Treat as a tourist attraction as opposed to a pub - once again found service to be indifferent and the ale on this occasion (a Dark Isle brew) was undrinkable. I used to say just drop by for the one to have a look at the interior but now I'd say drop by to look at the interior and don't even bother having a drink here.

Visited Sunday afternoon along with The Lion and The Crown.

First visit for a decade, seemed as busy as ever but found last table in the main room. Beers as below, but London Pride was drinking well, NBSS 3.5.

Yes, it's geared up for food, but glad I popped in.

The reviews below pretty much sum this place up. It's worth a visit once in a while to admire the architecture. But it very must rests on its laurels in terms of service and ale selection. I found myself in here again yesterday. St Austell Nicholson's Pale Ale is the regular beer. Guests were Sharp's Atlantic & Doom Bar, Fuller's London Pride, St Austell Proper Cracker, Exmoor Mild, Adnams Ghost Ship & Black Sheep Best Bitter. Fine for visitors to the city. But there are many better Nicholson's pubs alone around the country.

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).
