    2 of those look like the same person on a quick detailed analysis, we could probably work it all with a bit of effort to try and see if the third was as well. From the information we have it is probably the family who own the pub going through their members.

    It is a bit blatant so I think let it ride for now, I am always worried that if we clamp down on those they may start to try (and even worse succeed) to outwit us.

    I suppose every pub must have a couple. Nice to see the landlady a) declaring herself as such and b) posting some photos.

    Then again there are alot of people who are easily pleased. Never rated anywhere ,be it a pub or otherwise, 10 in my life. May be it is a reflection onthe sort of places I visit ?

    And easily displeased

    Two tens and a one. All what somewhere else we might have called Steak House In The Evening reviews. The slagging off ones always seem to appear on a Monday after the author and her (it's usually her) in-laws have had a bad time with their Brake Bros Sunday lunch.

    No idea which review is correct, all are one time posters. For me I would go with last [bad] review, pub may have changed hands for instance

    Not sure what a Brake Bros Sunday lunch is, but if someone, male or female, has a bad experience then surely it is their right to say so in no uncertain terms, and up to "Brake Bros Sunday lunch" or similar to use the comment as an opportunity to improve and gain more satisfied customers

    I think many UK businesses see complaints as just whinging instead of a customer based quality control pointing out problems that should be rectified

    I also quite like the initial review where the ever so satisfied one time visitor just happens to know the pub phone number off the top of his head.

    Well, this would have been a success if they hadn't overdone it just a tiny bit. The bit from landlady Ms Fay is quite interesting but the one hit wonders just make me reach for the sick bag, are they staff or friends of the landlady? Helen Cooper was obviously a bit late in the rush getting to the PC. I was especially amused by the "real cream of Liverpool" comment, in a city with such delights as the Philly, the Belvedere, Fly in the Loaf, Rigbys, Ship and Mitre etc etc etc etc; well let's just say someone should get out more. I'm standing by my review which I hope conveys the ordinariness of this pub.
    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    Apologies to Spike Milligan

    Eugh, thanks for the heads up,ob. Not that I ever get even close to L'pool, but these things are always nice to know..........
    Pubs are a hobby, real ale is a passion. Oh, and like me dogs, fear no evil..........
