Can not praise this restaurant enough. Food, service and value for money all superb. A small but varied menu to suit all tastes. I opted for the seafood linguine and chef asked for my preference, tomato or cream sauce. I chose the cream which was spot on with just enough seafood and seasoning. My partners steak was just a tad underdone but it was soon sorted by staff and was returned from the kitchen accompanied by a bowl of fresh chips which where delicious.
My desert of home made rice pudding with clotted cream and jam finished the meal off perfectly, just a pity I could not finish it as by this time I was ready to burst!
Stuart the owner was really hospitable and entertaining and made us feel very welcome as did the rest off the staff in this family run business, nothing was to much trouble. Definitely worth a return visit.

Me and my husband regulary dine here, we now class this as our local. You do not need to go into town to have a lovely meal. We come back all the time not only for the great food, the portions but the owners and staff are lovely, they cannot do enough for you and nothing is too much trouble. We have sampled the mid weeks early specials, the main menu and the Sunday lunch and they are all wonderfull. My 13 year old son who loves his food and has dined at many restaurants says this is his favourite and always leaves a clean plate and even has room for his sticky toffee pudding. It is always fabulous homemade food and puddings which for me is heaven as i have a sweet tooth. I would highly recommend the Grill Room to anyone

My fiance and I attend the grill room most sundays and never fail to impress. The staff are friendly and food is excellent. If you are like myself and like quality food this is the place to try, you will not be disappointed.

Dined here Sunday and had the Roast Beef with all the trimmings, very disappointed!

The veg, potatoes and yorkshire pud were nice and then what to make of the one slice of thin beef, well not a lot! Having looked on the website there is a picture of a succulent roast packed full of beef and compared to what we were served was a travesty!

I asked the waitress if the slice of beef was the norm. and she said that because most people have the three course roast we would not like to overfill them and if I wanted more beef I should have asked for some!

May I suggest 2 or 3 slices of beef would be more sufficient and then the meat / veg ratio would be more fitting to a proper Sunday Roast.

On a slightly more positive note, the bread roll was super nice!!!!

Thank you for another disappointing meal out in Liverpool!

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Unfortunately neither myself or my wife were in that day as we were at a local food festival.

We usually give one large thick piece of meat or a couple of pieces. As you can see from the rest of the reviews our sunday lunches are extremely popular. It is difficult to get the quantity of food right for everyone and the majority of the time we do and if customers are not we are always happy to give extra meat, potatoes, gravy etc.

I am glad you enjoyed the vegetables and the complimentary bread but what a shame you still considered to rate us as terrible two out of five stars.
