Makes me wonder who would want to sit in a beer garden at the back of the Shamrock.
Almost constantly ' under new management' these days, this pub has tremendous potential if it offered some alternative to the current pub scene elsewhere.
I went up to ' The Screen and Zombie' the other night and barely spoke to a soul .
Whistle blows. Pub empties. Something different please new landlord.
The Seven Stars was once a common name for inns and pubs. There was a Seven Stars on Eaves Lane in Chorley, complete with a sign showing the stars behind the Virgin Mary as Queen of Heaven, Star of the Sea.
A more evocative name than The Shamrock!
Thanks for the photo David.
Gary, there used to be two 'Stars' in Standish, now there are none. This one and The New Seven Stars a mile down the road towards Coppull which is now an Italian restaurant called The Olive Garden, but it still bears the original pub name at the top of the façade, as they say 'carved in stone', but in this case brick.
"Just like the leaves
on each shamrock I see,
there are three parts
To the Holy Trinity
First is God the Father
Then Jesus His only Son,
and the Holy Spirit
together is One.... "
At school in St Patrick's we were told the story of the Saint and the symbol of the shamrock. We were given bunches of the plant on March 17th every year.
Went in there recently, worst beer served! Wont venture there again, wiped my shoes on way out .
Shamrock a sprig.
Roy - I'd forgotten the other one, up the A49. Been in there once, 1969, for a pint.
Is the Italian restaurant any good?
Gary,it is brilliant, great atmosphere great food. Been there 5 or 6 times.
There was an Old Seven Stars Inn opposite the New Stars in the 19th C. It used to be Cyril Hatton's farm and is now an equestrian centre. 3 Stars in total.
