Overall a lovely meal with both the lamb and beef steak main courses excellent and cooked to perfection.
The pate starter we had to share was disappointing but possibly because neither of us like "sloppy" pate. Nice choice in cheeses to finish off with an interesting glass of quince liqueur to go with it.
Service couldn't be faulted and definitely recommend the restaurant

Thank K H

Went here Saturday afternoon with a group of friends. From the moment we arrived we were looked after attentively by the staff even though a couple of us were late. The upstairs seating area is beautifully decorated and very welcoming. Large choice of dishes up on the board, took me a while to decide. I eventually went for the brisket of beef with risotto - the beef just melted in the mouth. Other friends had the lamb, the fish and chips, haloumi burger and steak. All agreed the food was very tasty. We shared a couple of cheesboards for dessert which finished the meal off nicely. The whole experience was extremely good - the only downside on that particular visit was that as we were the only people in for the majority of the time, the atmosphere wasn't at its best I imagine. They had more bookings for later on and I certainly wouldn't let that put anyone off as the choice of food and the restaurant itself is amazing. Great staff too. Thanks, will be returning.

Food is normal. Bet there is better fish and chips for that price. It's a quiet, kinda romantic. If you're looking for hearty food, go elsewhere.

We went twice to this restaurant, which was actually close to our hotel, and we really enjoyed ourselves each time. The food was very good and different from what all restaurants seem to offer in Liverpool (that is burgers and chips...). Nice platters to share and a great variety of wines to choose from.
Service was very good as well. We'll definitely come back if the opportunity arises.

Nous nous sommes rendus deux fois dans ce restaurant discret près de notre hôtel. Nous avons vraiment apprécié les lieu. Carte variée (par rapport à ce qui se fait dans le reste de la ville...) que ce soit pou la nourriture ou pour le vin (abordable). Bon service, attentif. Ambiance relaxante (ce qui change aussi des cantines de Liverpool).
A refaire si on repasse par là un jour !
