The Monro is famous for weird food, such as ostrich and Welsh buffalo, but they now have a Pudding Club which is held every Monday.
The head chef and his team create the most amazing puddings I've ever seen and you get a light main course plus three desserts for just a tenner.
You've got to try it as it’s such a laugh - the restaurant atmosphere is superb as you can feel the anticipation as each pud is brought to your table.
It's so cool and I'm glad I joined it.

Incredibly authentic Middle Eastern restaurant on the studenty Smithdown Road. Grills and kebabs are great but it’s best to create your own meze with a selection of starters and salads (£2-3 each). Bring your own booze and make sure you enjoy a cardamom infused Turkish coffee and a shisha to finish.

The Monro does amazing food that is in my opinion better than some of the top restaurants in the city. Featuring rabbit, wild boar and Welsh buffalo they create really special dishes at great prices.
Also don't be fooled by their bar snacks blackboard on the way in. This is more memorable food that's ingenious and cheap.
