Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Corn Market is a proper old Liverpool Pub. Great comfy leather chairs and chesterfield sofas. Decor looks like it has not changed since it was built - amazing fireplace. Large outdoor seating area. Just off Fenwick Street set back - there are two entrances...and you can walk through from one bar to another. 5 Minutes from top of Cavern Walks and Liverpool One areas.More

The Cornmarket Pub is a pub I always look forward to visiting whenever I'm in Liverpool City Centre ,it's a pub that offers great real ale's and fine pub food and you're always made to feel so welcomed here. I love the look of this...pub ,it's split into two ,each room has it's own distinct character ,a cool looking serving bar ,wonderful furnishings and decorated tastefully throughout ,big screens to enjoy the sport and lots of seating options both inside and outside in their beer garden ,it's just a great pub to chill out. We were here on a bitterly cold Thursday early afternoon ,we were greeted warmly by the barmaid ,we ordered and were served in pristine condition Marstons Brewery " Wainwrights " ale ,we grabbed a table were we chilled out ,warmed up and planned out the day ahead while sipping our ale's. A big fan of this real ale ,it's such a well balanced pale ale ,lightly hopped with delicate fruity scents ,a citric aroma ensuring a slightly bitter finish that's just so refreshing ,at 4.1%ABV it's such a good session ale,it was just so good being in such a fantastic pub enjoying a great pale ale sat with my twin brother Stephen who is the best beer companion in the world. We really enjoyed our pale ale's in here before we moved on and as on every other visit to here we had a great time. The Cornmarket Pub is easy to locate along Old Ropery. Opening hours are; Monday to Sunday,11.30am till 11.30pm. A great real ale pub ,one I highly recommend you seek out if you're in the area.More

We have been across to Liverpool as often as we can and usually gravitate towards Mathew St, Albert Dock etc. But while waiting for a show to start we ventured in to The cornmarket. after all the hustle and bustle of the city centre it...was very pleasing to find this quiet calm lovely bar. No noise, just calm. We love the place and visit regularly now.More

We’d walked in (and out of) a lot of pubs before stumbling on The Cornmarket. Lovely beer, an whilst not a huge menu, the food was very good, and very reasonably priced. Add to that, lovely staff, and a beer garden out back, which just...finished off a positive experience. We’ll be calling in again when we return to Liverpool.More

A group of friends and I have been lucky enough to drink here over the past two weekends and many times before then, and the Cornmarket never lets us down. Great service (thank you!), good choice of beer, spacious and no TV/loud music to fight...against for conversation. Thoroughly, thoroughly recommended.More

One of my favourite pubs to visit in Liverpool is The Cornmarket Pub ,a pub I've been visiting for many a year. This pub looks superb ,it's a traditional pub ,two roomed ,wonderful decor and furnishings,a solid wood serving bar ,tv's and big screens to...enjoy the sport and plenty of seating options spread throughout this pub both inside and outside in their beer garden,it's just a great pub to unwind in. On our latest visit my twin brother Stephen and I were here on a Monday afternoon,we ordered Madri Beer,these were served iced cold and sparkling,we just kicked back,chilled out and took in the great pub we were in. My beer was really good,Madri beer seems to be in every pub nowadays ,it's a collaboration beer between Molson Coors Brewery and La Sagra Brewery to create a light continental lager style beer ,it's a light,hoppy and unpretentious lager style beer bursting with taste,so easy to drink,very refreshing ,it was just so good being in such a lovely pub enjoying a freezing cold beer. We really enjoyed our beers in here before we moved on and as on every other visit to The Cornmarket Pub we had a great time. The Cornmarket Pub is easy to locate alone Old Ropery.

The Cornmarket is a brilliant pub that offer a superb food and drinks range and is one of the oldest pub's in Liverpool.This superb pub is housed in the Britannia building in a great area of the city centre. This pub dates from the 18th...century and is full of character.The interior to this superb pub on the Old Ropery side of the pub has a high end look and feel with superb wood panelling throughout the pubs interior that was taken from the Reina Del Pacifico that was a clipper ship.There are superb item's throughout the pubs interior and fantastic seating option's and it's an excellent place to relax and unwind with a meal and a few beers. If you enter on the Moor street side you will enter into a traditional pub interior that's a bit different from the other part of this pub as up until the late 1960s this was the Bull's Head pub before it was swallowed up and became part of the Cornmarket. We have visited this superb pub hundred's of times over the years as its cask ales are superb as is there meals.We came here for a few beers while walking around this area of the city centre and it was really busy.On our visit we had a Madrí brewery lager and a cask ale each which were superb and as it was a very warm day we sat outside as it has a superb beergarden. The Cornmarket is well worth visiting and is very easy to locate from James street train station turn left onto James street and you take a left turn onto Fenwick street.(This is my third review of the Cornmarket). Opening Hours. Monday-Sunday-11.30-23.30. Public Transport. Bus Stop. James street bus stop. Train Station. James street train station.More

Great pub with loads of history. Good range of ale, good bar food. Was once the regular meeting point for Blue Funnel seafarers and plenty of wall photos to testify. Give it a try, close your eyes and smell the history. You won't be disappointed.

If there's one pub I know I'm going to visit on any trip into Liverpool city centre I take its The Cornmarket Pub ,a wonderful back street boozer I always look forward to visiting. I love the look of this pub ,dark wood features abound...throughout this pub, a solid wood serving bar dominates the main room, pubby decor and furnishings, tv's to enjoy the sport and plenty of seating options spread throughout this pub both inside and outside in their beer garden out back, its just one really good pub . We were here on a Thursday afternoon, pub was busy with a great atmosphere, we were greeted with a smile by a very pleasant member of the bar team, we had a study of their real ale's and we both opted to have Blacksheep Brewery pale ale ,these were served in excellent condition, we just kicked back, chilled out and planned out the day ahead while sipping our real ale's. I am a big fan of the pale ale from Blacksheep Brewery, its a well crafted pale ale, hints of toffee, a delicious aroma and aftertaste with a slight bitter finish, a totally refreshing brew, so refreshing, so tasty, it was just so good being in such a lovely pub enjoying a quality ale . We really enjoyed our pale ale's in here before we moved on and the great atmosphere so much so that we ended up staying for another pale ale each before we moved on and as on every other visit to here we had a great time. The Cornmarket Pub is easy to locate along Old Ropery . Opening hours are; Monday to Sunday, 11.30am till 11pm. A wonderful pub,one I highly recommend you visit if you're in the area.More

Popped in for a post lunch visit as its decades since I cut my teeth drinking in this pub when I first started work in the City. It hasn’t changed a bit. It is a testament to the mantra “if it isn’t broken don’t fix...it”. I wanted to show my pal the wood panelling in the main lounge room, it’s like being in a rich aunt’s sitting room. The panelling was taken from the breaking up of the ship the Reina Del Pacifico and it still looks as good as it did when I was a young man. A very comfortable lounge with some good photos of ships and the city throughout. There is a great variety of beers and lagers, I opted for the Black Sheep and it was perfect. There are little comments from famous folk on walls that are quite entertaining. I asked the barman if there was still access to the adjoining pub The Bulls Head. It was a very unique situation being able to walk into one pub but out of another without leaving the building. He said the Bulls Head was gone now but was part of the Cornmarket and it is often used for private functions. The barman kindly opened the access door to the old Bulls Head and switched on the lights so I could have a look around. What a fabulous trip down memory Lane I had with fantastic service from the barman. The pub wasn’t full but other visitors, like many pubs in Liverpool, were very happy to spend a few of their minutes having a chat with us. Makes me proud of the City. This is a must visit pub.More

Can you clarify your question, it feels as if it's not relevant to the Cornmarket pub so probably needs to be posted elsewhere???
