Liverpool's most famous dish

Try one of our local specialities in the restaurant - our scouse is highly recommended and pan haggerty, a vegetarian dish, is delicious.

If you'd prefer a lighter snack, pop into the Stable Tea Room.

Try making our local speciality

Wet Nelly is an old Liverpool favourite. It was originally made from compressed broken biscuits, pastry remnants etc. and was a tasty way to use up leftovers.

Why is it called Wet Nelly? Well, it's not named after anyone, it's just a moist version of Nelson Cake, a Lancashire fruit cake. It's absolutely delicious and is one of our top sellers in the restaurant.
