The Philharmonic Dining Rooms Liverpool is a simply stunning watering hole. Filled with intricate detail and plush furnishings, it is a popular spot for visitors to the famous Liverpool Philharmonic Hall opposite.

Since Nicholson’s pubs were first established in 1873, these traditional British inns have become synonymous with warm hospitality, hearty pub food and a speciality range of ales. As well as always featuring British pub classics like beer-battered fish & chips and gammon & eggs, the Philharmonic Dining Rooms menu is complemented by a rotating selection of pie, sausage & chop and fish specials for each season.

The Philharmonic Dining Rooms bar is always stocked with exquisite gins, warming whiskies and fine wines to pair with favourite meals, and there’s always a superb range of seasonal and regional real ales on offer. A constant at the bar is the St Austell-brewed Nicholson’s Pale Ale, made with Cornish Maris Otter malts, and a hand-picked blend of English hops.

A beautifully decorated pub filled with history, the Philharmonic Dining Rooms is a 12-minute walk from Liverpool Central Rail Station.

    Surroundings are lovely. The meal was very good. We both had the steak pie which I have to say was too large for me but this is not a criticism.
    Our waitress Annette was extremely helpful.

    The Philharmonic Dining Rooms - an ornate public house opposite the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, where we were going after the meal. The Dining Rooms are very ornate - Edwardian I should think and the tables well spaced. The service was very prompt, the meal - Beer-battered fish with chips, tasted good, though they could have provided some more chips. One member had a desert, which she enjoyed very much. The toilets were very clean , though only 3 and a bit small - perhaps ladies were few in number when this pub was built! Altogether we thought we might visit again sometime.

    Could not find a lift so unsuitable for persons with a physical disability. Food excellent,service very good

    The building is beautiful but the service and food were very poor. We waited almost an hour for our food and it was really badly made. My fish and chips were soaked on oil and the presentation of the food was really not attractive. I would recommend the place only for drinks.
