pint (kept fine) just slightly weak but decent value at £2.90 a pint.

2 pool tables at the back of the pub and a rake of fruit machines. I assume this pub gets packed due to it’s location close to the town and near the sea front.

Not a bad pub and probably worth a 2nd visit on my return to Southport.
