We were advised to visit the Philarmonic, by a tour guide, but found it a little disappointing. The interior is well worth a look. Very ornate. The Gents is decorated in amazing pink marble wall and wash basins. When unoccupied, ladies are allowed to visit. Two small snugs off the bar area. We were ushered into a larger room, which... More

We visited for a meal with four friends prior to taking the 'shiverpool' walking tour. Service was friendly and efficient and the food was ok - Sea Bass, Mash Potato and Green vegetables. The meal was not particularly hot although the apple crumble dessert was!). This was my first visit and the splendour of the historic decor was eye catching.... More

On a dark and stormy Saturday night we stumbled out of a cab and saw the ornate gothic exterior of The Philharmonic Dining Rooms otherwise known as "The Phil" pub. Inside did not disappoint; a good selection of beers pleased my husband and I had a Guinness in the comfortable Brahms lounge. The pub was busy and we felt all... More

I visited The Philharmonic with my mother at lunchtime today. I had a glass of wine and she had a cup of tea and the service we received was excellent. The barman was also very helpful towards some youngsters in fancy dress who were clearly on a scavenger hunt even though they didn't make a purchase. We sat in the... More

Was very disappointed with the resturant after the initial impression of the bar down stairs. Food was okay but not all that tastey and barely anyone in there, which really drained the atmosphere, we had our drinks forgotten as well which considering how dead it was was a shame.

I took Two Friends to the Phil..To look at the architecture and sample the excellent culinary delights,,An amazing interior...looks totally unchanged from how I remember many years ago....The Beer was I think a little expensive however the interior and the value of the food made up for any cost implications..Take a look as We did and experience a look back...

Take a walk along Hope street and you'll come across a building called the philharmonic,what ever you do don't walk passed it. Step inside and you'll think you've walked into a stately home honestly you will stand back in amazement and compleatly ignore that fact that there's a bar just to your left because you'll be looking everywhere but the...
