Attended for a family meal. Food expensive but nice. Rows and rows of keg and Eurofizz pumps but only one ale - Doombar.

Went past today and noticed that the roof was being re-thatched. Nice to see.

This is part of a chain - M&B's Premium Country Dining Group.

I think this place is pretty good actually. The two ales on the other day - the predictable Taylors Landlord and Adnams Broadside - were both very good, though of course Taylors anywhere outside of Keighley to someone like me who grew up drinking it on home soil, is not the same. There is also a wider selection of imported draft beers, standard lagers and stout, plus a comprehensive wine list.

Pub is thatched and sits rather incongrously on a massive roundabout just south of Heswall - getting out the car park can be a nightmare. There is a drinking area outside and as you enter, though it has to be said that unlike say Harts Boatyard (another in the group near where we used to live in the Surbiton area), this place has more tables for diners. The food is good - we had lunch - and a cut above the usual fare to a degree. My wife's whole lemon sole was lovely; my veal OK, but I wish I'd had the sole! We found the staff chatty, very pleasant, well-trained and efficient. It's the sort of place for a 'lazy lunch'. Couple of sharpeners to start you off, two or three courses with a bottle or two, a stiffener for the walk home and that's 4 hours well spent.

Yes, I rather like it here

Considering that the DD is primarily a restaurant it has a pretty good bar. On a visit today they had 2 real ales on: the ubiquitous Timothy Taylor's Landlord which was on reasonable form but pricey at 2.95, and Weetwood Old Dog bitter - a better pint and 25p cheaper. I've drunk worse quality beer in Good Beer Guide pubs so, price aside, I thought that the experience was quite a positive one.

One of a chain of 40 pubs but I've been unable to discover what the company is called.
At the side of a main road, opposite the Glegg Arms.
Attracts lots of passing trade.
Car park at rear. Beer garden at the front.
Mostly an eating place.
Expensive. Pretty unimaginative drinks selection.
I wouldn't bother if you are just a drinker.
