The Park is one of those stately old grandiose manor sort of building housing a pub as can be found all over the shop nationwide. Anybody who's ever spent anything approaching a stretch of time within a place such as this will know it to be of the most warming and welcoming of establishments in any town.
Such is the case here. It's nice to have a place in Birkdale where you can clutch heartily a pint rather than sip delicately from a glass of wine.
Solid, unpretentious, undemanding, indispensable.
Amongst the swanky wine bars that occupy Birkdale village, the Park Hotel is closer to your typical drinking establishment.
Sat almost right next Birkdale train station, as with many of the local boozers, the Park is a great place to go for a few pints before hopping on the train but caters more for the drinker who prefers a traditional, cosy pub to drink in rather than the other bars immediately around him.
The pub itself is quite large in size and has the all the usual suspects available on draught as well as a selection of real ales and guest ales, all at a reasonable price. They also do a range of pub food which although is nothing original is good quality nonetheless, including a Sunday roast every weekend.
Entertainment-wise, the Park Hotel screens all the big sporting fixtures on a large screen, as well as having darts and pools tables for those of you who have short attention spans. The weekly quiz night is another string in its bow also.
A nice change from the other bars that are in Birkdale village for those of you that don't fancy mixing up with Birkdale's 'It' crowd.
