Serving up a fabulous small plate menu alongside our deli & No.1 Sunday roast. We pride ourselves on sourcing local ingredients - why not take a look at our menu and see what takes your fancy?

The Workshop celebrates the hospitality industry with a unique take on a small plate restaurant. Our ground floor wine bar offers 40 different wines. The wine list will take you on a journey across the globe, from the crowd pleasing to the not so readily available grape. All wines available by the glass. Matching this is our first floor restaurant, which has a big seafood influence, alongside vegetarian and meat dishes, helping to create our small plate menu.

Our busy bar also throws up a good selection of craft ales, fully stocked gin bar & not forgetting our cocktail menu. So call in and sample our family run venue with over 50 years experience in providing good quality food & drinks.

Nice Venue quirky decent food tapas style cuisine or the same concept
Went with my fiancé we had 3 small plates of food each and a desert expecting it to cost in the region of around £45 it came to £72 we didn’t drink any alcohol and would expect much better.
Panoramic prices but with out the quality and glitz.
My fiancé was shocked at the price we were charged

Very disappointing particularly given the previous reviews
I understand the anytime concept of small plates but as the restaurant was nearly empty I asked if would be possible serve a veg dish with a meat dish but was told NO.
So we had sandwiches which were very disappointing and over priced
The french fries and the coffee were good

We got the cote de boeuf, taragoshi fries and the bread - it was all really lovely and we enjoyed it.

I probably would of liked the beef a little more well done - or atleast the choice to have it done, but overall it was amazingly tasty and well worth the price.

Booked in for friday evening small plates. Thoughtful staff and nice food. First time out since lifting of lockdown and it was a bit too busy for me and no-one else wore masks which was disappointing but I understand the situation. Ambience was helped lots by cracking background music (have there own DJs!) Will visit again when I'm more confident about the pandemic.

Food is thoughtfully prepared and full of flavour. Small plates rather than true tapas. Good quality ingredients.
Food does come as ready in kitchen which can be irritating if most come together as it feels forced. Start to end was under an hour which really doesn’t allow customer either to relax nor to taste variety of wines on offer.

Went for an impromptu lunch date yesterday - we & our 2 dogs were made very welcome & felt relaxed & comfortable throughout. A great selection of small plates with something for everyone. Delicious, imaginative food, a great drinks proposition and relaxed, inobtrusive but efficient service - our kind of place and it's walking distance! Just a shame that there weren't more customers in but I suspect that it's a lot busier of an evening.

Fantastic Food & Cool Cocktails are just two of the reasons why I like TWS!
We try to call in as often as we can, otherwise I start getting withdrawal symptoms for the Boquerones and Octopus!
You just don't get, or expect, exciting food like this in Crosby - an absolute must for "foodies!"
