user reviews of the County Court Hotel, Woolton

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

On a recent visit to Liverpool, we just had to return to Woolton Village which in our opinion is one of Liverpool's hidden gems. There are about a dozen very good pubs, all of which serve cask ales. One if not the best is The County Court Hotel in Quarry Road ( The Quarrymen became The Beatles of course and you can sea Eleonor Rigby's gravestone in St Peter Church nearby.) The landlord John is a spiffing fellow and his wife Jackie a very convivial lady. Helen the barmaid keeps things moving and everybody's glass filled, and the clientele couldn't be more friendly. However there was a rumour that due to brewery politics, the management will be moving down the road to open in a new place. On our next visit we'll have to visit both places. Oh, what a nuisance!

We took the 74 bus from the city centre to Woolton village and a nice lady on the bus suggested visiting the local church to see the headstone of Eleaner Rigby, but our main reason for travelling to the village was to have a couple of pints in the County Court. This was our second visit and John the landlord welcomed us as if we'd never been away. Plenty of real ale and humour from the locals. The County Court is , in my humble opinion, one of the must-not-miss pubs in Liverpool.

Jackie and John are exceptionally friendly and will know your name once you have been a few times. They have only had the pub for a year or so but have built up trade enormously.
Friendly regulars and good cask beer. Great little pub and much better than anything nearby

A local chap in another pub took us there in his car and gave us a quick rundown on the history of the Crown Court and police station opposite. Very interesting. Then told us to try this pub. Wonderful lunch-time drink. Fantastic beer and really friendly staff and fellow drinkers. Made friends for Facebook. Will definitely go there again the next time we're in the area.

Decent corner local, with very friendly staff as others have said. Real ale on tap was decently kept on my visit. We asked for a top-up on the first round, but afterwards the pints were poured to perfection.

Pleasant , friendly, you feel very comforable. Nice landlady. Beer is at best average and too often poor. My rating is low because of beer standads and not the pub or staff.
