A historic site in an historic part of central Liverpool, The Monro is a gastropub right in the heart of Ropewalks known for its use of locally sourced, farm-fresh ingredients. There are plenty of restaurants touting such an approach, but when The Monro, Liverpool was founded in 2003, this was a pioneering claim. Ever popular, The Monro’s singular charm is underlined by the beautiful heritage building down Duke Street in which the restaurant is housed and the kitchen’s considered offering, with tasting and weekend menus, a core selection of fresh favourites, and a superlative Sunday roast. Be sure to book to discover one of central Liverpool’s best places for refined and relaxed pub grub.
We’ve been to The Munro on many occasions now and each time the food has been amazing. This time I was part of group of 15 and the staff were very attentive, even with the size of the group.
The food was delicious, it's a lovely place, really nice decor. The staff were very efficient and pleasant. My whole party thoroughly enjoyed the night.
I booked here for Sunday lunch with the family, it was excellent! The roast beef was the best I've had in ages! All the family were impressed, smiles on every face!
The Monro offers food people want to eat, with its Fresh Favourites menu doing just that, every day of the week. But another reason people head to The Monro in Liverpool is to dine in an environment steeped in history. That and the fact that this vintage gastropub is located along Duke Street, in the midst of Liverpool’s bustling Ropewalks precinct. The Monro is named for the first merchant ship that made scheduled trips over the Atlantic to New York, but the building itself is a 17th-century edifice that once housed merchants, keeping home close to the docklands. Bear this in mind when you tuck into pub classics like small plates of homemade pork and black pudding sausage rolls with apple puree or The Monro’s famous haddock and chips with marrowfat mushy peas.
Come the weekend, diners can indulge in The Monro’s showcase menu, where the talented chefs pull out all the stops to impress you with their culinary flair. Typical dishes here might include a starter of goats’ cheese mousse, Claremont farm asparagus, and pigeon puree with pickled heritage carrots, brioche crumb and a micro salad of watercress. True to the purity of the ingredients, largely sourced from local producers and suppliers, main courses cover wild Morecambe Bay sea bass, pork chops, ribeye steaks, and lamb rump. For a really indulgent gastropub experience without peer in the Ropewalks, The Monro, Liverpool offers an opulent seven-course tasting menu for a fixed price per head, consisting of a bespoke selection of dishes dreamt up the very same day. Bringing all the upscale culinary palaver back down to earth, The Monro’s Sunday roast is a perennial favourite among Liverpool’s lovers of a solid Sabbath repast. However you want to dine, be sure to book – berths on The Monro are reliably limited!
