A fantastic way to spend an afternoon
Jul 2021 • Couples
Looking good and inviting from the outside so we popped in for a quick pint as it was a rainy lunchtime, an afternoon later we left. Thank you everyone for making two damp strays to Liverpool very welcome. The staff and landlord were fantastic friendly, chatty and knew their stuff and their beer, the whole place was clean, tidy and well looked after. It was a joy to stand at the bar again ordering, drinking, chatting with staff and regular's. Thanks for a great Friday afternoon and I urge anyone in Liverpool to visit you won't be disappointed we arrived ss strangers but left as friends we will be back.

Great visit as always
Aug 2021 • Friends
My twin brother Stephen and I decided to visit all the pubs down Dale Street and the little streets just off Dale Street and Ye Hole In Ye Wall Pub was at the top of our list of pubs to visit.
It's one of Liverpool's oldest pubs dating from 1726 so it has some serious history attached to it, the interior is fabulous, stained glass windows, snug rooms,a solid wood serving bar dominates the main room, some great features such as the impressive fireplace, there's also tv's to enjoy the sport and plenty of seating options spread throughout this pub its just a fantastic, historically important pub and an extremely popular pub.
My twin brother Stephen and I were here on a Thursday afternoon, we had a study of their real ale's and we both opted to have Rock The Boat Brewery " fab four " a great ipa that was served in excellent condition, we just kicked back, chilled out and took in the great pub we were in.
My ipa was really good, dry hopped using four variant hops from the United Kingdom, a crisp, well balanced ipa bursting with taste, so tasty on such a hot afternoon, it was just so good being in such a wonderful pub enjoying a quality brew sat with my twinny, couldn't be better .
We really enjoyed our ipa's in here, only stayed for the one each before moving on, we didn't get to far actually as we went to The Denbigh Castle Pub next door,another great pub well worth seeking out.
The Denbigh Castle Pub is easy to locate along Hackins Hey.
Opening hours are;
Monday to Sunday, Midday till 11pm.
A fabulous pub, an ancient pub,a great pub to check out.

Famous pub….
Jun 2021 • Couples
We’d read about this famous pub & made it in our way to seek it out.
Apparently it’s the oldest pub in Liverpool & is also the most haunted! A Spanish sailor has been sighted in the upstairs rooms, an old man & also a dog are said to haunt the downstairs bar area.
Very fortunately we didn’t have any ghostly experiences when we stopped to photograph the building!!

I believe this is not the oldest pub in Liverpool , actually the Coffe house in woolton village l25 is quite old 1641 … it predates your ye hoke in the wall by 100 years … go check it out

One Of The Best.
May 2021 • Friends
Ye Hole In Ye Wall in Hackins Hey is without doubt one of the best pubs in the city centre that offer's an excellent range of cask and commercial beers and is one of the oldest pubs in the city centre.
Ye Hole In Ye Wall is considered one of the oldest pubs in the city centre and dates from 1726 and is built over an old Quaker burial site and reputably haunted by two resident ghosts.
The pub itself is housed in a lovely old building on Hackins Hey which is one of the original streets in the city centre.The interior to this pub is fantastic with a compact multi-roomed interior with superb etched glass features'wood panelling and lots of good light features and excellent seating options throughout the whole pubs interior.
We have been visiting Ye Hole In Ye Wall for many years as the atmosphere in here is always superb and the staff are first class.This is our first visit to here this year but once the indoor restrictions on May the 17th where lifted we came here.On entry we gave our track and trace details and took our seat in one of the rooms just off the main bar and ordered a few cask ales which where superb and well priced for a city centre pub.
Ye Hole In Ye Wall is a must go destination for the real ale drinker who likes old world pubs with lots of character and superb staff.Very easy to get to from Moorfields train station take a right on Dale street and walk along then take a right turn onto Hackins Hay.(This is my second review of Ye Hole In Ye Wall).
Opening Hours.
Monday-Sunday-12.00-22.00.

Prime Minister Boris laid out the roadmap out of the pandemic for the hard hit hospitality sector with pubs being allowed to reopen on the 12th of April with outside service only and from the 17th of May inside and outside service allowed and by June 21st more or less back to normality so it will be great once again to visit some of the great pubs our city is justifiably famous for, one of the very best pubs and also one of the oldest is The Ye Hole In Ye Wall Pub, a pub dating from 1726 ,a pub I always enjoy visiting.
With very little in the way of room for outside seating along Hackins Hey this pub will open on the 17th of May when indoor service is permitted and once again it will be fantastic to sample some of the best kept real ale's in Liverpool and in one of its most historically important pubs ,I personally will be waiting at the door of this pub come the 17th of May eagerly looking forward to a pint or three of one of their great range of real ale's.
The Ye Hole In Ye Wall Pub is easy to locate on Hackins Hey, just off Dale Street, a great pub,most definitely well worth checking out if you're in the area.

Liverpool's oldest pub and certainly one of its best.
Nov 2020 • Friends
Just after the 1st coronavirus pandemic lockdown restrictions were lifted and pre tier three coronavirus pandemic restrictions that ultimately led to the 2nd lockdown my twin brother Stephen and I visited some of the great pubs our beautiful city is justifiably famous for and Ye Hole In Ye Wall Pub is not just one of my favourite pubs but its the oldest pub in Liverpool on one of the original streets that formed the city centre of Liverpool namely Hackins Hey.
Dating from 1726 this pub is awesome, stained glass windows, a warming open fire,splendid wall art ,period decor and furnishings, tv's to enjoy the sport and despite its relatively small size there's plenty of seating options spread throughout this pub, its a pub that oozes history and atmosphere and befitting a pub of its great age its haunted ,built on the site of a Quaker burial site ,the pub boasts at least two ghosts ,one a shuffling figure and another of a Spanish sailor who met an untimely end for refusing the Kings shilling in the 18th century, another fascinating fact that until 1975 this was a man only pub,no women allowed ,this rule was smashed when a group of women strode in and supped pints of beer under the " men only " sign,very cool indeed, its a pub I have been frequenting for well over 30 years and a pub I always look forward to visiting.
My twin brother Stephen and I were here on a Saturday afternoon, pub was busy with a great atmosphere, greeted warmly by a very pleasant member of the staff, we gave our details of name and phone number to assist with the governments track and trace system and then sanitised our hands ( cant understand the previous review ) ,we were allocated a table were we ordered a pale ale each ,these as always were served in excellent condition ,we just kicked back, chilled out and took in the great pub we were in.
My pale ale was really good, a crisp, well balanced, full bodied pale ale, hints of caramel and a big hit of hops, it was so good being in such an historically important pub enjoying a quality brew served by staff who are genuinely pleased to see you in their pub.
We both really enjoyed our pale ale's in here and the great vibe so much so that we ended up staying for another pale ale each before we moved on and as on every other visit to here we had a great time.
Ye Hole In Ye Wall Pub is easy to locate, walk down Dale Street in the direction of Liverpool Town Hall and cut right onto Hackins Hey were you will find this fine pub.
Opening hours are;
Monday to Sunday, Midday till 11pm.
Until the 2nd of December all pubs, bars and restaurants are closed because of the 2nd lockdown.

Great Covid Breeding Ground
Oct 2020
We visited here a couple of weeks ago. It was a Saturday afternoon. Upon entering there was no track and trace and nowhere to sign in for the Covid business. A large group of lads were stood up blocking the route through to the bar. There were probably about ten in the group, not sitting but dancing around, play fighting, wandering around on their mobiles with total disregard to the safe distancing guidelines. When I spoke to the barman about it he said it was his brother and friends and that they were in their own bubble. Possibly so, but they weren't in ours or that of the other customers. This place is a joke when compared to the other local pubs who were really making an effort.
Lovely old place but they deserve a spanking for what was allowed to go on in there.

A great afternoon in this happy cheerful traditional pub.
Oct 2020
The art work on the walls is eclectic and wonderful. Only matched by the friendly service and great atmosphere. Steve the manager runs a clean respectable traditional pub with good beer excellent Rum and all the spirts that pubs carry. The pub architecture is both traditional and high quality with all the humor associated with Liverpool I particularly enjoyed seeing the art work in the bar and the banter with steve his staff and his regulars. A great place to visit and a friendly safe environment to drink in. Just wish I could put the place on wheels and take it home to Newcastle.
