Steven Gerrard becomes co-owner of his favourite restaurant

Steven Gerrard is a huge fan of fine dining, and fell so madly in love with his favourite Merseyside eatery that he had to buy it.

Now the Liverpool captain plans to turn The Warehouse Brasserie in Southport into one of the north west's flashest food venues.

The 29-year-old midfielder lists the restaurant, which has a Michelin Bib Gourmand rating, as his favourite restaurant, and said he is delighted to be involved as co-owner.

Gerrard, who will be working alongside renowned hotelier Paul Adams, said: "Whenever I've been asked about my favourite restaurant over the years, I've always said The Warehouse.

"I've been eating there for years because I love the food and the atmosphere, so it’s genuinely exciting to become its co-owner with Paul."

He added: "I certainly don’t want to just be the 'celebrity' face of the restaurant.

"This is not a theme bar, it’s about great food, great surroundings and making it a place that people really want to come back to.

"This is my first venture in the restaurant trade but I think it’s important to also say that my priorities are, and always will be, on the football pitch."

The venue, fully refurbished and with its inspiration taken from the new wave of 'hipster bars' popular in New York’s Tribeca district, is due to open at the end of April as The Warehouse Kitchen & Bar.
