I was warned this pub had a rough reputation but there was no sign of that when I finally got around to visiting. A well cared for multi-roomed boozer busy with happy regulars.

Re-opened as the Refreshment Rooms gastro-pub in June 2012 after a long period of closure. A large open two-sided pub/restaurant with one side dedicated to diners (Although I sat there anyway.) Look out for the Birkenhead Brewery windows, although they might be modern reproductions. The food looks good and the small selection of quality real ales includes a house brew.

Rock Station This two sided pub was nicely decorated but looking perhaps a bit grubby in places when I was there in 2003. It was nice to find a jukebox that was audible but not deafening.
Returning in 2015 I found it has been well looked after and there was no sign of the grubbiness. It was full of friendly locals who were mostly ignoring the multiple TVs showing sports.
I'm not sure I like three screens side-by-side showing three different sports - it's very distracting - but one can always sit elsewhere in the pub, so no cause for complaint.
Now closed and demolished.

This popular multi-roomed pub was doing well on a Thursday afternoon. The interior is nicely done with a rough wood and bare brick theme.
