Featured Aughton Restaurants
1. Moor Hall British, Modern restaurant in Aughton Prescot Rd - L39
“A beautiful building in a beautiful setting with a beautiful kitchen garden, and beautiful food… just fabulous!”. Mark Birchall’s “outstanding” three-year-old occupies a “mediaeval manor house adapted for the 21st Century” to the north of Liverpool and is “excellent in every way, from start to finish”. After the approach down a long driveway, “an ancient stone arch holds a door of ecclesiastical proportions, leading onto to a panelled reception. From here you are led into the lounge (proper fire places, more intricate carvings and Latin inscriptions) to be served from the charcuterie bar as you wait (black pudding parcel; smoked eel basket with edible flowers; cod’s roe mousse with caviar and the most beautiful crackers ever…)”. Once in the dining room proper (a very modern space), “everything coming out of the kitchen is exquisite”: thoroughly “deserving of its two stars” and oft-compared with L’Enclume (even if the food’s “not quite as cheffy and messed about with”). “What Mark Birchall can do with carrots and turnips is just remarkable” and “symptomatic of the ethos: fresh, simple ingredients taken to a higher level by the chef’s craft”. “Integral to the experience” is a “front of house team fully on the top of its game; and a team of sommeliers passionate about their work, all dedicated to creating the ultimate dining experience”. It doesn’t all take itself too seriously either: the vibe is “fun and convivial”. Top Tip – don’t miss a jaunt to the cheese room, and take a stroll around the gardens if you have the time!
2. The Barn at Moor Hall British, Modern restaurant in Aughton Prescot Rd - L39
The “wonderfully converted barn” has an “excellent design” – complete with heavy beams and bare brick walls – and is the casual dining, “sister outlet to the two-Michelin star main operation Moor Hall”. It’s not quite as exceptional as the main dining room, but its “inventive” take on posh-brasserie dishes (roasted turbot, 40-day aged sirloin, soft herb gnocchi…) is very highly rated in all reports, and you can still “expect quite a glitzy crowd at the weekend, with live piano on Friday and Saturday nights”.
3. So-lo British, Modern restaurant in Aughton Town Green Lane - L39
Tim Allen is a chef with a fine CV and the name (if strangely spelt) hints at the intention of his new 40-seater on the site of The Seafood Pub Company’s Wine Bar (RIP). It’s another reason to visit this increasingly foodie corner of Lancashire, which has Moor Hall just down the road.
