A great "local" pub

We were lucky enough to have a local steer us to this pub. It has two floors, each with its own character. The downstairs is all pub and dark wood, while the upstairs feels more... read more

The pub is a classic and worth seeing. Not worth drinking there more than once though, a pub that sells real ale should teach its staff how to pull a pint. Got served a pint with 2mm of white bubbles on the top that tasted sour. Staff wouldn't change it. There's other places in Liverpool that serve better beer and... More

We were lucky enough to have a local steer us to this pub. It has two floors, each with its own character. The downstairs is all pub and dark wood, while the upstairs feels more like a dining room, but still has a bar set-up and the feel of an English pub. While it is a part of a chain... More

My university is located nearby, so we often pop in for a drink after lectures. If you're looking to impress visitors to Liverpool, make sure to take... More

what an amazing building, a very impressive pub, lots of character and amazing décor. Small rooms with luxury leather chairs, a good stop off if walking between the 2 cathedrals.

You could serve me sour milk in this place and I'd still enjoy it! Such a wonderful venue, with lots of character and history- the interior is stunning. Very reasonably price too.
