Last month I spent a few days in Liverpool exploring the city, seeing the sights and of course partaking in lots of eating and drinking; let me introduce you to The Clubhouse, my favourite place we ate that weekend.

Located on the rooftop of Liverpool One at Chavasse Park, it's in the perfect central location wether you're popping in with family after a wander around the shops or if you're meeting your girlfriends for a cocktail or three with a view!

The Clubhouse is a Hampton's style pub with it's own all year round outdoor kitchen with BBQ and rotisserie in the beautiful gardens which surround the building, so if alfresco dining is your kind of thing, you will love it here, especially if the sun is shining. I can really see this being the place to be in Liverpool throughout the Summer... I just wish that I lived closer!
If you're familiar with places such as The Botanist or The Alchemist, the interior style and menu will look somewhat familiar to you as this is owned by the same people; The New World Trading Company. 
The restaurant has two floors and is all decorated around an American beach house theme... It actually feels as though you are in someone's house! There's a huge staircase leading upstairs with a very grand chandelier made of champagne flutes hanging down, there's also book cases, arm chairs and beautiful photographs allover the walls - it's so busy, you feel like you have to keep looking around as not to miss out on anything.

We were greeted at the door by a really friendly waitress and seated upstairs (even though it was sunny, it was a little too windy to eat outside unfortunately) in the part of the restaurant with a nautical, beach hut theme, with pastel beach style murals on the walls, life-bouys, replica sailing boats, blue and white striped seating and the patio style doors leading out to the terrace balcony - I could have really made myself at home!
The drinks menu is amazing... featuring a myriad of world beers, ales and siders plus classic cocktails, wines and champagne, it can take a while to decide what you're drinking! I ordered a virgin mojito (my fave) which was specially made for me as there aren't any mocktails on the menu and Robbie got a can of Beerlao.

The food menu is really diverse, it's simple food done well. There are snacks galore, classic club sarnies, deli boards and salads plus rotisserie chicken, BBQ steaks and burgers, kebabs, pies and so much more, plus a delicious sounding list of desserts (I will try the chocolate chip cookie dough next time I visit!)
Myself and Robbie ordered the chicken hanging kebabs with sweet chilli and ginger with chips which were beyond delicious and Elodie chose chicken, mash and beans from the menu which was served in a cute little crate with the chicken in a bucket and the beans in a shell - she loved this and ate it all up!
Elodie was the only one who could manage to squeeze in a dessert and chose her usual; chocolate ice cream which came in a bucket with ginger biscuit crumb sand with white chocolate covered raisin pebbles - The finishing touches and extra care taken with all of this really made all the difference, she thought it was a huge treat.

I can't shout about The Clubhouse enough, the service was second to none, prices are very affordable,  they accommodated Elodie wonderfully (which is always a big bonus when you're dining with children) and the food was excellent quality. If I'm back in Liverpool anytime soon, you will most definitely find me here sitting in a deck chair sipping a cocktail!
