The old City Pride was pulled down along with the building some years ago. The new building houses the new City House pub run by Youngís. It is a modern pub in a modern building, but, the ales are still made in the traditional manner, thank goodness. It may have opened in 2004.

Expect to find a pub decked out with a railroad theme and you will be disappointed.The name comes from being across the street from Liverpool Station and not by being a shrine for railroad buffs.It is a nice pub none the less.
