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.

What can you say about the grapes - great history, atmospheric, great staff and a fab karaoke. No matter what time of day or night you go its always very busy and its on the small size so you can feel a bit squashed. The toilets are rubbish 2 for women and again so small. You won't get posh cocktails... More

A good atmosphere somewhat spoiled by the barman's rude manner telling people coming into the bar with children "KIDS NOT ALLOWED" in a loud rude manner, seen this 3 times in less than an hour.

It's the pub the Beatles drank in, obviously Beatles memorabilia on the walls. Still just a normal old style pub.

We went to this pub, purely to go see where the Fab Four enjoyed a pint when performing at The Cavern. Awesome 60's pub, still largely unchanged. We all sat in the very seat the where the most famous pic of the Beatles was taken of them, and enjoyed a pint or 2 ourselves. Fantastic atmosphere. We decided to stay... More

Went with my sister and friend, I went to the bar whilst they found seats. A group of girls were leaving so they sat down , paid for the drinks and sat down with them. The pot man can over to collect the glasses, my sister tried to help by picking up a coke bottle on floor and put it... More
