Traditional friendly excellent real ale pub. Best in Southport by some way in my view.

Good traditional pub, pleasant staff, friendly customers and well kept ales, the Westwood 'Cheshire Cat' & Southport Brewery 'British Gold' were both nice.

A really great pub in a quiet area just off the main street. A proper traditional pub with, 3 separate rooms, a tiled floor, dark stained wooden panelling everywhere, lights on mini-chandeliers, a bar with glass panels above head height (giving the impression you are being served through a hatch. Walls are decorated with such things as cigarette cards, brasses and period advertising.

And to top it all off there is a great range of beers as well. I thing I counted 11 handpumps – including Theakstons Old Peculier. I had Palmers Copper ale which was very nice. I was also offered a set of third tasters if I couldn’t make up my mind.

I didn’t eat, but the menu looked very interesting with things like pies, jacket potatoes and sandwiches at very reasonable prices. I will definitely eat there next time.

8/10 – surely the best pub in town !

Good pub which seems to offer well served beer, and the tasters given by staff was a nice touch. Worth a visit.

Super pub - a proper pub with bar and lounge ;wood panelling and a very nice feel to it. Interesting name and attractive frontage. Sunday afternoon - not packed but quite a few drinker in the bar and very friendy and helpful staff - help yourself to the cheese and biscuits I was told! It appears to be tied to S&N (Heinekin range of beers in the main) but I enjoyed a half of the local Southport Mild which was very good as was the March Hare from Pheonix. I could have easily stayed longer here as it is just the kind of pub I like. (Just off the top end of Lord Street near the roundabout and a fair walk from the station- but worth the effort).
