24 Hardman Street, Liverpool L1 9AX
The Florist is a beautiful contemporary and unique floral styled restaurant and bar that is the cream of the crop in Liverpool’s ever growing world class food scene.
Situated in what was originally an old Victorian Royal School for the Blind, the Florist brings a breathe of fresh air to this Grand and Stunning Grade II historic listed building.
With a sleek bar and seating area to the left of its grand entrance, complete with two full-size in-bloom trees, an impressive central staircase and a chic drinking lobby to the right of the entrance, the scene is set for a very special experience.
Breath-taking floral installations, subtle neon lights, a floral phot wall and delicate tasteful furniture cover the interior of this beautiful building and create an atmosphere that is light, bright, airy and of course, fresh as a daisy.
As you are transported into a floral fairy tale, the interior designer has created a sensory experience that will enchant the senses and relax the mind, if you like flowers, then you are in for a floral treat.
The menu covers a combination of delicious meat, fish, vegetarian and vegan dishes, so there’s something for everyone and there is a great combination of world-wide cuisines that will not disappoint (British, Turkish, Asian, Americans etc).
Our starters came on a large rustic wooden platter that we created ourselves, picking 4 delicious choices from a combination of 16 starter dishes grouped in either a meat, fish, vegetarian or vegan category (4 per category) which you were able yo mix and match to yput own taste, creating your own platter.
All 4 of the choices we made were outstanding (deep fried camembert with homemade pickle, haddock fishcakes, Thai chilli pork chunks and a Chicken & Prawn Spring roll with a fresh mint dip). Main courses raged from traditional steak and fries (amazing!) home-made burgers, Stir-fries and even Grilled Kebabs and the desserts were pretty good too, we went for the American Cheesecake, just delish!
The extensive wine and cocktail list was outstanding, as were the prices! And there’s DJ’s and saxophonists (for that extra little bit of sophistication).
Overall, we can see why The Florist has been nominated as one of the best restaurants in the UK (2019)
Good luck ‘The Florist’ we hope you win, you really deserve it!
