I live in hope that someone will only day reinvigorate the faded pub that is the Vines. the fine interior remains but the ripped upholstery and poor beer sadly lets it down massively. at the moment it's a nothing boozer when it ought to be a glamorous destination pub.

This has indeed reopened. It has had a bit of a tidy up interior wise and has been restored to its 'grand interior', just. That said its still not a destination pub beer wise. No real ale and a generic choice of blandlagers and kegobitters. Irish music wafts its way through the rooms. I've never really took to this place and this version hasn't done anything to change my view.

4/8/18:
UPDATE: Closed.
This pub is to close. If not already closed, which I've been told has. I haven't seen it open at any point over the last week, w/b 23/7/18.

18/5/16:
The Vines is usually closed midweek afternoons except Fridays. The whole block between this pub and The Crown is due for demolition but the Vines and The Crown are staying and remain open.

There was no real ale on in here, with the best being (in my opinion) the keg Mann’s Chestnut Mild. I didn’t see any sign of food during our late afternoon visit, but there again we weren’t looking for any. This another CAMRA Inventory pub in central Liverpool, and this one retains loads of original Victorial features, including a superb wood panelled heritage suite function room complete with bell pushes, plus ornate marble fireplaces. A full description can be found on the CAMRA Pub Heritage Group website for those who are interested in such things. Unfortunately some original features in the corner room are obscured by posters warning of random alcohol searches (presumably that not bought in the pub) and the like.

They had a singer performing during our visit, with his young daughter doing a song. This is another pub worth a visit, for the decor if not the ale. But watch for the unusual opening times.
