Liverpool has pubs a plenty,but the only ones i am going to write about here are the ones serving REAL ALE!You may not find any talent in these pubs,but you will certainly find a good pint!
Starting at the liver buildings,cross the dual carriageway and make for Dale Street.The first pub here is Rigbys,a pub owned by Isle of man brewer,Okells.A darkish interior,okells beers along with four guest ales as well as continental beers on draught and bottle.Food Here is excellent.Through to the rear is a sister pub,the Lady Of man.
From Rigbys,turn left out the pub,then first left again,walking past Moorfields station.You will find the Lion Tavern on the corner.
Eight beers on handpull,this is in the National inventory of pub interiors.Also specialise in cheeses.From here,trace your steps back to Dale st,turn left.Walk for about half mile,you will come to the Crown and anchor.A multi roomed pub,with a list of all beers available on the wall by the entrance,as well as a long list of continental beers.Note,they serve thirds of a pint here,alongside normal measures.Beer festivals held regularily.
On leaving here,trace your steps back,and cross the main road walking past the travelodge,cross the next road,you will come across Doctor Duncans,a Cains pub.Full range of their beers available,food is quite reasonable.
Leave here,and head up towards Lime St Station,to the immediate right of here you will find The Crown.A traditional liverpool boozer,tetleys and two guests here.Beer is competitively priced.
Leave here,turn left and walk straight up past the vines,(no real ale at time of writing).Up to the top of the road,turning left at the bombed out church.Walk up here and you will come to the Fly in the Loaf,another Okells pub.A long,wood panelled interior,eight real ales,alongside continental lagers available.
leave the fly,turn left,walk up the Hill to the Philarmonic,a Liverpool institution.Walk in here,buy a pint,a bit pricey,and take in the ornate interior,another national inventory pub.Also,pay a visit to the gents toilets,they're famous!
This brings us to the end of the walk,hope you enjoyed it!
The new bar in liverpool that has been opened for about a year now, in the place of the Old city pet shop in queens square, LLoyds bar. This bar is a great place to be on a friday and saturday nite, in fact its a great nite out everyday of the week, the atmosphere inside the bar is great, the security always as for Identification to keep out the kids. In the past 12months that i have been going there i havent witnessed any trouble in there, the prices are very reasonable and the music is great it suits all ages. I would recommend this place to anyone!
This is the most heavily populated area for students, with Liverpool Hope's halls of residence in Childwall & University of Liverpool halls at the far end of Penny Lane as well as hundreds of student houses. However, it’s also near where I live so here’s my thoughts about a few bars you might visit in this area. * Yates's: on Allerton Road. Don't go on a Saturday night unless you like LOUD tacky dance music. If you're over 22 you'll look really out of place. It is common to find 16-19 year olds in there. On a Saturday night people get quite dressed up - the men in shirts & trousers, and the women in mini skirts. The prices are quite reasonable though. There's special offers such as vodka kick for £1.70 and a doubles bar. It's a nice place to go on a Friday afternoon and they also serve food. * New York Café Bar: on Allerton Road, next door to Yates's. They play a mix of pop/rock/retro music and the clientele is of a higher age group (20-45 on average). A nice little bar but fairly pricey. Don't expect more than 20p change from £5 if you buy a pint & a Bacardi Breezer. They also have a doubles bar for £1.70. Very clean tables, comfy seats, and a generally nice atmosphere. During the day they have chrome tables & chairs outside, although it's shaded so don't expect to get a tan! * Pod: on Allerton Road. It was too busy so we didn't go in. Apparently you can wait 20 minutes to get served in there. Looks quite classy though. * Richmond Tavern: just on the edge of Prince Albert & Church Road. A lovely pub. There were kids in the door way as we went in so I guess kids are allowed up until about 9pm. Good range of drinks at the bars, ashtrays regularly changed (I don't smoke but my friend was), and nice clean toilets. I saw people buying McCoy's crisps too so 10/10 for snacks! * Penny Lane Wine Bar: on Penny Lane (no I hear you cry!) A good mix of music, somewhat similar to New York Café Bar but looks a bit shabbier. I couldn't get a pineapple Breezer but they have most beers and a good wine list. A bottle of house wine costs about £8.25. We arrived just before last orders so had to stand for about 15 minutes. Nice atmosphere, but less shiny than the other bars. * The Rose of Mossley: on Rose Lane. Not a place to go for an exciting night out, but great for pub meals. It is a Big Steak pub and food is served from midday to 9pm, Monday until Sunday. Children are allowed until 9pm and there is a no-smoking dining section. It's not as late or lively as going into Liverpool city centre, but I'd recommend the bars in Mossley Hill.
It's a question on the lips of all students in Liverpool, is it a change for the better: The finch and Firkin was great, loads of people, music, games, pub quiz and more..... but then it closed and for ten weeks we've been without our local.However last week saw the opening of the Brookhouse (the pubs original name... ask my parents!!) an It's a Scream pub and today I went for the first time. It's brighter, louder, busier but you can get a money saving Yellow Card (bonza) and better food(?). However tonight no football was shown live (boo) and the pub quiz wasn't on (that's why I went today! Will either ever return ,let's hope so. Overall though it's a change for the better with more comfy seats but then where has that third pool table gone. If you are comming to Liverpool to study you'll soon meet the Brookhouse, and I hope "It's a scream" for you!
This has been a popular haunt of me and my friends for many a year, since school! (but don't say anything.....) I suppose it was designed to appeal to the snooker and pool fans (loads and loads of tables!), but somehow mad clubbers, metal fans and most of the general public all seem to end up there of a week-end! Live sport shown on big screens attracts crowds during the day, and dj's prepare the crowd for a saturday night! This is more like a stop-off before you go clubbing or to a more up-market venue. Drinks used to be hideously cheap, but bottles can be quite pricey. Vodka & mixers, or a pint, is the best way to go. It can be full of blatantly underage teeny bopper clubbers in minute outfits of a week-end, and the music has definitely gone more "dancey", but still a great place to go on your night out.
I have been going to Yates in Allerton Road for quite a while now. They did it all up recently and I have to say it does look a lot more classy, but maybe it is too bright!! The best night to go to Yates is a Friday, its a good place to meet friend before heading off to town I ts always easy to get a taxi outside and it will cost a bot a fiver to get to town. The other good nights to go are on a Monday or Wednesday as these normally always have something happening there. I would recommed you go there
