Best pubs in Liverpool

Liverpool is a city with so much to see, it can get tiring at times. With Greene King pubs on hand,  you can duck in when you need a pick-me-up or simply some hot and fresh pub classics. And you’ll want to know where the best ones are. This is your Liverpool pub guide.


Ticket to ride

The most popular entrance into Liverpool, Lime Street Station, is the perfect place to start experiencing the culture of the Merseyside city. Grab a pint on the way in at Lime Street Central before embarking on your scouse escapade. Or scousescapade, perhaps? If you’re winding down on your way out of the city, book a table and relax with some hot comfort food and some final drinks before your train home. And if you live in the city, come to Lime Street Central for the sports — this pub has it all: TNT Sports, Sky Sports, the works. So come on down and start (or end) your journey on a high.


Over the ocean

Perched on the side of Liverpool docks, the Pump House is a beautiful testament to the city’s maritime history. Originally built in 1870 as a hydraulic pumping station, this building now serves seafood favourites as well as classic pub food. But what’s even better is its position. The docks are adjacent to the city centre and just a quick walk to Liverpool ONE shopping centre. So, if you fancy a pint after a long day shopping, or want to stop for lunch, you can’t go wrong with the Pump House.


Come together

The World Famous Arkles might not have actually reached a level of fame that extends around the whole world, but it does have a place in Liverpudlian hearts. Located just around the corner from Anfield, this pub is the perfect spot to come together and enjoy a pint before the big game – and to celebrate or commiserate after it’s over. Even outside of game days, the sports don’t stop — the Arkles also shows the action all year round, making it a great place to meet fellow fans, while enjoying a good drink or hearty meal.


Good day sunshine

Some forget that a large part of the appeal of Liverpool is the beach. Head up north and enjoy the sun in the Freshfield. This pub is positioned just up the street from Formby Beach, a National Trust spot that’s stunning in the summer. At the Freshfield you can kick back and enjoy classic cocktails, a range of beer, wines, spirits and soft drinks, as well as our Greene King pub classics from the food menu. It’s also dog-friendly, so bring along your four-legged friends to enjoy a day on the beach.

Located in the popular student area of Smithdown Road, the Willow Bank tavern is a hotspot for locals, students and visitors alike.

Here, you can catch up with friends in the spacious beer garden, and even bring your furry friend along to this dog-friendly pub. 

More about Liverpool

Liverpool’s history can be traced back to around 1190, where it was first recorded as ‘Liurpul’. It wasn’t until 1207 that King John founded the city that would eventually go on to become the world’s first commercial wet dock and expand into a booming industrial hub of maritime trade. A hub it remains today.

Beyond its rich history, Liverpool is also home to the UK’s biggest Catholic cathedral and the most museums in a UK city outside of London. The city is also a hotspot for film and television production, with scenes filmed for Harry Potter and Batman movies. These make use of the Gothic architecture found throughout the streets, a unique look not found in many other locations.

Liverpool is also home to world famous sports teams and events, with both Liverpool FC and Everton FC located within the city limits. It’s also the birthplace of the Grand National at Aintree Racecourse. And let’s not forget that the city is a hotbed of creativity, birthing such talents as the Beatles, along with actors like David Morrisey and Jodie Comer, and many more besides. 

With so much to come and experience, Liverpool is a fantastic day or night out and will leave you wanting to come back for more each time. If you’re visiting, remember to stop at Lime Street Central on your way out to round off your trip in style.
