Scouse Momma and Halloween

Celts, who lived 2000 years ago in Ireland, the UK and Northern France, celebrated their new year on 1st November.

Scouse Momma and Slim’s Pork Chop Express

An impromptu evening out with Child #1 took us to Slim’s Pork Chop Express on Seel Street. The bar is downstairs and there’s a few tables here but the main part of the restaurant and the kitchen are upstairs. The whole restaurant is cosy and casual. The loo is downstairs too, very clean and large… Read more »

Scouse Momma and Lucha Libre

The Husband and I decided to eat out for Sunday lunch for a change and settled on Lucha Libre in Wood Street.

Scouse Momma and The Tavern

The flashing arrow and neon food sign remind me of a prop from BeetleJuice, and there’s the model train that runs along the almost ceiling high track. I’ve eaten Sunday breakfast at The Tavern more… Read more »

Scouse Momma and IMAX Liverpool One

    A random day off work so me and Husband decide to catch a movie we’ve been wanting to see. We chose the 11am showing so jump the bus into the city centre. Husband asks, ‘Are we on a date?’ which makes me laugh, compared to the younger people of today who have a… Read more »

  We were looking for somewhere for a midweek family celebration and decided to put The Hub through its paces. We’d been looking for somewhere that could easily accommodate our group of 25 with a variety of foods to suit the different age groups. A few places made the grade but the deciding factor for… Read more »
