Stopped off at Freshfield for a quick one here yesterday. This micropub was much busier than on my previous visit. But, it felt much more cliquey than on my previous visit. Locals seem to know one another, but weren't particularly friendly or welcoming to a stranger. Ales were 3 Piers Endeavour, Lancaster Red & Mithril Flower Power. They also had Hartland Farmhouse Perry. It's extremely handy for the station. But, there are many better micropubs in the wider area. Moved on from here to the Trap & Hatch in Waterloo, another micropub not listed on here, which was better.

Caught it open this time and it is well worth the drop by. Three ales on - a pale, a golden and a porter. Nice, convivial kind of place. Closes at 9pm. Handy for the station.

The Beer Station was the third pub and the second micropub on my mini crawl from Southport to Crosby on Saturday. It's really handy for the station. You walk off the platform and it's straight opposite. You could combine a visit to the Freshfield while here too. The Beer Station is a typical micropub with conversation dominating and 3 real ales. These were Windmill Deckhand, Liverpool Organic Mork & Parker Saxon Red Ale. The landlord was bemoaning the fact that they are so close to the station and the trains are so regular, as people rush out the door. I'd probably have stayed for another one if there'd been a real cider. But the only options were bottled ones. Nevertheless, I'm sure this place will gain far more trade from its location than it will lose.

There is only one keg lager available Freedom Authentic 4%, the other keg taps are for Freedom Prototype Pale 4.2% and King Koln (Kolsch style ale) 5%. All three from the Freedom Brewery in Staffordshire
