He's certainly made a good start with an interesting selection of real beers, rather than going for the usual 'guests' that unimaginative pubs tend to plump for. I'll keep you informed of any further developments. (postcode: L39 7JP)

Ship in Haskayne reopens
Roving reporter Bernie tells me he has recently been to the reopened Ship Inn at Haskayne. For those who don't know it, the Ship is an old canal-side pub, just off the A5147 between Scarisbrick and Maghull and about 8 miles from the centre of Southport, noted in the past for food as well as real ale. The new landlord is keen to reinstate the Folk singaround that took place on Thursdays for many years, and he also has had experience with open mic nights. The beers on offer when Bernie visited were Southport Sandgrounder and Golden Sands, along with the Warwickshire brewery's Ffiagra, and Theakston's mild.
