A beautiful setting, a pleasant pub inside although some of the character has been stripped out.
Went yesterday for lunch I ordered a bacon and avacado salad for 8.95 and a bowl of chips, my partner ordered gammon and chips.
After 20 mins it arrived, the salad looked like a dogs dinner all thrown together with no pride, and on tasting the avacado it was rank tasted off. My partner took it to the bar and the response was the avacado is frozen, WHAT! I could not believe it, they did offer to change it but I just felt safer with the chips. When my partner went to pay they did not charge for the salad and my partner said the whole salad was tired, the bar man then replied the tomatoes where all cut fresh that morning I mean oh my god it was 2 in the afternoon so potentially it could have sat around for over 5 hours thats not what I call fresh the chef needs re training or get a job in macdonalds. Then the bar man gave my partner a free pint...... where is the justice in that I suffer and my partner gets the freebie. On a positive note the pub has a nice atmosphere for a drink just avoid the food or have the gammon thats hard to ruin by any standards.

Has become very popular again, and offers three real ales. I just wish they'd get Landlord back on! The drinks here are dearer than across the road at The Bold. Food is ok. Sitting outside on a summers evening getting drunk can be very nice.

visited on a Sunday, weather was nice so no tables outside but plenty inside

had a good pint of Black Sheep, really friendly bar staff and the pub was very clean

Food was below average avoid eating if you can

First time back, after several years, and this is no longer a pub, but a restaurant with a bar. Reasonable selection of beers and the bar service was ok. The food menu seemed very comprehensive and reasonably priced. However, the food ranged from good to bad - the chicken pie was so dried that both the pastry and the chicken were fixed to the pie dish. Fortunately, the fault was recognised and the price refunded.
Not somewhere I would go for a drink, but I may go back to try another meal.

Just called in for a couple the other week when we were in Southport for a wedding. Having read the previous few reviews, I was expecting the worst,and was therefore delighted to find not only an attractive and pleasantly situated pub, but also attractive and pleasant young ladies behind the bar, who were prompt and efficient, and really left me nothing that I can think of to complain about!
We didn't eat there, but friends had done so the the previous night,and reported very favourably.
