We often visit the grapes as most members enjoy getting up on the karaoke and have had many good nights out in there. However , on this particular night the doormen stopped us entering and stated that we couldn't... More

Noisy and smelly,loud singers mostly out of tune. This place is in a prize location for Beatles fans but I would recommend that you steer clear of this awful place.Try the White Star just round the corner.

Had a great Sunday night in the Grapes. Staff and customers all very welcoming. Drinks are a reasonable price and entertainment was fab. The only real draw back is the toilets. There are only 2 ladies for a very busy pub and little space to re apply your lippy. Overall a good experience

Place sells flat beer. W.c stink and not clean. Tables are sticky with beer spils. Visited mid afternoon. About 6 people in bar. So plenty time to wipe tables down. My opinion. These spillages was from evening before and not just one table. Plenty of better more traditional pubs close by. If this pub was anywhere else other than matthew... More
