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.

Fun Pub

The Grapes is a great pub with some great entertainment but so badly needs cleaning up the toilets are not the best . The lack of cleanliness lets this fabulous little pub down

A great pub with real atmosphere. Would recommend a visit on a Sunday when Pete Price is doing s singalong, it's always excellent. The beer is always kept well and is reasonably priced

Sticky floor, flat beer, poor service and excessively loud music. NOT a must visit again venue!!! Iconic location, but that's the places only redeeming feature.

WE went here on the first night of our arrival in Liverpool. Such atmosphere, such friendly people. The seat where the Beatles had sat was free, so we sat there for a while and a very friendly young lady offered to take our photograph. We went back again before we left Liverpool to soak up the atmosphere

I must agree with some of the comments that the Grapes does need a major makeover. But do please go in if your a Beatles fan, go to the bar buy a small drink then go to the rear of the pub and have a look of the photos of the Beatles on the wall. The Beatles used the pub,... More

After a disappointing trek to find pubs open after 1030 on a Monday night in the centre of Liverpool we fortunately came across the Grapes and I am so glad we did, what a great pub with so much Beatles history and so busy but with great service, remember your in a pub, you'll need cash as they don't take...

Went today, Sunday afternoon. Been loads of times over the years. The smell of dirt and drains very strong. Bar staff have no customer service skills or any speed of serving customers. Will not go again until pub refurbished an brought up to date. Try somewhere else if visiting Matthew Street.
