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.

This is a busy pub, but the staff cope well so even if its busy you do not have to wait long to be served. We went every evening before going into the town, the prices are reasonable and the food great.

Thought we would try this traditional looking pub for a meal despite visiting a great place the night before. Big mistake. Quite busy with what looked like locals having a drink. Nobody eating though.Good selection of beers. Ordered 1 starter and 2 mains. Despite few diners no starter after nearly 30 minutes.Food then turned up just before I went looking.Altogether!... More

Busy but friendly location serving no nonsense food, good beers and organised hospitality. A good meeting pace and place to do business over a meal
