How about 'The Boathouse' opposite N1 Husky and Tom Hall's Tavern at the PierHead opposite Cunard Buildings (Custom House). There was also a pub where you went downstairs to, with a ticker-tape machine at the entrance....think it was The Oriel if my rusty brain cell is right.

Anyone remember the Gaslight Club in Cumberland Street opposite the Poste House? Bert Whalley was mine host and there was probably as much business done in there as in the shipping offices.

Hague, Eldersuk is correct. It was The Coburg and a pub we did frequent sometimes. There was also another which was one street further back that had very odd closing times so we would go there if the Coburg closed on time !!!

Rothesian.
The pub opposite the shipping Federation was" The Red Lion", next one along towards Canning Place was "The Trawler Inn". In Canning Place was "The Flying Dutchman", "The Ymuiden"," The Custom House", two clubs in Canning Place, "City Members Club" and "The Neptune". Just off Canning Place in Sth Castle St was "The Belvidere" reputed to have the best draught Guiness in Liverpool also "The Dukes Crown" around the corner from Canning Place towards the Sth docks. In "The Dukes Crown" the Guiness tokens given to the Guiness employees on the Guiness boats for their free Guiness was accepted. Fervent draught Guiness drinkers travelled long distances to drink in the above two pubs.

Used to enjoy a drink in the 'The Roscoe Arms' located at the top of Renshaw Street. There was one on the Dock Road just before Millers Bridge and on the corner of Blackstone Street. I think it was the Foresters Arms but then, that may have been the barmaid. Forty odd years ago.

The Slaughter House used to have ledgers under a glass case featuring slave records. I doubt if they had auctions of actual slaves there, as slavery was in Britain itself was very rare.
We had a stupendous night out there in about '78? from Riversdale, featuring a PSNC Cadet who played the bagpipes superbly. The landlord turned off the jukebox and used us as house entertainment. I'll remember the lad's name in a moment, bear with me .....

Has anyone mentioned The A1 at LLoyds, Mabels, The Sandhills, The Dominion and The Bootle arms. I cant recall the proper name for Mabels, or many other pubs in the Nth dock Rd perhaps a memory jolt would help me.

OK all you Liverpool experts. If you start at the pierhead and walk north up the dock road, what is the first pub you come to on the left hand side?

The weekend's coming up and it's time to give in.
The first pub on your left is the LIVER INN, Crosby!

No prizes for anyone.

A pub I've passed hundreds of times but never been in. Not exactly Liverpool but close enough . The Bee and The Stump on the Wallasey side of the Dock Road. Many a man on standby ended up in these pubs due to their close proximity to the locks. And the Dolphin (Cathcart Street). Almost fifty years since I have been in above.

Seem to remember a pub called Tom Halls on Mann Island. It was on a central reservation more or less beneath the overhead railway. Dark green ceraminic tiles on the outside. Supposedly the best pint of Guinness in Liverpool. This maybe because it was within stones throw of where the 'Lady Gwendolyn' discharged

Bill Davies mentioned the Stump in Wallasey, this was actually the Blazing Stump ( a nickname) the actual name was something more prosaic like the Queens Arms or some such name.
After I left the sea I had a pub, the Lord Exmouth, in Birkenhead.
At this time the landlord of the Blazing Stump was an ex Chief Steward (Stan something) and I used to relieve him when he went on holiday.
It was a great pub, always busy what with dockers, merchant seamen and locals because of the betting shop close by.
Had some great times there, especially after hours in the afternoons.
Peter (Pat) Baker.
