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.

We walked in and walked back out again. The pub is tiny and whilst full of character is not worth bursting your ear drum! There are tons of lovely pubs around, just not this one

In the middle of Liverpool nightlife sits this well known pub. Larger than it looks and certainly a night bar and not a local pub

A famous pub from the Beatles time. Probably as original you can expect from this time period. Good atmosphere, friendly staff, fare prices. Can be crowded in the evening and weekend. Nice place to get your pint and relaxing.
