As a part of the new New Brighton – a veritable renaissance of cafes, bars, and restaurants – Blackberry Grove is in a privileged position when it comes to the transformation of the historic Wallasey resort, the kind of place that’s bound to attract a discerning (and hungry and thirsty) clientele from among those exploring the beautiful Wirral Peninsula. From breakfast through to sumptuous lunches and dinners, Blackberry Grove’s address of the corner of Grosvenor Road and Victoria Road (the old Peninsula Dining Rooms) is also a destination for local vegans, vegetarians, and gluten-free eaters, with a conscientious menu catering to all manner of dietary requirements. That said, the porter-braised chorizo, avocado,tomato, cress and Swiss cheese Blackberry Special burger is sure to be a hit with carnivores. Don’t forget, Blackberry Grove is a bar, too, with a fine selection of craft beers, wines and spirits. Book in for this (new) New Brighton Gem to beat the rush.
Had a lovely meal last night at Blackberry Grove to celebrate my daughters GCSE results. The staff were fantastic - very pleasant, nothing was too much trouble and it was very easy to attract their attention. The food was delicious. Only only comment - please use a better quality Ketchup. The portions are very generous - didn't have room for a pudding but you can have them to take away! Very clever idea. It was very busy but the staff coped extremely well. Definitely worth a visit - we'll be going back! Thanks very much - lovely evening.
Me and my son, who is veggie but considering becoming vegan, have been here twice now and it's been lovely both times. Loads of vegetarian and vegan options along with more traditional meat and fish options - we were spoilt for choice. The service is great and the staff and owners are very friendly. Will definitely visit again. :-)
This is a must go to place to eat. I loved it. The staff and owner so friendly and the food was amazing. We booked to go back as we left. I have a number of food intolerances but I left feeling like a normal person as they catered for my every need. I even had a gluten free vegan chocolate brownie with vegan ice cream and it was better than any dessert I have ever had.
Excellent food and a great atmosphere. I tried the vegan food and it was delightful and it is fantastic that all food is gluten free.
We sought out Blackberry Grove due to its Gluten Free kitchen since my twenty-something daughter has Celiac Disease. The food and atmosphere were excellent. The owner was a delight to speak with, and we wish her much success. We need more GF restaurants! We found the menu a bit limited and the live music was marginal - both should be easy fixes. We recommend Blackberry Grove for good food in a casual atmosphere with nice people.
Lovely relaxed atmosphere, very quick service, attentive staff, delicious food...who could ask for more? I will be recommending the Blackberry Grove to all my family and friends!!
We had a lovely meal at Blackberry Grove, the most my wife has eaten in ages. Cant wait to go back and have another beautifully cooked meal.
Food was good but not as described. I ordered the duck with fig mash and berry compote. I was told they had not compote but I could have something else, the choices of which didn't go. The duck was very nice but I failed to find any fig in the mash. What I ate though was very good. My wifes Halloumi burger with slaw, salad & chips was very nice. The room though was very cold & draughty.
First time here for us. We chose it especially because they offer a good choice of vegan meals for our daughter. The food and service were very good, nice ambiance and decor too. Only negative was there were quite a lot of things on the menu that were unavailable, which I thought was strange for a Friday night
It's a lovely atmosphere, and the design is relaxed industrial chic. However, some of the seats aren't very comfortable. The manager/owner was warm, friendly and informative but the remainder of the service was somewhat slow, albeit polite. The coffee was bitter and lukewarm and took a long time to arrive. Most of the food was very nice, but the choice of desserts, considering we were there early in the evening was quite depleted. Due mainly to the warmth of the guy in charge and my own food being enjoyable, I'd give it another go.
