Used to be a decent pub and well worth a visit, but called in for a mid-week pint for the first time in about four years and was disappointed.
You get the impression of being an outsider when entering, the beer wasnt up to scratch and most of all the smell..... Yes we know its one of the oldest inn's in the country, but the stench in there was a mixture of wet dog, straw and your grandads socks!!!

I love this place after a great day of walking in the area, in the winter they have the fire lit. Great place.

One of the oldest pubs in the UK dating from 1320 it is difficult to miss if you're driving on the main Liverpool-Southport road through Lydiate. A whitewashed, barn like building with a thatched roof it has always been a popular watering hole (well being 700 years old it must be doing something right!). You almost feel like you are entering someones house as you go through the tiny wooden door & into a small room with church like seats against the walls. Incidentally the bar is hidden on the left, although it is more of a serving hatch. 2 real ales, Black Sheep & guest (one from Hydes Brewery on my visit). If you are claustrophobic or like to be guaranteed a seat, then this is not the place for you. A small passageway to the right of the entrance will lead you to some more alcove rooms. Decor is rustic, whitewashed with low ceiling & black beams. There can't be many pubs like this so definitely worth a visit.

Slightly disappointed after visiting here - the interior is nicely olde worlde but the beer isn't really up to it. Only one available when I was there.

Wonderful journey back to gentler and more civilised times. Had Banks Bitter and presumably a guest, Everards Blonde which was very nice. Splendid interior listed in CAMRA National Inventory; the buildings and garden at the back need attention however. I went to Maghull station on Merseyrail and was guided by the friendly locals on the bus to this mecca, though the Liverpool to Southport bus 300 passes the door. Sadly I think the service finishes about 2000 so check when planning a trip.
