Free entry to this pub it’s downstairs didn’t see any wheelchair access. Got served quickly beer not over expensive and music was great. Lots of memorabilia around to buy. Well worth a visit right opposite the Cavern Club.

Excellent live music place. Heard the Kappa band twice there the same week, and they are fantastic. It was insanely loud, so bring earplugs - seriously ! Free admission and a good selection of ales.
