Aqualung . left this review about Lifeboat (JD Wetherspoon)

The Lifeboat is a new outlet from last summer and according to the Liverpool Echo and What Pub is housed in the former Conservative Club. Apparently there was a minor dispute over what they should call this but at least none of the options were politicians, although the Eric Pickles with a suitably unflattering sign would have been amusing.
Inside it's a large roughly square room with the bar on the right and the open kitchen behind it. Being a new outlet fixtures and fittings are better than average and there is also some exposed brickwork rather than wood panels. There seemed to be more people in to eat than anything else.
The twelve hand pumps had the JDW Trio Of Doom doubled, three ales from the not so recent festival, Hambleton Stallion Amber, Pheasantry Mikado Mild and Red Star Samba. I went for the Red Star Samba then as it had started raining also had a Mikado Mild both at £2.49 and in good nick.
Although not as good for beer choice as the Southport ones I reckon this is still worth a 7.

Real Ale Ray left this review about Lifeboat (JD Wetherspoon)

A large purpose built Spoons, previously home to the Formby Bowling Club, maybe that's why they left a bit of lawn out front. The interior consists of a three main areas, the front section with coffered ceilings painted in a dark bluey grey and oak timber work. A larger middle section, with a connecting rear dining area, which had an open to view kitchen and serving hatch, which is quite unique. The main bar runs along the right hand wall and is finished with a grey granite counter and timber oak front, which was finished with a parquet patterned floor design. 12 handpumps, so I went for the Peerless Frost Nip, which passed the three pint test.

A large new Wethers. Open plan with the pub a large barn-like thing. A large (for Wetherspoons) beer garden is to the rear. As you might expect pictures of RNLI lifeboat stuff adorn the walls. 12 handpumps on the bar in 2 banks of 6. 11 of these were different ales. Its a pleasant enough Wethers and a welcome addition for those hard up millionaires who live in the area.
