Bel posto e buona birra. Affollatissimo perche' c'era la grande finale di Champions League 2018,ma tutto sommato uno dei migliori posti dove vedere le partite di calcio a Liverpool!!!

Excellent food and the service was very good. Overall the facility provided us with a perfect location to celebrate a birthday and the staff went out of their way to assist

Overall experience was very good. The atmosphere was incredible for the Champions League semi final, waitress service was a bit slow but that's understandable due to how busy the place was & how difficult it is for them to navigate their way through so many bodies. Will be going back again.

First time I had been and it was great. Booked for 4 persons so we could have a meal and drinks while watching the football. The booking process is easy ( would recommend booking as it seems very popular) Asked for a table by a TV and they sat us right in front of the big screen :) Once sat down the very pleasant staff take your orders so you never have to go to the bar. The service was great, never had an empty glass. The food is great value and the all day breakfast we ordered was very tasty. Overall it's a wonderful venue for live sport with tv screens everywhere. Efficient service with a smile and not too pricey either. Would recommend it to all. Well done McCooleys

Great bar with friendly helpful staff. Loads of atmosphere. It's a bar that seems to attract people who are nice to be around. Drinks are reasonably priced too. One of our company had the food. He really enjoyed it. I've been to McCooley's many times and it's my No.1 bar 😀👏🏻

Not one to give bad reviews but o can't not ! Staff here are not interested in serving customers with what is on the menu they just want to pull pints by the looks of it . Orders a pitcher of Sangria from the menu priced at £10 Staff member came back after 10 minutes saying they have no wine !?? I say no wine in entire place !? He went ask manager who then FOUND a bottle of wine !? However after waiting another 10 minutes for it to be made was charged £15 for the pitcher !? More than advertised? Very odd misleading and disappointing. I should of listened to friends and left but was so thirsty paid for the disgusting Sangria ! After asking WHY ? we were charged more than advertised!? Was told coz they had to use a different rose wine ! Which was in fact very very POOR quality !! Very poor !

Fantastic night at McCooley's. Brilliant pub in the heart of Concert Square, the food was great and the band The Reform were fantastic! I'd definitely recommend this place if you're coming to Liverpool for a night out.

Overall we had an enjoyable experience. The food and drinks were reasonably priced. We had a few hiccups whilst we were there, however McCooley's staff dealt with the issues very professionally and swiftly. In particular we enjoyed the live music in the evening.
