Popped in here for a quick half. It is a relatively small pub, with a small front bar area and a small back room; which means the place gets crowded easily. On top of that it is located in a fairly touristy part of town. But spirits were high during my early afternoon Saturday visit. Not a very impressive range of casks but there are some ticks to be had. Decent value. Nice old-school pub decor, lots of shipping photos, news clippings and paintings. Easy pub to visit but not a highlight.

Visited in januar 2012 on our pre-winter-ale-pubcrawl.. Just arrived in Liverpool we went straigth to this lovely old-fashion pub. Lots of pictures of ships and the Beatles decorated the walls - not surprisingly. 6 handpumps, mainly from the Bowland Brewery. Friendly staff and very cosy atmosphere. Located in a smaller street you either have to be local og seach for it - and it´s worth looking for...

Legendary pub in city centre of Liverpool. You could spend hours just watching the pictures on the waal. Good selection of bitters on tap, a good pub to drop by and a fantastic alternative to the clubs in Matthew Street!!

A traditional pub, unspoilt since its heyday, in a quiet side street just off the main shopping precinct in Liverpool city centre. I liked the White Star immediately – it’s cosy and old fashioned and has survived very much intact as a traditional city centre pub. Shipping pictures – including lots of the Titanic, the White Star Line’s most famous vessel – dominate the snug back room competing only with one wall dedicated to Liverpool’s four most celebrated sons, who have their names on brass plaques over one of the banquettes, and a tribute to the lesser known Stuart Sutcliffe, the Beatles’ original drummer. The pub is twinned with two bars in Norway and one in the Czech Republic. They have six hand pumps and although the beer range isn’t huge it’s mainly local and was enough to keep us going on two separate visits. (Last visited 17 January 2012).

Victorian pub in what is now called the “Cavern Quarter” with a rather handsome two-roomed interior packed with memorabilia and old photographs, especially relating to the old White Star shipping line. The front bar is the more lively, the back room, approached by corridors on either side of the island bar, more sedate. For some reason that I have not been able to fathom the beer selection concentrates (but not exclusively) on beers from Bowland brewery in rural Lancashire.

Nice and calm (at least on my visit) pub right in the middle of the busy tourist area that is the Cavern Quarters. Seating in front of the bar or at the beautiful and cosy room behind the bar. Six real ales from small English breweries. Tried a well kept Slaters Queen Bee, while chatting with the friendly locals. A nice back street pub handy for a nice pint after shopping or just to get away from the buzz. (Visited in July 2009)

Six real ales on cask, three from the Bowland brewery. They were all found in perfect condition and served at the very right drinking temperature. Traditional city-centred Victorian pub, just around the corner from the Beatles memorabilia. Polite service. Has got some association to pubs in Norway, in Grimstad and Skien (visited 04.05.2009).

A good place to have some real ales after visiting all the Beatles places. Pictures and photos on the wall. Two rooms. A very traditional place in the city centre. I tasted very interesting real ale there from Old Bear Brewery called Solmonath ( 23.2.09).
