Me and me partner visisted this afternoon in the hope of enjoying a veggie roast. We was served with two bland plates with a terrible looking white sauce on top of a nut roast and no Gravy. They said they can remove the white sauce but did not offer an alternative, as they did not have veggie gravy. We sent... More

Hi Jrowan09 Many thanks for your review. We welcome reviews good and bad (so we can improve). The Head Chef's mum is vegan and all our food is road tested before being put on the menu. You will see from our reviews that our vegetarian options are celebrated (again probably because his mum is vegan). Anyway we are listening and... More

Two of us thought the food was good one of us thought the dishes were bland needed salt and the pasta not at all tasty. The exception to this was the black pudding starter which was tasty. Pictures of what we had are posted with this review, non of us had room for desserts . Atmosphere good and service was... More

Hi Graham198 Thanks for your review! I just want to address your point and others about why some people feel our food may appear bland. So my response here is for the benefit of TA users as much as to respond to the person in your group. We're clearly polarising opinion on TA. A sprinkling of one star reviews claiming... More

Was looking forward to this meal as Sunday lunch had been recommended. Place itself really nice but the meal wasn't good at all. I had caeser salad starter, the chicken was dry, limp lettuce and hardly any dressing. Roast beef dinner was awful, tough beef tasteless veg and Yorkshire but the worst thing was the gravy which was a greyish... More

Came with family for Sunday lunch and have to say we couldn't fault the food or staff. Great options on the menu, especially for vegetarians. The desserts were also beautiful (we really recommend the sticky toffee pudding). We will definitely be returning.

Hi Robyn W Thanks for your review praising our food, especially the vegetarian options. As I've written elsewhere, the Head Chef's mum is a vegan so we know what we're doing on that score. Or there'd be hell to pay! Look forward to seeing you again - and am so pleased you "get" The Monro and what we stand for.... More

Such a shame, we used to like this place. The Monro is good for veggi options, always has been, but the latest menu was pretty dire, in fact my husband who hadn't eaten all day, left his bland as hell bowl of pasta almost uneaten - he then got cheese and crackers because he was still hungry, the cheese was...

Hi Harriet F Thanks for your review. We'll look at increasing the salt and sugar content of our dishes to match the modern palate. Here's my take on comparing our food with a ready meal: Vitamins and minerals in ready meals are synthetic because of the processes they go for before they end up in the packet on the supermarket...

We have eaten here twice now and I hesitated to review the first time because I feel a place deserves an off day and a second chance therefore. Well I fall by my own rules sometimes. This 'gastropub' promises so much but delivers Nothing! Beautiful surroundings in a lovely, lively old Liverpool Merchant Pub. Good looking but limited menu, quite... More

Visited on the recommendation of a shop assistant in John Lewis and were not disappointed! Staff were welcoming. Pleasant atmosphere. Great choice of beers and ales. Menu was impressive. The food was freshly prepared and presentation was excellent. The duck dish was slightly small but made up for in taste. Overall very happy with our visit and would definitely recommend

As lonely planet suggested we decided to have dinner on The Monro. The waitress were lovely and professional, we didn't have to wait for a table. The dinner was amazing, the mix of flavours made a very nice balance. Highly recommended for food lovers.
