I’d wanted to try here for awhile so I was looking forward to visiting.
Unfortunately I was very, very disappointed. My husband’s food came out ages before anyone else’s and was cold. My friend’s food when it finally arrived was so cold it felt like it had been in the fridge.
Staff were very apologetic but I won’t be returning.

Popped in here on a Saturday afternoon and enjoyed a few of the house cocktails. Friendly staff and interesting place, with hundreds of rums on offer.

Cocktails were very nice, a little pricey but still good.

Would recommend for a visit.

Thank Mark E

Group of 8, various dishes. Paella ok, chicken average, pies not great, hanging kebab poor and gimmicky, schnitzel brutal. Asked for a few starters as nibbles for the table while we waited for our mains. Nibbles arrived half an hour later which were gone in 5 minutes (baby potato tots nice, pork crackling was very poor, calamari not great). Then waited over an hour for mains. Staff seemed put out when asked where our mains were. Tables arrived over half an hour after us served first. Waste of money. Avoid

We enjoyed a lovely evening at this pub. Unfortunately the meal I ordered wasn't as I had thought it would be but they changed it for a different dish at no extra charge. Very impressed. Would definitely go again next time we are in Liverpool.
