user reviews of the Royal Tavern, St Helens

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

This place appears to be Irish owned. The music was booming as I entered last night. After fighting through the crowd of smokers at the entrance, I managed to enter a fairly busy and lively pub, full of middle aged people dancing to the music. There's still no real ales - just the standard keg range of Fosters, Tetleys, Carling, John Smiths, Strongbow, Guinness & Coors Light. There was a slight smell of stale urine at the bar. After sitting down for a while to soak it all in, I very swiftly moved on, safe in the knowledge that my short visit to the Royal at least allowed me to fit a couple more St Helens pubs in.

Now revamped again. The Bureau clean and clinical, all the old has gone along with the real ale. The heart has been ripped out with the character.. shame

Large, town centre boozer that made the GBG in 2009 but has since closed and reopened the new emphasis seems t be on bands and music. It occupies a street corner and has 2 enormous-feeling rooms, a games room and a lounge. These rooms are spartanly furnished with few tables, and slightly careworn, as one would expect from a music pub, which adds to the cavernous atmosphere.
The windows around the pub are impressive and feature some fine stained and leaded glass, which gives some character to the place. The games room has a pool table and both rooms have Sky Sports News. Visited in an afternoon so the place was pretty empty.
On the beer front, Deuchars and Brains Bitter were available for my visit, Brains being the better-kept of the two.
It's not a bad place and has a few noteworthy points but doesn't really rival the Turks' Head as the must-visit pub in this town.
