This is an awkward pub to review - it's quite clearly a destination pub, but it's so bloody hard to get to. Judging by the clientele when I've been here, it's a regular go-to pub for people living down the line in Barrow, for example. My problem is, that if I'm in the area and want to go to the pub, my pub of choice is a mile away in Broughton - the Manor Arms. This one I would come to when on a train journey around the coast. When I was here last year I had to time my visit according to the patchy rail timetable and the equally limited opening times of the pub. It's worth it - but you've got to be here or hereabouts to make it.

I had their own Dark Mild and Siren Undercurrent, both in good condition. Not my first visit here and hopefully not the last. Definitely one to include on a west coast rail crawl.

This GBG pub offers accommodation. It is detached, with a beer garden and is home to the Foxfield and the Tigertops Breweries. The pub itself is perhaps not the most aesthetic, in cream with a couple of incongruous extensions, on on the front (with plain windows), the other on the side. The interior has a couple of rooms. The smaller back room, in white with a cream ceiling and red carpet, has a bar footy game and dart board. There is a nice iron fire grate, eclectic chairs and maps adorn the walls. The main room is in cream and green patterned wallpaper and patterned carpet, and has a nice fireplace. Bar billiards, a piano and board games are available for different ways of passing the time. Old maps and prints are on the walls. This place does great food - especially the array of pasties - we ate here and really enjoyed it. There was no music and no TV. The service is very friendly and the place was busy with locals at our visit. Beer; usual tap stuff with Whim's Flower Power, Stringers' Dry Stout, Foxfield's Dark Crystal MILD, Breakfast on Pluto and Mixed Miller, as well as Great Heck Powermouse. The MILD and stout were decent. An excellent place, you would be a fool to miss it if passing nearby.

re-visited the pub now the alterations are complete, perfect, with perfect beers, great selection, great quality.

On the main road (A595) as you drive through Foxfield on the way to Broughton you will find this brewery pub opposite the railway station. In the process of being extended this is a real find with some of the best home cooking you will find in this area, just like eating at your mums, come early to get a seat. This pub does not open on Monday or Tuesday but if you are in the area at any other time you should not miss it. There are several pumps with excellent beers and a couple that are brewed on the premises, which are named when brewed. Book accommodation as it may be hard to leave.
