    This is one of my favourite restaurants in Britain. The food is all locally sourced and cooked to perfection. Chef Askew regularly comes to greet customers and if visiting on a Sunday, Paul calves the meat at your table. There is a wide wine selection ranging in price. The sommelier, Brandon, is full of knowledge and always a pleasure to speak with. Having said that every staff member at this restaurant is superb! If you’re in the Liverpool area, The Art School is a must visit!

    The meal was amazing and the staff were as attentive as ever. The overall experience was really special. Best restaurant feature for us was the sommelier who was knowledgeable, personable and really attentive.

    We paid a long overdue visit for lunch on Saturday &; had the 3 course Prix Fixe menu excellent value & the found was sublime. Every course delightful but my husband was in raptures about the pheasant. We will be back as soon as lockdown allows us to. The Art School is a Liverpool gem

    First visit to the Art School and was not disappointed. Liked the spacious dining room. Staff meticulous in maintaining the coronavirus restrictions. Food was excellent - really enjoyed the chef's special and impressed that he came out of the kitchen and served it to everyone who ordered it. Now need to try the a la carte or tasting menu so have already booked for the end of November.
