Jon B left this review about Ma Boyle's

busy with the suited and booted brigade, fancies itself as a continental style backstreet café bar I think. and it's a pretty nice relaxed place with good service although rebadged ale is a pet hate of mine, especially when it's clearly a bland mass market product.

This styles itself as a restarant and alehouse, which is fair enough as they do a full meal service, but although in literal terms the two real ales they had on qualified it as an alehouse, I would normally expect an alehouse to have a better selection. The two they had on were Portobello Star and Ma Boyle’s Mrs Livelihood. I was told that the latter is their own ale but the girl had no idea who brewed it. The food contained many pub grub favourites such as fish & chips (£9), steak & ale pie (£8.75), bangers & mash (£8), and burgers (£9).

This bar/restaurant is tucked away behind Our Lady and St Nicholas’ church. It’s completely modern inside, with little of interest that I noted. As you enter you go down a few steps to the bar area, and then back up a few steps on the left to what is effectively the dining area. There are a few tables and chairs outside with a nice setting next to the church gardens.

You don’t go to this bar for a genuine pub experience, but it was handily placed near our hotel for a bite to eat one evening, and did at least have a couple of ales on.

ROB Camra left this review about Ma Boyles Oyster Bar

A rather poorer visit for us than the previous reviewers. There are 3 handpumps on the bar, but only one was on. This turned out to be a rebadged Tetleys which was just about average. We went and sat in the raised area facing the bar and were promptly joined by a group of 4 blokes who were loud and very, very sweary. The barmaid didn't know anything about the CAMRA discount that Liverpool CAMRA said that they did either. We drank up and left. Not good on this occasion.
