6 cosy pubs in Liverpool perfect for Autumn in the city

Starbucks have pumpkin spice back on the menu – it can mean only one thing – the end of Summer is fast approaching. 

With this in mind, as the season begins to change, people will want to swap out a day in a beer garden to a warm and comfortable pub. Here’s a list of cosy pubs we think are perfect as the leaves begin to fall, and the dark nights start creeping back in. 

The Bridewell

Liverpool pubs

The Bridewell in Campbell Square has got a great reputation for its unusual and fascinating bar area, in the cells of this former Liverpool lock-up. Close to Liverpool ONE and the Albert Dock, the Campbell Square favourite has been named Pub of the Year 2022, thanks to its cask ales, and a range of craft kegs and continental beers.

You’re always guaranteed a warm welcome from landlady Fiona Hornsby and husband, Dominic, who’ll be happy to chat and regale guests with stories about the pub where, in its former life, Charles Dickens worked as a special constable, and which was even used by the US Military in WWII!

Baltic Fleet – Wapping


The Baltic Fleet is a Grade II listed building. The traditional 19th Century “Dock Road” pub is still doing exactly what it was made for – giving their guests a warm welcome, serving up good food, and a a great choice of liquid refreshment. This place is perfect to warm your cockles infant of their log burning stove, and while you’re there you might as well enjoy a good bowl of Scouse. 

The Monro – Duke Street


Did you know The Monro appeared for the first time on a map in 1750? It was actually two merchants homes joined into one. The pub still reflects a lot of its original design, and their open log fire adds to the ambience of one of Liverpool’s oldest and most loved pubs. They have recently decided to change their menu concept going from gastro pub to Greek street food. 

The Blackburne Arms – Catherine Street 

Considered by many as a focal point in the heart of the Georgian Quarter, The Blackburne Arms continues to regenerate and is fast becoming, to locals & tourists, as one the ‘coolest’ part of the city! The gastropub serves locally sourced fresh food. The welcoming atmosphere puts you instantly at ease, and is helped along by their hearty menu – expect things like Scouse pie, steak & chips, as well as dirty hash browns – pure comfort. 

Philharmonic Dining Rooms- Hope Street 

A traditional pub with a very unique character. You can’t deny the sheer beauty of the Phil’s interior, even the mens toilet is famous (for all the right reasons). It was originally built as a gentlemen’s club in 1898, Their smaller rooms with big comfy couches are a great place to escape the chill. 

The Pilgrim – Pilgrim Street 

Taken its name from the street on which it stands, The Pilgrim as we know it has been with us since the early 1980’s. The basement style pub has many booths, a long table and is probably one of the cheapest places to get a drink in the city centre. The rustic brick look makes for a very relaxed atmosphere, and is a big hit with students local to the area.
