A traditional feeling pub with a room for bottles and another for darts. Servers knew the beers pretty well. Selection was strong with a good collection of casks, taps and bottles. Food was solid but not great. Prices were a touch high but you pay for selection. A must hit in Liverpool.
Visited on a Monday evening and it was nicely busy. The is in the centre of what is essentially 3 or 4 rooms, different hand pumps and kegs all the way around the bar. Several of their own beers on tap, and plenty of other local beers. The food is ordered from "the gallery" which is just a hatch, several different burgers were available, simple and nice.
We have visited the Ship & Mitre on a few occasions, it is number 1 on the ’must do’ list in Liverpool. It is at the top end of the run of pubs down Dale Street, which isn’t the prettiest part of Liverpool, it has to be said. Inside is a haven for drinkers, the bar is immediately in front of you and a constantly updated whiteboard on your right, giving a list of the beers that are currently on tap, a separate list is available for the many bottled beers. The beers change regularly, some local, some from further afield and now they brew their own, so will be a regular feature. It is a treat to visit.
Just outside of the main part of Liverpool is this classic example of exactly what a Brittish Pub looks like in my head. Dark, with lots of wood, a good number of real ales, ciders, and plenty of draft lines too. Bottle selection seemed pretty good as well. Food from a window near the entrance, and drink service from either side of a large bar. Plenty of seating located around the different sections of the place. Prices were really quite cheap compared to basically everywhere else we visited in the UK. Glad to have visited here, it just feels like a place that needs to be visited.
what could I say about the ship that’s not been said already? cracking place an absolute legaend in Liverpool a regular favourite on my town jaunts, great bottle selection lots of real ale and craft beer sometimes from poor breweries but always kept well
Feels very much like a ’real pub’. Lots of different cask stuff on with a very high attention to quality. Few craft keg offerings too and a lot of bottles (lost of German stuff). Went from fairly quiet to pretty busy quite quickly after the Everton game finished.
Large place with centrally located bar area.
Nice selection of cask beers and kegs. Those who are into German and Belgian beers will find good selection of those. Also some UK/US craft bottles. Really nice place, a definite must in L’pool.
