Review: Beefeater, Glegg Arms - Heswall

Were really excited to be invited to the Glegg Arms in Heswall, Merseyside to have some dinner with the kids and spend some quality time. We love half term - it's our family time together and life seems to slow its pace a little bit - which is great when you have so many things on like me! We like taking the kids out to eat so we were really looking forward to this.

Beefeater restaurants are really child-friendly and this one was no different. We took all three kids and chose our food.

The menu was really varied with plenty to choose from and the kids menu made it really easy for us. Alice LOVES pasta, so macaroni cheese was the natural choice for her with garlic bread, which she also enjoys. Emily had the steak burger with chips - these were both off the kids' menu. They were very generous portion sizes, so we had more than enough food. We didn't order Rosie anything - we usually do - but they were both still getting over the Chicken Pox and Rosie wasn't eating very well, so she shared Alice's and stole some chips from Emily.

I chose the smothered chicken and Warren had the mixed grill. The food looked great and tasted great. Portion sizes were just enough and they did a lovely home made coleslaw which I loved. Warren's mixed grill was lovely too - I admit to stealing a bit of his steak to try - it was yummy!

The kids *ahem* also had a massive chocolate sundae between them. OK, OK. I had *a bit.*

I really loved the space that they have in there too. The kids *sometimes* like to do a runner, and this wasn't a problem because there was the space to do it. Rosie was being a little bit naughty as well, she kept running away from the table, but it wasn't a problem. One of the ladies brought them some balloons out and they had their colouring books to keep them entertained. They also have a play area for children outside. However, we didn't get a chance to go there because time was ticking on and the temperature had really dropped. I thought it best to keep the kids indoors, especially with them just getting over the Pox!

Overall, I would really recommend this restaurant. The food is good value for money, and a lot better quality than some of the cheaper 2 for 1 outlets. It cost £42 to feed the five of us, this was for two meals from the children's menu, two meals from the normal menu, a dessert and three drinks. We really enjoyed our meals and all our plates were empty except for a little bit of pasta, but I put that down to the kids still getting over their illness.

We would definitely return to the restaurant. We were made to feel really welcome by the staff - nothing was a problem and we had a really lovely afternoon.

We were sent a voucher to cover the cost of our food for the purpose of this review. All words and views are our own,


  1. I used to take my service users there as I worked about 10 mins away. They were always great with my service users and understanding if we were having a difficult day with them.
    Lovely to go over there with the family, did u see some of the houses?? I love driving around the Wirral and thinking 'if only....'

  2. We haven't been to a Beefeater in such a long time. Really must go again, your meal looks lovely! x
