Real Ale Ray left this review about The Bow Legged Beagle

This micro was a former Lloyds bank, hence the couple of safes situated around the toilets at the rear of the pub. This is a good sized one roomed micro with the bar positioned along the back wall, which was finished in rough cut pine timber, which had a green colour to it, most probably the preservative added in the timber yard. Pine panelling also ran around the walls up to dado height and the floor was finished in laminate. The walls were finished in grey apart from the left hand side wall, which was a petrol blue colour. Low tables, made up from scaffold planks and school chairs provided plenty of seating choices. Five ales on handpump, on our visit, all displayed on a chalk board on the right hand wall. Their five beers were, Salopian Oracle, Beartown Crème Bearlee, Overkill IPA, 1924 Mobberley Brewhouse and Redwillow Faithless. I went for the Redwillow a decent 5.5% beer and only £3.40 a pint. This micro also had a choice of seven craft beers and three ciders.

Brand new micropub. Sister pub to the one in New Brighton. The single room has wood panelling along the walls with wooden floor and thick wooden tables. 5 handpulls on the bar and 8 taps on the wall behind the bar for crafty-a-likes. A novel feature is in the toilets as you walk past the ex-bank safe, with its combination locks et all, and a smaller similar safe on the wall of one of the toilets. Real ale today was Beartown Creme Bearlee, Chapter Bread And Circuses, Salopian Disintegration, Conwy Welsh Pride and Hafod Big Red. Situated in an old Lloyd's/TSB branch and a totally welcome addition to the area as the two rival pubs are bog standard. The best pub in the area by a country mile.
