I had the vegan roast, and I could make a far better one at home for half the price. The nut roast was dry and mealy, the roast potatoes were hard and dry and the parsnips verging on uncooked. The only good thing was the other veg which was cooked just right (not mushy but cooked throuvh) Not sure why it was so bad, expected alot better from the Viking. Although I appreciate that vegan food has to be cooked differently to meat, I don't struggle at home to create really good roast potatoes and nut roast is pretty standard as a veggie dish... My boyfriend had the vegan pizza which was delicious, just a bit greasy. And I have eaten here before when you did a vegan curry and that was lovely too- so was a real shame, wouldn't come for a roast again.

Very Friendly staff however when our waiter finished his shift, he wasn’t replaced and so our service went downhill, couldn’t fault anything else.

Fantastic Sunday roast. The chicken was really full of flavour and the veg perfectly cooked. Home made gravy too - no Bisto here - hurrah!!

Drink was on the expensive side . Atmosphere was good , although the music was too loud. At times could not hear ourselves talk . Slightly worse when 'bingo' started .Noticed there was a quieter area , but not many customers in there . Food was very good , but one of the party ordered a double burger , which only came as the burger and chips , no salad or coleslaw etc . Very nice premises and layout

Having been a very regular customer at the Viking since it opened, I was incredibly disappointed with the fact that my 15 year old daughter and her eight friends were not allowed to stay in the restaurant on Friday evening because suddenly they were told they needed to be accompanied by an adult. They had booked a table the week before, been shown to the table and given menus before being informed of this suddenly random decision. In July and the previous November, the same group of well-behaved young ladies had all come for dinner and been served without a single problem. Not only was no care of duty shown to the girls to check they could make alternative arrangements, they were spoken to very brusquely with rudeness. Obviously, I am very frustrated and angry about their treatment on Friday evening and can categorically say none of the girls or their families will ever support the Viking again. I refuse to give my custom or support as a local west Kirby resident to an establishment that can treat their loyal and well-behaved customers with such disregard. I was also ensure that I retell this incident to anyone thinking of booking a meal at the restaurant.

I took my daughter for brunch on her 30th birthday. She was given a complimentary bucks fizz which was a lovely gesture. I will certainly return because the main menu looks delicious!

It was very very hot inside and all the windows were steamed up. We asked could the windows be opened but it appears they cannot. Did slightly spoil our dinner as it was too hot to want to eat really although the food was sensational

Lovely Sunday Lunch. Sitting close to the back door into the garden area though. When propped open by young children or their parents causes a horrible draft. Not nice for my 90 year old mum. People can be so inconsiderate cant they ! Next time I will book a table up by your kitchen area.

Went for Sunday Roast with the family and had a great meal - food was all really well seasoned and cooked (though the veg was a little under-done for one or two people's tastes) and the service was friendly and prompt. A little pricey, especially given the area, but it is worth it for a good experience.

Great food and quick service! Had to ask for dessert menu and would of been nice to lay one bill at the end rather than at the bar. But all round enjoyed, great little area with the dog and staff loved the dogs too. Will be back

Desserts and coffee are only ok. Main burger and steak meals could do with some coleslaw/ another item.

Waited almost an hour for breakfast and it was not busy. Also feel breakfast size has been cut. Normally enjoy a Viking brekkie but very disappointing yesterday. ☹️

Had the lamb burger, well presented, nice toppings but the burger very over cooked tough and tasted like a frozen packet burger. Steak was delicious and chicken kebab lovely too

We were a party of twelve and the service and food was excellent and made for a very pleasant evening. The atmosphere was extremely convivial and the staff were attentive and efficient. A great night.
