This place is well worth a visit. On a recent evening trip 6 ales were available and one draught cider. I managed to get a window seat and watched the world go by whilst drinking a nice IPA.

The Head of Steam is still a reliable port of call in Liverpool city centre. This was our third stop yesterday after the new Wetherspoon's (the Captain Alexander) and the new Cosy Club. Unusually, there were no Cameron's ales on during this visit. The ale selection was Small World Long Moor Pale, Black Lodge Duel of the Iron Mic & What Once Was, Theakston Bitter, Titanic Plum Porter, Abbeydale Damnation & Wilde Child Centennial. The cider was Lilley's Firedancer. It was quite busy for a Tuesday evening. But we were served quickly and we managed to grab a large table at the back. Nice place.

What a post by wirral - confirming the name change, already posted!

And telling us that an unknown ale was good...

As reported by Blue Scrumpy this pub is now called the Head of Steam.
5 or 6 ales and 1 cider available today. I had an IPA (can't remember the name). It was a well kept ale. Definitely worth a visit.

The Abbey has now closed and the place has been refurbished and re-opened as a Head Of Steam, run by Cameron's Brewery. The bar has been moved to a central position and this place is much improved. The Abbey was a place that I might pass and wonder in to see what was on, but seldom have a drink there. The Head Of Steam is more of a destination pub that is worthy of a visit in its own right. I've been here 3 or 4 times now. I've been when it has been quiet and I've been when it has been packed. Food is served. Live football is shown on the TV. Service is by knowledgeable staff and they offer a CAMRA discount. But it can take a while when they are busy. Ales on my December 2nd visit were Brew York Little Eagle, Cameron's Strongarm, Road Crew & Cola Bottle Stout, Leeds Pale, Exit 22 Golden Cascade, Chapter Parabola & Neptune Black Percula Chocolate Orange Stout. The real cider was Orchard Pig The Hogfather. Great new pub.
