We ran a fairly intimate family party around 50 guests. Treated absolutely fantastic by all the staff at Ma Boyles. We had our own barman for the night who was superb a real credit to the team there. Venue is fantastic really smart and cool, We were catered for down to a tee. Would highly highly recommend

Really enjoyed meal and drinks, though we had a little mix up over our jug of rose sangria ( one was red as expected, but one came which was orange, luckily it was changed for us). Service was great, nice to sit at decent table over Christmas. It was busy but we weren’t hurried. Definitely book again

The food/experience could not have been any worse. 1 order came out incorrect (Chicken burger presented as opposed to the bacon and cheese burger ordered) There was no offer to take it back, just a shrug of the shoulder and "I thought thats what you said sorry" 1 scouse had to go back as it had no meat in and replaced - no offer to take off the bill and still paid full price. The pieces of bread that came with the scouse were stale an hard. The portion sizes of the scouse in comparison to the prices charge were borderline ridiculous. All 3 who ordered it had to go to Bite to get something extra when we left. (It was £8.50 for a bowl that a toddler would eat and half of that was filled with water) The 3 fish and chips were tasteless and like eating cardboard. The only meal that came out with a remotely positive comment was the bangers and mash. We work in Mersey Chamber's and came for our Christmas meal which come to £160 for 9 people and the overwhelming comment as we left was "I wouldn't go back if someone else paid for us". We didn't even get asked if the food was OK at any point!? Such a shame as the place has a nice atmosphere but the price compared to portion sizes and the quality of food is the worst we have ever experienced and we go to a different place each month as a team. Worst bit is when we have come back to the office, everyone we have spoken to has mentioned they have horror stories about eating there aswell ranging from the food coming out late and being given vouchers to go back, to burgers coming out that didnt look like they were made for the same bun as they were tiny, to pies coming out with virtually no meat inside them and having to be sent back. It has become apparent quite apparent that this was not an isolated incident and as alluded to above, is such as shame as the place has potential.
