Places to Eat

The Wirral has a unique microclimate that lends itself to the production of quality ingredients and, as such, the area has attracted a number of award-winning producers and chefs over the years. Wirral’s food experts are passionate about sourcing natural ingredients from the local environment, resulting in fantastic places to eat and drink. You'll be amazed at the number and range of places to eat. We count ourselves very lucky to have such quality on our doorstep.

The Wheatsheaf (known as The Thatch by locals) is the oldest pub on the Wirral and retains many original features. It serves award-winning real ales and classic British cuisine in the pub and its converted barn restaurant, “The Cowshed”. In the village is The Seven Stars, a traditional pub with a good food offering. The Lawns restaurant specialises in fine dining food and, just down the road at The Red Fox gastro pub, you will find perfectly cooked international cuisine.

Within ten minutes drive there is The Devon Doorway, which will suit all tastes and appetites. Further into Heswall, meanwhile, Gustos Italian restaurant has a lively and sparkly atmosphere, whilst Paolos specialises in pizzas cooked fresh to order in their log fired pizza oven... Ideal for sharing!

Parkgate is an old seaside town and is home to one of our favourite restaurants No 1 Mostyn Square, which overlooks the marshlands, along with the very well known Chinese restaurant, Mr Chows. And for gastro pub fayre, positioned at the end of the parade, you'll find The Boathouse.

For something different, go to the beach of Lower Heswall and visit Sheldrakes restaurant. On a nice day you would think you were abroad! Or perhaps take a walk through the woods at Thurstaston and you'll be surprised to find Benty Farm Tearooms, full of excellent homemade cakes. A must for a tasty lunch is Claremont Farm, where you can purchase the local produce they use in their dishes from the farm shop, or try Gorge'Us in Bebington to sample their amazing flapjacks. For outstanding soups and fresh food, try Thyme Out Cafe at Heswall Hills (one of Donalds favourites - if you spot a pair wellingtons at the doorstep, he is in residence!).

There are plenty more places to choose from, so please feel free to enquire when booking or take a look at the "Other Places to Eat" page.

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!

Wirral Borough of Culture 2019

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.
