A 2-day event on Bank Holiday weekend 25-26th May, Farm Feast is set to be a great celebration of our region’s best food, drink and music and we are excited to be involved.

Welcome to the website for the Ship and Mitre

The Ship & Mitre

The Ship and Mitre is known to many as Merseyside’s Premier Real Ale pub. It was Liverpool & District CAMRA Pub Of The Year in 2009. The name derives from a combination of two previous names, The Flag Ship and The Mitre. An original 1930’s Art Deco building, the interior has been changed to resemble that of a ship.

The Ship & Mitre has recently launched a bottle shop in Liverpool City Centre, in the shop you will find bottled ales, ciders and all the weird/wonderful beers you have come to expect from The Ship. Please visit our new website for a list of products, photo gallery and a comments/review section, or better yet take a wander round as the shop is less than a 10min walk from the pub.

The Ship and Mitre serves an excellent range of cask conditioned real ale, imported draught and a wide selection of German and Belgian beers. It is well known amongst CAMRA members and is regularly featured in Merseyale and The Good beer Guide. There are 15 handpumps offering real ales and ciders from microbreweries all over the country. Each brewery only delivers one barrel of each brew, which is why we have three menu boards placed around the pub so you don’t have to walk around looking at all of the pump clips (as some of you still do!) Each of the barrels is cask conditioned and with this and the hard work of the best cellar man ever, the customer receives an excellent pint!

In addition to these ales, we also have a wide range of beers from around the world. From German Pilsners and Czech lagers to the famous Strawberry Fruli. In the fridges, there are 100+ German, Belgian and American beers which all need to be tried!

How to find us…

If you are travelling by car and wish to put us in your Sat Nav, our address is 133 Dale Street Liverpool L2 2JH. By train, Lime Street Station is within sight of the pub and Moorfileds is a five minute walk along Dale Street.

Beer Festivals

The Ship and Mitre holds four Real Ale beer festivals each year, where we have at least 80 real ales available. We have 12 ales on the bar, approximately 10 on the stillage and many more in the cellar. We now have one Belgian, two German beer and an American festival each year too. An unsung hero of all Ship festivals is John Faz, who pours the ales from the barrels in the cellar during cellar run hours, 2-5pm. Food is available throughout the festival; bratwurst sausage in a roll, cheese board, and of course our famous scouse. Entrance to our beer festivals is always FREE – more money to spend on good quality beer!
