From Our Editors

Handy to both Princes Dock and the city centre, The Racquet Club Hotel started life back in 1857 as a Venetian palazzo. The historic Victorian building served the purposes of a private gentleman’s club from 1877, its original racquet courts being converted to squash courts in 1928, hence the name. Hospitality was provided for officers of the Royal Navy at the venue during World War II, before the building met its unfortunate and total destruction during the Toxteth riots in July of ‘81. Awarded a substantial compensation package under the Riot Damages Act, the committee were able to begin reconstruction of the club, and reopen in May of 1985. Today the hotel is a small and family-run affair with just eight, individually decorated rooms. A coveted Liverpool wedding venue, the hotel is capable of hosting over 200 guests with various options to suit the happy couple. The hotel’s Ziba Restaurant was established in 1997 and moved on-site during a refrubishment in 2003. Bordered by large arched windows, the restaurant boasts an airy feel and an adjacent bar, with the kitchen putting their own creative spin on modern English dishes.

Dined there last year and thought it was great so went back, but this time wasn't much. The starter was ok but not quite what l was expecting and the main was only OK the potato .was cold with 2 small pieces of chicken and a sauce ( no veg). To make matters worse the table wobbled every time one of us tried cutting something. Out of the 5 of us that dined only one would go back.

Not used the voucher yet as meal was cancelled due to extreme problems in the kitchen, however, we were informed of the problem at 08.50am in the morning by a very nice receptionist who apologised profusely for the cancellation and will be sending us a racquet club voucher. Although we have not dined there yet we have been impressed with the professionalism expressed to us.
