Bavarian biers, classic twists on classic European dishes and a great atmosphere: Albert’s Schenke Restaurant Review.
New Bavarian bar and restaurant on Hanover Street, Albert’s Schenke, launched with a lavish party on Thursday 25th July. The venue is fully open to public from Sunday 28th July, after this weekend’s ticketed Bier Festival launch.
Mission Mars, the team behind award-winning food and drink venues such as Albert’s Schloss, Rudy‘s Neapolitan Pizza, The Elephant in Woolton and The Viking in West Kirby, threw open the doors to this fantastic new venue which is already looking to set win over the people of Liverpool with amazing food and drink options.
Albert’s Schenke packs an impressive bar set up with beers and pilsners from Bavaria and Bohemia, alongside the best local craft biers from the Liverpool area. There are over 20 biers on tap, curated by the on-site bier masters. We also sampled some lovely German gin and the cocktails and mocktails passed around were enough for us to revisit Albert’s Schenke again in the future. We hadn’t even had any of the food yet!
The Cook Haus brings a distinctly modern take on classic dishes including the Raclette Burger with melting Swiss Cheese and The Black Forest Ham, Egg & Chips. There are rugged and rustic dishes such as Sformato, a baked truffled mashed potato with melting nuggets of alpine cheese, to Bavarian classics such as Schweinshaxe, Haus kebabs, schnitzels and sausage.
To start we ordered the Burrata and Spiced Cauliflower dishes which gave us a great indication of how the rest of the food was going to taste. They were both delicious and just the right size for an appetizer. We opted for the Ham, Egg and Chips and the Pan Fried Sea Bass for mains. Both were excellent, bursting with flavour and the quality of the dishes really made it a memorable affair.
There was just enough room for dessert and we were pleasantly surprised by the variety of options with the likes of Apple Struddel, Pear Riccota and Almond Torte and the classic Chocolate Brownie. We couldn’t resist opting for the Chocolate Brownie and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Firstly, the size of the brownie was generous especially after eating two courses. It also tasted incredibly good alongside the ice cream and the pretzel proline on the side giving it an extra crunch.
Albert’s Schekne is the kind of place you take someone you really want to treat to a quality meal and night out. You can start off with drinks in the bar and move over to the restaurant or vice versa, it works brilliantly well and is somewhere where both the restaurant and bar are of equal importance.
We were also treated to live music from Lucie Meiselle performing a mix of classic and modern songs with a unique and gentle take, accompanied by the wonderful pianist Liviu Gheorghe. Albert’s Schenke will feature live music and entertainment each Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday
