This was a seriously excellent experience. We had a 5 course tasting lunch. The attention to detail was evident, the flavours were varied, and by turn intense and subtle, oh, and surprising....Memorable dishes - the confit grouse with hazelnut, the halibut with fennel and crab...More

The Art School Restaurant is completely unique. We have tried to embrace the features of the original building and have blended in modern facilities. With warm lighting, a viewing window through to the kitchen, a relaxing bar and a fabulous dining area. Situated across the street from the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and a short distance from both of Liverpool's cathedrals, the restaurant is the first of its kind in Liverpool City Centre. We will offer innovative, seasonal menus developed from the finest local produce our region has to offer, including an exclusive range of organic spirits, superb 200 bin wine list and a world class Champagne selection. Delivered by an international team of experienced chefs, waiters and sommeliers, the restaurant has a focus on mentoring young, local talent and apprentices. Starting from £25.00 for 2 courses, our menus are aspirational, modern and contemporary. We aim to be affordable and inviting for all to enjoy.
