“Handy Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2013

I have been to this pub on a number of occasion with my last visit taking place in November.

It is really handy being so close to the Railway Station.

The food and drink are well made and reasonable too.

Would recommend for a light bite to eat.

“A hole.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2012 via mobile

More of a pub than a resturant. And a horrible one at that. Possibly the worst pub in Runcorn and on that point the worst resturant.. Not that I'd class it as such. I can only assume the poster of the 5 star review is a friend of the owners or is lacking in the basic senses eg sight, smell, taste. Ignoring the fact that the place is dirty and is vastly in need of major spruce up (note to owners, walk up the road and see what the current owners of the vasty improved Lion have done) this 'restaurant' sells basic reheated ping-chef pub grub. And peanuts. I'd risk the peanuts. Oh and clean the glasses. And do something about that grubby carpet and those small fruit flys. Did I mention this place is a dump? So much could be done with this place with its location but I guess the current owners don't care or are clueless. Suspect a mixture of both. Avoid, avoid avoid.
