Situated in a dense area of semi-detached houses in the town of Maghull this is no less busy than the town and city centre Wetherspoon pubs. This one is named after the children’s toy inventor and is plastered with monuments of his work including pictures and posters of miniature train models and monuments to mechano. The general decor is traditional, but with a more modern touch than some older pubs in this chain. Children are allowed and there is a large patio out front next to the car park. The usual selection of rotating real ales and food applies.
