Does anyone know when this pub (present building) was built?

No but there has been a pub there for a long time. I think one landlord was once accused (convicted?) of killing a customs man. In the days of cutlasses and flintlocks I assume? Might be way off base but possibly the victim was disappeared on Bidston Moss?

Own fault really as customs should keep their noses out of the Wallasey smuggling and wrecking company (Ltd).

It was there in 1842 so possibly earlier.

Doubt many ships could of fitted in the Pool at that time! Many pubs often had a naval theme. Some named after famous admirals or battles.

My father in law has just taken over the ship. They have a new menu and chef for weekend food. Give it a try!
