This iconic pub is really worth a visit, the amazing lavish interior (complete with marble urinals!) is astonishing. There's a choice of real ales, I had a St Austell 'Nicholsons' brewed for the chain which was fine. Our visit was marred by a very poor lunch, my wife's steak frites was probably the worst pub meal she'd ever had, my... More

Came here on a guided tour to visit this famous landmark and went straight back when it ended. We managed to grab a table outside and sat with cocktails (very good) and a few cold beers. Loved the way the rooms have been preserved and look so special. Don't miss the gents!

The Philharmonic is a 20 minutes walk from the very centre of Liverpool, but is certainly worth the journey! This pub met my general criteria, and surpassed it by far! With 4 real ales at the bar, this is one of the Philharmonic's strong suits. The pub also serves a wide variety of gins, wines and cocktails. The décor inside... More

Just five minutes' walk from Ye Cracke, this pub showed the other end of the social spectrum: sophistication and a wonderful interior. The bar is just inside the door, and very welcoming; don't lean on the hatch. Behind you are three rooms: those to either side of the passage snugs, the third a large dining hall. All have extensive mahogany... More
