Not too much to report on here, grungy and dark atmosphere. Rock and roll pub with jukebox. There was a solid crowd already at the bar just after opening. OK cask selection.

A pub for the real ale enthusiast who also embraces the ’rock n roll lifestyle’. Lots of rock and metal ephemera here, plenty of black and leather. The music was somewhat hard (I recall some AC/DC during my visit) but not obnoxiously loud or anything. The first floor has a nice range of casks, around eight or so, in addition to a modest range of Belgian bottles. The second floor has another bar but seemed to only serve macro keg sludge. I think there may have even been a third floor but I dared not venture that far up. The cask range was actually pretty stellar given the overall setting of the place. They had bitter, ESB, golden, stout and IPA, which is better selection style-wise than most of the other pubs I have visited in Liverpool. The location is fairly central so this might be a place worth checking out.

Visited in januar 2012 on our pre-winter-ale-pubcrawl..
Pat, you will love this place :-)
Loud music, skeletons, bones and scary stickers is the main deco here ( and it was not Halloween... )
8 casks, good variation, and 1 cider. In it´s own way very cosy..

A very good selection of real ales for a place with loud and very good music. Phoenix Wobbly Bob has been available since I remember. I do like (2010).

An odd grungy pub with nine taps, three of which were off. The Swan Inn is in one of the scruffy side streets of the city centre that look deserted during the day but seem to come alive at night. The wrinkled old punk in black leather and studs who was smoking by the door when we went in pretty much set the scene. It’s a bit dingy inside, basic and fairly plain apart from the grotesque skulls and other gruesome motifs tattooed on the walls over each pair of lamps. Heavy metal music was emanating from an old fashioned juke box but it wasn’t too intrusive. We nicknamed it “the Patrik pub” after our good friend oh6gdx – he would love it.
