As a post-essay-deadline celebration, a few friends in my programme invited me out last month to dinner and drinks at a lovely little restaurant off Penny Lane.
Yes, Penny Lane like the Beatles song. If you’re not familiar with Liverpool, Penny Lane is not a girl, but a charming street in the Allerton area dotted with local establishments. If you visit Liverpool, don’t just do a drive-by of the area, stop and have a meal at the 2011 North West Restaurant of the Year, Spire.
We ordered off the dinner prix fixe menu, which offers two courses for £13.95 and three for £16.95, a pretty good deal for the food you get.
The restaurant isn’t officially gluten-free, but I’m including it on this blog because it excellently caters to customers with food allergies and intolerances.
