charming if rather dated pub down a back street. I usually fit it into my many pub crawls of this area. though I have struggled with the beer here in the past too.

Situated down the evocatively named Hackins Hey, a narrow side lane, this pub has claims to be the oldest pub in the city. Inside there are a series of cubby hole seating areas with the bar along the front wall in what is the main area. Carpeted, wood panelled walls, stained glass leaded windows and copper panels to the bar front. There was a proper roaring fire on the go in a hearth with a copper hood over which featured a Liver Bird. The overall ambience was of a warm, comfortable and cosy feel.
Old signs warn of press gangs, there are jugs and tankards dangling from hooks over the bar and the walls are liberally covered with old B&W photos of Liverpool.
It's a friendly spot, a chap sitting on a bar stool saw me perusing the pumps and then ran through the beers describing the styles, the extremely chirpy barmaid was good fun and nice with it, she left her post briefly to help some old boy outside to his taxi.
Two banks of three handpumps, Red Star Lakota plus Havana Moon, Peerless Bunny Hop, Rock the Boat Dazzle and Cottage Golden Arrow. I'm unsure if meals are served but there are signs advertising Jones' pork pies.
This was a men only pub until relatively recently resulting in the hastily added ladies toilet being accessible only by passing through the bar. Unusually also the cellar is upstairs as the pub is apparently built on the site of an old burial ground.
This is the sort of cosy pub you could easily sit in for a session, I liked it a great deal.

The last few months the beer in here has been undrinkable. Which is a shame. No matter which ale you choose, at anytime, it all has a horrible...erm, musty kinda taste. Whoever is in charge of the cellar needs either sacking or re-educated. Oh, and Adolf Hitler drank here. According to the blurb anyway.
