His & Hers was at the launch of Mason’s, located next door to Epic’s Seel Street Hotel, and loved the food, cocktails and party atmosphere that night. It is a beautiful open-planned interior. The staff are more than just friendly and helpful: to be fair they are epic. Nina, in between serving food, found the time to stop and chat about the restaurant, the foodie revolution, and the advantages of living in Liverpool.
Mason’s, the restaurant, has introduced a Sunday roast at an introductory offer of just £10 per person. Centred around family style sharing, the restaurant is encouraging its guests to tuck into a whole chicken or a large piece of roast beef. There’s also a vegetarian option – Mason’s homemade nut roast. It is a carve up: folks can dig in and share.
From 1pm until it is gone every Sunday, roasts can be for sharing or served individually. The trimmings are epic too: thyme roasted potatoes, delicious cauliflower cheese, tender stem broccoli, mangetout, roast baby rainbow carrots and oversized homemade Yorkshire puddings. The nut roast came with tomato sauce: both are made from scratch. There are walnuts and herbs in the mix and it is crunchy and juicy, with zing. The sauce is a perfect accompaniment. There was more chicken than a person could eat; well this person at least. Luckily my companion came to the rescue. We still, somehow, found room to share a Mason’s Eton Mess and we loved it. The meringue was both chewy and squidgy (technical terms for sublime); and the fruit desirably sharp in contrast, with glorious home-made ice-cream.
Mason’s has unveiled its impressive seven metre screen. Families can watch the footie or gather around one of the restaurant’s large tables and feast on all a classic roast dinner represents. Quality family time on match day, or any Sunday sounds too good to miss.
Paul Freeman, Mason’s Restaurant Manager, said: “Sunday roasts are a staple in Liverpool and we want to create that sharing, community feel with ours. It’s an absolute steal…Gather up your friends or family (in timely fashion).”
It is a mega meal deal. Thanks are due to Joel, head chef, for a wonderful feast, and some useful hints on making cauliflower cheese with that added, piquant attitude. As I recall the cauliflower cheese requires 3 different kinds of cheese, including Cheddar and Parmesan, a glisten of olive oil, and some tender loving care. The giant Yorkshire puddings are full of flavour; as is the gravy with perfect consistency, and robust additions of meat juices and, I think, white wine.
Kevin was on hand to introduce us to the lovely staff, and I cannot imagine many better ways to celebrate Sunday. He advised that roasts are there whilst they last, so get booked in early to avoid disappointment.
