An eye-catching, solid, sandstone-block built old miller’s cottage (the windmill was demolished in 1898, the pub opened in 1980) just a short jog from the airy heights of Thurstaston Common at the heart of The Wirral Peninsula. One of the area’s best choices of real ales meets an exceptional, very pubby menu strong on Wirral produce – ‘Muffs’ sausage and mash comes with black pudding, peas, mushrooms, gravy and onion rings and could be followed by Nicholls of Parkgate ice cream or Belgian waffles. Popular with ramblers and Sunday diners, there’s a suntrap grassy garden for summer; a log fire for the winter.
