As a family with both parents working full time we sometimes want to forget the cooking and go somewhere we know will give us all a great meal. Our “go to” restaurant is the Marino Lounge in New Brighton on the Wirral. Not near you? This restaurant is part of a chain and we have also visited Torello in Prestatyn, Wales which had the same great menu and food although they were very busy when we went and the service wasn’t quite as en pointe as it is at the Marino Lounge. They have a vegan and gluten free menu, various dairy free milk alternatives for your cappuccino and we always dine well. The tapas selection is great and Steve’s fave is the gluten free hero burger without cheese and with a side of gluten free hummus with bread. Visit their website (thelounges.co.uk) to find one near you, you won’t be disappointed!
