a classic pub, great place to spend an afternoon if you can get a seat in here early and soak up the atmosphere.

This is an excellent well preserved street corner pub, close to the old and now closed Exchange Station, the larger and main room is The Bar which has an old Falstaff's Brewery window, beyond through doorways are two lovely connecting rooms, the "News Room" being particularly appealing and contains the old bell pushes in the banquettes. The island bar is a sight to behold, curved etched glass, lower patterned tiling and dark stained upper woodwork, ornate ceiling cornices. The tiling extends to the walls in The Bar, the ceiling has elaborate cornices and copper hooded fireplaces look to get use in the colder months. Leather button backed bench seats, small chairs at Britannia type tables, lots of interesting B&W photos of the Mersey Tunnel in the early years including during construction. The bar area has some splendid floor tiling while the back rooms are carpeted.The handpumps are all in the bar but there are boards listing the beers, this visit had Red Star Lakata plus Lion IPA, Moorhouse Pride of Pendle, Titanic Plum Porter, Charnwood Liska and Rock the Boat Dazzle, two not on. Lunchtime/afternoon food seemed to comprise of pork pies.
A lovely pub, I did enjoy it but I found the service to be disinterested and almost objectionable, a request for a top up to a short pint was met with a "let it settle"....it didn't and eventually I got a token top up plus the landlady had a habit of half pulling a pint then disappearing to chat to presumed regulars and needing a harrumph to finish the job, so down a mark. Despite this it is an essential Liverpool visit.

After a short closure, this time for a redecoration and spruce up, it is now all sparkley and clean with freshly polished floors, a lick of paint and reupholstered seats.

Reopened. Its exactly as it was when it shut. There were a couple of Camra police in and they seemed happy enough so I guess it passes.

22/6/16
This pub is currently closed. As of 15/6/16 a dispute between owners and landlord has resulted in the closure of the pub. How long it lasts is to be seen but dont bother coming here at the mo if you're in Liverpool.
