About 200 years old, built on the old Grand National Steeplechase Course, The Punchbowl in Merseyside is traditional country pub, offering well-loved British cuisine in an eye-catching setting. Views of the patterned, red-brick exterior and ancient, imperious Sefton Parish Church can be enjoyed from the al fresco beer garden. The ornate hearth-fire also warms interior dining in winter.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Punchbowl menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Punchbowl ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

The Punchbowl in Lunt is just 6 minutes’ drive from Maghull, or 20 minutes into Liverpool.

    I love the punchbowl. Its location is beautiful and the pub itself has a lot of interesting history. The food never disappoints and we love coming here as a family.

    I had the Sea Bass and my girlfriend had the Roast Beef. The meals were very well presented and they looked as good as they tasted. The staff were very friendly and never pestered us like some restaurants do. Overall this restaurant is excellent for value and we will be dining there again.

    Good poor quality. Triple cooked chips were just oven chips. Few chips literally thrown on plate with ham & an egg. Sweet potato chips were burnt. Just overall disappointed with quality of food

    Been here a few times before and since relocating over this way (Aintree) from a more rural location this is one of only a handful of places that have the same feeling of the countryside. My wife loved my old haunts hence the Punchbowl has become a firm favourite of our, what with the lovely setting and the roaring log fire!!!!!!!!!!! Oh hang on. Arriving with snow flurries in the air it was a shame that we were placed in "the back room" which was not really a bad point, it would of been lovely if the fire had been roaring away, instead it was a tad chilly!! The food and service was very good as usual, no complains there, just why no warmth, disappointing but will summer
