Looking for suggestions for nice place to eat on Wirral on a saturday night that can cater for about 12 to 15. variety of food rather than single cuisine. (not as far as chester). Riverhill oxton came to mind till i just read latest feedback. on my list so far
Red Fox Thornton Hough
Fox and Hounds Barnston (only because its just been done out)

Royal Oak, Bromborough, a bit more space than most places. Used to go regularly but not been for a while.

Red Fox is said to be very good

Boat House Parkgate (although it could well be booked up)

Chow's Parkgate They use a top room for larger parties (or they did)

Last one I most recently went to was Pollards in Willaston. Very nice.

Not looked at that one. One in oxton called Fraiche but youd pay a fortune and still be hungry. I can go round the art gallery if i want to see works of art. .


cheers DD Will check out Royal Oak.....must be 40 years since was last in there.. Think ive viewed about 20 online and some very nice ones as well.

Fox and Hounds Barnston is good too. It's been done out now and could probably handle that number. Worth a call. We had a very nice meal there the other evening.

Another popular venue is the Refreshment Rooms in Rock Ferry. (Used to be a grotty pub called the Admiral which was done over) We've had excellent food there and I walk the dog near there. It is getting hard to park there now it's getting so popular.

You might also try the Wheatsheaf in Raby. That's very good too!

Grove House in Wallasey but due to the lateness of your search and party size you may not get a table, normally book 6 weeks in advance.
The Manor Greasby
Amara Wallasey Village
anywhere that is as good a these will be booked I would imagine.

Hollins Hey New Brighton is very good for food, don't be put off by the reviews of the hotel accommodation.

Best place to eat must be at home, you know how clean the kitchen is and exactly what it is you are eating smile

Another vote for Jug and Bottle - I had a Christmas meal there in a group of 14 and it was very tasty, decent quantity too.

Thanks chaps. After trawling through scores of restaurant websites and menus and paying a visit to 5 finally bit the bullet and booked Red Fox out near Thornton Hough. Had a shortlist of 3 but whilst sampling a nice pint in the red fox booked on the strength of a woman walking out clutching a 60th Birthday balloon.. ! Unfortunately wont have the bus pass in time to get bus there..if indeed it has a passing service.
Must say some lovely places to scoff on the wirral. Only one i felt didnt quite live up to its hype having heard so many positives about it was The Refreshment Rooms. Didnt eat there so cant comment on the food. Done a good job in turning it back into a pub... the pensioners menu was ok but breakfast at £10 seemed bit ott.
Thanks for the Jug and Bottle recommendations..never knew it was there looks like a decent gastro pub with good real ale selection..will sample its food soon..

Fish I visited The Refreshments Rooms on Sunday not a place I had been to before, the breakfast was £7.95 which included toast and was more than big enough, So not sure about your £10.

Not a restaurant as such but a very nice tea room / cafe, good for light bites and a full English breakfast, Bluebells, The Grange, Grove Road, Wallasey, full English £4.95, very good.

£7.95 plus cup of tea £2 (or did you get the drinks included in the £7.95 ? not clear on menu ) Thought £12.95 for beer battered fish peas and chips was tadge on the high side. The weekday oldies menu wasnt bad Monday Tuesday Wednesday : Over 60's Special Menu 12 - 9pm
Smaller portions for the smaller appetite
2 Courses £9.95 3 Courses £11.95.

Thanks Caspar looks nice. saw tea room round corner near windsors Fleur de lhys or something like that. Missus partial to some afternoon tiffin !
