Really nice n friendly pub. Little but quaint. They make up for little seating inside by plenty of seating around it. Great views.

A delightful little pub, warm, cosy and friendly and with a fine choice of drinks (the Kingstone Press was a lovely pint). I can imagine it's absolutely rammed on a warm summer night but so it should be, best pub in Southport by a mile.

Nice to sit outside at back of pub looking over the lake eating a pork pie and a cold drink. Pie was lovely. Nice little pub and toilets were clean.

Lovely little pub with the one very small room but a great terrace overlooking the lake. Very attractive place with stunning hanging baskets. Good choice of beers and sat on terrace watching the air show.
