user reviews of Plasterers Arms, Hoylake

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Along with The new micropub The Black toad (not listed on here) this is a great place if you like a decent pint of real ale and a chat with the locals. On our visit we had 4 ales on with the two of choice being from Purple moose brewery and the other white rat brewery the other two beers were from black sheep and some other national one that I forgot. The pub has a nice log fire and if your an animal lover dogs are allowed. Well worth hunting out.

This pub was better than I had expected. It is situated fairly close to the sea, but doesn't quite have a sea view (as the address may suggest). There are 2 rooms. The main bar has lots of things to view on the walls, shelves and ceiling. Wainwright & Bombardier were the 2 ales available.

First time visit yesterday following recommendations from others. Found it to be a great place, ale was top draw and atmosphere was decent enough.
Had heard rumours of this place being a bit of a "locals only" place, but in truth I found the people to be friendly and pleasant.
Definately worth a visit again.

Was in the Hoylake area, and not being a native, consulted the Good Beer Guide, which recommended the Plasterer's Arms. Went in on a busy Easter Sunday, lots of locals at the bar being racuous.

Ordered a pint and also just a wee half for my pregnant wife (who couldnt resist the Bombardier) whilst perusing the menu on a chalkboard behind the bar. The barmaid then lifted the drinks up on to the bar, and upon doing so I noticed she had poured two full pints. I said I "only asked for a half, as well as a pint" to which she replied "you've stood there and watched me pour that?"

I replied that "I hadnt been watching her" and "I did ask for a half"

I told her "i'd leave it then" and promptly left the establishment with the sound of this barmaid berating me to the very cliquey locals.

Absolutely wonderful customer service. Not.

It's probably a nice friendly pub if you happen to be a Scouser from Hoylake. If not, i'd avoid.

Visited with friends the other night. Had a few pints of Peerless "Hilbre Gold" which was on good form.

Good, traditional backstreet local, with a pleasant outdoor drinking area out the door and across the little side street. Looks like an old fishing inn outside and in - the main bar has a stone-flagged area round the bar and a carpeted area with tables. Lovely traditional, separate snug with small serving hatch. Lots of photos of the place over the years, old pictures of fishermen etc and of course being Hoylake, lots of the various lifeboats. Hard to find if you're passing through as it's in the warren of streets that's marketed as 'old Hoylake', between the main drag and the beach.

Real ale pub and only Hoylake pub in the current GBG. Bombardier and Spitting Feathers ever-present, Copper Dragon, Tim Taylors, Betwixt recent guests. Lots of real ale drunk here. But for those of a certain age, seeing keg Trophy is a blast from the past!

A very nice pub indeed, a genuine local where all the community drinks.

Oh, and it does food with the Sunday lunch being popular

Note: during Mon-Fri it doesn't open 'till 2.00pm (stays open 'till 12 midnight mind....)
