Albert
Hand pump
A very nice three room pub with a stone floor in the bar and wooden floor in the lounge. I'm told the impressive interior with high plasterwork ceilings and some dark wood panelling is entirely fake.
Grade II listed building.

Fulwood Arms (Bas's) 2008: A converted shop with rather eccentric decor - candelabra, velvet curtain, black floor and dark red and black wallpaper - giving it a very dark ambience in the day-time, but probably rather nice on a dark evening. Even the gents has black tiled walls. I was offered a choice of dimpled mug or straight glass for my excellent pint of Copper Dragon's Black Gold. The menu - basic pub food - looks good.
Returning in 2019 I found the decor completely changed, much more "normal" and very pleasant. Sadly the real ale has gone.

Grog Shop Two shops knocked together to make a rather nice one bar pub. The new but traditionally styled furniture, woodwork and leaded glass go well with the old floorboards.

Lodge (Masonic) (Negresco) (Lodge Ale House)
ATM
Hand pump
The Masonic: A nice interior with one bar and a number of side areas, making a very large pub. Sadly none of the hand pumps were in use.
Negresco: Mainly a restaurant. Closed in July 2009.
Re-opened as the Lodge Ale House in 2010.
By 2019 it was just called The Lodge, and was serving quality real ale.

Maranto's This pleasant bar/restaurant has a rather good interior with lots of impressive fretwork and some fine Tiffany-style lampshades. There's a bar and a restaurant area on the ground floor with more space upstairs.

Old Bank

Opened in 2012, this is a nicely done one-roomed friendly pub serving good real ale. The interior, with stained glass and carved wood decor, is attractive and comfortable.

Que Pasa Cantina
Hand pump
A tiny counter serving two open rooms with bare brick walls and wood floors. 2 handpumps turn out excellent real ales. This used to be a "South American" restaurant but they seem to have given up the food.

Travellers Rest Very friendly locals in this small pleasant two bar pub. The bitter was unavailable on my visit! Food.
Now closed and demolished.

Aigburth Vale
Victoria (Aigburth Arms) Large up market two bar pub in the style of a food-oriented place but no food available as far as I could see. The Cains was in excellent condition. Red Dwarf's Lister was found under the pool table here.
In the twenty-one years since I wrote that about the Aigburth Arms, nothing seems to have changed except the name and the loss of real ale.

Ye Old House At Home A minuscule front bar, very small lounge with a serving hatch and a larger back room with no counter at all. Sadly this gem had been let go somewhat. Now closed and demolished.
