The Roscoe Head, the only pub in Merseyside and one of only five UK pubs to appear in every edition of the Camra Good Beer Guide was first published.
Opened in 1870, the Roscoe Head is one of the few pubs in Liverpool, if not Great Britain, to have survived the onslaught of the large pub chains.
Consisting of a main bar, two small rooms and a tiny snug, conversation definitely rules at this establishment. There is no jukebox or fruit machine - just good beer, traditional lunchtime food and a warm welcome, all delivered by friendly and well-trained staff.
Their regular customers are from all walks of life and the backroom debates are always entertaining; whether it be politics or football on the agenda the banter is always lively but good humoured! This is a cosy four roomed local pub where conversation and the appreciation of real ale rules.
Six hand pumps feature Tetley Bitter plus 5 changing guest beers mostly from small breweries from the Fines
Managed by members of the same family for over 35 years, this historic pub commemorates William Roscoe (1753 -1831), Liverpool historian, poet and leading campaigner for the abolition of slavery.
