Welcome to Ye Cracke – A Traditional British Pub in the Heart of Liverpool

Unchanged for years, Ye Cracke is a popular traditional pub located on Rice Street, just off Hope Street, Liverpool. One of the oldest pubs in the city, it is a friendly pub with lots of comfortable seating areas, including a wonderful beer garden under the watchful eye of Liverpool Cathedral. Ye Cracke or ‘The Cracke’ is a place filled with history. Tourists come from all over the world to see the pub where John Lennon came whilst studying at Liverpool Arts College. 

Recently featured on the hairy bikers ‘Pubs That Built Britain’, Ye Cracke was entwined with John Lennon’s college antics and his personal life. Long before The Beatles he came
here when he learned his mother had been killed and often brought Cynthia here when they were dating.

Filled with Beatles memorabilia and historical drawings of Liverpool, this is a Liverpool pub not to be missed.
