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.

With Nicholson’s pubs first established in 1873, the fleet has become synonymous with warm hospitality, heart pub food and a speciality stock of ales. Timeless classics are bolstered by a seasonally-changing range of specials on the Nicholson’s menu, with favourites including home-breaded chicken Kiev, or a sharing cottage pie. Also enjoy old-school desserts and nourishing breakfasts.

At the Nicholson’s bar, expect to find 25 guest ales changing with the seasons, a resident cask master, and carefully-matched ale and food pairing suggestions. Compiled with equal care, the drinks list features easy drinking wines, artisan soft drinks and classic cocktail mixes.

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

    For Pub food and drink it was expensive and the food very poor. The quality of food was poor. In no way could it match that provided by our Local Greene King pub. The dinning room was clean and tidy and staff good.

    When we arrived in the restaurant there was nobody else there and it was completely empty. We placed our drinks order and our drinks duly arrived.

    We then placed our food order and waited 1 hour and 10 minutes for our food to arrive. After we'd been waiting for 30 minutes, I saw a member of staff go into the kitchen carrying a well known supermarket bag - obviously he'd just nipped out for food supplies!

    By then the restaurant was completely full- but no one was actually eating anything.

    When the food arrived, it was just ok, certainly nothing special.

    We are unfamiliar with restaurants in Liverpool. We were visiting our daughter who has just started at uni and, along with her friend, thought we would seek out a restaurant that cooked a roast dinner, which was what our daughter had requested.

    We did eventually receive an apology from the waitress, but the whole dining experience was very disappointing.
