Liberty Brown is ideally situated for me when I finish work, just on the Hylton Retail park, and I could probably walk from our studios to it, I didn't...I took the car, who wants to walk when they've had a big meal?? Myself and Mike were met by Helen who showed us to our table, which was one of their large booths. I liked this as it not only was comfy but plenty of room between us and the table next to us. There is nothing worse when you feel squashed in and can't relax because you are aware the next table is right on you.The whole restaurant has a very relaxed and comfortable feel to it.
We were given enough time to order while we had some drinks, before Jess came over. The menu is extensive with a choice of mains and starters, everything from pizza and pasta to grills and foods from around the world. I started with a goats cheese salad (I know very healthy!) and Mike had potato skins. The salad was gorgeous, it was so much more than just a bit of lettuce and cheese. It has sundried tomotoes, olives, goats cheese various salad leaves all tossed in a dressing. It was a decent portion as well, something that I would definetlry have again.
After a short wait, we were brought our main dishes. I had plumped for a burger and Mike had slow cooked sausage bolognaise, both were a big portion of food. My burger inparticular was massive, my first thought was I woule never be able to take a bite. It arrived on a long plate stacked high with salad, the burger, cheese and three huge onion rings. It was so big it need a wooden steak to hold it all together...ok, maybe more a long stick, but still HUGE!! I did have to take the onion rings out to be able to take a bite, but it was still a big burger, accompanied by fries and a salsa. The burger was really meaty and I thought I might not finish it...I did :)
After a little look over the sweet menu, we decided that we couldn't resist and Mike ordered a chocolate fudge cake and I went for the white chocolate and raspery cheesecake. I'm a bit of a sucker for a good cheescake and this was one of the best I've tasted. It was very creamy with a lovely bite from the raspberry.
We couldn't fault our experience at Liberty Brown's from the moment we walked in the staff were very friendly and made us feel comfortable. The restaurant is light and airy and well decorated with a menu which has a wide choice of dishes to suit everyones tastes.
