The Crown is one of Liverpool’s many grand showpiece pubs dating from the Victorian/Edwardian period. It was rebuilt by Walkers Brewery in 1905 as a response to the magnificent Philharmonic built by rival brewer Robert Cain, and designed by the same architect, Walter W. Thomas.

It’s an imposing building with eye catching gold painted stucco lettering displaying the pub name and ‘Walkers Warrington Ales’ (photos 1 & 2).

It has a grand interior too with an amazingly ornate plaster ceiling, wood panelling and a large and elaborate copper fronted bar counter.

The pub is next to the entrance to Lime Street station and is constantly busy, serving food all day from breakfast onwards. It has been building its reputation for good ale over a number of years and is now one of the city’s top beer pubs.
