This is one beautiful building, it has to be said. Dark woods, marbles and slates throughout, magnificent rest rooms, I do believe that this used to be a Gentlemanís Club for the Shipping Merchants and it is a real treat that it is essentially the same. However; that doesnít help with the ambiance as tourists use it as a free visitor attraction, on our latest trip a coach full of German youngsters were allowed in, which is a bit off-putting whilst drinking your beer, particularly as some of them were whipping around on push scooters. The beer range is Nicholsonís current fairly dull range, the imagination has gone from their choices. It is a must visit for the beautiful building and maybe for food, but donít get over excited with the beer.

Mulit-roomed Nicholsons pub out from the centre of Liverpool worth a visit for the amazing art deco interior alone, but the beer selection was fairly standard.

Big and hugely impressive pub, with a justly revered interior. Multi roomed, with a sweeping central bar. Standard Nicholsons range of beers, which were slightly uninspired on my visit.

Visited after my graduation, mainly for the interior, which is impressive. Not a bad cask selection and 2 or 3 interesting keg beers. Food was standard pub fare. Service was very quick and friendly

Pretty large place, not many people during my afternoon visit. Impressive interior, lots of wood, leather, marble, vitrage. Make sure you visit Grand Lounge. Cask selection is decent, but certainly not impressive. Well worth visiting for the ambiance and decoration if not for beer.

Close to Clove Hitch/23 Club, big corner pub with a fantastic interior, high ceiling, and a grandious feel about it. Dont forget to visit the gents, nice environment for having a leak, a must visit.

On the opposite side to the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, this Nicholsonís pub is typically period in style and very warm and inviting for it, with a saloon bar styling to it. Split level on the ground floor, there bar occupies the middle ground in the main room, and quite a lot of the space, with seating all around it. To the rear there are three atmospheric rooms, two smaller ones of equal size named after composers, split by a corridor leading to the larger impressive hall space. All have a fine period style to them. Ales from the current Nicholsonís list are numerous at the bar.

Worth a visit just for the building alone despite beers being few for a pub this size. Busy in the evening so had to wait ages to get served. Still an amazing pub.

An elegant pub not to be missed. Itís well on the tourist trail but even with the foot traffic itís easy to soak up the history and grand features. As for the beer, itís by no means exciting but worth grabbing a pint and relaxing in this beautiful pub. Has anyone mentioned the Gents bathroom?

There is no way around it. This pub is gorgeous and appeals to the musician in me with the Brahms and Liszt rooms, not to mention the a Grande Lounge. And, of course, the toilets are amazing. A good mix of cask and bottled beers, although I have been to other Nicholsonís pubs with much more imagination given to their drinks selection. At the end of the day this pub trades on its looks, beer-wise there are better pubs within walking distance.
