    I got a few Liverpool Pubs yesterday, Three of them worse for wear, and one of them in the finest bit of health...


    King Edward Pub, Roberts Street Hard to think that this pub is worth £3m! I used to think that this pub should be conserved, but looking at it now, It has no real merit about it and the land could be used for something like a nice tower block. Having said that, the location isn't exactly ideal. You have two major roads surrounding two sides of the site, and the nearest bus service is varibly in-frequent. Tricky one really!


    The Eldonian?, Vauxhall Road/Eldon St, Vauxhall Hard to think that this and many pubs alike were once the centre of the community. Just shows how things change over time ay? Actually, this pub still has most of it's fixtures and fittings left in it; I could see it all through the un-drawn window as I walked past!

    EDIT: This pub is (or was) called "The Glass House" as seen on Page 2 of the "How Liverpool used to be" thread.


    Pub on Mere Lane/Heyworth Street, Everton I must confess that I have fogotten the title of this pub which stands in the shadow of Everton Library! But what a nice looking pub this is! All that mock-tudor detail looks great on this building and is something which would be greatly missed if anything were to happen to it.




    The Granton Pub, Granton Street/Breckfield Road, Breckfield I bet there were many a laugh in here once! But I think that the bottom image sums up what devistation this part of the city has endured. Breckfield was once a thriving community with a real community spirit. Now, estates surround one side of Breckfield Road, whilst on t'other side, terraces are derelict and waiting to be pulled down. I think that Breckfield Regeneration need to look at themselves and think about what they are doing. I think that they are going about this in the wrong way. It isn't the terraces that need demolishing, it's the estates. True, the terraces need a bit of tidy-ing up, but demolision isn't the answer. They aren't doing this area any favours by demolising swathes of streets that are now derelict. If anything, they are putting Breckfield at a larger disadvantage.

    On that note, I will get me coat!

    I very rarely stay in a pub for more than 2 pints and love crawls round old traidtional pubs. Went down Vauxhall Road after a match recently, must have taken in 6 or 7 pubs and ended up in the Vauxhall Vaults on Vauxhall Road near Tithebarn St. About ten years ago I did a Scottie Road crawl, there nust have been 9 or 10 pubs then but sadly only 3 are left.

    Hi lord edward
    I know of a pub called the "Liver" but it`s on the corner of South Road in
    Crosby, also a "Fitzies" on the corner of Latham Street and Commercial Road.
    pubs were called by the people that ran them in the old days.

    Sadly yes as the density of housing reduces and staying in becomes the new going out. There are some areas of the city though where the number of pubs is still healthy and very few close, County Road for example.

    Does anyone have a picture of the Coffee House in Edge Hill? The actual building is still standing but has been turned in to a very nice house now - it is the one that stands next to the closed public toilets (mmmm!) and almost directly from St Mary's Church.

    Go up Wavertree Road, taskers on your left - straight on at the lights and before you get to the Bears Paw - between Taskers and Bears Paw Pub on the left there is a lovely reconditioned house on the left. It's on Wavertree Road before the road is joined up and goes in to Irvine Street towards the 'ozzy.

    I live above the Bears Paw Pub, its recently been refurbished and reopened, serving as a base for the Paddington Williamson Tunnels group.

    i was just consulting freddy o connor's book pub on every corner volume 2:south liverpool, and come across a pub on highgate street.
    it was called the bricklayers arms when it was pulled down. (page 53)
    it is under the heading Beer House, and closed in 1919....

    Hi all

    Could anyone get a picture of the Saddle pub. I believe it is on Fountains Road, Liverpool 4. This is the pub where, in the first story told about the origins of the Maybrick Diary, Mike Barrett said that he had received the document from his drinking buddy, Tony Devereaux, a typesetter at the Echo. In that first story, his wife Anne and Mike himself claimed they knew nothing about the Diary before the handover in the pub.

    Anne, who now calls herself by her maiden name, Anne Graham, is now claiming she in fact gave the Diary to Tony to give to Mike, certainly a strange scenario, and the Diary had been in her family since 1950 or before. Although note that this claim does not make it old and nor does it make it authentic.

    The latest news is that Mr. Barrett is going to be at the upcoming May 2007 Maybrick Trial at the Liverpool Cricket Club in Aigburth and threatens to "to tell the full and truthful story of how he came into possession of the diary and how the pressure of the world's media affected his health. He is also prepared to answer questions from the audience" according to event organizer Chris Jones.

    All the best

    Will see what I can do, but I wonder if it will still be there or not seeing as Fountains Road has pretty much been obliterated by estates. But, I will try and have a look for you this week. If not, it will be next weekend!

    Hope that I can find it for you!
