|The Park in Birkdale|
The Park is popular for food; they do reasonably priced meals until 10pm every night, and have a children's menu. There is a large beer garden to the front of the pub, a car park to the side, a covered smoking area and a dog bar for man's thirsty best friend. Dogs are allowed in a designated area indoors. Also inside are pool tables, darts, large wall TVs and WiFi.
Each night has a different theme. Monday is poker night, Tuesday darts, and Wednesdays Spice Club (curry night) and a quiz. On Thursdays they offer 10% off cask beers, Friday is Fizz Night with offers on certain sparkling wines, and Saturday is dedicated to sport. On Sunday you can try their roast dinners. I also saw a notice advertising a Motown Night on the last Friday of the month, so overall there's plenty to choose from.
The pub is at 36 Weld Road, Southport, PR8 2ED; telephone 01704 569941. Website here, and they are on Facebook. It opens at 11am every day except Sunday (midday), closing at 11pm every night except Saturday and Sunday (midnight). Birkdale railway station is a minute's walk away and the 49 and the X2 buses stop nearby.
