Real Ale Ray left this review about The West Kirby Tap

Owned by Spitting Feathers Brewery from Chester, so you will always find one or two of their beers on. The pub always has seven hand pulled ales and one cider to choose from, I went for their regular, which was Spitting Feathers Thirstquencher. The other beers on my Thursday afternoon visit were, Spitting Feathers Session, Great Heck Sleck Dust, Black Lodge Extended Universe, Brass Castle Sunshine, Tiny Rebel Loki and Peerless Triple Blonde. The cider that was on was Oliver's Shezam, and there was also 4 keg lines, 2 continental lagers and a good range of canned and bottled beers.
The space consisted of one large high vaulted timber trussed lounge area and bar, with a smaller room leading off this at the front. The bar had an oak counter top with the front of the bar painted in dark green, a distressed timber wall on the opposite wall made a good feature.
Staff were friendly and informative, and the fellow drinkers were also friendly and chatty. Monday has a Hoppy Hour from 12-5pm, where all real ales are £2.50 a pint.

Now a proper pub. Same lot who have The Brewery Tap in Chester. Will keep strokey-beard Camra types happy.

More restaurant than pub. Serves eurofizz beers. Oh, and they're extremely expensive.
