“Hidden Gem!”

The Swinging Arm Birkenhead
Ranked #3 of 26 Nightlife in Birkenhead
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 March 2014 via mobile

I've been to The Swinging Arm numerous times now, and always have an absolutely brilliant time here.

Each visit has been at the weekend when the live music is on, and what a fantastic selection of bands they choose to put on here. Mostly rock music, but always very good quality and very, very entertaining. 'The Swillers' were the band on my last visit, I'd never seen this band before but will definitely be seeing them again. The lead singer was very entertaining. It was this visit in particular that has prompted me to write a review.

There has always been a good atmosphere here when I have been, it's not the type of pub that makes you feel like you have to be on your guard.

There's plenty of room at the bar and plenty of friendly staff ready to serve, so there's never much of a wait (if any), which is something I tend to find happens in a lot of bars these days.

I have visited this pub with my friends, with my boyfriend and with a mixed group, and found it suitable and welcoming for all parties.

To summarise, this really is one of the finest pubs in the area, with very interesting decor, and I would highly recommend a visit here to anyone, especially those who are into their rock music or motorbikes.

Well done all at The Swinging Arm, keep it going.

One of the best pubs I’ve ever been in. Small pub with great atmosphere, remarkable live music and interesting décor.

On the Wirral ten minutes if you are Liverpool City Centre. Best pub if you like live rock music. Always a friendly atmosphere.
