We had lunch here when visiting the two cathedrals. Amazing old pub with stained glass and tiles. Food good and nice beer too. A very old pub and worth seeing.

Having family over from new zealand and out and about playing tourist guide to them we popped in to the philharmonic dining rooms for coffee To dry out, we ended up in one of the seperate rooms they have available, oaklinded walls with big chesterfield leather chairs open fire place found it very cozy and inviting.. after popping to their toilets again I was blown away with the features of this proud pub this is a must for any visitor to Liverpool and they have a reasonable food menu as well..

We recently attended for a colleagues birthday celebration. We had contacted the restaurant in advance as there was a group of 14 of us. We were asked to e-mail a pre-order which we did on the monday before our reservation on the saturday. Despite this it
was an hour and 10 minutes before our starters arrived with a further long delay before we received our main courses. The main courses were brought to the table despite the fact that our starter dishes had not been cleared away! The food was nice though nothing out of the ordinary. I'm sure there are better places to eat nearby that would provide far superior service.

Lovely service let by less than average food and appalling wallpaper. A shame in such an iconic pub.

My husband took me here today for some Sunday lunch!! Don't get my wrong the place looks lovely on the outside..and I suppose it's nice on the inside but the place stank of pee downstairs! Poss from night before! There is a thing as bleach and air spray! Wondered why the windows were all open! Anyways we took our seats upstairs! I ordered turkey and husband ordered chicken! Waited about 10mins which was good as we were very hungry! I can honestly say it was disgusting! The roast potatoes were over done to the point they where rock hard! Awful! The vegetables were still raw! Turkey was very poor and not much to it! My husbands dinner at least was edible! You shouldn't have to saw at ur food and a Sunday dinner is defo not hard to put together! Think this place needs to think about their staff and chef as it's taking away from the actual place as there is nothing wrong with it! Will not be back!
