“Extremely bad service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Attitude of bar staff extremely unhelpful, unprofessional, bordering on rude. Beer served in a plastic glass with no reason given as to why this was necessary. The only disappointing and most unfriendly place visited during our recent stay in Wales.

“Friendly local”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Traditional pub, very busy during holiday season, fantastic location. Staff very friendly, landlord and landlady are very experienced and run a great pub. Like many pubs though it could do with some improvements / refurb, but pub companies won't spend money, shame cause this place is a gem. Always served quick, even when it's 3/4 deep at the bar, and it often is. Can't be many pubs that sell as much beer as the LA.

“Good little pub in great location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

The Liverpool Arms is a nice, old fashioned pub set on the Conwy quayside. Ceilings are low, atmosphere is good but it's pretty tight inside. On a warm evening it's a treat to sit outside with a cold drink though, chatting to family or friends while soaking up the last of the day's rays.

A decent place to enjoy a jar or three.

“A haunting experience?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

This place is a blast from the past, and you could well imagine how busy it was when Conwy was a busy thriving port. It's also built into the actual old town walls. According to legend, the appearance of a ghost at the Liverpool Arms is a sign that someone is soon to die. These appearances are accompanied by a strong scent of vanilla in the air. Vanilla was one of the cargoes landed at Conwy in medieval times.
Inside the pub is dark and foreboding with signs of the past (I think some of the folk in there came from it too) Dark wood envelopes the place entirely. One of those places that when you walk in all eyes are on you! The only hand pulled beer available was Bass draught! A bit like marmite then. Love it or hate it.
The toilets were terrible. Not an aroma you want to inhale in a hurry. All in all a little disappointing really.
