This was a favorite hang-out for the Beatles and many other rock bands, which also served as a safe haven from their screaming teenage fans.

Went for a drink after watching a movie nearby, gave us a chance to discuss the film in depth. We had lager and lots of gin. Good atmosphere, very busy but got served quickly, really enjoyed ourselves.

Was visiting the city and had heard good things about this pub. The two DJ’s were very rude to a friend who asked about singing. Will not be going back and would not recommend this dump.

Famous for its association with the Beatles as it's situated across the road from the equally famous cavern club. The Beatles used to drink in here and there are photos of them on the walls and you can even sit in the same seats !...More

Nice pub, great memorabilia but horrible pint! Tasted like the pipes hadn't been cleaned in a very long time! Won't be returning unfortunately.
