Pubs
  • ** All pubs in St Helens are like the Jockey off Shameless,full up with scruffy twats who look like they have been shipwrecked for 6 months..............The Gate on Chain Lane is full of blag scousers who think there heavy waffling shit about the Fitzy's but got found out when me mate belled one of em and put it on loud speaker...... "oh not them Fitzy's" was his reply the fucking pube..................The only decent boozer just off the Lancs is the 7 stars if your having a moody one with a little smasher.............Other than that fucking swerve any pub in the shit pit of a town................there all gormless c*nts with chips on there shoulders because there not a scouser but would give there giros to be one!! ( and you fucking know it people )........... If you meet a St Helens girl,smash it and bail it DON'T tell her your real name because they will fucking track you down on the net and case you to death.............by all means give her a number to your desperado phone so you can give it a monthly service and oil change hahaha..

  • malloneys is pretty good now lots of rambunctious nights to be had there. Plazza used to be sound aswell not enough room to swing a fist but you could always walk home with sweet smellin fingers.
  • BULL N DOG
  • I really thought thinks were looking up for St Helens when Chicaco Rock was built...Unfortunately, It ended up being staffed by the usual type of dopey fuckwits as the other "trendy" places and frequented by the same old slappers/chavs/and scum that this town has a knack of attracting
  • God this is dull, best = Maloneys, Zoo bar, Assembley (on a thursday), Nexus of course on a friday/sat, Yates ~ hmm ok, Dali bar and Panama joes!
  • THE SEVEN STARS in eccleston is our watering hole!
  • Cottoms pie bar

  • Bar X is great for the 12 - 16 year old crowd! The bouncers will eject you if you look over 17!
  • The Wheatsheaf in Mill Lane, best pub in town by far, Phil & Jane Banks run it second to none. On the other hand The Mill House in Mill Lane is run by Jane's Brother Chris talks like he comes off the dock road but he was born in St Helens ( Plastic Scouser )acts the hard man but those who know him know better, got a good guard dog though Cath, Dog Ugly and i mean it
  • Zoo Bar
  • The Sefton , Bar Java and the zoo bar are about the best in town at the moment.the royal alfred WAS good in the early to mid nineties but unfortunately is now just a shadow of its former self.the beer is only slightly less bitter than the landlady . But to be fair;if i was married to a miserable,badly dressed, ian curtis lookalike i suspect i would feel the same.if anyone reads this and decides to pay the place a visit, then under no circumstances should you a) leave your change at the bar b)lend money to anyone or c) ask the barmaid to mind your pool cue.
  • The York, a quality boozer! Good ale etc
  • "chicago rock is better than any place in scummy liverpool scouse inbreds". WHAT CUNT PUT THIS ON HERE? U FUCKIN ST HELENS MOG SHAGGIN TIT!
  • the gerard arms has got to be the best pub in st.helens, cheap food, cheap beer, really good atmosphere and really outgoing bar staff, just what you need for a good pub! had so many good nights in there i'd advise you all to get in there!!!
  • The Griffin in Eccleston
  • Hey remember the greenbank pub now the spar classy joint!
  • nelson,buzby,chicargo
  • TAKE A CROWD OF 5 JUVENILES.TAKE 1 NERVOUS ADULT WHO HAS BEEN THREATENED ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS.THERE @ OFF LICENSE OR PUB IS THE REASONWHY POLICE DONT SEE ME 2 WEEKS LATER,THE THREATS HAVE ALREADY BEEN DELIVERED.GOV.NET
  • no pubs, just 3 litres of white lightning and a litre of buckfast
  • black horse in park road,it stinks,and it's the only pub i know were you go in the door and come out through a fuckin window,plus a couple of facial wounds that need stitches.
  • That one at the bottom of Hard Lane.
  • the gate in chain lane is a cracking laugh - and the birds are fit there too
  • Turks Head, Morley Street
  • The Bell and Barrel is shit, always has been, always will be. The "new ownership" provided a ray of hope for a few weeks, then it was back to the same old same old.
  • there are no good pubs or clubs in St Helens, get your inbred, pie eating(wiganers) arses down to liverpool.
  • THE OWLS NEST !!! HAYDOCK BOYS WE ARE ERE WOAH WOAH, HAYDOCK BOYS WE ARE ERE WOAH WOAH, HAYDOCK BOYS WE ARE ERE SHAG UR WOMEN N DRINK UR BEER WOAH WOAH ! CABY, OWEN, COZ, SHAUN, PERCY, DEE, BITTERS N THE REST (2 MANY ) THE ORIGINAL HAYDOCK MASSIVE !!!
  • One word....vile!!...Moving here from a civilised city where pub customers knew how to use a toilet, could drink more than one pint of lager before killing eachother and where ladies could speak an entire sentance without using four letter words I am amazed that the place is still standing.It seems an ideal place for anyone who has a few pounds spare to knock up a tacky venue....call it a cafe bar (essential as apparently thats the only way to get a 2am licence!!) then fill it full of hoards of drunken foul mouthed backward teenagers!! Cant wait to escape the place.
  • The Mill in Sutton Leach was rockin'!!!! Sadly now, it ain't, but the beer is still as shite as ever. At least before the pub was happenin' enough to take your mind off what a bad pint you were getting. In fact can you get a decent pint in St Helens? I think not. Not unless you like shite lager...
  • Orange house for cheap drinks every night
  • The Gate wat a pub
  • Wow - good scene , been to westfield street 6 fridays on run and scored every time - panama joes (easy score), zoo bar (too thin), westfields (too full of black polar necked posers), nexus bar (tumbleweed city), dali bar (darby hill nite out). In parallel to wezy street theres bridge street, pubs for the youngies (bullion, nelso, bar x, buzbys, yates, chicago). and loadsa pubs/bars for oldies along the golden mile duke street.
  • Bell and Barrel
  • boars Heed or bull n dog on a friday nite for stand up bingo
  • the bullion for the banter at tracsuit wearin wools dancin bein wannabe scousers.an for the dj who at the start of his set on a friday mc's to my name is by eminem, pure pleasure. Bar x has a secret room at the bottomm of the stairs just push and ull find it. its like bein in solitary but hey me an my friedn found it amusing wen we ended up in there after falling down stairs, that bump resulted in m62 walk down slip road.thats illegal.
  • Anfield Arms.Semtex anyone? Even scousers must be embarressed by this dump.
  • yates's is good on a sat nt, clean reasonable prices n the food is (usually) spot on, jus not the busiest o places, good meetin spot!
  • Ice bar formerly bears paw,great music,great atmosphere,friendly bar staff,open till 2am on saturday night,great way to end your night,why pay for a club
  • Having left St Helens way back, finishing off at the "Tech" (my how its changed)1967 just as the Beatles were about to release the Sgt Pepper album, I can still remember the only 3 pubs the college crowd visited were the "Royal" across from Birchalls (great pies after pimblets)on Westfield and the other 2 in Bridge St. The best lunch time food was the Chinese at the bottom of Duke St (what was the name?). Now my question, does anyone know where the OLDEST running pub is in St Helens?
  • Horseshoe Parr, Is a great weekend venue with dj dillys disco and kareoke a night for all to remember
  • Is it true that the Nelson pub has toilet signs saying "fannys" and "dicks instead of female and male? The Raven Lodge, The Sephton.
  • Furnace Mans Arms, Pocket Nook Street
  • lowies under 18s
  • Busby's - bobbins, knock it down before somebody catches something.
  • we have gone from having no bars to so many i dont know how they will all stay in business
  • From memory not a decent ale house at all. I suppose the locals will be full of short house shell suit clad football loving danny boys, rather than working class locals. Beer in St Helens has always been bad, the attempts at local brewing of late are Heroic, in the face of Alcopops/Strong Lager we dont know. we wish you well, Brewers of Water Street, we are a doomed species however.
  • gate on chain lane - a very popular geezer called charlie drinks in there although i have never met im meself he must be one cracking lad coz everyone in there is always looking for him!
  • WETHERS IS CHEAP, CHEAP, CHEAP ALE..WHAT MORE CAN YOU ASK FOR??? THERE IS ONE MISERABLE..ER...PERSON..BEHIND THE BAR IN CHICAGO WHO,S ENOUGH TO TURN THE ALE SOUR....YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!!YOU UNHELPFUL B*****D-PERHAPS IF THE SERVICE WAS QUICKER FOLK WOULD GO IN...DUKE ST IS A BRILL NIGHT PLEASE TRY IT IF YOU HAVEN,T ALREADY.
  • Assembley - the best in town
  • In the Railway Pub watching Footy on Spanish TV
  • The Royal Alfred, for letting me drink in there whan I was 16
  • if visiting the gate in chain lane please note that the barmaid serves the beer with traditional head - this is usually in the girls toilets in one of the cubicles.
  • the gate chain lane - what a lovable bunch of nutters- just sit and observe the regulars and youre guarenteed to be entertained. better than watching telly- these lads and girls should be on the stage!!
  • FORUM 44 WAS GOOD, ASSEMBLY ISNT. SINBIN IS BORIN. BUZBYS IS GOOD BT CAN B LIL CROWDED N NOT REALLY A PLACE TO TAP. JOKERS IS PROBABLY THE BEST PUB IF U WNT TO TAP N LISTEN 2 GOOD MUSIC.
  • The star at Merton bank. Top pub not like the Gate -full of big mouthed scousers acting like the oldest swingers in town. Slag St.Helens off but dfont dont fancy moving back to the "pool". I wonder why ?
  • Bar X is the place to go on a thursday, friday or a saturday night until all the saddos fuck off to nexus and crystals! dali bar then maloneys has to be the ultimate sunday night!
  • The SEFTON has been 'refurbished' & them crazy ass bar maids are great!!!
  • For a couple of cheap bevvies, and if you miss the Plaza go The Bullion for some tequila and a blast form the past

  • Bridge Inn Burtonwood .....that great Burtonwood Bitter taste
  • Bear n Barrow
  • THE HORSESHOE IN PARR--- IN THE EARLY 80,S EVERYONE IN TBE BAR CLAIMS THEY WERE IN THE S.A.S. STRANGELY ENOUGH DURING AND IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE FALKLANDS CONFLICT THE BAR WAS BEREFT OF MILD AND BITTER MONSTERS. HENCE, THE ARGIES GOT A GOOD FUCKING KICKING. NUFF SED!!
  • Jokers is full of dirty sluts the bar maids are hard faced bitches that are after your fella while your on the toleit same applys for crystals. Buzbys is cheap and good atmosphere and good music on a weekend the dali bar is ok maloneys is expensive but decent the bouncers are nob heads
  • Take your pick - at last count I got to 83 in St.Helens itself and then there's Rainhill, Knowsley and Prescot etc. Most are pretty safe unless there are gypos in town, in which case steer away from that pub - or else it'll be The Landings all over again. Bikers can find a great pub "The Bowling Green" in Parr at the bottom of Berry's Lane. Very friendly, but you have to wonder whether they really have planning permission for half the stuff they've constructed - but I'm not going to ask.
  • DEFINATLEY NOT THE PRIMROSE ON PARK ROAD, ale is poo it smells and it full of 13/14 years olds
  • Forum was ok-b4 they tok it away(will the new spot replace its cred cheesy music?) bar X is gud gets abit crowded tho!! not complainin otherwise by the time i get there i wouldn't get it!!
  • try the BLACK BULL, knowsley road its just got a new landlord, which has turned the place from a s@*t hole to a good night out any day or night of the week, the quiz on tuesday with the give away beer, even i won that once, disco thursday, karaoki friday. don't bother going to town and getting your head kicked in. come in for halloween and get dressed in fancy dress, play games, win prizes, and have a great time. youv'e tried the rest now try the best.
  • Cant beat the Raven - feet on seats, comfy chairs n' shit, as well as nice bar staff who let you smoke weed round the corner past the pool tables.
  • Primrose Vaults,GREAT LANDLORD AND LANDLADY,Some great characters drink there who are always good for a laugh.Try it
  • obviously a lot of people leaving messages here lived in st helens in the days of applebys...well applebys sadly has gone. ive lived in st h for all of my 18 years, nexus is a decent place. and as for it bein a whore house....quite true, its full of em. glad to say i aint one, but hey if u cant pull its good so u should come and check it out, st helens aint a total dive

  • BUZZERS! for a laugh youve got to head to buzbys! from old men dribbling at the bar to old tarts trying to get it on with teenagers in trackies and finally the gang of sad heads who sit by the toilets day in day out!
  • go to the Blackbull, Knowsley Road to watch new local bands,....24th May 2002, Odd One Out and Mayfly..fffffffantastic!!
  • do not go there with dali bar wine it tastes of piss ! the vully in sutton is fab ! weatherspoons fab five sit there all day and work up a good thirst !
  • Went in the old Plaza (now the Orange House) for the first time on Sat night and I must say it was pretty good with a DJ and 2 drinks for 2 which you can't complain about! I was pretty bladdered by the time I sumbled out at ten past one. You don't even stick to the floor in there any more. Some of the same bouncers though if I'm not mistaken ( trying to look smart in black shirts)
  • Forum
  • I LIKE EM I LIKE EM THOUGH CLUBS R BETTER
  • Nelson should bring bak V.S's

  • The Nelson has has it too good for years. Now there is a choice in St.Helens. That choice seems to be Chicago Rock. Pity Yatess has no atmosphere. They're usually very good.
  • Maloneys is possibly the best bar in St Helens nowadays. But The Sporties is good for a laugh.
  • market place cream lounge
  • The Woodands disco sunday ,tuesday ,thursday 49p for half lager 1.00 for double vodka n orange! completely pissed off 4.00 either way!suffering hangover in school amd another lie about what film we'd watched at the pictures!!!!
  • THE GROGADILE IN THATTO HEATH
  • the bullion is the only pub to my knowledge where you need a preliminary swimming certificate to take a piss!
  • I love Bar X, if ur a student then the best place to work is the wheatsheaf, all the tutors drink there so, if you are discreet about what they get up to, u can get away with murder!!!!
  • chicago rock is better than any place in scummy liverpool scouse inbreds
  • Ok, there are lots of nice bars, just a real lack of clued up people. The best music in the town (and probably the surrounding areas) is the Nelson on a Saturday night (ok the pubs a sh1thole but the tuns and mixing is outstanding). Uncommercial House and Garage with some old school thrown in. This DJ is wasted round here. Westfields on a Saturday also has a top R&B DJ, but why does the bar fill with middle aged, has been blokes. Shouldn't you be in Crystals, you certainly aint there for the music.
  • To be fair some decent bars have sprung up, just need decent people to fill them instead of the meathead massive.
  • Get yourself down to Blackbrook Rugby Club on a Saturday or Sunday. Watch the games (Open age Saturday, kids 7-16 Sunday). Bring your kids, leave them to run riot and smash up the premises whilst you get pi**ed, (Thats what everyone else does). If you're lucky you might see the rugby team getting their kits off on a Saturday after the match, setting fire to their todgers, throwing women around on the floor etc, etc, Don't pay good money for mediaeval entertainment, it's all for free at Blackbrook. But seriously, top beer, reasonable prices, a steward who cleans his beer lines regularly and actually buys his beer from the brewery in sealed barrels. (Unusual that!). The bar staff here are probably the best in the world, the customer is never right and all staff appear to have undergone training at the Jim Royle charm school, you'll pick up some great insults to use on your worst enemies. They only tend to insult people they know - so you'll be safe for your first few visits - you mght even get a smile - but don't hold your breath. Clientele are from all over due to the rugby at a week-end, but through the week be prepared for the Blackbrook and Parr in-breds.
  • There are no decent pubs/clubs in this backward shit hole. Get you arse down to Wigan for a proper night out.
  • The Plaza is now called the Orange something or other - has anyone been in it yet? Anyone know what it's like??
  • no good pubs in St Helens, only gathering places for inbreds to fight. I mean the gate was good fun, but it was still a $h1t hole. Although the Nelson was less aggressive than most.
  • JAM PACKED WITH HOB GOBLINS WEARING THE STRANGEST OUTFITS DRINKING THE LEFT OVERS FROM LONG GONE HORRIFIED SCOUSERS. (GROSS)
  • THE WOODLANDS ON WOODLAND ROAD IS AN EXELLENT PLACE TO GO ON A WEEKEND WITH PINTS ON CARLING AT 1.55 IT CANT BE BAD.
  • THE GED ROCKS!!! (Gerrard Arms) specially Quiz night - a fave for all us student types!!
  • Java An unspoint drinking haven.
  • Best pub by far in St.Helens is defo BAR X!!!!!!!
  • Chicago Rock -This place is like the Star Wars bar....take your light saber with you.
  • BAR X IS A GREAT BAR AND SERVES MICHELOB , GOOD TUNES PLENTY OF EYE CANDY. CHICAGO ROCK IS A VERY BAD NIGHT OUT FULL OF OLD PEOPLE AND THE SAME TUNES WEEK IN WEEK OUT. SUNDAY USED TO BE A GREAT NIGHT BUT ITS VERY BAD NOW.JAVA FOR A QUICK SNAK.
  • The Turks head when Sirley and Earnie hadit. Top place.
  • Red Cat nr crank
  • chicago rocks good but they dont serve guiness, but they have all these pictures of the beatles and the stones and the who but no way do they play their music.the chicago rocks a nice place but it dont rock
  • Chicargo Rock, Yates's, Forrum 44 and the superb "BAR X" Finally a place where you can dance to modern dance tunes. A slice a Liverpool Scouse House has been delivered with stlye, without the fear of getting your head kicked in. This place is really nice and modern with two floors, nice people and a great DJ on Friday and Saturday nights playing the best bouncy tunes and modern chart! BLOW MY WHISTLE BITCH!!!!!
  • the bullion is ace and forem 44 is the limit
  • nelson- sound, forum- wheres everyone gone, bullion- too old now, buzbys- not bad bear and barrow- shite, sefton- rock on, there are some of the craziest girls working there see for your self.
  • WELL IF YOU ARE INTO HEAVY METAL MUSIC SPORTSMAN INN IN DUKE STREET IS THE PLACE TO GO. EVERY WEDNESDAY THEY PLAY BUZZIN MUSIC THEY PLAY LIMP BISKIT METALLICA ALL THE BEST YOU HAVE TO GO TO LOVE IT AND I GO AND I ADORE IT ID GIVE IT 100% OUT OF A 100!!!!! GO AND FIND OUT THIS WEDNESDAY
  • TOPLESS BARMAIDS IN THE DUKE OF CAMBRIDGE, YELLOW ROSE. BUZBYS, RENDEVOUS, THE PHEONIX - NO OTHER TOWN HAS THESE PUBS
  • Weaterspoons is ace in my opinion.....those who moan about no music will be outweighed in terms of cheap decent pints (no watered down here).. plus u have the chance to chat and listen to music later on in he night.. CJ
  • Gerard Arms when it's full of pissed up teachers from Cowley.
  • The bullion..what a dive but for a treble and splash at 2.80 you'll soon be too pissed to notice the state of the place anyway they've tried to do it up just look at those trendy wicker chairs....
  • Hartley's and the Tudor House
  • gerard arms, good place for meeting friends, Chicargo rock (if it counts as a pub) is the best place in town in the moment!
  • Forum 44 1998 world tour continued.... Jameso!
  • the forum 44 when it was the bank cool night out
  • Yates, Chicargo Rock, Nelson, Lincoln, Forum, Bear and Barrow, Or if you are really classy The Landings, Lamb or the Bullion. But where evr you go your guaranteed a laugh and usual a friendly welcome ! Just avoid Crystals dodgy!!!!
  • Has to be The Royal Alfred early 90s. Fantastic. Get pissed and then outside for a grope with your maths teacher.
  • Who said St.Helens was Shit? - Forum 44, Bar X, Weatherspoons, Chigago Rock, Yates's, Dali Bar, WA10 do I need to continue? Just open your eyes all you who think you know a good place when really your eyes are full of shite
  • I wouldnt spit on bar x and ITS contents of snobby fat FOOLS.THEY WANT TO GET A LIFE AND REALISE THEY ARE STOOD IN ST HELENS,THE TURD PIT OF THE UK AND NOT IN A DESINGNER BAR IN MILAN.

THIS THEN TOWN, HOW CAN ANYONE SURVIVE.
  • the sutton oak is run by a dirty middle aged slut who looks like a man, I kid u not.The landlord is a terminal twat and lets just say some off the locals should ave been in the legue of gentlemen
  • The Beechams Bar and Brewery( under the beechams clock tower in westfield street) is a crackin little pub it makes its own real ale and recently came second in the Liverpool beer festival, the barman Paul is a sexy bast*rd and is currently looking for someone toplay with so give him a shout. Also its full of students and some off the female students r well worth a look
  • The best build up to nexus is...sefton,nexus bar,westfeilds,then dali bar.The dali bar is just great wham is always being played whooooo!!!

  • Eagle + Child not bad for a quiet drink now and again. I mean quiet :)
  • the bullion is a dive, like all other pubs in the town centre. but we still go don't we?
  • barx~(new)....bullion(top pub).....the lamb(2nd best pub)hen and chicks(superb)
  • Many pubs in St Helens operate a 'no moustache, no entry' door policy.
  • Go to Buzzby,s and have a cheap pint of beer in a dirty glass. Before entering the pub though, get somebody to kick all your teeth out, tattoo you, and make you smell. Then you'll look the part.
  • Java bar on westfield street, ask for Jackie (even though its not her real name)
  • GLASSMAKERS ARMS SUTTON: Under new management sorry owners used to be a good pub with good entertainment on a sat/sunday disco. What happend to Mike who used to run the pub. He was friendly, pleasant,and single every girls dream, well mine anyway. If anyone knows were he is tell him he's missed.
  • british lion toll bar because/ ?
  • My pub routine is Bear adn barrow, Lincoln for a screaming orgasm, nelson, bullion sin bin and then the nexus. What a night!
  • the gerard arms in windle is the best pub in town,with a decent crowd and a good atmosphere and no scumbags like you get in the usual town pubs
  • The Gerrard.........not sure why it was so popular but it was a good place to catch up with people.
  • Forum44, Bullion,
  • Forum is full of kids and snotty cows.The Nelson is full of pool tables,Im sorry but who wants to play pool on a night out.It is impossible to get a drink in The Market Place.There may be all these new wine bars but who actually goes in them they have no atmosphere at all !!!
  • The Sutton Oak, Bold Road, St. Helens, where mine hosts Tony & Anne will serve you with Traditional Cask Conditioned beer, with Boddingtons Bitter and Websters Yorkshire Bitter always on tap. This is probably the only Pub in the area STILL serving cask conditioned mild, and Theakstons at that. With a sizable beer garden, GIANT television screen, and bar meals we've got something to please everyone
  • check this out on a saturday night the Bowling Green robins lane sutton great kareoke brilliant friendly atmosphere. Quiz nights on thursdays.
  • Tapas bar in Duke Street. 70's Music, mainly Abba , in lovely darkened taverna style surroundings. Sunbathing facilities for the odd day that the weather mimics the Spanish. Friendly staff, regular food and GREAT BAPS behind the bar!
  • The Glassblowers!!!!
  • The Bear and Barrow, The SinBiN and the Sefton b4 Nexus
  • Does anyone remember the Primrose? Ex landlord being non other than Roy Matthias. Not a bad pint and a good crack
  • The Forum 44 has great music and is good for a laugh before you go clubbing and Sin Bin the new bar is great always has lot's of saint's players in there
  • The Royal Alfred, Sportsmans on a Wednesday - sadly full of 15yo's in "KORN" T-shirts (Isn't it ironic that KORN have no adult fans - a bit like Steps really!)
  • Forum 44 used to be the top place on a thurs night, until they stopped having WKD for 1.50, nexus cafe bar is smart, though, and has cheap drinks if u can put up with people singing bon jovi all the time on the karaoke, get back to the bullion, (bullion has a new carpet and chairs that must be from a garden centre or thriftys or something)
  • You've got to like Buzby's for Irish Rover at last orders.
  • The Rifle....The Globe.......The Ship Inn
  • The woodlands free pooltables as its always empty.
  • You can't beat the Sefton! and Tracey is a top bar maid.
  • The Wheatsheaf on westfield street, because you can get REAL beer ie Ruddles county , Theakstones `old peculiar' . And the landlord knows his stuff , doesn't water down the beer and cleans his pumps. God I cant stand Lager or Greenalls bitter (which incidentally started orignally in St Helens, before it moved to Warrington.) Greenalls now don't even make there own beer any more, which is as well cos it tastes like its been through the digestive tract of a labrador. This last statement is true of ANY beer that's brewed in Warrington. The only decent pint brewed locally is Caines in Liverpool and because most of the pubs in ST Helens are tied to Greenalls or Whitbread(just as bad) you just cant get a decent pint.
  • Golden Lion in Rainford. Well we lived there anyway. Try Gerard in Dentons Green.
  • The Elephant in Thatto Heath is a Good Pint and lots of Music and Good CROWD
  • What can I say.. Things have improved, We have Nexus wine bar and Westfields. If you ever in THATTO HEATH, pop in and see Joe and Jenny. They also have a lovely Barmaid call DEB: CHEAP beer and good music and lots good conversation
  • The Black Bull, next to the Saints ground - its like two pubs in one. One half's a dump and the other's posh (but you have to pay 2p extra per drink for the privilige of drinking in there)
  • Buzbys pub nice friendly place full of Thatto Heathers, by the way Thatto Heath was once known as That Way To Heath, (but the letters on the sign fell off the sign post to read Thatto Heath).
  • sportsmans inn duke st, rock night every wednesday night,soul,northern and tamla every sunday night
  • The Windle on Hard Lane has some really great food, drink, oh and excellent staff. A must for young and old alike
  • The Pig,in Sutton,a pub that literally is full of pigs that need a Good Swill !
  • The Gerard Arms has ad a bit of a face lift and has since lost it's atmosphere. Still it's a good pub for meeting up in before you trot off into town. The new Bear & Barrow is a good place for meeting up in, in the centre of town. There are lots of good looking girls in there, everything is nice and clean and if you're not old enough to get in then there is always the Forum about 100yds away.
  • THe Gate is the number 1 pub, the regulars are good bunch, and it serves meals as well as beer. Beware that you don't get hustled on either the pool table or the dart board though as there are some shady characters.
  • The Alfred , The Gerard ( beatnik heaven on Sundays )
  • Brown Edge, Nutgrove - a real local's pub and home to a number of sports teams including the infamous Prescot RUFC
  • The Abbey, Bull and Dog, Gerrard Arms out of town. Sefton & Nelson in town.
  • Jokers is a great pub in the town centre......good fun....brill atmosphere!!!
  • Good pubs if you don't mind the Trevs everywhere... The Gerard Arms is the pub to go in if you want a good nights drinking. Forum 44, Lincoln Square, Sefton, Alfred, Lingholme, Nelson.
  • The Yellow Rose has an "interesting" Friday night show. It's on North Road.
  • The Windle Hotel in Hard Lane - where I live
  • Check out The Mill House near Sherdley Park in Sutton to see Julia the best looking barmaid in the north of England
  • The Turks Head - Cooper St. Cheap and EXCELLENT ale, a landord and landlady who are the epitome of domestic harmony; and a welcome safe haven from the antics of the pie eating lager swilling nurks who inhabit the town centre pubs every night after 20:00.
