Boddingtons, John Smith's, Matthew Brown Lion, Theakston / Carling A remarkably wide choice of keg bitters in this two room pub where the decor was nicer than its reputation suggested. A little worn in places but nice and tidy. Now closed and demolished.

John Smith's / Foster's This pub in an area of run-down housing looks a little tatty from the outside. The large interior is well cared for and was busy with friendly football fans watching Liverpool on the LSTV when I visited. As well as the large screen there's lots of small ones around the place.
I'm told this is now closed and partially demolished.

Worthington This absolutely enormous converted barn is the only pub on this large modern housing estate. The nice decor was rather spoiled by giant promotional billboards. The hand pump was off when I visited.
The Fir Tree became nationally known after Rhys Jones was killed in the car park in 2007.
After a period of closure it re-opened in December 2010, with the original name restored.

John Smith's / 1664, Foster's The "sports lounge" is a large open room with a stage and a dance floor, and a pool table. An LSTV and a number of smaller ones were showing football and racing when I visited. Food is chips or Chinese. I didn't visit the separate "cocktail lounge".
I believe this is scheduled for demolition under the plans for Merseytram.

Tetley / Carling A large free-standing two sided pub. The inside is pleasantly decorated and clean and tidy and was busy with a friendly Saturday afternoon crowd watching football and racing on TV when I visited. There is a small stage in one corner, occupied by an LSTV. Oversize glasses for a full pint.
