Sunday dining at Grill on the Square

Roasts worth travelling for, and an early evening winner

Published on February 20th 2011.

Sunday dining at Grill on the Square

Warrington's Grill on the Square has a nifty little mission statement of 'Great British Food Served with Style.' You can't get much more Great British than the traditional Sunday Roast, so it's no surprise that they go all-out to impress on this front.

They've got two options for people looking for an all-the-trimmings chow down. The first is Roast beef or Roast lamb shoulder, both served with Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes and seasonal vegetables for £10.95. The second is a Sunday Roast Dinner for two for £25 (£12.50 each) which changes weekly according to what looks good at the market.

They also do a low-priced early dining menu from Monday to Saturday from 3pm to 7pm where you get a starter and a main for £11.95. There's five options in each course to choose from including beer battered fish and chips with mushy peas, and Lancashire hot pot with pickled red cabbage.

Chef Adam Smith chooses his suppliers carefully, favouring local farmers whenever possible. He was a chef at Harvey Nichols and Michael Caines at Abode Manchester before he set up this place so he knows what makes a stand-out restaurant.

His efforts to create one here include a craving-inducing dessert menu which waves the British flag through treats such as Warm treacle tart with Cheshire clotted cream ice cream. And a better-than-average wine list – Grill on the Square has an excellent house wine (Le Bosq) and caters well for those looking to for something a bit special. Bottles on their fine wine list include Château Cantenac Brown 3rd Cru Classé Margaux 2004 and Pouilly Fumé Château de Tracy 2006.

They also do a classic cocktail menu, which is the very least we expect from a place that wants to attract the Sunday loafer crowd. Typical prices are £4.95 for a Finlandia Vodka Martini and £5.95 for a classic bellini.

Reports from Confidentialers who have eaten there are very positive – good food, good staff and an elegant but relaxed environment. The type of place which would make your Sunday in fact. Bring on the weekend.
