There are some pubs that somehow you cannot fail to like, they may not be the best pubs around but they have a certain something. This is one, two rooms, the front area has the bar and is fairly narrow but it opens out into another square room to the rear. There are loads of framed photos and billboards related to the nearby Empire Theatre, dark flocked wallpaper and a proper fire on the back wall with a tribute to "Ma Egerton" above. Banquette seating around the perimeter with some of the old bell pushes still in situ.
There is some stained glass above the bar, papers in a rack, TV muted on a news channel while low level background music played. A welcoming sort of place where your custom seems valued, as I entered a couple of blokes moved aside to make space and the landlady smiled and said hello. The beer range is not exactly exciting, there are three pumps, one was reversed. I initially ordered Robinson's Dizzy Blonde but it went three quarters through although I was offered it for the price of a half. Instead I went for the Purity Pure Gold which was in good nick (£3.40).
Food served, mainly pizzas which are named after stars of stage and screen plus charcuterie boards.
I did like it here. Four or five eclectic beers would make this a destination pub.

A very neat pub, just around the corner from the North Western JDW. Two rooms, both decorated with theatre memorabilia. Some nice wood and stained glass in both rooms. The room to the left was being used for dining, but there was no problem with us sitting in there just for a drink. The bar area is much smaller and can get quite cramped when busy. Three handpumps on the bar, but only Otter Bitter actually available with a Theakston clip turned around during our visit, it was a decent pint though. Friendly barmaid and regulars add to the positives. The pub food is mainly pizza's and charcuterie boards and both looked good although we didn't eat here as we were booked into Zorba's an hour or so later. A good pub despite the pedestrian beer selection and I think we may well eat here next time we're in Liverpool.

Hidden away at the side of Lime Street Station and to the rear of the Empire Theatre. A rich heritage of famous visitors from years gone by can be boasted/blagged by this pub. 2 rooms separated by a wooden and stained glass partition. Theatre style curtains decorated the windows. The larger room is to the left of the bar. 3 handpumps with Purity Pure Gold, Otter Bitter and a reversed Theakstons clip today. Outside street sitting is available. Lots of theatre memorabilia dotted around. Its an often overlooked pub, including by me, but its a nice pub that I should really make more effort to visit.
