Peter Kavanagh’s is a real ale gem in on Egerton Street. Though the pub saw extensive refurbishment in 2015, it’s still managed to keep its unique personality with wooden interiors, vintage decor and stained glass windows. This is a historic pub, proven by the snippets and quirky pictures hanging on the wall around the place.

The Ship & Mitre

Pub, Pub Grub, $$$

With an interior that mimics a ship’s galley, The Ship & Mitre’s nautical theme is stepped up to another level. Don’t worry, we’re not talking gimmicky anchors all over the place — this is far from it. This boozer is a classy nod to the Liverpool’s dockside relation and offers the largest selection of ales and continental beers in the city.

A must-visit for any Beatles fan, this pub is packed with nostalgia and great beers. Not to be confused with The Grapes on Roscoe Street (which is also a brilliant pub), this boozer is most famous for being where The Beatles used to go before and after performing at The Cavern Club.

Thomas Rigby's

Gastropub, Pub, Pub Grub, $$$

This Grade II listed boozer is named after wine and spirits dealer Thomas Rigby and sits on Dale Street, slap bang in the centre of the city. Visitors can benefit from table service, a great food menu, and can also enjoy a pint in the courtyard over the summer. Draught ales are regularly changing here as the pub’s owner Okells introduces a range of beers throughout the year.

The Dovedale Towers

Pub, Pub Grub, $$$

A popular boozer on the famous Penny Lane, The Dovedale Towers, or The Dovey to locals, is bathed in history. John Lennon used to play shows here with The Quarrymen and rumour has it that Freddy Mercury even once lived here! In current times the pub has been refurbished to a level which reflects its illustrious past, so sit back with a pint and try and imagine yourself back in the 1960s…
