About Monkey Grinder

While it’s true that when you think of dining out in Liverpool, areas like Ropewalks and the Georgian Quarter spring to mind, although it’s Sefton Park that’s been causing the most buzz of late. Home to the bohemian Lark Lane, this area is brimming with new and exciting restaurants just begging to be tried. And one of the best in the area would, of course, be Monkey Grinder, a new spot which specialises in Spanish tapas that local foodies can’t get enough of. Located on the corner of Lark Lane and Hesketh Street, Monkey Grinder is the perfect spot for a casual drink and light bite, or a full-fledged Spanish culinary invasion.

More about Monkey Grinder, Liverpool

Monkey Grinder in Sefton Park is one of those places where one visit is all you need to know that it’s going to become a regular post-work haunt, or a go-to for catching up with old friends. The menu is based around Spanish tapas, making it the ideal spot for sharing dishes with your nearest and dearest while indulging in a cocktail or two – and its gin menu is well worth a look as well. This new kid on the Liverpool block is making waves with those who love food, and good food at that, so we should probably give you an idea of what to expect when paying Monkey Grinder a visit.

The menu is the star of the show, and we recommend getting straight to it and ordering a charcuterie board to get things going, where you’ll find delectable cured meats like jamon iberico, chorizo and salchichon alongside manchego, mahon and azul cheeses. Following that, why not opt for fillet steak with crispy polenta and kale, meatballs with caponata salsa, tiger prawns cooked in spicy garlic chilli sauce and roast fig crostinis with feta, confit tomato and fresh herbs? We can’t give it all away though, so it’s best you make a reservation at Monkey Grinder in Sefton Park to try it out for yourself. Located on the corner of Lark Lane and Hesketh Street, you’re in for a delightful Spanish tapas experience at this brand new Liverpool hotspot.
