The perfect venue for a catch up with good friends, The Bar at Tom’s Late Lounge offers plenty of tantalising bites that’ll get conversation going while the drinks are flowing.
Opening its doors in early 2004, Tom at 101 has established itself as the place to be in Warrington. Proudly owned and run by Tom Rogers and his sons, the establishment contains both a fresh restaurant and a stylish bar, which features live music every Thursday.
Ideal for quelling cravings whilst enjoying a few drinks are the delectable nibbles, which make for great finger foods that never stops the discussion in the way a full meal can; unless the new topic being talked about is how delicious the bites are. Some of the superb snacks include the exquisite speciality olives, available stuffed with piri piri, coated with rosemary and garlic or adorned with nocellara and sea salt, the spicy pork crackling and the Seriously Big Potato Slabs, both paired with a tasty dip.
Should “one or two drinks” turn into a party, Tom’s sharing boards are available to state those ravenous cravings. Truly best when contrasting each other, it is recommended diners pick at least two, especially given the tastecard 2-4-1 discount gets a mountain’s worth of bites for the price of a mole hill’s worth of nibbles.
The bountiful boards comes in three varieties; BBQ, seafood and antipasto. Definitely suited for carnivorous palates, the BBQ sharing board features chilli jam chicken wings, baby back ribs and Tom’s special honey sausages. Also meat orientated, albeit not as hot, is the antipasto board, which contains H. greaves chorizo, pastrami and brezola. Seafaring diners, particularly liberal vegetarians, will adore the seafood board that is bursting with fresh king prawns, honey home cured salmon and ‘chippy fish’. Strict vegetarians aren’t banished from the feast though, as each sharing board has plenty of safe snacks like house pickles as well as aliolli-artisan and blue cheese and chutney artisan breads.
An irresistible hang out spot, Tom’s Late Lounge is best suited for an informal catch up that only requires nibbles. Those seeking something more substantial should check out the Tom at 101 restaurant that’s also available to book with the tastecard discount.
