There were three handpumps on the bar, and I selected Windermere Pale, a long standing favourite of mine. For a fairly weak beer - 3.5% - this has bags of flavour and it was in good nick here.
Apart from one or two people on the benches outside I was the only customer at about two on a Monday afternoon, presumably they do better at more popular times.
I wonder if this place is connected to the similarly named Sanctuary Bar on Lime Street? A quick scan of the internet suggests it is not.
