Southport Old Road, Formby, Liverpool L37 0AB
This utterlycharming and very pretty restored countryside house and now gastro pub and inviting restaurant is set amongst 5 acres of lush green woodlands and a beautiful sea of bright Bluebells, the perfect jewel in the crown of the Merseyside countryside and only a 10 minutes car ride (max) from the beautiful beaches at both Formby and Fresh fields.
The Sparrowhawk, now beautifully restored back to its former glory, there’s outside seating and eating areas, gorgeous light filled conservatories, real log fires and a quirky collection of both antique and contemporary furnishing throughout this generous sized establishment.
Think lived in armchairs, vintage book collections, retro lampshades, original old pictures, paintings, photographs and road signs and there you have it, the scene is set, contemporary country with a lived in feel.
With a varied menu from a la carte to Traditional Sunday Roasts (that are huge!) there’s something for everyone, and the wine and beer lists are not bad either
This is a wonderfully relaxed establishment, full of character and in a very beautiful and relaxing setting, they even have an old vintage tractor you can sit on and double swings, of course!
