Basic feeling bar, seems like a chain. Was dead on a Tuesday night. Beer was okay but limited due to Cains stop in brewing.

Interesting pub with several rooms, can get busy over the week ends but usually quiet otherwise.beer kept in good condition and sometimes there are guest beers. Full range of Cains beers, on tap and bottled.

Visited in januar 2012 on our pre-winter-ale-pubcrawl.. Go 100 years back in time, waiting for your appointment with the dentist, while having a pint of Cains beer, that was more or less how I felt when visiting this pub. But luckily I wasn´t waiting for a visit at the dentist... Being a Cains pub they more or less only had the Cains beer on. Large corner pub with a lot of dentist / medical stuff around, the pub is named after Doctor Duncan, who was one of the first public doctors.

If you like Cains beers you can have Cains beers. A nice place to have some Cains beers (2010).

Although the surgery side is nice to take a look at the lounge side is a nicer place to sit and have a beer. Beer quality can vary but it’s a good place to try out several Cains beers.

A Cains pub close to the city centre. Doctor Duncan’s has ten hand pumps, including one or two guests. It’s an interesting old building although it probably wasn’t originally a pub. There’s a reconstruction of a “modern” (Victorian) pharmacy near the main entrance, a cosy back room containing some antiquated dental equipment that would be enough to put anyone off going to the dentist ever again and, the pièce de résistance, a wonderful tiled hall. The medical paraphernalia relates to the eponymous Doctor Duncan, the country’s first medical officer of health, appointed in Liverpool in 1847 and a pioneer of the Victorian public health reforms which were introduced to address the problems of rapid urban growth and insanitary living conditions. (Visited 17 January 2012).

We went in at 11am on a Saturday morning in January, the pub was fairly quiet understandably and service was very quick. A number of hand-pulls on, mostly if not all Cains. A nice place to sit and chill, read the paper and have a morning beer.

Owned, or at least operated, by Cains brewery. Serves the full range of Cains beers plus a few guests. Lots of medical paraphernalia and architectural features although they are not “original” as such, as this is a conversion rather than an old pub. Drink in the tiled room. Very quiet when I visited early afternoon. Cains runs other places in the city and a visit to at least one is essential. Which one (or more) is a matter of personal preference. I opted for Doctor Duncans as it is closest to Lime Street station and right on the route to the Ship & Mitre.

Beautiful Victorian style pub centrally located between Lime Street Station and Ship & Mitre. The bar is at the front, with several rooms at the back and to the sides. Check out the lovely tiled room to the right. Efficient and friendly service. Only had Cains beers on handpump on my visit in July 2009, but I have seen guest beers here on previous visits. Since you’re probably in the area, you should drop in for a pint.
