Advantages: 2 4 1 meals, child friendly, easy to get to
Disadvantages: doesn't have the local pub feel
This pub was chosen as a half way meet place between myself and an online mummy friend, I live in Ellesmere Port and she lives in Bury, and we meet up every couple of months with our babies.
This is a good half way for us both taking approx 30 minutes each to drive to.
The pub provides plenty of car spaces, and is a very large pub indoors with plenty of seating available. The pub is very easily located off the M6 too.
The Food and drinks
The choice of veggie food isn't great, but then most pubs aren't, either that or I am fussy! I ended up going for a usual cheese baguette and chips and some garlic mushrooms.
Although the time before I had a spinach and ricotta cannelloni, and to my disappointment it was off the menu this time.
Food is well priced and the drinks (although I only get non alcoholic are reasonably priced too)
This pub offers 2 for 1 on all main meals and some on the snack menu, which is fab, as it usually costs us about £6 with a drink each, with this deal, so makes it a relatively cheap afternoon out.
The baguette was the same as you would get in any pub, but the cannelloni was lovely, although I imagine it was a ready meal of some sort.
Apparently there are some flavours of the Heinz's mums own baby food, although I have always took my own food, or we have ordered something off the children's menu.
In the pub there was a changing room on its own away from the toilets which was good as you had the privacy of changing your baby, and there are also baby facilities in the wacky warehouse too. The toilets are of decent size and have always been clean when I have been.
We have always experienced friendly and quick service from this particular pub, so I have no issues with the service here.
We haven't been in the wacky warehouse yet, but I have been told its good, so the next time we go we will be letting the babies try it out.
I have never seen this pub over busy, whether its because we go in the week or because of its location I wouldn't know, and this is probably the reason it doesn't have the 'local' pub feel, but if we wanted that we would meet at a more local place.
This place is great for those who have kids
Summary: Fab half way place for us meet
