Four of the best beer gardens in Liverpool – and where to buy nearby

by Housesimple on 6th June 2018

With the city looking forward to a three-month heatwave this summer, Liverpool’s beer gardens are becoming more tempting by the day.

Especially if your home doesn’t have an outdoor space, or you just prefer your beers on tap, it’s good to have a friendly local on hand where you can wile away the afternoons.

To help you find the best pub gardens Liverpool has to offer – and maybe a new property in easy distance – here’s our top pick of the city's finest, and a few homes for sale nearby.

 

Ye Cracke

, Georgian Quarter

A classic 19th-century pub with a leafy beer garden and oodles of history, Ye Cracke attracts a wide range of patrons from local students to old regulars. So it’s no surprise the beer garden is one of Liverpool's favourite places to soak up the sun.

After whiling away a sunny afternoon, you can stroll home past the city's famous cathedral to a three-bedroom house in Lamport Street. It's available for just £77,500 in a 50% shared ownership scheme.

 

Allerton Hall Farm

, Woolton

For a family feel outside of the city centre, try Allerton Hall Farm. This Farmhouse Inns Carvery offers classic pub grub and a friendly environment, but most importantly the beer garden in huge. Affectionately known as the ‘pub in the park,’ it’s easy to see why.

The leafy location doesn't mean one of you has to be the designated driver, though: you can live in a four-bedroom townhouse just a 15-minute walk away. Surrounded by parks and filled with luxuries such as underfloor heating and Siemens appliances, we think it’s worth every penny of its £270,000 price tag.

 

Dovedale Towers (aka The Dovey)

, Penny Lane

Once home to a wealthy industrialist and later to Freddie Mercury, this impressive building is now a pub with a warm, community feel. The spacious beer garden has plenty of tables, so it's a relaxing place to enjoy a pint in the sunshine.

Just over a mile away is this spacious four-bedroom semi-detached house for £215,000. With a flexible, open-plan living and dining room, as well as a decked garden, it's perfect for entertaining when you want to bring a few friends back from the pub.

 

The Botanical Garden

, Baltic Triangle

If you prefer trendy to traditional, this hidden gem’s ideal. Located in an old industrial courtyard complete with graffiti and resident DJs, it shuns the usual beer garden fare for a large and inventive gin menu, served with Mexican food. Plus it gets the sun all day.

When it's time to go home, this three-bedroom townhouse in Coburg Wharf – priced at £340,000 – is just minutes away. With a large terrace overlooking the marina, it's the ideal place to watch the sun go down.
