Used to be one of our favourite places to eat as a family and in fairness the pub looks great but the quality of the food seems to have gone down and doesn’t have the same “family friendly” feel it had before, not sure if it’s it’s trying to be a pub or a restaurant or maybe it’s trying not to attract young families, my kids used to love the getting a treat from the sweet and toy machine but last time we were there they were no where to be seen, Which was the end of the world for them but more importantly it was always a good way of keeping them quiet whilst mummy and daddy had another drink!

we came for xmas eve with 3 children and it was a nightmare from start to finish. the menu was just so so limited there was hardly anything to pick from at all , took an hour and 20 mins for our food to come, we asked where there chips they could've brought out as the little ones where really hungry, the waiter said he had to go and " ask the kitchen" if they done chips or not which he should've knew this anyway, and what pub wouldn't serve chips?! The kids meals where that late coming out they had gone past being hungry so that was just a waste as they didn't eat any of it. I think this pub has really gone down hill since the new owners have taken over which is a shame as it used to be such a lovely pub I wont be rushing back there anytime soon.....

its a nice pub with rooms upstairs ! that's what it is !! it isn't no 5 star Michelin restaurant although the owner must think it is. food portions are small, £17 for a rump steak - or £24 for rib eye, or £28 for a steak fillet the size of the palm of your hand all came with a few chips and 2 small mushrooms. (still hungry afterwards) pepercorn sauce for a tiny pot for £4 menu was very limited and at the prices there charging couldn't even cook the steak right, i asked for medium to well - i got well done - my lad asked for well done and got medium !! over all 13 of us ate and had pepsis which come to £400 - wont be going again just to point out we went back in 2017 and food was delicious and portions was ample, a little higher priced but not near the prices they are charging now

It can be a tough challenge to find a decent pub or restaurant in St Helens, however this place has nailed it following a huge renovation over the past few years. The venue is stunning, high end decor inside the bar and restaurant, and amazing heated booths and heated al fresco dining. The hospitality my family received during several Christmas visits was first class, a beautiful atmosphere, and slick service. The New Year's Eve menu, a seven course set menu was some of the finest food I have ever eaten, a real fine dining experience. If you enjoy quality food with a brilliant atmosphere then this has to be your first choice. Well done ro the team, you were amazing last night!

We booked a table for Christmas Eve as we did it last year and it was great but we were really disappointed! It was a set festive menu of £24.95 which was ok. Table booked for 1930 we ordered and I asked for vegetarian main 5 mins later was told it was not available We then asked what the alternative was and was told there wasn’t an alternative vegetarian option! We asked to see the manager who spoke to the chief and was then given 3 vegetarian options At approx 2030 we asked to order a dessert and was told the kitchen was closed! At no point where we told the kitchen would close at a set time We asked again to speak with the manager The server returned to say he had got it wrong and we could order a dessert!!! We ordered a gingerbread brûlée when it arrived it looked and tasted like a pannocotta!! I know it’s Christmas and covid is coursing issue with supplies but they didn’t even try would not recommend
