The Viking: 
25 August, 2016

The Viking – Pub & Bakehouse is the newly reopened Black Horse (aka the Collingwood or the Hilltop) in West Kirby. Reopened in June 2016, it has a Scandinavian theme, which will celebrate West Kirby's Viking heritage. The pub is operated by Flying Pub & Lobster Ltd, the company set up by TV chef Simon Rimmer. An island bar serves a large airy open plan area with various styles of seating areas and booths. The pub’s logo features the Norwegian Viking, Ingimund, who, according to the pub’s website, led the first Viking invasion on the East Coast and into West Kirby (The West Settlement) in AD902 – although there has only been a pub on this site since 1822. The beer range appears to be largely free of tie with a choice of local and regional cask beers available and the Budweiser Budvar is unpasteurised.

Argyle Ale House: 
25 August, 2016

On a les positive note, the Argyle Ale House in Argyle Street Birkenhead has closed after a relatively short life. The building was the Letters pub but in recent years has had a number of businesses which have not survived for long. Although the Argyle Ale House served several real ales it faced tough competition (a Wetherspoons within a few yards) and although it was free of tie didn’t offer an inspiring choice of beers which might have set it apart from the competition.

Coach & Horses in Greasby:

Category: Default
Coach & Horses in Greasby is reported to be under new management and undergone a bit of a facelift. This cosy unspoilt multi-roomed pub has sold a solitary real ale for many years but now has a rotating range and a suggestion there may be an extra one (or even two) hand pumps installed.
