The Georgian Quarter being the area containing multiple Georgian era buildings (including college and university campus buildings amongst a number of pubs, bars, restaurants and student halls). The Caledonia pub has been something of a stalwart in Liverpool’s Georgian Quarter, sat on the corner of Catharine Street and Caledonia Street.
The team behind the Caledonia have recently had a bit of a revamp in regard their menus and also the beer that they stock. For the evening we attended, the pub had chosen to undertake a Tap Takeover with the help of Carnival Brewing. There were three different cask (the Skosh Lime Leaf Pale, Ribbons of Distinction Idaho 7 and Carmen) beers pouring, along with another three keg and plenty of back up choices stored in the fridges behind the bar. The revamp of the menu is to introduce a broader appeal, with ‘burgers’, nachos, fried chicken (seitan in the case of the fried chicken burgers we tried) and a variety of sides, light bites and other dishes sitting on the menu.
The food and beer were both great; unfussy casual eating and great local beer brewed in the shadow of the Royal Liver Building. Hopefully we shall see more of what the Caledonia offer with their beer range going forward, as having four rotating cask lines and three kegs which aren’t tied is a healthy level for small but perfectly formed pub.
