Me and my better half decided to take in the city of Liverpool on a rare day off together. The first place we stopped was the pumphouse and we were not disappointed. A greene king pub by trade really excelled itself in staff friendliness and knowledge, we even came back for some food and a drink before our journey back... More

Was expecting more of this pub, especially the real ales. They all appeared to be dark malty beers. Don't get me wrong, they were well kept but it would have been nice to a have a choice of light hoppy beer as well. Didn't eat in here but looked typical chain pub grub.

Visited on a works Xmas party, meal started at 1330 and finished around 1700 far too slow. The meal was mediocre at best, poor quality. I must say that the table staff were excellent and very attentive. Question: would I return ? Probably not there are a many better places to go in Liverpool.

Thank David G
