Spent a little time in this unique pub before taking catching our train home. It is definitely worth a trip to see the stained glass, wood panelling, mosaic floors and very decorative ceilings. Apart from that the service is good as is the food.

You've GOT to actually visit this amazing pub to believe how amazingly glorious it it! Its a complete architectural delight and the atmosphere is fab. Best at lunchtime as can be very crowded in the evening.

As Richard M States in his review in Aprill 2015 watch your change. I gave a £20 note in and got change from £10, when asking for correct change was met by extremely hostile manner from girl behind bar, her defensive and overall attitude makes me think she has done this before. Allegedly money put in wrong drawer, if I'd... More

We were told by friends to give the Philharmonic Pub a look especially the gents with the marble urinals, it's a lovey pub with small snugs with names on them, good bar area with a large choice of beer on tap, we had a drink but didn't bother with any food, it is well worth a visit even to view...

Make sure you pop into this historic building. A real gem of a place. The interior is stunning and the Gent's is a real throwback to Victorian times. very interesting and not a bad pint either!

This place is worth a visit. The architecture, including the men's toilets is exceptional. It is not a bad pub but not the best in the city. Definitely pop in for a quick drink and to look at amazing interior of this building. If you are a woman asked behind the bar for a tour of the men's toilets which... More
