I stepped into sample Liverpool's famous "scouse"... The dish that gives its name to the "Scousers". A humble broth that was made splendid by the good and attentive service. Great ambience and not very crowded. Reasonably priced, like everything else in Liverpool. Try it !

Hello, well I would say Yes. When we were in there in the Evening, there was about 6 Young Children Downstairs with their Parents, so at 14, I would say No Problem at all. Enjoy !
