user reviews of the Liffey Bar, Liverpool

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

I think the last comment about this plave being a plastic paddy place is pretty accurate. I came in here and saw flags that said 'you can't beat the Irish' and about the Easter Rising of 1916. Seemed friendly enough and a bit less chaotic than the Blarney Stone down the street. Guinness only cost 2.40 and was better than Pogue Mahones so it might be worth checking this place out as it's one of the better places for a Guinness around Liverpool from my experience.

Bog standard plastic Paddy pub. Barmaid had a face like a bull chewing a wasp when I tried making conversation. I won't be in any particular rush to return, to be sure.

This is a pub that I've passed many times. But I finally ventured in yesterday to see if it had any real ale on, as it got a mention in the local CAMRA guide recently. There was one solitary handpull at the end of the bar. But alas it was unclipped. The keg range was Tetleys Dark Mild, Carling, Caffreys, Worthingtons, Coors Light, San Miguel and of course Guinness. As the name suggests, this is an Irish bar with quite an authentic feel. It's busy and boisterous with Irish music playing. There appears to be quite a few live acts. The bar area was very crowded. But there were enough staff to keep everybody reasonably happy. Tables were at a premium. I'm not sure I'd return. But it was at least better than I had anticipated.

Not the best pub in town but the Guinness is good and the staff very friendly. Live music, and good atmosphere

Came here by accident with my sister and her Greek boyfriend.

Oh dear! Got a round of a pint of Strongbow and two bottles of Bud for less than a fiver though.

Never again!

Someone's idea of an Irish bar - god knows who but, to be sure, they certainly couldn't have been Irish.

Seven Guinness fonts, diddley diddley music, quotes by Wilde and Joyce this is a bar that wears its Irishness on its green sleeve, with the blue painted frontage it certainly looks the part. Nice victorianish interior with bare board and old tiled floors, an extraordinary panelled ceiling and etched windows with fake oil lamps hanging in them. In addition to the Guinness it also sells Carling and Stella, Strongbow and the smooth bitter and dark mild from Tetleys. The staff are attentive and the punters a good mix of ages and types. It is basically one big room with the bar area to the side with a raised floor, there is also a raised area at the back with a large drop down screen, other screens and machines are spread round the room. Furnishing is mainly tables and chairs, that match, plus a little bench seating and a couple of old barrels with table tops. Toilets are down stairs and there looks to be an outside area but I didnít explore that. It seems to close about 10pm on weekdays.
