Had a very enjoyable midweek meal at The Fishermans Rest in Birkdale, Southport. Close to the beach the restaurant/pub has ample parking, a friendly welcome and a good menu. I had one of the days specials; Spanish Omelette which was excellent. well worth a daytime lunch break if in the town, I'm told that if you want to go on the weekend, it might be better to ring and book because it gets very busy.

Great food, great atmosphere and great drinks. We love coming to the Fishermans rest and enjoy the pub quiz too (hence the reference to our team name in the title!) Definitely recommend for a drink and a bite to eat if you're in the area.

Visited here on a very busy sunday evening with partner and elderly father. A reasonable car park but if full plenty then p;enty of free on street parking outside. Nothing exceptional when you enter, just seems a run of the mill pub/restaurant. However, we were quickly seated and were pleasantly surprised at the varied menu available and at very reasonable prices. We each chose a differant meal which came surprisingly quickly in view of how busy it was and it appeared the food was freshly cooked. We were all more than satisfied with our choices and in particular the steak that one of us had was of a quality one might expect of a fine restaurant. The staff were happy to offer an alternative sweet that wasnt on the advertised menu for one of our party. Throughout, the staff were friendly and courteous. Reflecting on previous commentators, we too found the toilets exceptionally clean especially considering the time of dayand that the establishment was close to the beach area and it had been a hot and apparently busy day. Overall, we were impressed with our visit and will most certainly return.

Visited twice at the end of June whilst in Southport and had two excellent meals. Very much enjoyed the sea food linguini which was very tasty and equally as good as one would get in a good Italian restaurant. Enjoyed this meal so much I returned a few nights later for a repeat performance.
This was served with garlic bread and proved a very tasty meal. The other food on offer looked equally appetising which was all very reasonably priced and was excellent value for money. A pub I will return to next time I visit Southport.
