I was suspicious about his place when we walked in on a Saturday night and it was two thirds empty at 8.30.
We’d booked and were hoping for good things because the fit out of this gastropub is really cool and having just moved to Kings Cross we wanted to check this out and handy decent local.
The reason it was so empty was because the staff are so shocking. I’ve never had worse service. Shame cos the food was actually really good. We literally had plates thrown on to the table. The waitress kicked me 3 times and didn’t apologise as she walked past. We brought her surly attitude up at the end of the meal and she had a rehearsed line about how she would learn from it. The response was too smooth that it was obvious she’d used it before.
Someone has spent a lot of money on this place but it obviously an absentee owner. A sure fire way to lose a load of money. Avoid it at all cost.

Now moved to the old George Henry Lee site.
I don't get TK Maxx. It's like Ocxfam only expensive! It smells of old clothes (a la Oxfam!).
Also, most of it is really old stock that are cast offs from a retailer who couldn't sell them in their sale! I.e No-one wanted them first time round.
They buy unsaleable stuff from other retailers which is why I don't understand why it's not cheaper! Have you seen the homewares? Bit of old broken photo frames and the odd chipped candleholder - rubbish - literally!

Cheap does not mean good. What happened to quality, choice, service? You ain't gonna get any of these here.
It's rank but sadly because of all their dodgy financial deals with other sports retailers such as JJB they've cornered the sports shop market. They've bought up loads of 2nd rate brands like Slazenger and Donnay which is why they're stores are full of this gear.

I really hate this branch of Tesco - especially since they expanded it to sell everything on the planet. It's really awkwardly laid out as well and personally i go to a supermarket to buy food not rancid clothes made in sweatshops in the Far East.
The staff are not great either. Grumpy or too busy talking to each other to help.
Give me a Sainsburys or a Waitrose any day of the week! Even better shop with Ocado online and get Waitrose food at Tesco prices!

Good for delivery not sure it rates being Liverpool's best restaurant. It is only pizza after all!
Good choice of toppings though and thankfully a good thin crust rather than some doughy weird thick thing that takes a whole night to digest...
25, Bold Street, Liverpool, Merseyside L1 4DN
Only opened yesterday, the cool sibling of the Old Hall Street branch come to Liverpool’s hippest retail street. Funky wallpaper, interior and signage and a wicked choice of teas. Over 30 types to choose from. Selection of sandwiches, cakes and of course they sell coffee so should give the chain coffee stores something to think about. get in there and support your independent stores!
12 Stanley Street, Liverpool, Merseyside L1 6AF
This place is really great. Deli on the lower ground floor with a lovely cafe upsatirs. The food upstairs is really varied with lots of veggie options (but not too many). The important thing is that everything is really tasty almost zingy flavours. Also, deli has proper stuff like Spanish hams etc rather just posh chocs and crisps like most delis. Reasonably priced and cool location for the city centre if you’re shopping in town.
22 Paradise Street, Liverpool, Merseyside L1 8JF
Funky, offbeat, weird but cool.
This American clothing retailer hails from LA and is opening in locations around the UK. Not quite sure why it’s in Liverpool One though. Would suit Bold Street much better.
Great cotton basics such as undies in every colour you can imagine, t-shirts, sweats etc. Loads of strange things that are probably more for the press than actually get sold but fun nonetheless.
35 Lord Street, Liverpool, Merseyside L2 9SQ
This is the oldest jewellers in Liverpool and they are really at the premium end of the market as witnessed by the liveried doormen (security). Catering to Liverpool’s old money (and of course new money of which Liverpool has plenty!) Boodles is the benchmark in high-end jewellery retailing. With a very smart new store on London’s Old Bond Street they could become an international brand. Not being rich enough to shop here I have looked through the window in envy (I have also been to events here and the staff are super friendly). Most of their products are actually designed in Liverpool which is both unusual but also really cool. Get saving!

At last Pret comes to Liverpool (well along with the one in Liverpool One). Undoubtedly the king of sandwich shops this occupies a prime corner location on the corner of Lord Street and Castle Street. Big space with loads of seats and a big outdoor seating area (facing the sun!). Favorites include the falafel and spinach sandwich which is awesome and the all day breakfast if I’m feeling hungover. They do great fresh soups and also a nice selection of salads. Cakes are also really good esp Lemon Drizzle and the Carrot Cake. Finally, the Choc Bar is super good if you need something really sweet to finish. Not cheap at all but worth it.
