I thought the food was excellent, good selection and some great vegetarian options. The service was also first class, with a great atmosphere. I would highly recommend the Viking to all of my friends and colleagues.

Very slow service (and we don't like to be rushed) thought it was a bit more sticky pub than was expecting ..disappointed, one meal came out very late, pizza and it was very soggy, my Spanish chicken was extremely salty

This is our 7th or 8th visit to the Viking and we have to say the last few visits have not been the best and our recent visit was very poor indeed. Where do we start. Waited 10 mins before front of house came to seat us at our table. Wife had vegan nut roast which was tiny, the rest of us had meaty Sunday roast. The roast potatoes really dry, flourly and undercooked, ie not crispy enough on the outside. Not enough gravy for the large delicious Yorshire puds. Beer and wine ordered not available, but beer clearly advertised on the world beer chalk board. Waitress said they have not stocked Einstock for a few months now. Ordered sparking water, which didn't arrive so had to take it off the bill. The kids love the brownie and ice cream, which we have always swapped to sorbet, but no sorbet. Orange Valencia Gin expensive and not a patch on the Gin bar in Liverpool. Was there any Gin or Orange/Grapefruit in ? It was my son's 10th Birthday, we forgot to mention at time of booking, but we brought along balloons, but no recognition from the staff at all. We had previously visited on his 8th Birthday and at other times and then the staff where amazing, gave them complimentary dime bars. (It's the little things) So to sum up, we are alarmed at how bad this pub has declined as our first few experiences were exceptional. My recommendation for a great pub meal these days would be , Jug and Bottle in Heswall or the the Fox and Hounds in Barnston. Both hands down better in hospitality and quality of food. I also want to point out it was 5:15 on a Sunday and the pub was more then half empty. So no excuses really. No doubt this will be just be ignored and if in the paper days put in the bin. I will be be posting this this on social media, so Simon, CHEERS. (Ironic smile for Tim) for your CH4 show. If only we could have posted the video cheers we made. Cheers Darren Recommends : https://the-jugandbottle.co.uk https://the-fox-hounds.co.uk as we won't be back.

Hi we are regular visitors and after a disappointing Christmas Day meal for my family I returned anyway but then I came for my birthday Sunday 19th May and I think that will be our last Sunday visit. Service was really slow having to ask for menus 15 minutes after being seated, drinks taking ages to come just seeing them sat at the end of the bar with no one to serve them. I get that things can get busy but it wasn’t at that time the place was not full then our dinner was again a disappointment. The roast potatoes we’re rock solid non of my children could eat them and the grey had a chalk taste it wasn’t dissolved properly. Such a shame as we have been coming here the last couple of years. Hopefully new management can get this place back on track. Kind regards sophia

We had to ask for water three times before we actually received it. Our food came separately, we could see the other two dishes sitting on the kitchen shelf waiting to be picked up while members of our party waited. We had to ask our server to go and collect it. We asked for the bill and received it and then had to wait a very long time for the server to return to take our payment. It got to the point where we could have left without paying and it wouldn't have been noticed. (Of course we would never have done that.)

We had an 80th birthday meal. Fantastic food, service and such a great atmosphere. Staff were so welcoming and helpful. This has got to be in my top 5 of favourite places to eat and drink. I would recommend to give it a go if you haven't been before as this was my first time and I will be returning in the near future.

We can't thank you enough for the fantastic evening we had at the viking for my husbands 40th birthday. The food was amazing. Every single member of our group (including 3 fussy kids) thoroughly enjoyed our meals. I particularly want to say that the service went above and beyond to ensure we all had a great night. Abby and the young man who looked after us were really lovely and made us all feel welcome. We all can't wait to come back again soon.

Service staff were nice, polite and attentive. Wild boar Bolognese was really tasty as was the Spicy chicken burger, however the chicken was covered in far too much batter/breadcrumb, and there were parts that where purely batter/breadcrumb. The manager leaving one of the doors open meant we were sat in a very cold draft.
