An amazing bar and restaurant off Duke Street in Liverpool city centre, it's a former Victorian jail which makes for a very unusual setting to eat.
Despite its former use, the venue is incredibly stylish and cosy and you can still eat in the cells as well as in an elegant dining area upstairs where's there's also a champagne lounge. Food is fab and service is very good. Also very reasonably priced especially with the set meal on a weekday.
Campbell Square off Duke Street, Liverpool 0151 709 4195. Nearest train station is Liverpool Central. The restaurant can be walked to from the city centre along Hanover Street walking towards the Albert Dock. Perfect if you're going for a gig at the Arena!
The most amazing Indian food I have ever tasted in modern chic surroundings, it's just a couple of minutes' walk from Bold Street. Definitely try the Paneer Makhani - diced cottage cheese simmered in creamy tomato sauce with just a touch of honey.
Also fab is the Patrani Sea Bass which is steamed with coconut, sesame, coriander and mint and enveloped in banana leaf. The lunch menu is very tasty with a choice of nine dishes all very reasonably priced. Finish it off with a fruit sorbet which is divine! I love it so much here I actually ate both my lunch and dinner there last week!
