The range at this Southport grill and steakhouse is incredible. With a packed schedule of events and weekly specials, and separate menus laying out a selection of small plates, fish dishes, sides, desserts, burgers, chargrilled meats and seasonal dishes, Wilson’s Kitchen is encyclopaedic in scope. This restaurant in the town centre, by the monument on Lord Street, uses sustainably raised meat sourced from local and global suppliers wherever possible. This goes for the rare-breed steaks, cuts of wild boar and Iberico pork, and the beef that makes its way into the restaurant’s signature burgers.
we were recommended to try this restaurant, we arrived on time and was seated straight away, the menu was just what we were expecting and ordered starter of chicken wings between us, no plates so had to use the board they were served on. Main course arrived and my wife had to send her steak back as it was cold, no one asked if I would like to send mine back so that we could eat together,jenga chips arrived which we had not ordered when my wife's steak came back the owner (we think) hovered over her while she tried it, and serving the peppered sauce in a small glass bottle is not ideal as it was so hot you could not handle it still not hot but as I had nearly completed my meal she decided to eat it, no one asked if we would like any sauces ie Mayo or ketchup, when the bill arrived they had not taken the jenga chips from it, so we paid in full and in fact left a small tip, service was poor but why oh why have beutiful steaks if your not able to cook it
I visited Wilson's Kitchen on Saturday, and had one of the best steaks I have ever had, my husband's double burger was a triumph. Highly recommended. Well done Wilson's Kitchen!
Overall are experience was good, our waitress was excellent. The fish/chicken/burgers ordered were very nice but unfortunately the steak ordered were all over cooked. 2 steaks ordered to be rare were at best medium. 1 steak was sent back and from the noise coming from the kitchen the chef clearly disagreed with my opinion that the steak wasn't cooked how I ordered it. I did receive another steak which was cooked rare.
At the time of writing, Wilson’s Kitchen had introduced its autumn set menu. Choose from one to three courses for a fixed price and get a great introduction to this central Southport steakhouse’s offering – venison tartare and fig salad, beef bourguignon and a classic meat pie made with 28-day dry aged Lancashire beef roasted with bone marrow, peppercorns and juniper berries. You can’t go wrong with the boozy bourbon-drenched plum pot with honey mascarpone or the autumn berry mess to finish. Other special meal deals abound, with steak nights on Tuesdays, a midweek burger and ribs offer, and, of course, a classic British roast on the sabbath keeping this Lord Street restaurant abuzz most nights.
Unique special events are also a strong point at Wilson’s Kitchen. Typical celebrations include a five-course tasting menu exploring wild game (venison, mallard, woodcock, hare), a special All Hallows' Eve menu, a focus on fish and seafood events, and a popular tapas and tipples evening. Southport’s burger fanatics are regulars to this emporium to meat in the town centre, and Wilson’s Kitchen does the burger with inimitable flair, choosing to make their stacks from huge 6oz handmade patties, in-house seasoning blends, specialty cheeses and sides. There’s more: each burger is named after a global location, and uses ingredients typical of the place. The British Bulldog uses three cuts of British beef and Tickler Cheddar while The Nessie uses smoked Scottish mackerel with a chargrilled lobster and Tuscan, Spanish and Moroccan options take the burger to more distant lands. With so much more on offer here, our best recommendation is to book a table and explore Wilson’s Kitchen yourself – you’re going to have to come back for a repeat visit!
