Disappointed, no welcome on entry, or on exit. First choice from menu n/a, fish had no taste whatsoever, kids chicken burger a small piece of chicken on a bun!Menus sticky, we weren't asked if everything was ok or if we would like a dessert.Staff could have looked more professional. We won't be returning.

Visited Formby beach and we were looking for a dog friendly pub to go in afterwards, very glad we found this place! The staff were lovely, they offered Water for our dog after we arrived and came to give her some dog chocolate from the advent calender which I thought was a very lovely touch! Food was also very nice, glad we chose here and we would definitely visit again😁🥰

Lovely place and friendly staff. I ordered apple crumble and Tea. Crumble and Tea is nice but the taste of the Coffee is not too good. Dog friendly

The food and service was great. Lovely and friendly staff We only went in here for food. . However they have big screen sport and the TV was way too loud but was only turned up after we already ordered.. we were virtually shouting to talk above it. Football was on and the place was far from packed . A few at the bar maybe 8 or 9 watching football.. everyone else was either eating at a table or having a quiet drink. So TV really didn't need to be so loud throughout the pub. . Had we known then we wouldn't have eaten there. It wasn't so loud when we got in but was turned up while we were waiting for our meal.. anyway that said. We enjoyed the food and staff were great and other customers seemed really friendly too. . So I would definitely recommend this place's not fine dining as it's a pub, we but it is very good and great value. . No complaints about anything apart from TV being too loud . When it didn't need to be. . As we could hear it fine before we ordered. I will definitely eat there again if I'm in the area but not if footballs on lol

First visit to this pub. Sad to say that although we arrived at 1:10 pm, the day’s special of roast lamb was finished, despite adverts for this choice. Roasts are served 12 - 8. But second choice was excellent - roast pork with everything I would want. Tasty and hot with good portion size. Had sticky toffee rum flavoured pudding with ice cream and a cappuccino. Bill was very reasonable and service was polite friendly and quick. Glitch on in-house app, in that payment was taken but the order did not reach the kitchen, despite receiving confirmatory E-mail. However, food was good, as was ambience, so will return soon.
