Restaurant Review - Frankie's, Hoylake 9/10

I had a lovely few days with Mum, which was rounded off by lunch at Frankie's in Hoylake with Dave Bro joining us on his return from Leeds. Luckily it is a stone throw from Mum's flat and I will definitely be returning with Jo as we all had a great time.

Horse racing little man Frankie Dettori and grumpy/ genius chef Marco Pierre White opened the restaurant this year in the £7m Holiday Inn redevelopment of the Kings Gap Hotel, and is one of 6 other Frankie restaurants including London, Dublin and Dubai. 


As the weather was outstanding the outdoor space really came into its own. We all agreed that we could be anywhere in the world and I for one could have sat there all day soaking up the rays and drinking cocktails. However, I was driving so that wasn't possible.....this time!

As it was lunch time the others were quite restrained, but as I am running the Edinburgh Marathon I got stuck into the fat boy cannelloni. Mum had the caesar salad that came with anchovies! It is one of Jo's pet hates that they aren't always included in the dish so this was a big thumbs up. Dave Bro has the prosciutto and avocado salad which ticked all the right boxes and my cannelloni was the ideal mix of pasta, spinach and cheesy goodness - it was a struggle to finish but I managed to soldier on until the bitter end!! All in we couldn't fault the food at all.

I had to leave Mum and Dave Bro to their desserts as I had to rush to miss the traffic so I have no pictures and am unsure what they had. But I am sure they would be been a brilliant finale to our lunch. Overall I would definitely recommend Frankie's to anyone who asks - it certainly puts one or two other restaurants in the local area to shame. 9/10.

I had no trouble navigating through all the tabs and information was very easy to access. I found what I wanted in no time at all. Pretty awesome. Would appreciate it if you add forums or something
