Jon B left this review about Ship & Mitre

still a good place with the best beer selection in Liverpool, which I can't see changing any time soon. That said, with each visit I find myself less and less enamored with the atmosphere and general layout of the place. feels like the bar of a permanent beer festival rather than a pub at times.

The striking Art Deco exterior is visible from a distance and acts as a magnet. Tricky to walk to from Lime Street due to the tunnel and various road crossings but it certainly is well worth it. Inside there is effectively a large island bar with several distinct areas off it. Some are slightly raised, the front has an open boarded ceiling whereas the large rear room has a glazed skylight. A couple of dartboards, one with bookshelves surrounding it, shelves of model sailing ships, a mitre hat, a ball made from bottle tops, glasses and jugs. To the front right is a food servery hatch, proper old school nosh here, scouse with beetroot and a toasted barmcake £7, chip butties for £2. Thursday nights have "scouse on the house", a mini portion free with each pint until it's gone.
The name is a collaboration of two previous pubs, The Flagship and The Mitre. Nowadays the pub has an offshoot bottle shop, called The Ship in a Bottle. There is apparently an upstairs but I didn't see it.
Loads of beers, handpulled, keykeg and bottled, on the pumps were Marston's EPA, Briggs Rock n Roll #2, Rooster's Wild Mule, Mallinson's CM, Peerless Crystal Maze, Cheshire Brothers Best Bitter and Earl's Eye Amber, Peerless Red Rocks, Titanic Cappuccino Stout Coastal Brewery St Pirans, Deva Equinox, Cross Bay Zenith, 4T's IPA, Salopian Lemon Dream and Copper Dragon Golden Pippin. Now that is one line up.
As a testimony to the beer range the upper walls are continuously lined with beer mats. The service was fast and efficient, the barman asking orders two at a time and remembering too. This is right up there as regards pubs and was justifiably quite busy on Thursday afternoon. I'd recommend this as being the first stop off the train at Lime Street however you may find it hard to leave.

Quinno _ left this review about Ship & Mitre

Impressive Art Deco styled frontage housing a large ale-led pub served by an island bar. Thirteen (I think) ales spread around the bar, my halves of Cheshire Brewing Roodee Dark and Osset Treacle Stout were in excellent nick, though the Blackmere Jewel was a little under-par. Also lots of bottles (bottled beer menu available), cider, perry and craft keg to choose from. Swift service despite the throng and no sign of the ‘serves regulars before you’ complaints I’d read about elsewhere. Numerous beer festivals advertised. Absolutely rammed on Saturday evening though it’s a very male-oriented place, I think Mrs Quinno’s presence helped put the lady count up by 25% but it was a great atmosphere nonetheless. So busy it was hard to pick out stuff beyond the galleon stylings, though we enjoyed the old Belgian boxed beer crates finding use as condiment holders on the tables and the nice rear skylight. Downsides were the state of some of the furnishings (shot to pieces) and the gents toilets (a low-grade, cramped piss-swamp). Would be near the top of the revisit list next time I’m in town though.
