Review: The Stag & Rainbow, Beefeater Liverpool

We were really chuffed to be invited to review the Beefeater Stag & Rainbow restaurant on Queens Drive in Liverpool to try out their new summer menu. We love taking the kids out for food, and we are always on the lookout for affordable child-friendly places to eat. I'd say we eat out maybe twice a month, it's always good to not have to cook and a treat definitely does us good. With us having the three kids we appreciate the price of food and the speed of the service. It is entirely different when we are out as a couple - we really don't mind waiting for food - but when you have little ones you really don't want them waiting around - they get bored and fed up and then run away. (Well, Rosie does!)

This was no such problem when we visited the Beefeater. The service was super-speedy, staff were friendly and helpful. There were worksheets and crayons for the kids to colour in, featuring Mr Men. This kept them entertained and happy while we waited for food.

There was plenty to choose from on the menu, and I liked that the kids menu was pretty much mix and match - our kids like to pick different sides, although the two youngest had the identical macaroni and cheese (I tasted it - it was lovely!) Myself and Warren chose steaks and Emily ordered the pulled pork burger. As I am watching what I am eating it was no problem for them to change chips to a jacket potato, so I was really chuffed with that.

We all really enjoyed our food. We'd even go as ar as to say that this was one of the best meals that we have had out with the kids - we couldn't fault it - everything was cooked perfectly and we completely cleared our plates.

We don't always have dessert but because we loved this meal so much we treated the kids to a chocolate brownise sundae. (OK - I nicked a bit of the brownie - I'll admit it!) It was lovely. There was none of that left by the time the kids had demolished it!

Beefeater have also started doing milkshakes in time for the summer - but we didn't try these as we were stuffed from all our lovely food!

We really did enjoy this meal. The food was all fresh, tasty and reasonably priced. Our bill came to around £60 - that was for two meals from the kids' menu, three from the summer menu, the dessert and drinks for all of us. This was excellent value and definitely money well spent. We will definitely be returning to The Stag & Rainbow at some point this summer - it was lovely.

We were given a voucher towards the cost of our meal for the purpose of this review. All words and views are my own.
