Pub of the Year - Liverpool City Region - Tourism Awards 2023

A massive thank you to all our customers and crew as it is everyone who makes this such a great place to spend a few hours, whichever side of the bar you're on.

Here's to a great 2024.


The Red Fox is a large brick and sandstone building built in the second half of the 19th century.

Within we have many spacious, airy rooms, and plenty more intimate nooks and crannies to nestle away in if you're so inclined. Open fires abound throughout, with wooden floors, an attractive collection of rugs and plants, and lots of good old furniture. We like to think we are a pub with real character.

To the rear of the pub we have extensive raised terraces which overlook the landscaped lawns and countryside beyond. It'll be a wonderful spot to dine in the sunshine from our seasonal, fresh menus made up of a mixture of hearty British classics and lighter lunchtime bites.

We look forward to welcoming you
David and the Red Fox team.

We are delighted to have received some auspicious awards: To have been listed as one of the 'Top 10 Whisky Pubs' in the 2018 Good Pub Guide Awards and we've recently been named Wirral CAMRA - 'Pub of the Year 2023' and Merseyside & Cheshire CAMRA Regional ‘Cider Pub Of The Year 2023’ as well as recently being awarded Wirral CAMRA - ‘Cider Pub of the Year 2024’.
