Rob Hunter left this review about The Head of Steam

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.

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.

I have heard a lot about this chain without having ever visited any of them. I was a tad suspicious of it but actually I quite liked it. comfortable and relaxing inside if a little short of atmosphere on a Tuesday afternoon. not sure what it's like later on. didn't inspect too carefully but ale selection seemed decent to me (9 were on, by the way). pint of Saltaire blonde perfectly kept. there's a really good range of Belgian beers from the monks etc so great if you like that stuff too. please-all food menu also available but nothing inspiring enough for me to indulge.
