Four hand pulls on the main side of the bar and I believe another one or two on the other side. Doom Bar, Razor Back, Weetwood Cheshire Cat and two by Mobberley. The Mobberley Chinook looked the most promising but unfortunately was not available, so went for the Mobberley Town Crier Ale, which sounds like a regular house ale as it matches the description Graham Coombs gave in his 2020 review. Similar to his experience, it didn't do a great deal for me and was on the bland side. This set me back £3.90 for a pint, despite only asking for a half, the barmaid seemingly didn't hear me properly or wasn't paying attention.

Very busy on a Saturday evening at 6pm, I only really called in as I had a bit of time to spare while waiting for a friend's train to arrive at the station. Fine to experience it but no desire to rush back. Football was on at the time, on many TV screens. A beer garden was signed but not investigated.

A large, lively and popular pub opposite the station, heavily refurbished and catering for all types with a mixture of seating and a beer garden behind. Suffers from a proliferation of TV screens and rather too-loud music but otherwise tolerable. Draught ales were IPA, Abbot, Doom Bar and a house ale from Mobberley which didn't do a great deal for me. Could be better, but could be a lot worse.

Nothing special, this is basically a Wetherspoons in more of a sports bar mould. lovely building, dull interior. Actually given the captive market it enjoys, it’s pretty uninspiring. two real ales on this brief visit, GK IPA and Liverpool Cascade. The bar at the Queen Hotel was, surprisingly enough, better than this place.
