I think these may be two different pubs, where the 1st pic one (The Leasowe Hotel at the junction of Reeds Lane and Leasowe Road)may have been knocked down and a new one built further up Reeds Lane near to Leasowe Station with similar architecture (140 Reeds Lane)

The 1861 census records the The Leasowe Hotel followed by Reeds Lane.
The 1911 directory records it as, Leasowe Castle Buffet, Thomas Hill, Proprietor.

If the Wallasey Pubs History is correct,(link above) knocked down and rebuilt, the 1938 directory shows the Castle Buffet and The Travellers Rest, so perhaps not exactly on the same site but close.

From your link

On Reeds Lane once stood the Leasowe Hotel. The Pub opened in 1850 with Lewis Beausine as the first landlord. By 1935 the old Pub was demolished and a new one built called the Traveller's Rest after it took its name from the Traveller's Rest in Wallasey Village which had previously closed. The new Pub was built in a Tudor style with rustic, narrow bricks and reconstructed portland stone. twisted chimneys with green Westmoreland slate.

It looks like the original Pub was in Leasowe Road until 1933/34 and then demolished and a new one built further along Reeds Lane.

If so the address for the 1st pic as posted by Upton is wrong.

Would like to see maps of those areas early 1930s to check if the Leasowe road Pub was still on.

I think you'll find that the two pictures are actually of the same Pub, just taken from different angles. Both show the 1930s Travellers Rest in Reeds Lane, which was later renamed as the Leasowe Hotel.

The original Leasowe Hotel on Leasowe Road, as your map clearly shows, was not on the corner of Reeds Lane, but some distance to the west of it. This hotel appears to have been heavily altered at some point before 1899 and transformed into a private residence named Leasowebank. The house was still standing when the land surrounding it was purchased by the Liverpool Invalid Children's Association in 1913 for the construction of their new open-air Sanatorium. It can be clearly seen in the artist's impression of the new hospital below, to the right of the main admin block, but appears to have been demolished when the main hospital buildings were extended at some point before 1935.

The area was called "Leasowebank" before the large house called Leasowe Bank was built. Mr Webster who owned Leasowe Bank bought the Overchurch Wirral Ruinic Stone (and other materials) when the church was knocked down around 1887 and kept it in his coach house.

However I don't think Leasowe Bank was built up until the hospital moved there because the 1910 maps don't show the large building beside the hotel but just some buildings a bit further inland.

The Leasowe CASTLE hotel is opposite the end of Reeds Lane at the junction with Leasowe Road where it's stood since 1560 (?). The Leasowe Hotel was on Reeds Lane between the entrance to Manor Bakeries & Leasowe Station. Big block of flats there now .We had a few celebrations in the Leasowe Hotel which was said to be haunted by a ghost called Amy (?) The Pearsall family were the last licensees before it closed

According to local newspapers the Leasowe Hotel on Leasowe Road was opened in 1840 by Louis (or Lewis) Bussard, a Swiss-born gent who had been employed by Colonel Edward Cust to manage Leasowe Castle, which had been converted into a hotel in 1828 - see cutting below. It appears that the Leasowe Castle Hotel was not a great success so Colonel Cust decided to close it and turn it into private lodgings, at which point Mr Bussard decided to build a new hotel on the opposite side of Leasowe Road on land that he leased from Thomas Webster. Colonel Cust himself took up residence at Leasowe Castle in 1843, and lived there off and on until his death in 1878.

The lease of the Leasowe Hotel was sold to a new tenant, Benjamin Hornby, in 1859, and he ran it until 1873 when it appears he was declared bankrupt. According to newspaper reports, at this point Mr Webster, the owner of the hotel requested that the licence be revoked as he intended to convert the building into a private residence. This house, named Leasowe Bank or Leasowebank, stood until about 1927, when permission was granted for an extension to be added to the main block of the Leasowe Open-Air Children's Hospital.
