Down the on the road opposite the front of the station, this pub is next to the large hotel that straddles the bus station. Itís a lovely old place that seems to get more period in style as you venture around it. Itís a well-to-do traditional pub in style when you enter with a cramped bar area that faces the large front windows - which allow you to peruse the half dozen cask ales available before you even enter. Most of these are well-known, but it does carry a guest or two which might be of interest. Itís not the nicest of places to try and get served at if thereís a crowd in here though - many congregate around the bar area with little thought for others making it uber difficult to reach the service area. The bar is central in the building and the areas to sit are a full 360 degrees around it, although the bar only faces one of these directions. Itís on several split levels too with the first area soft furnished and very comfortable, but the lowest part that is tiled on floor and walls being the most atmospheric, and clearly the oldest section. Thereís also a wooden awards board in here charting schools sports-day winners from 1924 onwards for the next couple of decades, which might suggest there was a different use for this building at one time. Thereís an eye level fridge to the side of the bar that holds a few beers that are certainly of more interest than the very standard selection thatís behind it.

I seem to remember more medical paraphanalia last time I was, other than that not much has changed. I was dissapointed to find that Cains have seemed to have gone defunct and have now been replaced by beers mainly from the Marstons brewing empire. I had a bowl of scouse and a guest real ale both of which were good

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 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 wasnīt 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 itís a good place to try out several Cains beers.

A Cains pub close to the city centre. Doctor Duncanís has ten hand pumps, including one or two guests. Itís an interesting old building although it probably wasnít originally a pub. Thereís a reconstruction of a ďmodernĒ (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 piŤce de rťsistance, a wonderful tiled hall. The medical paraphernalia relates to the eponymous Doctor Duncan, the countryís 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.

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.
