The architecture of the pub is outstanding. I expected to pay though the nose to eat there but was very surprised to find the menu good and the price very reasonable

Wonderful pub, went and was recommended to drink a pint of nicholsons own pale ale by the bar staff! Was not disappointed, got a free glass of bubbly from riding the local tour bus with partner which is a bonus! 10/10 deffo worth the visit.

We stumbled across this pub/restaurant in our walks and decided to give it a try. Very interesting decor and great food. Thouroughly enjoyed our dinner and the ambiance. Beutiful bar and great private room where we ate. A must do in Liverpool.

Definitely worth a visit. Separate smaller parlor rooms as well as larger dining room. Nice bar, with beer and cider in tap. Meals also served. Diagonally across from Philharmonic Hall.

We are very dog friendly. The only two areas we don't allow them is the restaurant and the grand lounge. Hope to see you and your dog here soon :)
