A smart favourite that's part of the fabric of Hope Street.

Hope Street is one of Liverpool's smartest addresses and 60 Hope Street is the home of one of its best-established restaurants. Discreet and well-run, it's a favourite spot for business lunches during the week, while in the evening it's popular for a treat; along with The London Carriage Works, it's one of the city's classic 'posh' restaurants. The more relaxed bistro downstairs serves a set menu daily.

Food and drink

I have to admit to feeling a little bit frustrated with 60; it has a very good reputation for refined modern British cooking and with a tiny bit more effort, the food could really live up to this. Nevertheless, there are some great ideas here and some of them are executed well.  

Recommended dishes

The deep-fried jam sandwich with Carnation milk ice cream is a house special, a take on the conny-onny butty of chef and co-proprietor Gary Manning's childhood.

Ambience

Very business-friendly at lunchtime and worth dressing up for in the evening.

Service

Considerate - they brought me a stack of magazines when I last ate there alone - but not always strong on knowledge of the food itself. If I had any allergies, I'd ask to see the chef to discuss them properly.

Location

Lovely Hope Street: always a winner.

Price advice

Seasonal menus offer good value, especially as there's often a half-bottle of wine thrown in. A main course is around £20 in the evening.

Branches

The same group also owns Host and The Quarter, both just over the road.
