Blakes restaurant is located inside the luxurious 4-star Hard Days Night Hotel in Liverpool. The hotel is famously themed after the fab four, and Blakes is located in the city's 'Beatles Quarter' next to the well known Cavern Club. The light and airy dining room is decorated with colourful Sergeant-Pepper-inspired artworks, and the organic, seasonal menu features classic modern British favourites. We constantly change our menus and always use produce which is locally sourced. These include our selection of cheeses and different flavoured ice creams.
