user reviews of Stamps Too, Liverpool

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

A bit of a run down, rough round the edges shop conversion which has been renamed The Waterpudlian though it is pretty much unchanged from when it was Stamps Too. They had four ales on and the pint of fab Four was drinkable.

Paid a return visit to Stamps Too on Saturday. In my opinion, it's no longer Waterloo's best pub. The Queen's Picture House now has the best range of ales and actually stocks real cider. Stamps did have 5 ales - Liverpool Organic & Bier Head, Brimstage Sandpiper & Parker Centurion Pale Ale & Dark Spartan Stout. This place does feel more like a proper pub than the Queen's Picture House and it's certainly more down-at-heel.

Went in here at 5:30 last Saturday afternoon. The place was absolutely packed.
Couldn't get near the bar. No idea what ales were available. A mate eventually returned from the bar with a couple of pints of Cheshire Gold which was a nice, light ale and well kept. Good to see a bar which is clearly thriving just a pity I couldn't enjoy it due to the crush.
I should have stayed in the nearby Wetherspoons (the Queens Picture House) which was spacious and holding a beer festival.

@matt beer you were obviously very unlucky on your visit as there is always 4+ real ales on normally(6 from thursday to sunday) the four on of a weekday is to ensure quality through quieter periods of the week an artisan cider on draught is forthcoming. if there was two on they were either cleaning the lines or actually changing the beer over to a new brew im a regular in this pub and you can see up to 24 different real ales a week, not bad for a grotty little boozer(ive seen 10 differnt ones appear on a friday night alone.....

This was the best of the 4 Waterloo pubs we tried yesterday. It's also very handy for the train station. The front opens up onto the street providing a continental-type feel. The interior itself is fairly bland with a single room containing a stage for live music. Around the walls are pumpclips and pictures with musical associations. All 6 handpulls were occupied on our visit - Brimstage Trappers Hat, Southport Golden Sands & Cyclone, George Wright Moche Piwo, Robinsons Hannibal's Nectar & Boggart Rum Porter. Whilst there is no real cider available (Strongbow will shortly be replaced with Thatchers Gold according to the barman), there is a good bottled selection of ciders including Thatchers Katy, Old Rascal, Green Goblin & Gwynt y Ddraig Black Dragon. Whilst possibly not the best drinking environment in Waterloo, this place warrants a visit for its beers.

Long narrow pub near Waterloo Station, live music a feature. At least 5 real ales, usually local and small breweries, excellent quality. Can be very busy at peak times.

Contemporary, music-oriented bar across the road from Waterloo station, deep in suburban Liverpool.
As noted, it's dark and slightly dingy (unlike it's sister pub in Crosby) , although hardly disgusting. Personally, I prefer this to a completely whitewashed, character-free bar, and it does give it more of a 'pubby' feeling.
The one room stretches up to the bar, in the top left hand corner, and there is free Internet opposite this- a rarity!
Mostly popular with a younger crowd, but there was a mixed clientele on my visit.
Beer-wise, it's pretty strong, with plenty Locales from Southport, Liverpool Organic, Liverpool One etc. Golden Sands from Southport was good as ever.
It's an all-round decent place, not worth the trip out of the city centre on merit alone but if you're heading to the excellent Volunteer Canteen nearby, there's every reason to pop in here.

First visited here about 2 months ago and was impressed with the range of beers (6 on tap at the time.

The interior is a bit dark and grotty but that didn't put me off.

However, my last two visits I was less than impressed. I visited last month and the only beers they had on tap were Southport Sandgrounder and another (didn't make a note of its name).

And I stopped off yesterday (11/09/10) on my way to the Southport Beer Festival. All they had on tap was Liverpool Organic Brewery Hoptopia and another (again, I didn't make a note of its name).

I have a friend from the South West who is visiting Liverpool in November and I told him what a great find Stamps Too is and that we will have to come here. To be honest, I don't think it's worth the detour!

This has the appearance of a wine bar & is on a main road just a few minutes from Waterloo train station. Inside it is long, narrow & slightly dark with green furniture & tatty tartan carpet. The place could probably do with a lighter & more modern decor to lift it. All over the walls are music memorabilia & hundreds of beer mats/pump clips from all the real ales they have had. It prides itself on being a music/entertainment venue & has a small stage down one side. Beer wise it is a utopia for LocAles. Southport, Wapping, George Wright & Peerless were all represented & well kept. Well worth a visit & being so close to the railway station makes it very handy.
