Food

Having lived on a farm all my life I have always been in an environment where good quality food has been important. My mother, an excellent cook, always produced good wholesome meals and superb cakes and we have made sure we have acquired many of her recipes.

I spent many years in my former career supporting and promoting local and regional food and drink and Mere Brook House has given me the opportunity to carry on this work in a very practical way. As a result you will find that we offer locally produced food wherever possible.

To this end we have our own vegetable and fruit garden and Donald, having turned into a beekeeper a few years ago, also provides us with our very own Mere Brook Honey. He now has 40 hives and his own website! Take a look - www.merebrookbees.co.uk. In addition, we take apples to be pressed so have our own Mere Brook apple juice and this year some of the apples are being made into cider. Meanwhile, James, our chef, is very enterprising at using surplus vegetables and turning them into homemade chutneys. Delicious with our cheese board!!


Breakfasts

Our breakfasts include:
A selection of cereals, porridge, fruit juice, yoghurts and fresh fruit. Our cooked breakfast includes dry cured Cheshire bacon, pork sausage, finest quality black pudding, mushrooms and tomatoes with either fried, scrambled or poached eggs, along with tea or fresh coffee, toast, Mere Brook honey, marmalade and jam.

Business Lunches

We offer a two course lunch to our business and conference meeting delegates. Examples include; home baked ham, chicken pilaff, cheese and onion quiche, BBQ brisket, Cumberland sausage casserole or chicken casserole and all are served with potatoes and seasonal vegetables or homemade coleslaw, Waldorf salad and green salad. This is followed by one of our 14 homemade sweets such as apple crumble, rhubarb brulee or raspberry pavlova, with an option of our local and regional cheese board.

Special celebrations

We host a variety of events – wedding breakfasts, wedding parties, birthday parties and Christmas do's! We offer everything from a formal dinner with canapés, main course, sweets, local and regional cheese board and tea and coffee, to a celebration buffet or BBQ.

As mentioned previously, we take a pride in sourcing many of our ingredients locally – Our suppliers include Whieldon's butchers in Higher Bebington, Parkinson’s shop, 'The Foxes', next door to Mere Brook House, Vineyard Farm Shop, The Cheese Shop in Chester, French Corner in Liverpool and Bates Dairy (supplied by our own farm) – And the honey, is in fact, Mere Brook Honey!

Unusually for a chef, I get to meet the guests and we often end up swapping recipes!

National B&B Week 2019 - 18th-24th March 2019

Did you know that there are over 20,000 B&Bs in the UK, and that they generate over £2 billion annually to the UK economy? This is something that we think is worth celebrating, that’s why we are participating in National B&B Week 2019!

Mere Brook House has recently celebrated it's 10 year anniversary, and in this past year alone we have hosted countless weddings, celebrations and business meetings and welcomed hundreds of guests, including The Great British Bake Offs Prue Leith. We have also opened our doors to a BBC film crew, who used the house to film a 90 minute drama named "Care" which starred Sheridan Smith and Alison Steadman. 

In October 2017 the Mayor of Wirral unveiled a blue plaque in recognition of the incredible Ann Davison, the first female to sail the Atlantic single handed. Ann lived at Mere Brook for four years and the house features in one of her books – in fact she refers to living at Mere Brook as some of her happiest times.

Over the past 10 years we have been honoured to win numerous awards including Bed & Breakfast of the Year and The Independent Business Award at the Liverpool City Region Tourism Awards 2017 and after taking a year out we are delighted to be shortlisted at The Liverpool City Region Tourism Awards 2019 in two categories, Hotel of the Year and Independent Tourism Business of the Year. In 2015 we were shortlisted for The National Tourism awards run by Visit England in the bed and breakfast category. Last year we were also awarded a Special Certificate of Excellence from Tripadvisor to celebrate 5 years of consistently excellent reviews! 

So from the 18th to the 24th of March 2019 I hope you will join us in applauding all the great things that independent hoteliers contribute to the hospitality industry!

BE PART OF WIRRAL'S BOROUGH OF CULTURE YEAR

logo


I hope you are all aware by now that Wirral is the Borough of Culture for the Liverpool City Region in 2019. This is a relatively new initiative where the spotlight will be put on a different borough of the region each year highlighting existing and new cultural events. St Helens was the first borough in 2018 to lead the way and this year is Wirral's turn.

I am delighted by the amazing programme of events, many of which are new, that are planned for 2019 some of which are listed below - and how amazing it is that Tour of Britain cycle race have also chosen Wirral to be involved in their internationally renowned race.

2019 gives us a real opportunity to showcase Wirral to visitors and put this wonderful place on the map.

There will be many ways that those businesses and organisations involved in offering services and facilities to visitors can get involved and a meeting will be arranged in early March when more of the practical and operational details can be shared which I urge you to attend.

Lorna Tyson,
Chair of Wirral Visitor Economy Network

The first event is 'Animated Square' in Hamilton Square on Saturday 23rd March, for more information see here.
