Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Head of Steam

I made my first visit to the Head of Steam in almost 2 years on a recent Saturday. It is just as popular as it was pre-lockdown with its central bar and plenty of seating all around.

Cameron's Strongarm is the regular ale. Guests on this Saturday afternoon visit were Green Duck Revolution, Top Rope Vanilla Monsoon, Vocation Heart & Soul & Brew York Maris the Otter. Ciders were Lilley's Tropical Cider & Gwynt y Ddraig Farmhouse Scrumpy. In addition, there are many craft beers on draft.

My Vanilla Monsoon and Tropical Cider were both very enjoyable and so was the CAMRA discount you can get here. Live sports are shown on the TV and food is also available.

A solid 8/10, one of the best pubs in the city and in reference to the last review, it is so much more reliable than its previous incarnation at Lime Street station.

I never made it to the original Head of Steam in Liverpool, so was glad when this one opened and welcomed the opportunity to include it on a crawl. It reminded me of the Birmingham venue in terms of interior décor. As you come in the real ales are to the back of the right hand side of the bar, with 10 hand pulls, including a cider.

There seems to be a rear area which can be sectioned off and has its own bar (not in use at the time of my visit) which I assume is where private functions can be held.

A good selection of styles on the real ale front and another good example of an outlet from this chain.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Head of Steam

Liverpool's first Head of Steam was at Lime Street Station, where Wetherspoons is now situated. Cameron's have certainly spent a lot of money fitting out this large space. The pubs theme is of the golden age of steam as are the majority of their outlets. I especially liked the timber clad wall opposite the bar which was made to look like parcel wagons. Another railway feature was found at the rear of the pub, which was the train carriage style booths with luggage racks above the seats. Another large feature in here was the high, curved corrigated steel ceiling finished in dark grey, which looked as though you were in a railway arch.
Eight handpumps on my visit with a fairly uninspiring choice of ales, so I went for the Higsons Winter Ale 4.3% at £3.80 a pint, which was in excellent condition.
