Crosby has a flourishing bar scene. Although a little quiet at times during the week, weekends are usually standing room-only in the village. Top watering holes include:
George HotelVery popular with a (often very) young crowd at the weekends. Good for cheap eats during the day.
Blues' BarGood laid back atmosphere with a mixed crowd.
The VillageGrab a granny. The Grafton of the north end.
StampsNice split level bar with excellent kitchen. Sophisticated crowd, quiz nights on Wednesday.
The CrosbyReal boozer very good for the football. Especially popular with the blue half of the population.
The BirkeySome would say the premier pub in the area. Split between a very comfortable lounge and a slightly grungy rock bar. Good times to be had by all.
The Crow's NestOne of the few remaining traditional pubs in the area. Unchanged for many years, this establishment has a very loyal following. Call in for a pint of excellent beer, but don't count on a seat any night of the week!
The Royal Hoteladdress: Waterloo22 bedrooms and a good standard restaurant. The bar is well frequented during day and evenings by locals as well as residents
