This is a beautiful art nouveau building from the outside, the interior is stunning too right through to the gents' toilet! (I discreetly waited for a quiet moment to show my wife the tiles and mosaics.) Elsewhere the eye is just taken from feature to feature. For all its amazing original fittings and artwork, it is an everyday comfortable pub.

This is a beautiful building but unfortunately the positive ends there. We went for a drink after a concert at The Philharmonic. A table and chairs were placed at the side of the bar and as it was a busy night we were pleased to be able to sit there. However one of the staff was collecting glasses and kept... More

myself and a few friends visited her for a drink yesterday when you firt enter it looks tiny and you enter the bar straight away, but then once you have ordered your drinks there are a number of lounges where you can go and sit and enjoy your drinks, Rooms are full of architecture and very pleasing on the eye...

Popped in a for a quick drink before going to dinner, great place very busy but service quick and efficient, good choice of gin but would have welcomed garnishes other than the norm, lemon /lime. What's wrong with orange, juniper berries, cucumber etc to go with the lovely gin choices they had it would really make a difference.

From the outside you know you're in for a treat here....the interior is fabulous, large room, smaller rooms and men's toilets which even surpass the toilets at the Princess Louise in London......and not forgetting the beer selection was excellent, and nowhere near London prices....we didn't eat there but I would expect great dining..... If you're visiting Liverpool, this is a... More

We ordered a buffet for 28 people and met sandwiches and chips at the dining table. They were not prepared and everybody went home hungry.

I love this place. The building, the opulent side rooms with their chandeliers and the ambience make it a wonderful place to meet for a drink or a meal. I had booked a table in the dining room which is upstairs for a family meal. It was a Saturday afternoon, not peak time so we should have had plenty of... More
