    The Haddock starter and the pork main from the Prix fixe menu were delicious and the service was five star.

    Absolutely fantastic experience, staff and food. Had the vegan tasting menu and I never thought celery could be a highlight but it really was extraordinary, all of the food was. A special mention to the final course of chocolate brownie was wonderful!

    1. Mal in Liverpool, 1. Mal in The Art School. Wir hatten das Fixe Prix Menü und es war exzellent. Vorspeise - Pilz Soufflé und Haddock - voller Überraschungen, Hauptspeise Strudel und Entenflügel - großartig. Das Fleisch fiel fast vom Knochen... die Nachspeisen haben ein wirklich gutes Essen noch getoppt! Preis-Leistung sehr gut, Service detto. En Lokal zum Merken und Wiederkommen. Ein rundum gelungener Abend!

    The style and decor was so lovely! The service is impeccable and everyone was very organised and structured without it feeling robotic. The staff remembered all of the notes I attached to my booking and accommodated everything. It really was very lovely. The food was ok. I think that many flavours and ingredients were repeated across dishes which I understand is probably based on seasonality, but to me it showed a slight lack of inventiveness really. The option for a vegan tasting menu is wonderful. I haven’t seen that anywhere else! So thank you. I think the best dishes were probably both mains prior to the dessert. The dishes really could be taken up a level. I was expecting more based on the price, simply just in comparison to other tasting menus I’ve experienced in the past and other restaurants I know that offer tasting menus (for example others would mirror this price, in a few Michelin star establishments, which is a shock based on location). My beef carpaccio also had a lot of citrus, far too much for the size so sadly all I could taste was that. The drinks are fantastic. Your wine list is very varied and the mocktails were surprisingly impressive. I love the detailed catering to non-alcohol drinkers. The service really is amazing though and that was truly lovely from start to finish. I would only recommend someone to try the restaurant for the experience, simply for the small menu or a specialised event e.g Mothers Day.
