New restaurant a dream come true.

AN OLD Knotty Ash pub has been given a new lease of life as a French rotisserie restaurant.
The former pub was derelict before local entrepreneur Lee Keating ,46, decided to open the family-run restaurant.
And The Rotisserie Hub, is already proving to be popular.
Lee said: "The idea came about because when I worked in Geneva, there was a small market town with one stall, which caught my attention in particular.
"It was a small van, which sold rotisserie chickens and the queue was halfway around the market every Sunday. They also sold roast potatoes, which were dripping in all those rotisserie chicken juices, roasted greens and gravy to go.
"Since that day 10 years ago I've had this idea stuck in my head of starting something very similar."
The family from Huyton decided to set up their dream in the former Knotty Ash pub so that local people didn't have to travel into the city centre for a quality meal.
Lee added: "We prefered to pick somewhere central or closer to home because when me and the missus would go out for something to eat we always had to travel by taxi and it would add PS30 or PS40 on top of the meal."
The Rotisserie Hub prides itself on producing good value food using fresh produce.
The menu consists of fresh sandwiches, salads and side for lunch and a French inspired a la carte menu in the evening alongside the signature rotisserie menu and a kids menu. The a la carte menu includes boeuf a la bourguignonne, steak au poivre and sole meuniere.
Rotisserie customers can choose between a whole, half or quarter white or brown meat or wings, seasoned and marinated, with house sauces, fresh vegetables, potatoes and various other sides.
Jayde Harrison left a five-star review online and said: "Absolutely gorgeous. Looks fantastic inside, staff were very welcoming."
Another reviewer said: "What a lovely family-run independent restaurant. Food was fab, service was great. We were made to feel really welcome and every course was superb."
The Rotisserie Hub is open every day, 11am to 10pm, with the lunch menu served from 11am to 3pm and the a la carte and rotisserie from 5pm onwards.
There is 10% discount to all NHS staff, and a Beat the Clock offer 6-7pm when customers can pick from the Beat the Clock menu and get their meal for the price of the time when they arrive. For example, if customers get there at 6.30pm they pay PS6.30.
