This is a great place for a meal or a drink. We visit regularly. Last week I popped in for lunch and had some lovely soup and a terrific tasty burger. Food is always good. The staff are always professional, welcoming and lots of fun.

Called in to the Nags as our usual spot for Sunday lunch was too busy with a long wait for food. Never been here before, not sure if we would go back as its quite a drive. Highlight for this pub is definitely the staff, really warm, welcoming and attentive. Ordered drinks and two Sunday roasts and sat down. Food... More

Came here with my running club after our annual 10k Winter Handicap. I ordered a Vegetarian Cottage Pie which was delicious and something I would recommend. Service was very friendly and made us feel welcome, all 25 of us. Hot Chocolate was nice too. Highly recommended.

After a quite disappointing evening at another Wirral pub on Friday evening this was a much improved experience. We were met with a warm welcome. They were due to be busy, with tables booked, but told us how long we had to eat before they needed the table back which was absolutely fine with us. The waitress was excellent. She... More

First time visit and have to stay, I'll be back. Management and staff are most friendly and most attentive. Food is delicious and presented well. Although I dined on my own seeing other's dishes arriving gave me a good overview of the menu. I chose the ribs in a barbeque sauce, Have to say it was an inspired choice, clearly... More

Not a huge selection but well cooked to order so the food may takes a while to arrive but tastes better for it. We are biased as this is our local so we go quite often. Good wine and real ale selection, and friendly staff. Good for walkers and welcomes dogs too.
