Punch Tarmey’s Liverpool has launched in what is one of the biggest Irish pubs in the industry.
Sports-led, including brewery tours, with a family-friendly vibe daytime along with being a destination for party revellers at night, the vast venue will become a tourism hotspot says Andrew Mikhail chairman of Mikhail Leisure.
“We’ve invested approaching £2m into Punch Tarmey’s Liverpool and it’s a professional and personal dream come true for me especially because of my Irish roots. My great grandfather was a renowned bare-knuckle fighter nicknamed Punch Tarmey, the name that gave birth to an existing portfolio of bars we own and operate in the region. We’ve already had great initial feedback with many people commenting on the transformation and how stunning the pub looks.
“My dear nan was such a hard-working, humble Irish woman who came from nothing and saved every penny to see her family were ok. I know she’d be feeling very proud right now as we all are and we can’t wait to maximise the potential of this development at Cains Brewery. This is the first phase of four and we know people are really excited about us reviving the micro brewery as part of the second phase that will be ready in March 2019 including many of the old Cain’s favourites including Raisin Ale.”
Punch Tarmey’s food and drink menu includes signature dishes such as a Trio of Irish sausages with colcannon and onion gravy, Pogues’ marinated chicken breast burger with all the trimmings, Irish stew with soda bread, Bacon chops, Colcannon mash and cabbage, Steak and Guinness pie and Chickpea, sweet potato and spinach curry (vegan).
Drinks across a wide artisan range of beers, wines and spirits include rare Irish whiskeys and gin, plus craft and cask beers and classic cocktails.
