About the Pub

Multiple award winning genuine free house close to the famous Mersey ferries, rescued after closure and refurbished in 2010 by a former Irish Guardsman as a unique pub with barber's shop. The barber's shop business closed in October 2016 creating more room for pub customers. Decorated with a fascinating range of military memorabilia and a collection of shipping images. Several ciders always available. Good value meals until 9.00pm every day except Monday with new menu from July 2017. Live music every Sunday from 6.30pm and Cheese Night on the last Sunday of the month; bring your own cheese.
