Visited this pub whilst on City Explorer sightseeing bus as it was recommended by John who was doing the commentary. The pub serves good food and drinks, inside is ornate and comfortable with different rooms to sit in. A visit to the mens toilets for a look is required, ladies ask at the bar!

We visited Liverpool to celebrate our anniversary and visited here for the first time. The pub must be the most beautiful pub we have ever been in. The carvings,stained glass windows are just amazing. Staff friendly and helpful and will be going again next time we are in Liverpool

Fascinating pub with two splendid rooms furnished as it was a gentlemen's club, you can sit down in a armchair and rest with a beer for ages. At the first floor there's a dinner room with a view on the Philarmonic Thatre on the other side of the road. Dishes aren't plentiful, but well cooked. Service very professional and warm.... More

Don't like adding bad reviews, but I was so disgusted by the incompetence of the bar staff who were working when we visited this place. In the past I had visited here many times with fond memories, but when we went there 8pm on Saturday evening (02/07/16) we found the service to be diabolical. I appreciate at this time it... More

We were on a night away in Liverpool and decided to visit on a friends recommendation. Unfortunately we were disappointed. The building has some ornate decor and lots of original features which is nice to see. Unfortunately for us the initial impression at the bar was the awful smell from the gents toilets, this was overpowering and unpleasant. As the... More

This pub is absolutely amazing inside - the decor is stunningly beautiful. Both large and small rooms with very tasteful furniture and intricate carvings on the walls and ceilings. The staff were very friendly and the drinks weren't pricey at all. A lovely place to sit and have a relaxed drink with friends (which is what we did!) Pure class!!

Organised a family reunion for 20 of us. We had the private room upstairs. Food usual pub grub, drinks good but what really made a great night apart from seeing the cousins, was the waitress Christina! What an asset she is! So sociable and attentive, she really made us welcome. If you ever go to Liverpool you should visit this... More
