With the arrival of spring we all want to rush outside and make the most of the good weather (when it does arrive) and there’s no better place than relaxing in a park or our favourite bars and restaurants where you can dine outdoors. Including ones you may not have even known existed until now…
Hidden in one of Liverpool’s largest and most popular parks, and one that you may have frequented often as part of your daily exercise during lockdown, is a secret garden and it’s about to add to the Easter excitement. This beautiful garden located in Calderstones Park will be opening once more from next week to serve food and drink outdoors.
Set in the private gardens of the iconic Mansion House, visitors can enjoy food and drink at one of the dining spots from the magic date of April 15 until April 18. The menu features creamy mushroom, bacon and penne pasta; beetroot and goat’s cheese risotto; deep fried halloumi with a mixed leaf salad; fish finger butty; and marinated chicken in a pitta bread served with rosemary salted chips.
You’ll be able to book a tables of up to six people at The Secret Garden, run by The Reader at Calderstones. The Secret Garden in Calderstones Park also has a licensed bar meaning you can enjoy a refreshing drink as you catch up with family and friends this Easter all within a gorgeous, secluded setting.
While you’re at Calderstones Park, there is plenty to explore including bagging a book from The Reader Shop, which will be open 11am to 4pm, Monday to Sunday. There aren’t many things more relaxing than getting absorbed in a book surrounded by nature and Calderstones Park has plenty of space for it.
The Secret Garden will be open from 12pm – 4pm during the Easter bank holiday weekend (April 15-18). A £10 deposit is required for all bookings. You can book yourself a table at The Secret Garden here.
