because of its uniqueness, well worth seeking out. However, a total tourist trap with awful service.

If you go to Liverpool you must go for the decor (and toilets...) but go once, for one drink only.

Lunchtime last Saturday chokka busy, all tourists, apart from a couple of the staff not a Scouser in the pub.

No surprise at all. Understaffed at the bar, mediocre bar staff, half the beers were off and indifferent quality beer when we eventually found a couple (the ubiquitious Doom Bar and Oakham Citra) still on.

Tourist trap; very complacent indeed, probably even more so since the Paul Mc Cartney Carshare gig got it so much publicity. I would say wasted opportunity but I'm sure it rakes in money for Nicholsons even though it's a 5/10 pub (even allowing for the great decor).

Lunchtime visit with the Mrs. Very quiet but gave us a chance to look at the building and visit the gents, (with permission!!!). A must see in Liverpool.

Had an okay dark brew here another one of those Formby ones) but noticed the corner bar seems to be a bit frayed round the edges. Get the feel it kind of rests on it's laurels sometimes (especially the 'restaurant' upstairs).

Seems like my experience here has been similar to most of the other reviewers (well parts of theirs are applicable to mine). I have been in here a couple of times but haven't bothered seeing as most people have talked about the main things about the place, e.g. the very nice decor in the bar and toilets. The beer selection has always been pretty decent when I have been in. It's pretty pricey and I have never had a problem with getting served but the beer in this pub seems to be kept at a very warm temperature. I had a pint of 'Musselburgh broke' by Knops and I found it to be warm. Worth a visit to see the interior of the place but I wouldn't recommend hanging around for too long as there isn't much to the place on the actual drinking front.
