Profile information

I visit pubs for their character, conversation, architecture and quality beer, though I'm not fussed about micros and will go for the fastest selling beer. I do like Brew Dog a lot though.

I've visited 75% of the pubs in the current Good Beer Guide (7,000 in total over years)

Crown, Liverpool

Started a mini-crawl of Liverpool heritage pubs here on Sunday lunchtime.

Untouristy crowd, good banter, cheap sandwiches, too many beers and the Pride was very average (NBSS 2.5), but worth a visit to see the interior and enjoy the atmosphere.

The Philharmonic, Liverpool

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 Lion Tavern, Liverpool

First visit since the Heineken bust-up on Sunday lunchtime with a fellow Proper Pub lover from Stafford.

Only us, joined later by a younger bloke, but the Landlord was tremendously chatty, even if he is a Liverpool fan (!). Last time here on Friday night it was rammed; that's the best time to come.

The pub itself is gorgeous, one of the UK's very best. Six or so beers seemed ambitious, and Otter & Golden Glow were OK rather than outstanding, but I'd still say this is an essential visit in Pool.
