About Us


Since the big green door first opened on 2nd September 2014, we have grown in geographical footprint, seen many menu changes from Chef, expanded the team, and even received some awards. However none of this detracts from the experience that we strive to give to each of our guests, on each of their visits.

Located on Sugnall Street in Liverpool’s Georgian Quarter, you can find us based inside the stunning lantern room of the Victorian 1888 ‘Home for Destitute Children’ building, making for a bright and naturally lit dining space.

Boasting 48 red chairs in the main dining room, as well as a Champagne cellar bar with Afternoon Tea service and a stunning private wine tasting space. With recent refurbishment we have also added our new private hire space, ‘The Moriarty Room’, named after Chef Askew’s late mother, in recognition of their shared love of Sherlock Holmes and the legendary hospitality she passed on to her son.


At The Art School, we now have a fairly large family of eccentric geniuses on hand to care for all four of our dining spaces. Upstairs & down, you will find our apron wielding ‘merchant’s of happiness’, while the back of house brigade persist in their pursuit of quality and consistency.
