Was in the Fly last weekend. It was reasonably busy early on a Saturday evening. But there were plenty of staff to enable quick service. The Okell''s ales on were Bitter, MPA & Steam. They also had Robinson''s Dizzy Blonde & Kirkstall Black Band Porter & Three Swords. My porter was nice.

Found this place to be quite soulless in all honesty. It's a big room of a place with a large u-shaped bar with a marble top, what I would expect a swanky bar in America to have. Beer on the bar included- Sharps Rye IPA, Okells Bitter, Okells MPA, Kirkstall pale, Sonoma Track, Bowland Brewery Hen. I went for Sonoma at 3.30, decent beer. The bar it quite big with a few seating areas, when I was in there was music playing and sky sports on the television. It's a reasonably interesting pub, the lights were a bit wacky. Some interesting keg beers as well I don't think I would return however.

Visited in September during a visit to Liverpool. An Okells pub but had the atmosphere of a busy Spoons. No music but very noisy due to the volume of people. The bar was several people deep in places but managed to find a spot and get served reasonably quickly. The pint was a bit short, and I was going to request that it was topped up after I had paid, but despite trying to get the barman's attention as he handed me my change he promptly disappeared to serve someone else. A loud "excuse me" was either not heard or ignored.

Pint was fine, just would have preferred a full pint. It wasn't even that there was a large head, the head was acceptable but there was a gap of nothingness above it!

Wouldn't stop me going again though.

The Fly In The Loaf was the third of eight pubs we visited in Liverpool on Sunday. To save repeating myself, I won't review the others. But I will request for the Merchant to be added to the site. The Fly In the Loaf always seems to be busy. But the ale choice can be inconsistent. As an Okells pub, it always stocks one of their ales. On Sunday it was their Bitter. In addition, there was Sarah Hughes Dark Ruby Mild, Firebird Two Horses & Pacific Gem, Jennings Sneck Lifter, Robinsons Trooper & Salopian Oracle. Popular for those watching the football on the TV and generally has enough bar staff to ensure service is prompt. Has a decent bottle selection too. Still one of the city's best pubs.

Large trendy boozer. Good quality Okells IPA. Noisy, and this without any entertainment.
