The Ink in the Well
You can’t miss the bright blue facade of The Ink in the Well on the iconic Lark Lane. This 2021 opening serves up consciously sourced brunch, small plates and larger dishes in a pub and canteen that balances sophistication with accessibility.
The focus is on sustainability with ethically reared meat, ingredients that are 80% organic and everything sourced within a 50-mile radius. Go for the beluga lentil lasagne, or braised short rib cottage pie, or their signature house burger. There are plentiful options for carnivores, vegans and gluten-free eaters.
Expect a level of complexity on your plate that will see you googling some ingredients on the sly. Cider gastrique? Garlic migas? Sherry lacquer? As our Liverpool Confidentials editor put it, “They all sound like contestants on RuPaul’s Drag Race.”
At the bar, cask ales are local and all wines are natural and organic. Cocktails are a speciality. It’s dog-friendly so combine your visit with a walk in nearby Sefton Park.
