The place I'm about to share is very important for me, since I worked in this restaurant myself while living in Southport. Southport is an English holiday resort near Liverpool, not well known others but very well loved by the British. Michaels Restaurant is in the suburb of Birkdale, about 5 minutes from the center of Southport, and is a very welcoming place and which is full of memories of my stay there. The chef, Michael, is German but has livedfor many years in England, where he started a family and this restaurant, into which they put all their dreams. It is very modest, but everyone who has worked for him know he's a great chef, who has cooked for the former Tony Blair. The cuisine is creative, and is made with love and dedication, he cares about every detail, I assure you that the British public is very demanding, if there are any complaints, he quickly recooks the dish without complaint. It is expensive, without dobt , but the food is great and there is a lot behind this dedication. If you are near Southport, go and see Michael, he is a genius.
The Hoghton Arms seems to blend in with the local stores as if it prefers not to be discovered. The decor is very Irish, with wooden tables, curtains with floral prints and a very nice wooden bar that is immune to the pint glasses continually being knocked against it. It mainly specializes in beers, but also offers a good selection of steaks and burgers.
The Warehouse Kitchen & Bar is very modern, being recently renovated and redecorated, it is always seeking renewal, both aesthetically and on a culinary level. It specializes in wine and spirits, but the kitchen is at the height of its skills as a bar. Committment to griddled meals without losing any elegance or cretivity, giving to your dishes a very appetizing presentation. Liverpool FC players are regular dinersin this restaurant, using the place to get away from the controversy and enjoy a nice quiet moment. A great restaurant.
The Dolphin restaurant is nothing special. I really don't know if it can even be qualified as a restaurant, but it claims to make the best fish & chips in the country, and it holds many awards, including the 10 best seafood restaurants in the north of England. If you like fish & chips and want to see if the legend is true, then try The Dolphin.
In the middle the bustle of Chapel Street is a cafe chain well known in the UK, Caffè Nero Its coffees, with their frothy texture and powerful flavor delight those who try them, also on offer a large selection of : cakes , cookies, desserts ... A great place to stop and rest.
I don't known what's so special about Italian cuisine, but Southport is crazy about it, so it's not surprising that there's an Italian joint like this. Casa Italia is decorated in true Italian style with checkered tablecloths and lights everywhere, creating a warm atmosphere that invites calm and serenity. The restaurant is very good, the food is delicious and the prices are not exorbitant. A very appropriate recommendation to the country (ironically, of course ...). Honestly, just a good place.
The centrally located Willow Grove combines a wide selection of beers with a daily menu that, although not very diverse and exquisite, is a proper meal. It's quite large and the quality provided makes it the ideal place to stop and regain strength. If you don't have much time, choose The Willow Grove.
