Pubs on the Trail
Start where you like, when you like, but make sure you do it with great friends.
Queen’s Royal • New Brighton
New Brighton’s hidden gem for ale enthusiasts with six Cask Ales on tap at all times. Located on New Brighton’s recently transformed promenade, enjoy your pint and salty sea air in their great beer garden. On our first trail the sun was belting down and sitting outside in their beer garden with a cold ale was just what dreams are made of.
Cheshire Cheese • Wallasey
Cheshire Cheese pub dates from 1885, but a pub was known to be on the grounds as early as 1561.
Ship Inn • Hoylake
A real ale pub in the heart of Hoylake, another with a gorgeous beer garden, a delicious new menu, sports and live music.
Coach and Horses • Greasby
An intimate, traditional real ale pub beloved of local ale fans, with four real ales, log fires, wooden beams and panelling
The Irby Mill• Irby
The quintessential British country pub. Small rooms and traditional features make you feel you’ve gone back in time. This little pub serves great food and a good selection of ales and has a car park too.
New to the trial, pouring a rotating buffet of 24 uniquely crafted local ales, stouts and ciders.
Caernarvon Castle • Oxton

Gallagher’s • Birkenhead
A unique pub where great ale and a barber’s shop are put together in an unusual but successful mix. A lot of people embark on the day’s events from this pub which stays busy throughout the day. Great transport links to the event from here.
