user reviews of the Ridger, Wirral

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

Todays Liverpool Daily Post reports that this pub was the scene of a 'huge brawl' on Saturday night in which, amongst other things, a man had part of his ear bitten off. Still not tempted to go in...........

The faded pub signs have finally been replaced!
Still not tempted to go in though.

Apparently closed for a long overdue refurb.

I don't know why you call your self "Wirral Drinker"? Its obvious most of your "reviews" are done from behind your keyboard. You want to get out more mate.

pompoustyskie - my instincts regarding the Ridger were correct then!

We visited this pub recently and for the first time in my life had to return a meal unfinished. The vegetables had been reheated and the fish was certainly not 'salmon supreme' The service was poor and we will not be returning. I had made a booking for a walking group of 25 for lunch in the near future, this has now been cancelled.

Unlike 'wirraldrinker' I decided to give this place the courtesy of a visit before I offered a "review". Situated between West Kirby & Greasby this is not easy to include on a pub crawl. Unremarkable & souless looking 70's building it is not helped by bare, concrete drinking area infront of the main entrance. Inside is deceptively large & open plan only broken up by partitioning & the split level area at the rear & the right. Faux wooden beams add to the tackiness of this place which struck me as being a clique. I can't really think of any reason to want to visit here. There seems to be heavy emphasis on food as most of the right side of the pub is mainly a dedicated dining area which was virtually empty on my visit. Up the steps to the back the ceiling is noticeably higher & I think is used for bands, disco's etc. Period pictures of horses, ships & sports - a real mix & match theme. Beer wise Bombadier on draught which was well served. Don't think I will be back in a hurry, but at least I bothered to properly review it which I believe is in the true spirit of this site.

I haven't been to this pub since it opened in the 1970's. The only thing I remember about it is that it had raised seating areas.
I passed it this week and noticed that paint was peeling from the exterior and the pub sign was so bleached and weather-beaten that I could no longer make out the ploughing scene which used to be depicted. (a ridger is a type of plough)
As this pub is at least a mile from any other it will never be on one of my pub crawls and even if it were, it would need smartening up before I might be tempted in.
