Liverpool One Bridewell, Real Ale Pub & Kitchen and Cask Ales – in Liverpool City Centre

Liverpool One Bridewell is THE destination venue set in the heart of this magnificent city – meeting all your needs regardless of the occasion. Set in a truly unique and Grade II listed, 1850s-built former gaol and police station, our heritage points to visits from some iconic guests including Charles Dickens (employed for a day in 1860, as a Special Constable to research a book), Frankie Goes to Hollywood (who rehearsed here in the early 1980s and wrote most of their hits in one of our cells) and Dame Joan Bakewell (who launched her most recent book here) to name but a few.

The Bridewell’s the ideal choice – whether you want to chill after some retail therapy; have a family meal or an intimate romantic dinner with that special someone in one of our four original cells; host your wedding or big birthday event; entertain clients; soak up the sun’s rays (and raindrops!) in our gorgeous courtyard or simply enjoy a quiet drink with close friends. Liverpool One Bridewell’s got the lot.
