The Ship and Mitre
After a recent trip to The Attic bar I’m keen to try a good variety of burgers in Liverpool, and to be honest I’ve eaten a lot of burgers recently, some good and some bad. My next stop after The Attic was The Ship and Mitre, which is quite easily one of the best pubs in Liverpool, a huge array of beers with real ales featuring prominently along with many many world beers. It’s second to none in regards to beer selection but are it burgers up to the same standard?
The Galley, as it is known, is a small hatch near the entrance, you queue up, order your grub, take a ticket and return to your seat. Burgers are the order of the day, although there are few other options, such as ciabatta and nachos. For a small fee of £6.50 I got the classic burger with chips and onion rings, a very decent price for a good serving of food.
The burger itself was clearly made on the premises, tasty meat and cooked reasonably well, although I would have liked the option to have it slightly pink in the middle, it was however quite under seasoned. The bun wasn’t the best, but it came with nice crisp salad and good chips. The onion rings were quite excellent, some of the best I’ve ever had, or would have been if they had any seasoning. The lack of salt in both the onion rings and burger show that a greater attention to detail is needed here, however this was a really good and very well priced burger. The bonus of it being in one of the best pubs in the city make it a required visit.
