It is a gorgeous pub; very lovely decor and charm. But the minute you walk in a sickly, hideous old beer smell hits you and could make a person ill. The last time we visited (a month before) we had to sit outside because of the stench. It makes your stomach turn. The smell is of stale, rotted beer. Wanted... More

Went here with my girlfriend for meal before a gig at the concert hall (Philharmonic). Meals were simple, gammon plus fish and chips.

Incredible PUB, an authentic time machine. Each corner evoque a private space invite to reflect on the old times. This's a place were the old spirits como to see with their own eyes the present of the past life of Liverpool.

The most visually stunning pub ever! This is High Victorian pub architecture at its best . Carvings, panelled wood, tiled floors, a beautiful bar, wonderful lounges. They serve great beer and gin too. But come to feast your eyes - this is Liverpool's finest

We popped in here as a group early afternoon. Not as busy as I have seen it before and we managed to look at the stunning decor. Drinks were fair priced and although the service was a little slow, the staff were friendly and chatty.

There are so many great aspects of this pub which oozes class and history. Good location, good food and smashing selection of real ales. The nooks, crannies and oak-walled rooms are worth the visit alone

This pub is well worth a visit, both the interior and exterior are without doubt, stunning! The service was very good. Didn't have time to sample any food. But would definitely return.

We were visiting Liverpool for a family birthday and decided to call into the Philharmonic for old times sake....used to be an old stomping ground in our youth. The building is as beautiful as ever but somebody should tell the owners that nice surroundings will not cover for off hand bordering on lousy service for long. I stood at a... More

Called in just for a few pints after work with some colleagues. There was a good selection of beers available to choose from. Service was good. The pub benefits. from having several small rooms each having its own unique appeal. The rooms have plenty of seating and provide enough space for larger groups to congregate (12-15). A good 'drinkers' pub... More
