A little pub history
Thought to be about 200 years old, earliest records show The Punch Bowl to be the only pub in the village in 1824. The grounds of the building stand on the original Grand National Steeplechase course and provided the meeting place for the 18th Century social club, 'Mock Corporation of Sefton' who claimed their charter was granted by William the Conqueror.
Make a day of it
The Punchbowl is the ideal place to enjoy great pub fare before exploring delightful local nature trails and heading to the beach at Crosby to see Antony Gormley's enigmatic sculpted iron figures looking out to sea.
