Profile information

CAMRA member, proper Beer (and wine) snob, drink mostly Liverpool (home) Crosby Formby and Southport.Like pubs with small rooms and atmosphere where you can get a seat or stand at the bar. Watch Liverpool games, but otherwise prefer to have telly off. Not too fussed over price (if I'm only visiting a pub ocassionally, what difference does 20p a pint really make?) but attitude of staff/owners, decor and ambience crucial. Don't often eat in pubs, and dislike pubs where drinking has become a sideline to the food operation.

Carnarvon Castle, Liverpool

The other reviews give a fair picture of this pub. It's very narrow, but goes back a bit, so it always feels crowded. Unadventurous beer choice at bargain prices, down a side street opposite Marks & Sparks. Closes early evening (7.30 on my last visit). Good place for a shopping pint if you don't fancy The White Star, The Globe or Doctor Duncan's.

Original Farmers Arms, Eccleston

Promised to be given an unusual pub decoration from its most famous regular, in the line of Phil Thompson leaving The European Cup in his local back in 1981.

The Inn Beer Shop, Southport

After a sticky start when trade was very slow has evolved into a pub with an off-licence. The off-licence side is just magnificent, I travel from Liverpool to buy my bottled joy here, so tend to buy a lot at once. Very good for American and German beer, good selections of British, Belgian and other Euros, and plenty of oddities. Good selection of glasses and other beer paraphenalia as well.

However, has become a very popular drinking establishment, so it now stays open late for an off-licence (but not pub hours) and is very crowded early evening. As a pub it's expensive, hard to get a table and not exactly a traditional style of venue, so I only recommend drinking there if your preference is for bottled foreign beer (The Guest House and Scarisbrick are short walks away), but as an offy I don't know any better.
