A rather snobby pretensions place set in an isolated, snobby, pretentious, semi-rural commuter area. A bit "local" and "inbred". Lots of local businessmen types in Range Rovers, "gentleman" farmer types. Actually a rather snotty restaurant, operating out of an old pub.

To their credit they haven't totally trashed the traditional interior of the pub. However the snobby, small minded clientele they attract don't value these things - so no doubt that'll be ripped out in time.

Avoid the beer festival in April. It's just full of teenagers drinking cans of lager they've brought in themselves. It's a rather featureless and inbred area around this pub, with lots of rich commuter businessmen types - so the "local" bored offspring of these people are rather spoiled, inbred and weird - which has a detrimental effect on the "beer festival".

Very expensive food but very good beer. Avoid the annual beer festival the place is overrun with small children, I can't imagine why anybody would think it is a good idea to take toddlers to a beer festival but there are more rugrats thatn beer varieties. It also gets way to busy nowdays..

A nice little setting , love the atmosphere, the food varies, some days its outstanding and others its just good.Onlty thing I would say is there are alot of dogs in the pub so if you have allergies beware. All in all a real find and my partner says the beer is good.

Went there by bus from Ormskirk. Dropped off at the door at noon which was when the pub opened. 6 very acceptable real ales on tap and a delectable cider from Pontypridd, South Wales which, at 6.5%, was definately one for the road. Food pretty good if slightly pricey but service efficient and friendly enough. Pub closes at 3 Monday to Thursday and, as the bus back to Ormskirk was due at 2.55 this suited us well.

Just a very poor experience!

Food was nothing special and a bit pricey. The beer was excellent. Service was pleasant. End of good news!

It had been a few years since our last visit to the Eagle and Child at Bispham Green near Parbold for Sunday Lunch, of which we had good memories.

The inn which is part of the Aincough Group/Bispham Geen Brewery looks as if it hasn't had a penny spent on the inside in years. Our table was in a small snug area just away from the main bar. The room was very small and lacked the atmosphere of the main inn. The decor was extremely tired and the benches that we were given to sit on would have looked more in place in a mechanics lunch room (no offence mechanics) as they were covered in large black stains that resembled oil and threadbare. The curtains were also quite disgusting. I am not exaggerating when I say that it just felt filthy! If all that wasn't bad enough it became very obvious during our lunch that this very small area of the inn was mainly reserved for the use of families with small children. Unlike a previous reviewer who enjoyed the inn because there were no children the reverse was true in our case. There was a constant stream of very noisy little children who were mainly under 5. At times the place was more like Macdonalds on a Saturday afternoon not that I am an expert! And if you're allergic it to dogs then forget it. They allow them in regardless of size!

Our disappointment was brought to the attention of the owners and whilst apologetic I really don't think they were that bothered. Possible sign of the times and the need to get business at any cost. The Bispham Green Brewery balance sheet does not make for exciting reading.

This place has seen better days. Give it a very wide berth.
