Your Move


editor’s Letter... Welcome to the latest edition of Your Move. In this issue we cast the spotlight on the south of Liverpool, and look at the secrets to the area’s success on the property market. If you’re looking to while away the winter months with some home improvements, our latest guide offers tips on sprucing up your property too. We’ve also got a fantastic gallery from the Landlord & Property Show, as well as all the information on how to get your free tickets for the Home Buyers Show 2013. Plus we’ve caught up with the multitalented Matthew Xia as he gets set to make his directorial debut at the Playhouse, and as usual we’re bringing you some of the best events around Liverpool. Enjoy!

I was really pleased with my experience selling my house through Abode Estate agents, I received excellent customer service from beginning to end. All staff at Abode ensured my move was stress free and they helped me understand the entire moving process. As well as selling my property they helped me find my perfect house, which I am currently finishing off painting. I would most definitely recommend Abode to all my family and friends and have done so already. Carol White vendor of Allington Street, purchaser of Fulwood Drive.

Clients View Our house had been on the market for eight months when we decided we would move to another estate agent. We chose Move Residential because you came across as the most professional and motivated to sell our property. In the first few weeks you had secured more viewings than the previous agent had done in eight months and it was not long before we had secured an acceptable offer. The difference in approach from Move Residential is simple, you make the sale happen rather than wait for it to come to you. Having worked with Move Residential I would never work with another agent again. Thank you to all the staff at Move.

City of Liverpool

THE BEAUTIFUL SOUTH L18 For many years Allerton Road has been a top spot for Liverpool’s estate agents to trade from, and along with its surrounding South Liverpool suburbs, the area’s popularity amongst home buyers hasn’t waned either. We’ve caught up with some of the long standing estate agents in that section of the city to find out what makes it so special.

W o r d s b y N A T A s H A y o U N G

HOT TOPIC

Historic South Liverpool Those longing to live in an area that’s steeped in history need look no further than the south of the city. To begin with, the area makes for a whistle-stop tour of Beatles-related landmarks, from the blue plaquemarked Allerton home known as ‘Mendips’ where John Lennon grew up under the care of his Aunt Mimi, to the famous Penny Lane and Strawberry Field locations that inspired some of the Fab Four’s biggest hits. Delve deeper and there’s the historic Calderstones, located within the Harthill Greenhouse in the stunning Calderstones Park. The ancient stones are believed to be the oldest monument in Liverpool and are even believed to be older than Stonehenge. Plus terraces of Georgian homes and Victorian buildings are scattered around the area injecting character into its appearance.

The perfect place to buy and sell Just as men’s tailoring experts strive for a spot on London’s Savile Row, and Harley Street is home to the top medics, surely estate agents can stake their claim to South Liverpool’s Allerton Road. Shops, supermarkets and eateries sit amongst the estate agency branches which line the main street, showcasing the properties they have on offer throughout the area. Francesca Dunn is a valuer at the Allerton Road branch of Sutton Kersh, which is marking its 20th anniversary in the favoured area this year and is one of the longest standing agents there. According to Francesca, the fact that Allerton Road and its South Liverpool surroundings are such an attractive place to live is part of what

makes it such a “fantastic place to work” for estate agents. She says: “There is such a wide and attractive range of property within the location bringing many a different demographic to the area. “Allerton Road provides South Liverpool with a strong and central infrastructure making it a highly desirable place to live.” The area is brimming with beautiful family homes that are spacious in size and come with their own unique character. A typical example would be the threebedroom home on Reedale Close, Mossley Hill (pictured), which is currently being listed by Sutton Kersh for £269,950. Well presented throughout with plenty of garden space too, the property is in easy reach of the area’s wealth of amenities.

Reedale Close, Mossley

Family friendly Families in South Liverpool don’t have to venture far from their own home to carry out day to day necessities such as shopping, attending nearby renowned schools, or setting off on an easy commute to their workplace via the various transport links. Homes are also in close proximity to green spaces including Calderstones and Sefton parks, adding to the family friendly environment and putting properties a stone’s throw away from some of the city’s recreational facilities and major events. Samantha Clothier, the branch manager at Venmore on Allerton Road, has worked at the branch for eight years and says the area has always remained popular among home buyers. While she says buyers “love the hustle and bustle of the busy bars, restaurants and coffee shops on Allerton Road,” Samantha adds: “There are great schools in the

There are great schools in the vicinity and plenty of shops and amenities on your doorstep with great transport links to the city centre.

vicinity and plenty of shops and amenities on your doorstep with great transport links to the city centre. Mossley Hill is an increasingly popular location to live in.” Schools in South Liverpool are considered well established and sought after, and according to recent Nationwide Building Society research, education is often a big draw for home buyers. The figures show that 23% of UK parents of children aged five to 16 years would be prepared to pay between 2% and 10% extra on the price of their new home to be in the catchment area of a better school.

A hub of hidden gems Just like the historic and beautiful parks and the character-filled properties around South Liverpool, the range of bars, restaurants and shops make South Liverpool unique. From the likes of the lively Lark

Lane, with its bohemian and creative atmosphere, to the independent businesses in Woolton Village and the mix of up and coming and well established restaurants and bars around Allerton Road, the area has a thriving scene away from the city centre. Estate agent Reeds Rains has a Woolton branch and valuer Olivia Cook says: “Having been an established estate agents in South Liverpool for many years, it is evident that South Liverpool is becoming increasingly popular.” In addition to the area’s appeal for families, she adds: “Equally attracted to South Liverpool are young professionals and mature students who will find most of their time socialising on Allerton Road and Woolton Village, with its array of lively restaurants bars and pubs. “Living in South Liverpool you will always find something worthwhile and fun to do with your family or friends.”

I can’t afford to buy a house outright so I’m thinking of buying into a shared ownership scheme. If I want to buy more shares in the future, how will the cost of those shares be calculated and are there any restrictions?

Q

M. Wilton, L7 You can buy more shares any time after becoming a shared owner. This is known as staircasing, and the majority of leases allow staircasing up to 100% so you could own your home outright. However, there are some exceptions such as properties in rural areas which might have restrictions. Check with the vendor, prior to purchasing, on whether there are any restrictions on the home you are interested in. The cost of your new share will depend on how much your home is worth when you want to increase your percentage. If property prices have gone up, you’ll pay more than for your first share. If your home has dropped in value, your new share will be cheaper. The housing association will get the property valued and let you know the price of your new share. You’ll be responsible for paying costs associated with staircasing, including surveyors’ and solicitors’ fees.

A

SOLICITOR

We recently accepted an offer on our home although contracts for the sale haven’t been finalised yet. Due to a sudden change in circumstances though, we are no longer in a position to sell up and move house. Will I be able to just pull out of the sale at this stage, and what costs will I still have to pay despite not going through with it?

Q

Mrs Wright, L23 Under the current legislation, there is no legal commitment for either the buyer or the seller to proceed with a sale before the exchange of contracts has taken place. Therefore, if you have not exchanged contracts, or the contracts haven't been finalised yet, then you are able to withdraw from the sale of the property and from the market. However, you may have to pay some costs in relation to the estate agency services and legal services. Most estate agents and solicitors offer a no sale, no fee service, but I would advise that you check your terms and conditions to ensure there are no fees such as withdrawal fees, or aborted sale fees.

A

I notified my landlord of a loose banister in my rented house a week ago but he has still not fixed it. If I fix it myself can I claim compensation from the landlord?

Q

D. Moore, L16 There would be no automatic right to compensation from your landlord in this situation. If you speak to the landlord and he or she agrees that you can arrange to repair the banister yourself and that you will be reimbursed, or alternatively that you may deduct the repair costs from your rent, this is fine, but make sure that you have evidence of any agreement you come to, preferably in writing. If you deduct rent without permission, your landlord may be able to evict you for rent arrears. There are occasions when you can deduct rent in order to repair a property but there are strict procedures that need be followed and you should seek specialist advice prior to taking this course of action.

Following more than six months of success, Elaine Cunningham Interiors and Noname Kitchens by Capricorn are looking to expand their partnership. The two Liverpool businesses joined forces earlier this year when interior design specialist Elaine

Cunningham began to stock the kitchen brand, and a display kitchen was fitted in her 22-24 Chapel Street store. Noname sales director, Tony Reed says teaming up with Elaine Cunningham Interiors has provided the Birchall Street-based kitchen provider with a city centre

location for potential buyers to view its products and find out more. He adds: “It’s been going very well. We’ve had numerous leads coming through which have come to sales.” Looking to the future, Elaine Cunningham says: “It’s a

partnership which fits really well. We’re in talks about putting another display kitchen in the store with Noname Kitchens.” The second display kitchen is set to be a “contemporary” design that will work well in lots of homes.

Newcastle Road was once home to John Lennon

The terraced house of 9 Newcastle Road, Wavertree, was home to John Lennon from his birth in 1940 until the age of five, along with his parents and grandparents. He is also said to have later penned the song ‘One after 909’ there. The property will go under the hammer at the renowned Cavern Club on 29 October. Situated close to Penny Lane, the home comprises of a lounge, rear lounge, kitchen, three bedrooms and a family bathroom, as well as a

Stephen Giddins, regional sales director for the property’s selling agent Entwistle Green, says: “Although the property is in need of some modernisation it retains some of the original features that I’m sure a new owner would wish to keep. Taking into consideration the location, the property itself and the background we expect a lot of interest locally and internationally and would urge all interested parties to register their details as soon as possible to ensure they don’t miss out on this rare opportunity.” For further details call Entwistle Green on 0151 734 2220 or email Allerton@entwistlegreen.co.uk Your Move 63

Reeds Rains’ West Derby team

Reed Rains in West Derby has achieved record September sales as the housing market continues to recover. An improving housing market has led to more viewings and sales than at any other time in 2013, according to staff at the Almond’s Green branch. Leigh Morrissey, branch manager, says: “The housing market is finally showing signs of improving and September has been our busiest sales month for many years. The number of buyers being registered is on the up, the number of viewings being booked is on the up and the offers are rolling in.” Reeds Rains has now introduced a new ‘InView’ tool for sellers to increase the chances of their property standing out and extended the times many offices can be contacted to 9am to 9pm, seven days a week to cope with extra demand. The agent is also urging landlords and sellers to contact the branch, as Leigh adds: “We love letting houses as well as selling them, the only problem is we do not have enough properties to service the current level of waiting tenants. We urgently require more properties for let and sale to match our buyers’ and tenants’ expectations.” For more information contact Reeds Rains on 0151 226 5668.

Walton Flooring opens Wavertree store A Walton-based flooring specialist is celebrating after the successful opening of a second store in the region, which the owners say has been a big hit with customers. Walton Flooring Centre, a familyrun carpet, laminate, real wood and vinyl flooring specialist, has opened a new store on Wavertree High Street following the success of its flagship store on Queens Drive, Walton, two years ago. Owner James Harper says: “Following the success of the first store, many of our customers asked us to open another, which we did in September. The response has been better than we anticipated, which is great.” As with the original store, the new

premises will offer a carpet fitting service including free fitting, free underlay, free doorplates and free grippers or beading. It is the only company on Merseyside with a master installer for Quick Step laminate and has over 400 different styles of vinyl and Karndean as alternative options to carpet. James says the success of the store is due to transparent pricing. He says: “There are no hidden extras with our service. Everything is one really low budget price, and our fitters all work directly for us, so no charges are added on.” To celebrate the launch of the store Walton Flooring Centre is offering 20% off all flooring for anybody ordering for Christmas.

GeorGian restoration is a hit with new residents Lindsay Pellow and Gavin Thompson in their Georgian apartment

The new Walton Flooring Centre

Second stage of Help to Buy underway everal high street banks are now offering Help to Buy mortgages after the government brought forward the second stage of the scheme by three months.

S

The original character within Liverpool Housing Trust (LHT) and Atrium’s latest Georgian quarter development has proved a hit with new residents. Lindsay Pellow, 35, and her partner Gavin Thompson recently moved into an apartment within Liverpool’s Grade II listed 2 Canning Street site, which has been restored and renovated into five apartments for private sale. “The building is just stunning; it has been lovingly restored, with great attention to detail to retain its character,” says Lindsay, who has set up home in a third floor apartment which is accessible by climbing a dramatic elliptical

staircase that spirals full height into a domed lightwell that floods light over all floors. “My apartment has huge windows with fantastic views across the city. Many of the original features including huge sash windows encompass the regency splendour of the building.” Lindsay adds: “We chose to move to the area because of its prime location. Canning Street is within walking distance to everything you need - city centre shopping, a huge choice of restaurants, theatre, cinema and culture. “There is such a positive community spirit here – our neighbours are very proud of the area and rightly so.”

Initially set for a January launch, the £12bn scheme is now available through Natwest, RBS, Virgin Money, Halifax and Bank of Scotland. The second stage of Help to Buy allows mortgages up to 95% of the property’s value to be taken out for new build and second-hand homes up to the value of £600,000, with a deposit of only 5% needed. Under the scheme the government will guarantee up to 15% of the property’s value. Unlike the first part of the scheme, which was restricted to new build houses and offered a 20% government loan, which is interest-free for five years, lenders will charge interest rates on the scheme. On announcing the launch, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, says: “Too many people are still being denied the dream of owning their own home, which is why we have brought forward the launch of this scheme, so as of today borrowers can start applying for a mortgage with a 5% deposit.” The government will begin to underwrite the risk for lenders from January but expects any applications take a few months to process. However, any completions before January will be honoured by the scheme. Your Move 65

Cathy Holt, auction manageress at Sutton Kersh, says: “This is a magnificent property in a sought after area which should appeal to developers.

“The fact that planning permission is already in place is a definite bonus, which I am sure will be reflected in the interest generated.” A six-bedroom former bed and breakfast in New Brighton will also be up for auction along with over 50 vacant Merseyside houses priced from £20,000 and parcels of land in West Yorkshire. The auction takes place at 12 noon at the Marriott Hotel in Liverpool. Meanwhile, Sutton Kersh is also inviting instructions for its final auction of the year on 12 December, for which the catalogue closes on 19 November. Visit www.sutton kersh.co.uk/auctions-property

STAFF GET SOAKED IN THE STOCKS FOR CHARITY Alan Bevan and Sue Taylor addressed the Property Group

property experts speak at professional liverpool event Members of the Property Group at Professional Liverpool were given an up-to-date review of the property market during their latest network event. Alan Bevan, managing director of City Residential, and Sue Taylor, from Keppie Massie Residential, addressed the group during a meeting at the city’s Cotton Exchange with a special presentation on activity and prospects for the market both locally and nationally. Sue, who has had a long-running career in the property industry and has been an associate director of Keppie Massie Residential Ltd for five years, oversees the growth of the company’s branch with high net worth clients and an expanding residential sales and management portfolio. Meanwhile Alan, whose main focuses are company strategy, business development, consultancy and asset management, brought expertise on new build development, ground rents and serviced apartments to the event. Those who attended also enjoyed an informal lunch and the chance to take part in a question and answer session after the presentation.

R

eeds Rains staff made a splash as they raised cash for charity at the City Living office.

Branch manager Ian Taylor spent time in the stocks getting soaked, along with colleague Darren Carter, in a light hearted effort to boost funds for the Estate Agency Foundation, which helps to eliminate the causes of homelessness throughout the UK. In total, £150 was raised for the cause during the successful event, as members of

the public threw soggy sponges at the duo in return for donations. Following the fundraiser, Ian says: “A friend mentioned they had some stocks we could use and charge people to soak us. Luckily, I was able to persuade my colleague Darren Carter to join in. “We had a great time, when we eventually got over the shock of getting soaked. I will never forget the bus driver who paid £5 for a whole bucket to be thrown over me!”

P

The housing trust was joined by estate agent Reeds Rains City Living to host a special open day event at the new show home on the site, and provided advice for those looking to step onto the property ladder. As well as an opportunity to look around the new build offering at Claremont Gardens, financial

advisors were on hand at the event to offer free appointments and visitors found out more about how they could own a new property from £31,750. The price would involve buying a 25% share plus paying monthly rent through the trust’s scheme. Along with property information and advice, lucky visitor Carl Parry also took away a bottle of champagne from the event, as those who registered were entered in to a draw.

According to research by the Post Office, the average first time buyer is in their home for 14 years before moving on to their second property. As buyers save for their second home, they often decide to refresh tired-looking design and décor in their existing home. If you’re looking to give your home a new lease of life there are things you can do.

How to refresH your Home wHat rooms sHoulD i concentrate on? Rooms that see plenty of use but can often look dated and drab, particularly when it comes to the bathroom and the kitchen. However, this can be an expensive process. Consumer group Which? says the average new bathroom costs around £3,000 and a revamped kitchen can see you spend £8,000 on average. The Kitchen Bathroom Bedroom Specialists Association (KBSA), which is made up of 300 retailers, says focusing on the kitchen could be the key to giving your home a new lease of life. According to the KBSA: “Research amongst members shows that kitchens are getting larger and remain the heart of the home, as it is more and more becoming a ‘living space’ and not just a cooking area. It is now a place to socialise and relax as well as to eat and cook. “KBSA advises that how much you spend on your new kitchen or bathroom matches the price bracket of your house and research carefully to ensure quality of product, installation and after sales service.”

wHat else can be refresHeD? A lick of paint is the easiest way to freshen up a living room or communal area. If you are planning on adding some new colour to

the house it is important to consider an over-riding theme so that there is continuity between rooms. However, that is not to say different colours cannot be used for different rooms. Elaine Cunningham, owner of Elaine Cunningham Interiors, says: “Choose light, soft colours for your walls to add a warmth and interest to the room without making it feel closed in. Pick one or two statement pieces such as an over sized table lamp or feature mirror. “Improving the lighting in your home can give it a more open, airy feel. Use spotlights to emphasise key features or refresh lights with a new lampshade or some new free-standing lamps.”

How can i make tHe best use of space? The long wait for a second home even when you have outgrown your current property makes it important to make the best use of the space you have. It is equally important for downsizers, who will often find furniture and personal belongings no longer fit in the new space. According to Elaine, making the most of your space is all about design. She says: “Don't forget about the walls and the space they offer, don't let the vertical space go to waste. Using it is a practical and good way for displaying items such as artwork and accessories. It also draws the eye up making the room feel more spacious.”

If you weren’t doing property what would you be doing? If I wasn’t doing this job I’d probably like to get into property investment. If it was nothing to do with property I’d like to remain in sales – it would probably be car sales or something like that. What are you going to do straight after this interview? I’ll be calling somebody about a property and hopefully it’ll lead to a sale!

I have just bought my first house, but we have not yet moved in as we’re getting a few jobs done first. Looking forward to moving in!

NEW DIRECTION Multi-talented Matthew Xia has appeared in a film alongside Ray Winstone, performed as a DJ on Radio One and at the Paralympics opening ceremony, and won the coveted Genesis Young Director Award – all before he was 30. He is now director in residence at the Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse as part of the Regional Theatre Young Director Scheme and took time out from his Liverpool directorial debut, Scrappers, to chat to Your Move.

INTERVIEW BY STEPHEN HURRELL

Why did you choose to direct Scrappers? The first time I read it I’d only been in Liverpool for two weeks and this play came through to me. I was completely taken by it. He (writer Daniel Matthew) has such a fantastic grasp of all the characters and the situation that has befallen them. It’s his debut play and it feels like he has been writing for years. It’s just great to see a young, new, exciting talent such as Daniel get a chance. What really attracted me to it other than the integrity of the piece and the quality of the writing were the themes. I’m really interested in telling stories that haven’t been told or haven’t been written before and giving a voice to the voiceless. It’s about a scrap yard at the end of the world, which is being completely redeveloped, and it’s about this man just trying to hold on to his business along with a very loyal group of workers. 84 Your Move

What was it about this play that caught your attention? It’s just a fantastic blue-collar working story. I’m a working-class boy and I don’t think there are enough authentic working class stories told. When they are they can often be quite voyeuristic, inviting people from other walks of life to come and peer in through the window and see what is happening to people who are struggling. I’m aware in the last 60 years there’s been a huge shift towards working class stories but this feels really honest. Are you working on any other plays? I have just finished directing ‘Sizwe Banzi is Dead’ at the Young Vic Theatre in London. It’s an apartheid era piece, which was quite timely given Nelson Mandela’s illness and it’s the 40th anniversary since the first performance of the play in the country so I think it is the right time. I think forgetting is not always a good idea so now is the time to remind people what happened, how it happened and why it happened and how absurd it was for people who lived underneath that regime.

You’ve worked in music and films in the past. Why did you decide to go into theatre? Between the ages of 11 and 16 I did acting. I did a film called Tube Tales, which featured Bob Hoskins and Ray Winstone, and it was fantastic. At the same time my music career was picking up. I had started DJing at 15 and did a lot of touring, but it felt like I had been doing it for half my life once my BBC contract was up at the age of 26. Then somebody asked me to musically direct a hip hop show and also co-direct it. I managed to get myself an agent off the back of that and through discussions I ended up on the Genesis Directors Network. Are you enjoying working in Liverpool? It’s been fantastic for me and I love Liverpool. There’s a perceived image outside that it’s got its defences up having been the victim of various campaigns and misfortunes in the past. And then you get here and people are so warm and there’s a real sense of community. There’s so much art, culture and a student scene I’ve recently discovered. What was good for me is


TALENT

my girlfriend is from here and my old drama teacher is here. So coming here and knowing there was already a network to plug in to made it easier. What was it like performing at the Paralympics opening ceremony? Jenny Sealey, who was artistic director of the Paralympics opening ceremony, really likes what I do as an artist and I absolutely adore everything she does for disability arts in the UK. She called and said it was all very top secret but the Olympic Committee would like to meet me to discuss a project. I thought it could only be one project; the Olympics! I went and had a meeting. It was so clandestine and I couldn’t talk about anything discussed. To be in that stadium, on my home turf, on my 30th birthday, doing that – I cannot describe it. I got a tiny snippet of how Jay Z might feel for just two hours. Then it was all over, but it was magical. Hanging out in the dressing room with Sir Ian McKellen and Stephen Hawking was just out of this world. Jenny’s message, the theme of enlightenment, was fantastic and to have that many brilliant artists, disabled and able-bodied, to help enlighten the audience to some fantastic work in this country was great.

“I’m a working-class boy and I don’t think there are enough authentic working class stories told.”

What’s next for you? To be a young director and have two plays on in two of the most exciting venues in the country is so exciting for me right now. For me I’ve always enjoyed doing it all. I love theatre and I love music and I don’t think I’ll ever want to stop doing them. I’m hugely excited about the opening of the new Everyman next year so I’m going to have to hang around for that. Then I’ll see what happens but I have no plans really. I don’t think I’ve got space in my head for any more – it’ll explode if I think beyond October. Your Move 85

THE BEATLES CONQUER AMERICA AGAIN

Liverpool inspired Bloomingdale’s window display

Famous American store Bloomingdale’s has chosen Liverpool as the backdrop to its autumn ‘Strictly British’ clothing collection Inspired by The Beatles, store representatives visited Liverpool for a photo shoot in the city centre and Penny Lane, which was immortalised in one of the Fab Four’s songs. The images are being showcased in window displays and Bloomingdale’s catalogues after Liverpool Vision and Liverpool Film Office

organised the shoot for the US brand. Pam Wilsher, head of visitor economy development at the city region’s Tourist Board, says: “There’s only one place in the world where this could happen – and it’s Liverpool. “As well as a strong presence in stores, there’s also a huge social media campaign. Together these initiatives give Liverpool and The Beatles’ legacy in the city massive profile.” Liverpool will also be among four British holiday destinations being offered to

Bloomingdale’s shoppers as part of a tie-in with VisitBritain, the national marketing board for tourism. Meanwhile, executives from US tour operator CIE Tours International will increase the number of tours to the city next year after describing it as a ‘gem’ on a recent visit. According to Marketing Liverpool, visitors were particularly impressed with The Beatles attractions in the city.

SOMERSET OF LOVE (RIGHT) John Lewis, South John Street

REFINED REBELLION

New in at John Lewis is recent MBE awardee Alice Temperley’s Somerset range, just in time for AW2013. The collection is varied, from 1920s beaded dresses to swallow print sheer shirts, but this suit jacket (£199) and matching skirt (£99) are an elegant nod to the military trend that will take hold once again in the coming months.

POTTERY PAST TIMES

(ABOVE) Dr Martens, New Manestys Lane It’s very easy to conjure up a clear image of a shoe from Dr Martens, so iconic is the brand. Our current favourites are these brogues, inspired by their Original range. Whilst not overwhelmingly emblematic of the brand, these gorgeous leather shoes (£155) put a refined and sharp spin on the image, whilst being thankfully suitable for the increasingly wet weather.

(BELOW)

Bluecoat Display Centre, The Bluecoat, College Lane The Bluecoat Display Centre is home to an enviable assortment of craft, both local and international. Providing detailed artist descriptions, the shop is a veritable who’s who of significant talent currently at home in Liverpool. Simon Shaw’s electric pottery collection, a glorious combination of intense colour and simple shapes, is not only locally made and entirely unique, it’s fairly priced too (£20-£75).

STYLE TO SMILE ABOUT (ABOVE) Internacionale, South John Street Supermodel and ‘it girl’ Cara Delavigne has seemingly single-handedly brought back the graphic print jumper with gusto. Luckily, Internacionale are doing an eye-catching Cheshire cat (£14.99) that will satisfy the stylesavvy yearnings of any teen, keeping them toasty-warm and trendy without breaking their (or indeed their parents’) bank.

EXPRESS LUNCH Whether you’re nipping out from work to grab a bite to eat or searching for a filling lunch with friends, the options available to you can be quite daunting. However, our handy guide to the best places to spend your lunch break could help to narrow down the field and provide you with a tasty, convenient meal.

LUCHA LIBRE 96 Wood Street A hidden gem inside an understated brick building, Lucha Libre delivers authentic Mexican lunch bites, street food and taco trays, and sharers with a spicy twist. The delicious food is cooked slowly to perfection and fresh take-away options are perfect for the lunch diner in a rush. Be sure to head back later for a leisurely cocktail in the basement bar, Maya, and a sumptuous evening meal of tasty main courses.

BROWNS BAR & BRASSERIE 43a Paradise Street, Liverpool, L1

OHMEOHMY West Africa House, Water Street This waterfront eatery is located in the 1950s opulence of West Africa House, a popular wedding venue. Owned by the team behind Bold Street’s LEAF and open 9am-5pm Monday to Friday, OhMeOhMy has more of a restaurant feel with breakfast, sandwich and mains options offering plenty of choice. A wide selection of teas, coffees and alcoholic drinks are also available.

MELLO MELLO 40-42 Slater Street A vegetarian restaurant, bar and venue space, community interest company Mello Mello offers art, culture, music and excellent lunch options all under one roof. Healthy, handmade snacks to eat in or take out in compostable packaging include speciality sandwiches and salads, curry of the day or a selection of homemade desserts, available in dairy and gluten-free options.

Browns Bar & Brasserie is the newest addition to the continental-style restaurants lining Liverpool ONE’s shopping streets and it has set itself up as a trendy place to enjoy a meal or one of its many cocktails while watching the world go by. There is a choice of outdoor seating to enjoy the last of the milder weather or two floors of lovingly decorated interior space kitted out with wooden fittings, leather seats and a mix of vintage clocks and prints of Liverpool landmarks. For a chain with over 20 restaurants it has a local feel and the thoughtful design makes it feel less like an identikit diner and more of a unique proposition. Arriving at the restaurant at 6pm the atmosphere was relaxed with a mix of patrons, ranging from families coming in from a day of shopping and visitors nipping in for a cocktail treat after work. Taking our seats on the first floor to get a view of Liverpool ONE,

my dinner date and I were welcomed by an attentive waiter whose knowledge of the menu and enthusiasm for the food and drinks was evident throughout our visit. We were convinced to try a cocktail and the ‘Liverpool Lime Light’, a combination of coconut and strawberry liquor and champagne, was great value at £5 and wonderfully refreshing without being overpowering. My starter was the asparagus and prosciutto with egg and lemon and chervil hollandaise (£6.50). The portion was small but beautifully cooked. My companion chose the feuillete of mushrooms (£6.50), which was a medley of mushrooms in a rich cream source. A tasty puff pastry topping and a drizzle of truffle oil gave it a crispy, earthy flavour. All of the food was delivered quickly and with a smile but it would have been worth waiting for; the stilton, sweet potato and squash filo parcel (£10.50)

REVIEW BY STEPHEN HURRELL

was excellent and grilled pear gave it a sweet, tangy taste. The 21-day aged West Country Rib Eye Steak (£19) comes complete with chunky chips and a choice of sauces. The meat was succulent and tender and was cooked exactly as ordered. After the filling main meals we opted for the strawberry blondie with ice cream (£6). Light and sweet, the dessert was well presented and enticing enough to make some extra room for. Browns is a bar where it is easy to lose track of time and linger over the food and drinks and we finished the evening with a strawberry daiquiri cocktail, which packed a punch but still delivered plenty of flavour. Browns is a sophisticated bar and brasserie with an extensive menu and some brilliant cocktails. However, the incredible level of service, attention to detail and wonderful food are what sets it apart from many of the other Liverpool ONE eateries. Your Move 93
