Another new Wirral pub with cask beer: 
24 December, 2014

The Cock & Donkey in Rock Ferry (formerly the Fairfield) has been refurbished and reopened as the Cock & Donkey by Atwill Pubs, owners of the Cock & Pullet and The Open Arms. The pub has moved from a closed pub to building site to a tastefully refurbished pub with at least 4 cask beers in a matter of weeks. Hopefully this will add to the diversity we are starting to find in Wirral pubs with some interesting beers.
The Lazy Landlord:

The Lazy Landlord , Wirral's first micro pub opened its door on Friday 19th December. Not far from the centre of Liscard it offers a refreshingly peaceful escape from the noise and chaos of other local pubs. At the time of opening the pub is offering Brimstage Trappers Hat, Wentwell Stout, Salopian Darwin's Original and Lazy Landlord, a beer brewed for the pub by Wentwell Brewery. There are also two real ciders on sale. Although some building work and decoration is yet to be completed, the pub is well worth a visit and looks set to be popular with locals.
The Red Fox:

The Red Fox just outside Thornton Hough opened on Thursday 11th December. Formerly the Grange, the property was acquired and extensively refurbished by the Brunning & Price group who operate numerous gastro pubs including the excellent Old Harkers Arms in Chester. The seven handpumps dispense a range of beers (arranged in order of colour) from the local Brimstage Sandpiper to Woodlands Midnight Stout, recent winner of Champion Beer of Cheshire. The management are trying to steer away from the big selling beers so for instance, instead of Brimstage Trappers Hat they are selling Brimstage Sandpiper and instead of Timothy Taylor Landlord, they are selling Timothy Taylor Dark Mild.
Micro-Pub to open 19th December:

Wirral's first micro-pub, the Lazy Landlord at 56 Mill Lane, Liscard is now due to open its doors on Friday 19th December - NOT Saturday 13th as previously advised. The work on the building is taking slightly longer than expected but it should be well worth the wait.
The Farmers Arms, Frankby:

The Farmers Arms, Frankby had a new management team earlier this year and is building a reputation for keeping its cask beers in good condition. In addition to the popular permanent beers, Timothy Taylor Landlord and Jennings Cumberland Ale, it has two pumps for guests which although supplied via the Enterprise Pub Company are picked with some care bearing in mind the tastes of the locals. A current guest is Timothy Taylor Boltmaker, the 2014 Champion Beer of Britain.
