A Liverpool-Based Food, Drink and Lifestyle Blog

The Old Stables

Located at the end of a rather long and winding drive, the entrance to The Old Stables restaurant is every bit as grand as you'd expect for a restaurant located at a golf club.
It's tucked away in the leafy depths of Allerton, and if you didn't know it was there you'd probably never find it. Which, I think, gives the place a cool secret hideaway vibe (but can't be great for passing trade).


Sabrosa, Woolton

As we enter the second month of 2019 (can you believe?) I'm just about starting to make a dent in my 'to-eat' list i.e the restaurant edition of the Never Ending Story that's listed in the notes section on my phone. One of these places, and one I've been meaning to try for a while is Sabrosa, a fairly new and completely independent Spanish restaurant that has opened just outside of Woolton village. 


Côte Bistro

When it comes to French food the choice in Liverpool is small but decent. Cafe Rouge is (thankfully) gone. We still have the Bistros, all of which I know well and who will always hold a special place in my heart. Then there's Caveau in Woolton which I've never tried but heard good things about, and of course we have Bread and Butter whose simple, home-cooked plates really impressed me last year.


Liverpool Gin Distillery

The eagerly anticipated Liverpool Gin Distillery opened on Castle Street last month and with Christmas just around the corner I had the perfect excuse to buy some tickets for a snoop around.


The January Sales (Edible Edition)

I've said it before and I'll say it again: January is no time to start going cold turkey on everything you enjoy. I can't think of anything worse than having to go back to work after all the festivities with a vow of a New Year diet, a booze-free month or a spending ban looming over me. January is an excellent time for eating since everywhere is quiet and there are bucket load of special offers on.


Red Dog Saloon

You may well have heard of Red Dog Saloon, they've been open on Bold Street for a while now but I'm ashamed to say my first visit was just last week. I'm not really sure why, but I suppose in the flurry of new restaurants opening this year this one just slipped through the net. 

After all, I am just one tiny person and there's only so much eating my waistline (and my bank balance) will allow. With Liverpool now crammed full of new and exciting food-stuffs, American food sadly falls towards the lower end of my list.


Woolton Peach

You may recall from my previous post that there's been a few exciting things going on round my ways recently and one of them is the arrival of Woolton Peach.


Pig and Fig

When we moved out of our flat in the city centre 18 months ago, my number one concern was that I'd be completely out of the loop with all of the fun-food things going on in town. Thankfully, despite my fears,  there's actually loads going on outside of the L1 boundary at the moment and there's been not one but two incredible restaurant pop-ups right here in the suburbs over the past few weeks. The first of which was the inaugural event by Pig & Fig.


Liverpool Christmas Specials

Now that the 1st of December has dawned, advent calendars have been cracked open and somewhere out there our beloved Bublé  is shaking the dust of his tux,  I think it's safe to declare that the festive season has well and truly begun.

I'm glad to report that restaurants across the city are embracing the spirit of all things Christmas and have been announcing edible Christmas specials by the minute. Father Christmas better be putting me on the nice list because I've spent hours trawling the web and kindly found you all the best ones.

Revisiting Rumi

You'd be forgiven if you said you'd never been to Rumi by Bukhara. In fact, I'd forgive you even if you said you'd walked past but never been in, because on the outside this place is very unassuming. Like I mentioned the last time I went to Bukhara, this place looks a lot more like a cafe-come-takeaway than it does your typical Indian restaurant.




Roll up, roll up! There's a circus in town and this one is strictly for the grown-ups. I am, of course, talking about Albus Wolfgang's Spectaculum based inside the big top tent that has sprung up inside the Cain's Brewery village.


A Very Whittard Christmas

If you're currently in the depths of Christmas shopping despair and are looking for extra special stocking fillers pretty enough to put a smile on anybody’s face then let me point you in the direction of Whittard
