The Baltic Fleet, 33A Wapping, Liverpool, L1 8DQ – Visit Now
Sitting on the dock road, to the south-east, is the Baltic Fleet; a mid-19thcentury pub named after the crews of Siberian whaling ships who used to frequent it. There are secret tunnels leading from the cellar to the dockland, and another leading to the old red light district of Cornhill which provided the ship crews with their most pressing of needs – beer and prostitutes. Although the clientele has now changed, in look, history and character, the Grade II listed Baltic Fleet is arguably Liverpool’s most interesting surviving pub.
Now the cellar is used for brewing a host of exceptional ales in copper kettles making the Baltic Fleet the only brew pub left in Liverpool, with a rotation of 136 recipes for beer. 136! Throw in a log burning fire, stripped pine tables, duck egg blue walls and high windows on three sides, The Baltic Fleet is a must-visit boozer.
