Its been a while but now we are back and had to meet a friend up from London and this is the perfect place for it. £1.80 a pint ...... nothing to complain about and all food and drink comes with that super view of...the Mersey.More

Very busy but loads of young staff (mainly) on duty and they were very friendly and attentive. We ordered drinks and food via the Wetherspoons app so we didn't have long to wait and our meals were good value and piping hot.

The service was quick, food lovely, and the customer service nothing short of legendary. Shout out to the cashier and kitchen staff, my mates ordered me 10 portions of beans remotely and by God they delivered. Would highly recommend for both family dinners and meet-ups...with friends.More

We are normally regulars here, however we will not be returning. The quality of food has gone downhill, the tables are never clean and even when they’ve been asked if it’s okay to clean them they wiped over quickly and left them sticky. Considering we...are in the middle of a pandemic I found this shocking. The wait time for food has increased dramatically in the last few weeks. We waited over an hour after our children had finished their dinner for our food which only came out because we saw it sat on the hot plate for 30 minutes and then realised it was ours even then the staff weren’t bothered including the managers. I would avoid at all costs they have lost some loyal customers.More

This is a small pub in the marina. The menu is small but there is a good variety of choice. The chips were beautiful and I would give them 5 out of 5. The fish was disappointing bearing in mind we are at the coast....I would be happy coming back as generally the meal was fine.More

The food used to be mediocre at best, which we didn’t really mind as it was nice enough for a cheap meal out. Massively gone downhill lately though. Everywhere is sticky and dirty, the tables are rarely cleared or cleaned, and the food is now...inedible. Avoid.More

It took 35 minutes for our food to arrive, and we noted others having the same problem. Staff very apologetic, but if only we’d been warned before we ordered. It’s a lovely spot on the Promenade. Everything was very clean, and it was busy on...a warm August day. The food was standard Wetherspoon, tasty enough but not outstanding. We ordered prawns with sweet chili sauce, arrived without the sauce, and when we asked, were told the sauce wasn’t available, we’d have to help ourselves to other condiments. We do know many places are struggling with staff shortages, and by the time we finished, they were stopping anybody from coming in, so the place was full. But it wasn’t really as good service as we used to get from Wetherspoons.More

Dirty uncleared tables, poor staffing numbers and badly trained staff that let most of the hard working staff down! Walked out after consulting the tiny lettering an reduced menu….poor, poor, poor! I know we don’t do service particularly well in this Country but Wetherspoon seems...to degenerate by the year! Good luck opening the extension because you will have to rethink your whole approach!More

Tables sticky and dirty, the whole place felt like it needed a good clean and the manager quite sharp and rude
