Looks like could be being demolished (scaffold, roof off, total demolition signs). But nothing is coming up on the council's planning website when searching by postcode? (CH44 5SN)

When Bidston Dock & the West Float were busy with shipping & sailors, the Pool Inn was a meeting place for "Night Fighters" of the commercial & female type.

Oh what a shame, I noticed that it had been borded up for a while.
What a lovely building it was and not so long ago either.
