Visited here on a Saturday evening with a group of friends for a pre Christmas get together. We had opted for the Festive menu ,3 courses for just under £30. Menu choice was good (we had been asked to pre order our main courses) and food was of a very good quality and excellently presented . There is a good wine list which was reasonably priced , choice of very drinkable "house wines " available for £14 a bottle. The owner was very welcoming and service was excellent ,attentive and efficient whilst at the same time being very friendly . Would certainly recommend .

We visited Spire last week for the early set menu. This was our first visit and I was really excited as I've heard lots of good things! We were not disappointed. I had the squid to start, then the braised lamb. Both were cooked perfectly. My boyfriend and his parents loved their meals too. The wine was really reasonably priced. The only complaint (well comment not complaint) I would have is about the lighting. It was so bright it was a bit like a canteen, slightly clinical. If the lights were dimmed and a few candles put out I think this could change the atmosphere completely.

I came here over London carriage works due to the story of the owner once being the head chef and also growing up in wavertree.
We was greeted by a young Irish waitress who was very nice and helpful/polite, after sitting and turning the waitress away two times as we where discussing the menu and couldn't decide on what to order. Eventually the owner came over and was quite aggressive in his manner, basically insinuating to hurry up. He didn't seem too interested in explaining the menu or answering any questions. He only seemed interested in speaking to a few regulars in the restaurant and as it is so small you can't hear yourself think when he is stood near you having a loud conversation which lasted for around an hour or so!
That aside the food was delicious, well presented and extremely fresh! The prices are extremely reasonable for the quality of the food, with an excellent choice in wine! I would go back to the restaurant purely down to the quality of food.

We took advantage of the all night set menu and enjoyed a great meal at great value. I would recommend this resyuarant as one of the best in Liverpool and great value for money even on the a la carte and suggest you book in advance.

The only downside to the place is it lacks atmosphere and has always failed to deliver on this, but has never failed on food good qualty and well cooked by a chef not a cook and the difference is palpable. TRY IT!

Excellent food at sensible prices. Downstairs and upstairs dining. Earlybird menu available until 7.30 weeknights, 2 or 3 courses. Friendly staff and good atmosphere. Should appeal to all ages groups. Michelin star style food without the snobbery or high price. Taxi rank directly opposite outside and some nice unique bars in area to try. Highly recommend, bookings necessary particularly at week-end.
