The Hesketh Arms
Botanic Road, Southport, Merseyside, PR9 7NA 01704 509548
We’ve got everything you need from a country pub near you.
As one of the longest established pubs in the area, locals have enjoyed coming to the Hesketh Arms (previously known as the Black Bull) for over 200 years. Guests from local towns such as Ormskirk and Formby have returned time and time again, looking to unwind in historic settings after busy days visiting Southport's thriving shopping and entertainment attractions.
Our menus are full of hearty favourites and country pub classics, including our steak & mushroom pie and beer-battered fish and chips. Why not try some of our new seasonal dishes like Asparagus & ricotta ravioli or Roasted Salmon with vine tomatoes & pesto.
We look forward to welcoming you, and we’ll ready with a well-stocked bar, including cask ales, lager, fine wines, British gin and soft drinks to suit every taste — which will taste all the better when enjoyed in our beautiful and picturesque gardens.
Conveniently sited for lively Southport, The Hesketh Arms has been offering a warm welcome since the 18th century. Overlooking the grounds of 12th century Meols Hall, it is also close to the fascinating Botanic Gardens.
There’s more to The Hesketh Arms than just great food and drink.
Did you know that if you’re a CAMRA member you can enjoy 20p off any pint of cask ale?
