Twin roomed pub on the same street as The Blackburne - in the grand terrace streets north of the gothic Cathedral. The pub has a lovely period styling to it, with saloon doors and a serving hatch in the corridor between the two drinking areas. The rotund service area takes up a lot of space in the main room, but packs in good row of real ales with local micros prevalent. Across the hallway the tables are larger but are packed in to a space equal to that of the bar area, so things can get tight if itís full. This room is also period styled and atmospheric enough for it.
A public bar serving two small drinking rooms. Four different cask ales from Peerless and Liverpool Organic, among others. Retro, classic pub interior promoting a cozy and welcome atmosphere. Polite service. Very quiet, and relaxing, early on a Monday afternoon. Fleetwood Mac in the background. Located in the northern Georgian Quarter, off the main street, round the corner and a bit further up Sugnall Steet. Can be a bit difficult to spot (visited 02.02.2015).
Fortunately I managed to squeeze in and secure a seat in the corner. I really enjoyed the atmosphere and banter amongst the locals. Good brews from Liverpool Organic as part of a smallish selection. Friendly lady at the bar. No frills. Itís worth making the effort walking over for a beer.
A pub with 2 rooms and some standing room in the middle. Thank goodness for outdoor seating as I wouldnít have been able to sit down otherwise. Four handpumps plus a couple of interesting keg taps and bottles. The cask beers are mostly from the excellent Liverpool Organic Brewery, so I could spend all night here. However there are so many incredible pubs in the area that I must say that this isnít a destination pub. Even still, if you are in the area, I urge you to give it a go.
A true back-street boozer with a small range of classic session beers on cask, well kept. They also advertised some local beers in bottle but were sold out on my visit. The bar area is quite claustrophobic but there is also a seating room. Fairly ambivalent staff. Decent value. The clientele seems to be quite salt-of-the-earth, which I like. Worth a visit.
Visited in januar 2012 on our pre-winter-ale-pubcrawl..
Small city pub, quit narrow around the bar, but with a bit more space in the back, and with a fireplace :-). Think its more a pub for the locals, can be a bit tricky to find..
Had a few of the Liverpool beers on..
