Liverpool – Pub and food recommendations?
Spending a couple of days in Liverpool next month and would appreciate a heads up on where’s good to go for a nice pint of an evening. Preferably a good real ale pub with nice atmosphere and no tellies or karaoke.
Also any good curry houses or anything? All city centre as won’t have car with me.Posted 6 years agonealyMember

On Mathew Street The Cavern Pub and FlanagansPosted 6 years agofizzpupMember
leaf is excellent for food, really food anywhere around bold street. If you fancy a Chinese cant recommend big bowl noodles enough they are really friendly nice food well presented and cheap.
for drinks it depends what your after but if its a good atmosphere and great selection of beers then the ship and mitre is brill although a little out of the way, (they have a beer menu) rigbys is also good or the lady of mann but then again i can’t stand mathew street it just doesn’t suit me so.Posted 6 years agokonagirlMember
“Preferably a good real ale pub with nice atmosphere and no tellies or karaoke.”
Depending on which bit of the city centre you are staying in either:
– Ship & Mitre (Dale St), great beer selection, good pub food. Also Rigby’s (Dale St, pub food) and The Lion Tavern (Moorfields). Tapas at La Vina (opposite Rigby’s) is quite good if you need something more substantial in that area.
– Philharmonic (Hope St, by the cathedrals), usually 5-8 beers on tap, only listed urinal in the UK, can be busy.
The curry houses are mostly along Renshaw Street, so the Phil/Bold St area is closest. But there are loads of good places to eat, depends on your budget!
EDIT: And as Binners suggested, the Baltic Fleet serves good beer, so if you are staying in the vicinity of the docks, it’s a good bet.Posted 6 years ago
Good suggestions so far.
If you fancy a pint whilst you watch a film then check out FACT by Bold street. Oh, you said no TVs!
I remember going to the Dispensary and really enjoying a hand pumped Cains cask lager (the local brewer) and really enjoying it. I was more or a lager drinker in my uni days.
Fly in the loaf on hardman street (not far from Philamonic) has a good selection. Don’t know what its like now though I wouldn’t have gone there on a weekend a few years back.Posted 6 years agoBustaspokeSubscriber
Dispensary on Renshaw st,great little Pub top selection of beers,even though it’s 15 miles away it’s my local!Posted 6 years ago
The Grapes behind the bombed out church,the fly in the loaf & the Philarmonic good selection of beers in all of them.
Down the other end The Ship & Mitre and Rigbys.
Another excellent one is The Shipping Forecast on Slater street,they’ve got Doom Bar on draught there 🙂
Sorry folks, don’t realise there had been some more replies since I last posted.
We checked out the Philharmonic (made sure I had a wee in the listed urinal), the Baltic Fleet (dunno if it’s always like that but was wonderfully ramshackle during our visit, good beer and nice warm fire), Doctor Duncans (little spoilt by loud sweary blokes talking about putting women in their place) and fell in love with the Ship and Mitre. Great selection of beers draught and bottled, good whiskeys, nice people and great food courtesy of the chap through the little hatch.
Good couple of days, thanks for the recommendations all.Posted 5 years agosweepyMember
I used to work at the swan inn in liverpool, It was biker/student bar, but with a good mix of others, and largely freindly. Top real ales as well.Posted 5 years ago
That guy probably didn’t have a swastika, it was probably a 13- but with the 3 backwards, cos it had been done in a mirror I think. Actually a nice bloke.
It was twenty years ago, but i’d recommend it highly. (And I do mean ‘highly’)
