Stop the press, I said, Stop ......the .......Press!

We've only gone and done it again!

Yes folks, we're a 2014 Winner of the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence......on a roll for a hat trick now!


Larkins' Restaurant has the freshest food in town prepared and served by the friendliest restaurant owners you're ever likely to meet.......The Larkin Family!

In the light of concerns expressed in 2013 regarding the sourcing of meat based products, we asked our suppliers to guarantee to us that the meat they supply has been sourced via fully traceable supply chains ensuring that it is free from contamination and safe to eat. We have created a special web page that provides full details of this assurance. 

Rest assured that if you order Beef from Larkins then that is exactly what you will be served!

The only horsing around at Larkins' is when we party!

About Us

Larkins' Restaurant offers exceptional food and fantastic service in a new venue located just off Duke Street, St Helens in what was once known as The Orange House although some may remember it as The Plaza Night Club - see our All Our Yesterday's webpage for further information re the history of this iconic building. 

The building has been totally refurbished and we have ground floor access with stairs and a lift to the first floor restaurant and bar area.

A special feature is what we refer to as the Tower Room. This can be booked for larger groups* (up to 16) and provides a group of diners the opportunity to enjoy their meal in a fantastic section of the restaurant that is raised above and away from the main dining room. Unfortunately, the Tower Room is reached via a short flight of stairs and may not be accessible to all.

* The Tower is booked strictly on a first come, first served basis. You are welcome to book the Tower for smaller groups. However, if the booking is for 12 or fewer diners then the booking will be subject to a Service Charge of £15. Please note that at certain times e.g. when we are serving Christmas Fayre menus or when Ticketed Events are taking place, the Tower may not be available or, if it is, Special Booking Restrictions may apply.


From a simple pot of tea or cup of coffee accompanied with a slice of our scrummy cakes, via a full English Breakfast or one of our famous lunch menus, right the way through to our our Early Bird Evening and Fine Dining a la carte Dinner fayre menus, you can be assured that there will always be something at Larkins' that will wet your appetite.

We are passionate about the food we serve and whilst our menus will always include our well-loved traditional British dishes, we pride ourselves on the variety of the dishes from all over the world that we are able to introduce to our clientele. 

Have a look at our sample menus for a mouth-watering insight into our range of delicious dishes from around the world.


Of course, we celebrate many traditional events through out the year. From Valentine's to Mothering Sunday, St Patrick's Day to Halloween, there's something for everyone. But, if you're looking for something different then why not try one of our Dinner and Cabaret nights? Click on our Forthcoming Events and Offers page for more information.

By the way, we always serve complimentary fresh breads and a bottle of our Corporation Pop (see the bottle label for full details!) when we seat our diners.


We have a superb, well-stocked bar and rest assured that we have taken the time to source only the finest wines to ensure they compliment our menus perfectly.


We have standard BT Hub WiFi which you can use to connect to the Internet. If you are dining with us then please ask for the password.

Free WiFi is available to customers whilst on our premises. This service is provided on the strict understanding that customers accept that Larkins’ Restaurant and its employees cannot be held liable for any issues that may result from the WiFi signal ‘dropping out’. Connecting to the WiFi signal constitutes acceptance of this condition of use.

We accept all major Credit Cards 


Let us know if you have dietary restrictions / preferences - our friendly staff will help you find just the meal you want.

We are not a 'Fast Food' outlet. We cook / prepare all meals from fresh ingredients to order. Therefore, please understand that there may be a delay in getting each course to you. This may be particularly so in busy periods, if your party is a large one or if you haven't made a reservation (whilst reservations are not necessary, we do recommend that you do book, especially in busy periods or if your party is a large one).

We trust that you will understand.

Our view is that good food should be enjoyed in a relaxed way but, if you do have time constraints then let your waiter know when you are seated or, if you book ahead, when you make your reservation.
