We were persuaded to come to this pub as it had great reviews. Sadly on the day it seem to had to run out of all cask beer. So sad.

Stopped by here for a pint while rambling around the city. Very old inside, with an older clientele. Had a few games of pool and the drinks were cheap. Probably wouldn't return but good to see an old Liverpudlian pub.
