Pubs in Liverpool are decreasing in numbers. Some have closed, some have been knocked down which is very sad. Others are being used for other services by companies such as insurance etc.
Dixies on Prescot Road (The Old Stanley arms)has been empty for some years. However now, there is signs of it being done up. Does anyone know if it is going to be a pub still or is being turned into something else. Maybe flats?
here is a phot I took a few days ago.

What is or was your favourite pubs, where are they now?

I never thought I'd see so many pub's close down, or change their use,just seems hard to believe?
                                             This is now,one of our regular watering holes,which is in Egerton st. just off Catherine st. and a place where you you could meet just anyone,as it has quite a varied clientele!The ale's good too,and you can bring your dog!



There are some fascinating stories attached to the place,and the strange,slightly spooky furnishings! Originally called the "Grapes" it now takes it's name from a former landlord,and has been a pub for over a hundred years!
