Royal Court’s Courtyard Bar & Kitchen opens its doors
A new drinking and dining space has opened in the old Penny Farthing pub next to Liverpool’s Royal Court.
The Roe Street theatre bought the bar earlier this year and has transformed the space into ‘Courtyard Bar & Kitchen’.
The new venue is being billed as great place to go for lunch, dinner or a late supper after a show and includes a drinks terrace and garden in the old yard, which the theatre says “provides a little oasis of greenery in the centre of town”.
New restaurant planned for Castle Street
Another new restaurant could soon be opening on Castle Street.
‘Heritage Restaurant’ has applied to Liverpool City Council for a licence to supply alcohol at 42 Castle Street.
If approved, Heritage will open next to Caffè Nero, on the junction with Cook Street.
The area surrounding Castle Street and Water Street, traditionally a commercial area of the city centre, has become home to an increasing number of bars and restaurants in recent years.
Liverpool Italian restaurants up for national honours
A clutch of Liverpool’s Italian restaurants have been nominated for top honours at the English Italian Awards 2017.
Campbell Square restaurant Amalia is in the running for both the Best Pizza and Best Pasta categories whilst Woolton Road’s Cucina di Vincenzo is up for the Best Newcomer award.
Italian Club Fish on Bold Street has been put forward for Healthy Dish of the Year with Seel Street’s Peacock also nominated in the Best Pizza section.
The awards, which celebrate the country’s Italian businesses, take place on 15 October at The Principal hotel in Manchester.
