the deed is done in the asking


As a matter of interest what is the barber part
Do you have a pint whilst getting your hair cut

Barbers is in the back where there is a raised area, I think food used to be served there, you can have a pint while your waiting for a haircut or after or as is happening on a Saturday morning stick your kids in the queue and go and have a pint!( no kids allowed in bar area)You may end up with more than you bargained for if you try and drink while getting your hair done(soggy bits of hair in your pint is no good even if it is real ale)

I hope the barber isn't allowed to drink

First class bar, looks just like a pub should do (to those of a certain age) Franky & Sue both cut hair & Franky does hot towel shaving as well. My baldy mate had a good trim, from Sue, then we both had several pints of good beer.
The bar is decorated with all sorts of military objets & pictures as Franky is ex Irish Guards. It also has a beer garden.
Definitly going again & will even take "she who must be obeyed" next time & it is even dog friendly!

Sounds like it's got all the makings of what a "proper" pub should be ! The combination of a barber's and liquid refreshment is a brilliant idea.

Bert's comment about the barber not being allowed to drink brings to mind that classic Python sketch... Shave, blood, cut, spurt, court case.....etc.

It's on the list for my next visit to the Wirral.

Best of luck Sue & Frank.

Had a few pints of "Trappers" here yesterday & a good haircut. Sue gave my mate & I the conducted tour of the premises & we lent on the bar from the Pool Inn as it was being fixed in place in the new function room.
We also looked in all the rooms all the way up to the top floor. Amazing -- untouched for many years. Now need to check out the cellar for any bricked up passages???

Well done indeed. When back on the Wirral in March for the History Festival, a few of us imbibed in a liquid lunch in Gallaghers.
Most impressed by the choice of good beers and the friendly service!

Keep up the good work !!
