an atmospheric old-style pub filled with Beatles memorabilia and maritime imagery. some folkies were playing some very evocative sea shanties and old Irish standards and it gave the pub a great feeling this afternoon. I had two pints which were both drinkable but slightly on the turn. sandwiches and pork pies brought out and all customers extremely friendly old Scousers. swerve Mathew Street and the main shopping drag and come here instead.

Another Liverpool belter. This is a delightful little pub set slap bang in the middle of the Cavern Quarter. The horseshoe bar faces you as you enter with a bit of seating in front of it, continuing back to a larger and very comfortable room back on the right. With the White Star maritime connection (Titanic of course) there’s masses of maritime decor, including prints of ships of course, on all the walls.

I failed to make a note of the ales, but I recall that there were several on and all that we tried were in good condition. We really liked this little pub, and reckon it deserves a place on any Liverpool pub crawl – but it would be a long crawl bearing in mind the number of excellent pubs in Liverpool.

A Victorian Gem in the Cavern quarter a short throw from the Cavern club itself. Behind its red tiled frontage is a feast of red leather, fancy tiling, elaborate wood carving and an impressive collection of White Star Line shipping memorabilia and some Beetles memorabilia due to the fact that Bob Wooler and Allan Williams used to pay their acts in the back room.
A smallish two room pub with a wooden semi-circular front bar, with red leather seat under the glass screens at the front, a quieter impressive backroom with its red leather upholstered benches and impressive collection of the historic ships of the White Star Fleet, then a small Beatles and Titanic mural-adorned beer garden out by the toilets.
Alongside the permanent Draft Bass there was Otter Brewery Poppy, The Oceanic Beer Co. Pier 59, and Robinsons Dizzy Blonde. The Blonde was a decent pint and we managed to bag space on one of the seats in the back room in which to enjoy it.
This pub really is a haven from all the tourist tat on Matthew Street and I could have stayed here for a lot longer than we did.
