This was a favorite hang-out for the Beatles and many other rock bands, which also served as a safe haven from their screaming teenage fans.

As other reviewers have stated, this is one of the places the Beatles drank in their Liverpool years. The entire pub is decorated in Beatles memorabilia. A good selection of cask ales, at typical city centre prices. Can be crowded even during the day as it seems to draw a mix of both locals and tourists. I'll certainly stop in... More

The original Pub where The Beatles used to have their pints before and after the Cavern(they did not sell beer in The Cavern back then). Make sure to walk around, you can see pictures of them sitting in the very same places you will be sitting in (walk towards the end of the Pub for this). I came on a... More

There was a fantastic DJ doing his thing and we were there at 3 in the afternoon. Lots of real mod 60's music we loved it. Good value for money. We had between 2 of us 4 drinks and 2 meals for less than £15.. We only left because it was time to go get changed for the evening
