Happy St George’s Day! Today we celebrate the patron saint of England who died on April 23 in 303 AD.

It’s a national day, but no bank holiday sadly, celebrating all things English – and what better way to celebrate than with a trip to the pub?

Pubs up and down the country will no doubt be busy, with lockdown restrictions starting to ease.

Luckily, it means that pubs will have their beer gardens open so you can still celebrate.

Earlier in the month Daily Star shared 25 of Britain’s best pubs as part of our Great British Booze Off series.

The series was launched to celebrate the UK's finest drinking establishments as they start to reopen thanks to lockdown being eased.

The Bridewell, Liverpool

Once a Victorian police station, The Bridewell isn’t your average pub.

The Grade II listed building, which is tucked away in the Ropewalks area of the city, dates back to the mid 19th century.

The cells of the Bridewell are still used as seating areas, you'll see pieces of history on the walls.
