We enjoy the atmosphere of Birkdale, especially in the summer. Brixx has several great options for veg-pizza and offers a vegan and GF version as well. We've had the vegan pizza now a couple of times and if you enjoy the taste/texture of vegan cheese then its a great option. Next time we go I think we will just order the "no cheese" pizza. Great beer choices and good service as well.
Cons: Gets very crowded, Vegan options are limited, Parking can be difficult
