Visited for a light lunch and a few drinks, by far the best Wetherspoon in Southport.
Friendly and efficient staff, standard wetherspoon fare.

“Good Wetherspoons Watering Hole”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

We were on a 6 day break in Blackpool in March 2014, & we visited Southport has part of our holiday.
After getting dropped off by our coach, we had a wonder around the shopping centre, which we found on Lord Street, which was a very long street, after visiting different shops we ventured into The Willow Grove a Wetherspoon's watering hole, which was located on Lord street & Nelville street, being on a corner in a L - shaped ground floor bar area, to which I ventured to check out thge real ales on offer.
I ordered a pint of Moorhouse IPA real ale at 5.5%, to which I found to be a refreshing drink, which went down very well, the pub was very clean & the staff good at their job.
We will certainly revisit this watering hole !
