I regularly pass this bar and whenever I do its outside drinking area is invariably packed. Having called in recently with my wife for a drink I can understand why: a pint of Guinness and a pint of Peroni cost me £5.

Stayed last Saturday just for one night whilst seeing relatives and visiting the flower show in Southport. Lovely clean, spacious room. Staff all friendly and very helpful. No noise at night and excellent breakfast. Will definitely visit again.

Ate here with my Partner. Service was great and the food was too. I must admit I wasn't a fan of the chips, a little too crisp for me, but everything else was great and the sharing dessert was fab.
