survey result


* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“Superb food… comfortable surroundings, friendly but not obsequious staff, a very decent wine list, reasonable prices…” – this boutique hotel dining room (named after the original 1860 business that occupied the premises) was part of the early wave of culinary reinvention to hit ‘The Pool’ and opened in 2003. It’s often overlooked nowadays, but reports this year suggest unfairly so.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

Have you eaten at The London Carriage Works, Hope Street Hotel?

Owner's description

The London Carriage Works is an award-winning restaurant serving modern British dishes using local, fresh and seasonal produce.
Opening in 2003 TLCW quickly established itself as one of Liverpool’s leading restaurants, enjoying rave reviews and critical acclaim. It has 2 AA Rosettes and holds an AA Notable Wine award for its extensive and eclectic wine list.

The TLCW bar is a convivial space to kick back and catch up. From Monday to Sunday we serve a full range of dishes - including plates to share and we encourage the full use of the drinks menu until midnight! (10pm on Sundays)

Built in the 1860's in the architectural fashion of the day - the elegant Venetian palazzo - The London Carriage Works was once the warehouse of a coach and carriage builders. During renovation the original name was discovered carved in the stone lintel above the front door and kept out of respect for the building’s history.
