The new menu is now available seven days a week, until 6:30pm.

Paul Sutton, Manager of the Otters Pool said:- “We have worked hard to ensure that our new Earlybird menu provides fantastic value to guests and that we deliver the best deal in . We are delighted to be able to offer our guests a main course for just £4.99, including unlimited free salad, which is an incredible deal.”

Gerrard denies nightclub assault

THE world’s media camped out in force on Friday, 23 January 2009, as Steven Gerrard appeared at North Sefton Magistrates' Court. The Liverpool Football Captain and England player had been arrested after a disturbance at the Lounge Inn nightclub in Southport, Merseyside on 29 December 2008 and had been charged with affray and assault. Gerrard spoke only to confirm his details and indicate a not guilty plea at this appearance. Two other men, John Doran, 29, and Ian Smith, 19, both from Huyton, face the same charges. They also spoke only to confirm their names, ages and addresses and say they intended to plead not guilty. The case was adjourned until Friday 20 March, when the three men are scheduled to re-appear at the magistrates' court. All three were granted bail on the condition they did not go to the bar in which the alleged attack happened, or approach a number of prosecution witnesses.
