Went in here to meet up with some mates and get a quick pint. Beer was superb,prices for Mathew street very good and the staff are really nice. The pub in it's self is dark but this adds real atmosphere to this well known well worn pub. Location will mean you get lots of Beatle fans in here,mixed with locals.... More

We just popped in for a pint, as we have a few times over the years, before eating round the corner at the Casa Italia (fantastic cheap place by the way!) We went into the 'snug' to show our visiting uncle the memorabilia and were surprised to see a 'tour' being brought in and the original wall paper being pointed... More

The Beatles used to perform at the nearby Cavern Club which was non-alcoholic back in those days. So the boys used to nip in here for the odd pint (or whatever). Some great memorabilia on the walls and some classic photos. We enjoyed some banter with the bartender. I don't think I would eat here (if they even serve food),... More

Quick pint in here whilst out with the family, Like a Beatles museum in a pub. Decent ale and reasonable price. Worth a visit.

The Beatles used to meet here before and after performing at the Cavern Club up the lane. Beer is good, but it is shabby and unkempt. Few bits of shipyard and Beatles photos on the wall and another must if you are on the Beatles trail.

The memorabilia in the grapes is excellent, having a relaxing drink while wandering around the pub looking at all the memorabilia is very nice and you can sit in the same seat and have a drink as the Beatles did. It is a must, much better than the cavern club which serves drinks in plastic glasses and is a replica.... More

On 27th August 2014, we were out on a staff members leaving party and visited the grapes at approx 10 pm. 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
