A big, sprawling bar that seems to be undergoing an identity crisis; it is at once pub, craft beer bar and sports bar, but it does neither of the three especially well. There were around eight casks on during my visit, including some Okells, but nothing too exciting. They also have some craft stuff on keg in addition to the normal macro keg options. And then they do have crafty bottles. There is some pub decor but it feels artificial and sterile. Average pricing, more or less. Might have an interesting beer on tap but not a highlight for Liverpool.

very well kept cask beer, good selection from yorkshire, cheshire and merseyside, selection of bottles including german beers and schneider weisse/brooklyn kegs. lovely old listed building (former bakers/confectioners) and the roast dinners smelled great (not sampled on this visit)

Visited in januar 2012 on our pre-winter-ale-pubcrawl.. Large pub, with a loooog bar. 8 cask pumps with well conditioned beers. Nice music and a lot of wodden panels. This is really a cosy place to come to have a pint and relax...

Large, spacious, wood panelled pub. Very quiet on a tuesday afternoon when we visited. Excellent range of real ale. Pleasant staff and although I didn’t try the food it looked like awesome pub grub, scouse and chip butties.

Originally Kirkland’s Bakery, then reputedly the first wine bar in Liverpool in the 1970s, the Fly in the Loaf is now an Okells pub with eight interesting hand pumps, 5 keg taps and perhaps 10-20 bottles. All the beers we had looked good and were well kept. The conversion from bakery to wine bar to pub has been done sympathetically to the attractive original frontage. There’s a long, high bar with the bottles neatly arranged on dark wooden shelves with mirrors behind. It’s quite spacious and was eerily quiet when we were there on a cold Monday evening in January. Incidentally, this area of town seems still to be “in transition”. For example, just opposite the Fly in the Loaf is what used to be O’Connor’s, a tavern frequented by luminaries such as Alan Ginsberg, before it morphed into the less auspicious Chaucers disco; today it is a fancy dress shop called Lili Bizarre.

Went in here on a slow pub crawl, sat in here a good hour in late afternoon and it was fairly empty. Good selection of ales, not bad pricing, fairly cheap.

Must be one of the best places with german and belgian beer in Liverpool. Also a good range of small british breweries on tap. Nice place

What a surprise! I went there with no particular expectations (I saw a 70 rating here on ratebeer), but this was one of the best places I visited during my stay in Liverpool. Six casks and 3 imported beer on tap. Friendly staff, very good selection with two casks for local brewers (Liverpool Organic Brewery and another one I forgot). Large room, upstairs there was another one I hadn’t visited. Worth a visit. Highly recommended! If you want foreign beers they got a good selection of german kölsch, kristallweizen, dunkelweizen, lager and belgian strong ales

Originally Kirklands bakery, nowadays it is another pub (see also Thomas Rigbys) operated by Okells brewery and carries a good variety of guest beers too. The refit is sympathetic but it’s not the cosiest place and it doesn’t have the grandeur or ambience of Liverpool’s genuine Victorian boozers.
