Bucking Fastard left this review about Sanctuary

Describing itself as a Dive Bar was,I felt,rather harsh.It's in a former shop unit but has been well put together with a series of circular tables,wooden display cabinets but kept locked with some distressed plaster work to the side.A high serving bar to the right was serving Top Rope Four Horsemen,Titanic Plum Porter,Fullers( Dark Star) Hophead,Atlas Bear Town and a very decent Five Towns Pale.There are more craft keg beers to boot.
Upstairs in The Green Room,while in the basement there is a parquet floored cellar room,and the whole pub has a bohemian feel.
If you arrive at Lime Street desperate for a decent pint,you won't go far wrong popping in here.Fully deserves it's GBG listing for the decent ale range and conditioning.

Old Boots left this review about Sanctuary

Opposite the Vines on Lime St, it’s a decent small bar with 7 pulls, 8 keg founts and innumerable cans and bottles. Big old fashioned counter to one side with bar stools, seating at round wooden tables with dining room chairs down the other, there’s further seating in the basement and upstairs . The beer’s decently kept and the bar is Camra Merseyside best newcomer 2018 and a GBG2019 entry. Madish decor with stuff locked away where you’d expect bottles and cans plus some artfully broken plaster, stairs down have 1930s adverts and the basement gents has very slightly more risqué pictures. Open mic nights. Rock soundtrack. Seems to be linked to the Internet cafe/ tattooist next door by more than just the connecting door.

Rob Hunter left this review about Sanctuary

I was pleasantly surprised by Sanctuary, from the outside it looks like it could be bordering on a nightclub but inside is just a nice bar with seven hand pulls. I have to say it was smaller than I expected, though there is more seating downstairs (with the toilets) and upstairs (not investigated).

I was particularly pleased to discover Créme Bearlee (Beartown Brewery) on the pumps as I'd been wanting to try this for a while, and it didn't let me down. A decent enough place to end the night before heading back to Lime Street station to get the train home.
