Traditional Town Pub, 3* Heritage Pub

The Belvedere closed in 2003 with the intention of converting it into apartments. It stayed closed for three years until Ivan Jenkins, who owns the Blackburne in the next street, offered to buy it and keep it as a pub. Possibly because they had been put off by the pub’s Grade II listing the developers accepted the offer and it reopened in 2006.

The original features like the superb etched glass, quarry tiled floor, sash windows on the bar counter and its two rooms, the bar and the smoke room (photo 2), were retained. The Belvedere was built in the second quarter of the 19th century and the distinctive windows and doorways were added in the early 1900s (photos 1 & 3).

It’s a popular community pub and customers include members of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra who allegedly nip in for a pint during performance intervals. There are four changing cask beers from breweries across the north of England and Wales. On Thursday evenings there is an open mic session and on Sundays an acoustic session from 5pm .
