137 South Road, Waterloo, Liverpool, Merseyside, L22 0LT

An excellent opportunity waits for an experienced Publican

The Liver has an established reputation for great value food and drink, in a comfortable, social environment. The Pub is famous locally for attracting family diners and an excellent programme of regular entertainment, including live sport and music at the weekends. This large, detached site sits on a busy main arterial route between Liverpool and West Lancashire, adjacent to the main drinking and dining hub of Waterloo. Internally, the Pub is well laid out as a two room operation, comprising a small snug/games room and the larger main drinking and dining area. Externally the Pub has a large garden which could be transformed into a delightful space, extending dining covers through the warmer months and would help to make the Liver a true destination for the local community
