user reviews of the Frank Hornby, Maghull

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

I believe the Frank Hornby was the runner up in Merseyside CAMRA's recent pub of the year competition. This seemed surprising to me, as it's another Wetherspoons. But I agree with them. This is certainly one of the best Wetherspoons I have been to. Well above average. The pub is situated outside of the main shopping area in Maghull on a suburban street, I assume this was always a pub rather than a shop/cinema/theatre conversion as many normally are. The interior was different to the standard 'spoons layout and with plenty of windows, it is bright and cosy. Service was surprisingly efficient and the ale range was good - Phoenix Wobbly Bob & Double Gold, Red Star Formby IPA & Weissbier, Weetwood Old Dog & Ambush, Lytham Royal, Brightside Identity Crisis & Polaris & Banks's Barley Brown's Tumble Off Pale Ale. Real cider is not promoted. But I asked and found they had Old Rosie. The pub was fairly busy with people enjoying late breakfasts or early lunches. But staff were fairly efficient clearing tables of detritus, which is often a bug bear of mine in Wetherspoons. Model trains and other Frank Hornby items decorate some of the walls. It's not very often I'd give a Wetherspoons an 8/10. But this is well deserved.
