This delightful small, side-street pub majors on real ales and cider, and is a huge and revealing contrast to the mighty Philharmonic just up the hill. It has been run by the Joyce/Ross family for over thirty years and consists mostly of an inter-war refit. In typical northern fashion, there are three rooms surrounding the drinking lobby which forms the lively heart of the pub. Fixed seating remains from the refit, albeit re-upholstered, and there are also bell-pushes in the rear snug. The doors to the three rooms each have attractive inter-war glazed and leaded panels (as do the double doors from the street entrance). In the back room is a moderately ornate plaster ceiling The pub is named after a great Liverpudlian, William Roscoe (1753-1831), poet, historian and anti-slavery campaigner.
