Previous reviewers must have been to a completely different pub ! The food served is outstanding as are the drinks and staff. Its very welcoming and the new restaurant side of the pub Sally's is perfect as is the fact that the pub is split into two halves allowing diners to enjoy their meal whilst anyone wanting just a drink can enjoy the relaxed atmosphere in the other side of the pub. Highly recommended and definitely worth a visit.

This seems to be the boozer used by the Parbold locals.
To the left is a dining room with all the tables laid and there's a sign outside advertising tapas amongst other fare. I picked up a menu which had a few tapas type dishes listed but consisted mainly of standard pub grub and was sticky and filthy. The state of the menu alone would raise a question about what or whether to order.
The bar is spartan with a few bar stools and a couple of tables to one side leaving plenty of space for vertical drinking. There's a television on the back wall being watched by a number of enthusiastic Everton supporters on our visit.
As mentioned by the 2013 GBG there are 5 handpumps but only 2 beers were on: Lancaster Amber 3.7% and Pheonix Hopsack 3.8%. As mentioned by Mr Fastard, a very inexperienced barman made a total hash of pouring the Hopsack knocking any life it had out of it in the process.
A fair spot to watch the footie.

From the outside this looked like a regular village boozer,but the interior is clearly split into a lounge which is set up for dining with candles at each table while on the otherside of the island bar there is a public bar with only keg products,lots of bar stools for regulars,a flat screen and a raised section with a few tables and chairs.The footie was on,so the public bar was busy while the lounge virtually empty.The five handpumps are located on the lounge side but only two were functional,both modest ABV's and my Phoenix Hopsack was only average after being jerked into the glass by a very inexperienced barman.The 50p off per pint CAMRA discount seemed generous until the beer was tried.The sign outside boasting of five real ales raised expectations which were sadly dashed.
We didn't sample the food,nor was anyone else so can't comment on that ,but I doubt if I would revisit this GBG listed pub if I was after a decent pint.
