What is it? Food, marvellous food in a historic Victorian building.
Why go? The Art School Restaurant is housed in what used to be a ‘home for destitute children’ in Victorian times. But these days you’re more likely to be chomping on a cheeseboard than writing on a chalkboard. The Art School Restaurant is all about exquisite, beautifully-prepared British cooking. We liked the twice-baked cheese soufflé with baby leaf spinach, Ormskirk leek and Wirral watercress, and the sumptuous roast breast of Scottish grouse with thyme-scented honey.
