Date Day in Liverpool

My boyfriend and I had a belated Valentine's celebration last weekend in Liverpool. Living near Chester, Liverpool is so easy for us to get to, but if you are from outside the North West area, I highly recommend booking one of the many gorgeous hotels in Liverpool.


We both love fine food, so we booked a table for lunch at the infamous Wreckfish. They offer high quality food in their stylish city centre location. I recommend visiting at lunchtime as they have two offers available, 2 courses for £19 or 3 courses for £22, and they feature some of the same dishes on their evening menu, so the lunchtime offering is a more affordable way to try the dishes.

To start, I had the confit crapaudine beetroot, candy beetroot, smoked beetroot purée and sticky walnuts. In layman's terms, it was beetroot three ways with candied walnuts. The dish had a great balance of textures and tastes. My boyfriend had the charred mackerel, nut ragù, roast cauliflower and confit turnip, which he enjoyed.

Our main dishes arrived shortly after and they looked amazing! I opted for the Jerusalem artichoke risotto, poached hen’s egg and artichoke crisps. I'd never tried artichoke before but I adore risotto, I wasn't disappointed! Some risottos can be bland, but Wreckfish's offering was very flavourful and wholesome.

My boyfriend had the braised feather blade of beef, cauliflower purée, parmesan and truffle chips (£3 supplement on lunch offer). I have eaten this at Wreckfish before and confirm that the dish is delicious.

Although we were both full, we couldn't resist a dessert! We choose the honeycomb semifreddo, dark chocolate sauce and fresh honeycomb, it was the perfect ending to our lunch.

We continued to explore Liverpool to work off some of our lunch, we wandered around the shops and then headed to Albert Dock and visited the Tate art museum. It has free exhibitions, so well worth a look if you are in the area.

We also stopped at the Smugglers Cove bar on the dock to rest our tired legs. It offered a vast range of ales and spirits and an exciting cocktail menu. I opted for a Smugglers Martini, which was their version of the classic Pornstar Martini.
