An original part of Albert Docks,this building would have been used to pump water into the docks after a lockage to maintain water levels.It's a Greene King tied house on three levels,the main room has a low ceiling.The lower lounge has a flagstone floor,while the upper section does give decent views over the docks.In the tap room the two wall dumb waiters are a feature but the furniture is a mix of modern high tables by the bar and fitted benches elsewhere,with little natural light it feels a bit cramped.
There are 9 handpumps but many were unused ,leaving a choice of Black Sheep Bitter,GK Old Speckled Hen,a house brew (no doubt GK rebadged) Alberts Dock Finest and Castle Rock Harvest Gold (NBSS 2.5).A low ABV selection of little merit,the corporate vibe also means there is really no good reason to visit here despite the good location.

chances are if you visit Liverpool you'll end up at the Albert Dock at some point - be aware this is the only place really resembling a pub in the immediate area. it's your typical Greene King McPub in converted harbour building in tourist trap location, you should already know what to expect. it's much better than it used to be with 10 handpumps serving a decent range these days. good luck getting served though especially if you're stuck behind people trying to order food. ('we don't serve from that menu until 11' - it was 10.55). i'm very surprised that Wetherspoons haven't opened up on the dock (yet) - they would make a killing here.

Something of a landmark, in an historic building with its tall chimney, this is also something of a tourist trap. A large and bustling pub on a couple of levels, with a heavy food trade and a very good and large range of beers (and Cask Marque accreditation). My only real complaint was that the music inside was far too loud and unnecessary, however escaping to the outside tables overlooking the dock was very pleasant indeed on a sunny afternoon. If you must go to Albert Dock, the place to aim for.
