Absolutley love this place, their food is always delicious and they give massive portions so you wont be leaving the place hungry. They have a well stocked bar as well if your going to be hitting the sauce over dinner. Its pretty big inside so you could chance walking in off the street but you can find the number below incase you would prefer to play it safe.

I'm sure everyone is aware at this stage that liberty grill is just the bomb. Their food is extermely good quality and is never short on flavor. They are big into their gourmet burgers so if that tickles your fancy your on to a winner. Their wont be a crum left on your plate. Definitely book this if you plan on going their for valentines. They also do an epic breakfast menu if you don't make it there valentines night!

They don't do evening meals but they do a cracking all day breakfast, its not all they do, there are other options on the menu but its what it is famous for. Its particularly tasty if you've had one too many the night before and bowl of dried cardboard cereal just wont fill the gap. Its next to mad for those of ye who dont know where it is. Yum!
