Frank Hornby Pub – Maghull

I have mentioned the excellent Frank Hornby Pub in Maghull before and we had our election celebration party there a few days ago, as I reported on this blog site, but it is worth saying what a detailed and in depth job Wetherspoon’s have done to turn the former down at heel Everest Pub into a new a significant local land mark celebrating the life and works of Maghull’s world famous toy maker Frank Hornby.

If you go there have a good look around at the photo’s and artwork it is very good indeed. Here are a few shots I took in the Pub recently. With apologies for my shots not being up to Keith Page standards!

Frank Hornby Beer – what next?

I trip to Maghull’s Frank Hornby Pub with Jen the other day brought to my attention that Moorhouses are soon to brew up up a beer named after Maghull’s great toy maker’s Meccano.


Yes I know the photo is a little blurred and no this is not intended to show how difficult you would find it to focus on the pump after you had sampled this beer!

Let’s hope it is a good pint.
