Looks like a tidy makeover from the days I remember it as an irish pub. While I miss that and on my visit the atmosphere was a tad below perfect this is a nice and friendly pub and would return

Visired on a quiet weekday lunchtime. Very friendly and welcoming. Good place to sit and relax with a beer or coffee and light snack or meal.

Enjoyed my visit to the Halberd Inn to watch Liverpool FC beat Crystal Palace. I had a nice burger meal although the tomato sauce that I requested never arrived, hence four stars instead of five for service; the meal was washed down with a lovely pint of Guinness both at reasonable prices. On this winter's day it was noted that the pub temperature was perfect.

Had an excellent burger here before now. Service is good. Nice atmosphere. Large because of the outside spaces which have roof coverings. Good place for watching sports, plenty of screens. Ideal for a drink before your table is free at Storico :-)

Totally taken back by how this place has changed for the better. Food menu was excellent and range of beers, wines etc very impressive. Staff were very considerate of the fact we had our youngest asleep, they kept the food warm and brought when we had finished our own (bravo).. Dog friendly, real fire close to town, Christchurch park, sky sports, good music too, what more could you want.👌😊
