Where in your opinion does the best Sunday roast in Liverpool?

Spire is good and enjoyed the one at bouchon de luxe especially as they do the French onion soup as a starter 😋

Gutted to see Lerpwl has closed with immediate effect. Landlord dispute over pandemic rent.

It looked like it was really building itself, trying new things and attempting to become a fine dining place that Liverpool doesn't have much of.

Sad times - think we are gonna see more close in the coming months - that higher end market seems to be a struggle in Liverpool

Lerpwl is closing effective immediately over a £30k dispute with the landlords.

Yeah, never like to hear of anywhere closing, especially the good places.

Although, on my only visit, it was defo a bit overpriced for what was on offer. You could eat at least as well at Spire, for half the cost.

Went to Wreckfish last night.


Didnít think the food was value for money at all (3 courses for £47), just the whole vibe wasnít right either. From the moment we got there I felt like we were being pushed out.

We had our waiter come over twice within 5 minutes asking if we are ready to order, got a bottle of wine, within 15 minutes they were back asking if we wanted more wine or drinks. Starters came and then Mains were out minutes after finishing them. Just felt so rushed and didnít get a chance to just sit and chat with a wine.

Ended up out in just over an hour, and wasnít at all what we wanted from the evening, especially when we had committed to that price. My missus felt sick cos she felt so rushed and on edge.

The food was okay to good, but the main meals werenít anything special, and we ended up paying an extra £5 for what was basically a few lettuce leaves, as we felt we needed extra.

Itís cheaper and so much better in Barnacle, which is near by.

I went today for the first time - my brother recommended it as we were taking our mum out for lunch.

I thought it was great. It was 3 courses for 32 quid which is reasonable.

Had the Sunday menu so went for Morcilla sausage to start, roast beef and trimmings for the main and a mint chocolate brownie and ice cream for dessert. Thought it was all excellent, service was good.

I'd return definitely.

Would have been happy enough with it for £30 or whatever the offer menu is. Not for £50 for three courses though.

Iíve been to Pinion which is Gary Usherís place in Prescot, and that was great for a Sunday Lunch.

Return visits to Vincenzo and Pinion of late.

Both still very good.

Pinion was outstanding, actually. Top notch food to enjoy prior to our first time at Shakespeare North, which was also boss.

Best burger in Liverpool?

Any thoughts?

Bit late to this, but as others have said, the answer is Free State Kitchen. The Shipping Forecast would be my other go to.

Went the Baltic markets for the first time last night. Great experience and looking forward to going again. Great food and a decent pint of the black stuff. Not cheap but not expensive, I certainly expected higher prices given the quirkiness or uniqueness of it tbf.

Really hope Christiakis survives, we wanted to go there last night but they were fully booked so thatís why we ended up going the Baltic as I knew they had a stand there. It didnít disappoint, apart from them disappearing off the site due to being unable to take anymore orders at one point!

Went to Lemongrass last night, just at the bottom of me road so dead easy, food was spot on as always, anyone know if this has been taken over or under new management?  the staff seemed to have changed from Thai to Indian and we noticed a few other changes.  the pad thai is decent, really big portion too.
Sir, the cash monies?

We were in Etsu last Thursday. It was full and they were turning people away that didn't have bookings. Great to see as I worried about it over lockdown.

It really is superb for Japanese food.

Went to Sans Cafe twice over the weekend, both times it was phenomenal. The best Chinese food I've had, cheap, and huge portions. The owner is an absolute legend, came and chatted to us both times and is really committed to the quality of what they serve.

I worked on the same street as Sans for almost 25 years and never once set foot in the place.

I wouldn't say on here the precise details of what put me off, but lets just say one of my colleagues witnessed something which meant that none of the fifty odd people who worked with me ever went in there either. There were loads of other workers on Lightbody Street that avoided the place too.

It had a poor reputation, but that didn't seem to put the bizzies off, dozens of whom went in there to eat every day.

San is a nice personable fella but I personally would never eat there.

Just my personal preference, like.

It was great, yeah. We had a chat platter to start and I can't remember specifically what the mains were called but one was a kofta and it was really nice. I'm not a vegetarian but it's nice to have somewhere to recommend to my vegetarian friends.

Was home over the Arsenal weekend...Base camp the Bridewell...well run pub that. Salt house Tapas was decent for lunch, Restaurant bar and grill for dinner and was a good vibe, food was ok. Friday was a great day....walk about....dale street..excelsior, angus, legs of man..Puffin Rooms ( that place was different ) the croc..never changes.. back up to the slaughter house, corn exchange and finished off the night at Jenny's...Love that little place. Saturday, watched the Everton Man U game at the Bridwell then hit up Fitzgeralds, concert square..mobbed ..did not stay long, Bold street...all over..Town was mad last Saturday...The empire for Karaoke...then up castle street. Went to eat at Mowgli after the game Sunday...great meal and they accommodated 8 of us late on.

Slightly weird request:

I've got memories of going to a greasy spoon cafe by Anfield in the early 2000s with my dad.

The only distinctive thing I can remember is the plastic chairs, like these but in red:

Does anyone know which cafe this could have been? Could it have been Anfield Cafe or Georgie Porgy? Or is it somewhere lost to time!

My dad's not around anymore but I would like to recreate our pre-match routine.

The jumbo will always be known to me as Maryís toy fair , thatís what it was when I grew up in Anfield in the late 60s / early 70s until it shut around 1980 . The money from minding the cars was always spent on airfix models in there or going in the boys pen

Can anyone recommend a cafť/pub/restaurant close to the Adelphi? Looking for somewhere that does a decent brekkie for 15 or so lads when in town on cricket tour.

Last year we went to the Slaughter House but staying the other end of town this year.

What's your pleasure?
