The Bastion Bar & Restaurant: Our Chef’s Must-Try Dish

If you’re yet to visit The Bastion Bar and Restaurant, then look no further. We have a recommendation straight from the kitchen and we know you’ll want to give it a try!

Our very own Matt Cox, executive chef at the Bastion spoke to Liverpool Echo this week, sharing his favourite dish from The Bastion menu.

The Bastion: Chef’s Recommendation

Situated within Liverpool’s luxury Shankly Hotel, The Bastion Bar & Restaurant offers a delicious range of fresh, hearty dishes served in style and prepared by our talented chefs back in the kitchen.

Whilst the Bastion serves up a wide variety of dishes, Matt Cox’s favourite is the Bastion’s Slow Braised Ox Cheeks which are enjoyed with Caramelised Shallot Mash, Baby Beets and Creamed and Crispy Carrots.

Matt told the Echo:

“The braised ox cheek dish is my favourite on the Bastion’s A La Carte menu. It reminds me of hearty, home cooked, simply delicious food and takes me right back to my childhood.”
