the sampler of 3 x 1/3 pints for various ales was a great way to taste some of the local brews. Very friendly staff. Breathtaking interior. I have never seen a more beautiful pub.

I had read about this place and am so glad I zipped in during my short stay in Liverpool. You have to at least have a drink there since it's so gorgeous, both outside and in. I got the lunch special which had a choice of about 6 entrees and a large glass of beer or cider for £7. The... More
