Dark and dingy beer hall inside, and picnic tables outside. A selection of casks from local breweries such as Liverpool Craft. Definitely a student hangout with a grungy vibe.

This was my daughters regular drinking bar when she was at John Moores University, all the drama based degree students used it. Comedy club, loud music and loads of students is how it was. Re-visited in 2014 and it seemed a little quieter than I remembered. Cask ales were OK but most customers were on lager or cider. Surprised to see it listed on RateBeer. Close to La Cracke and not as good.

A kind of weird and wonderful place. They have a small selection of casks but the stuff they had on was top drawer. They also appear to offer food at some of the lowest prices I have ever seen in a pub. The seating options consist of six-person booths and a long, medieval banquet-style table; this place seems geared towards large groups. Attentive service, decent value. Most this place is in a basement so thereís no mobile reception. I could envision this place being somewhat oppressive at night if gets busy but during my Sunday afternoon visit it was fine.

Underground bar offering cheap breakfasts and american diner style burgers. Good range fairly priced though a bit raucous with a stag crowd in. they were asked to keep it down by staff though.

Visited in januar 2012 on our pre-winter-ale-pubcrawl..
A bit tricky to find, placed in a basement, 5 steps down..
Mostly a place for younger people, therefore you can much more served than beers :-) while listening to loud music.. ( uhhh I sound like an old grumpy lady now... )
Not that huge numbers of beers, but we had a couple from the local Liverpool Organic Brewery..

In the evening the place is full of students having fun. In the morning you can very good and cheap english breakfast with real ale at 10am (2010).

This place is close enough to the university that itís usually full of students. Offers the usual cheap commercial stuff, along with a couple of good real ales and (last time I was there) a decent dry cider. Gets very busy towards closing time - donít count on getting a table inside if youíre arriving late! Good value, though a little less laid back than I prefer.

The Pilgrim is in a basement, entered down a covered cobbled alleyway. It has the kind of grungy alternative feel I associate with Camden in the 1980s (but perhaps actually more like Liverpool in the 1960s) and thus a kind of charm too. There are bare brick archways filled with painted mirrors, mainly with a Beatles theme, and every table in the booths along the walls has its own small wall-mounted juke box. I suspect they donít work anymore but we didnít test them out as there was already rather loud music playing. Somehow this all fits together nicely and despite the cheap drinks obviously intended to bring in a younger crowd (wine, Carlsberg, double vodka and red bull at knock down prices) I liked the place. Whatís more, the choice of beer on the four hand pumps wasnít bad and the beer was fresh and well kept.
