My wife and I had lunch at The Monro and then returned the same evening for dinner. On both occassions the food and service were excellent and the value was OUTSTANDING!! A two course lunch cost £12 each and their Monday night special was £16 each for two courses and a bottle of wine. However, don't get the wrong idea - the prices are very reasonable but the food was equivalent to that you'd get at a good restaurant costing four times the price!

After a long day shopping, me and my husband popped into The Monro for an early evening dinner without a reservation and had a very reasonable 2 course menu for £14. All food was well presented, well cooked and very tasty (especially the oxtail lasagne). The restaurant was busy but we weren't made to feel rushed at all and our waitress Ruth was excellent and very personable. Would definitely recommend a friend and will return.

Visited with a friend and had the 'early doors' option. What a disappointment it was. The goats cheese and baby beets starter was so small, if you scooped it all up at once it would have amounted to barely a forkful. The main course of 'home made' fish pie was dry, unappetisingly presented and so ferociously hot that we had to wait to eat it. I had informed our (lovely) waitress that I was coeliac, but despite this, my main arrived with a side of bread and butter and no vegetables. We pointed out our dissatisfaction to the staff and were offered a free dessert, which although listed as panacotta, had the solid consistency of cheesecake that had been in the fridge for far too long. We did not eat this. On the plus side, the staff and the ambience are very good and the wine list fine. But at £14 for 2 courses of that quality, this place needs to up its standard of cooking sharpish.

Recommended by a friend. Again expectations were high. Only small selection on menu, waitress friendly, unfortunately food disappointing. The worst aspect of this experience the was the amount of time we waited. Between starter and main we waited over 40 minutes for a basic meal. (Fish and chips, and a steak). Unfortunately we will not be back again, there are far better English style restaurants in Liverpool City centre.

What can I say. Great little pub that serves excellent food at excellent prices. Such a relaxed atmosphere with a good selection of draught beers coupled with an ever changing menu.
A must try
