Paid another visit recently - thought it was time I gave it another chance.

Three banks of 5 pumps await the discerning customer, two of which offer real ales and the other offers ciders. One of the ales was off but all the other pumps were in use.

I had a pint of Empire IPA - Heritage Ales (Spitting Feathers Brewery) at 5.2% and the usual bargain basement Wetherspoon price tag.

I still stand by my earlier comment about the table layout in the main bar area, but as you go further towards the back of the pub there is more of a mix of seating and booths that are less institutional.

Beer was great, service was friendly, and if you're a cider drinker this must be worth a visit.

The Glass House was my second Wetherspoons in St Helens on Sunday morning. I'd previously been to the Running Horses nearby and is not listed on here. The Glass House was the better of the two. It's the usual open-plan pub with a lower level that seemed to be more popular with those eating breakfasts. Service was prompt. Ales were Bath Ales Festivity, Banks's Driftwood Pale Ale, Burton Bridge Burton XL Bitter, Weetwood Oast House, Sharps Doom Bar, Ruddles Best, The Glass House Big Jugs, Greene King Abbot & Heritage Empire IPA. Ciders were Westons Old Rosie & Mulled Cider & Gwynt y Ddraig Black Dragon. They also had Sandford Orchards Pear Shaped.

Visited late afternoon and it was reasonably busy though not packed. Service was efficient and there was a fair variety of real ales on offer. I had a pint of the "World's Biggest Liar" by Jennings Brewery. It was nice enough but not outstanding. On sitting down I noticed that the tables were all laid out as if it was a school - all in straight lines and I suddenly felt as if I was in a classroom. Typical Wetherspoons mix of clientele in when I visited. Décor is plain and functional in this establishment.

For a more sophisticated Wetherspoons experience I would recommend The Running Horses, also in St Helens, a short walk away from this place. They had a great selection of real ales too, and it just seemed a classier more welcoming establishment.

average spoons, quite busy as it was mid-week mid-day. the abbot was ok but it looked a bit small for a spoons and sat near the front of the pub. as i was leaving notice a small outside area at the back of the pub. found the glasshouse ok and would used again if in st helens
