& Company, Liverpool | review

It's been a long time since I went to a press meal, thanks to Covid, so when I was invited to visit the new &Company on Mann Island in Liverpool I couldn't wait to get down there. I took my sister-in-law with me, and after a bit of a parking debacle, we made it to the restaurant.

&Company, Mann Island

&Company is located on Mann Island behind Avenue HQ, and next door to Brascoe Lounge. It has outdoor and indoor seating, an industrial vibe in terms of the decor, and plugs by some of the tables in case you want to sit and work in there. That's definitely on the cards for me in the near future! It's so well located for exploring the city, or if you work in one of the many offices nearby. The Museum of Liverpool is next door, and you're right on the docks too. Overall, it's a lovely setting for some food or even just a few drinks.

The Drinks at &Company, Mann Island

The menu has cocktails, mocktails, soft drinks, beers, wine, fizz, and hot drinks. I went for a pornstar martini, and my sister-in-law opted for a Pineapple and Sage Swizzle. Both were lovely, and reasonably priced for what they were and the location. We also got a coke each - glass bottle coke is so superior, am I right?!

The drinks menu is varied and you could easily come here just for a tipple or two if that's the sort of mood you're in.

The Food at &Company, Mann Island

But of course, we were dying to try the food on offer here. I ordered the garlic bread with mozzarella to start with, which was one of the best cheesy garlic breads I've ever tasted. Soft, not too much garlic, plenty of cheese. Delicious! We then ordered a sandwich each: I got the halloumi and charred red pepper, and Alice went for the chicken parm. These were both really nice too. We also ordered some sides - the much-raved-about arancini balls and the incredible rosemary and parmesan fries. These were both amazing. Worth going here just for both of these, I think!

I don't think the food is the cheapest, but it's definitely worth it for a nice treat or a working lunch...

We had a fab time at &Company, Mann Island. The food and drinks are delicious, and the staff are an absolute dream. I can't wait to go back again!
