A top chef has brought his ‘5 star’ Sunday roasts to South Liverpool and they’ve been going down a storm! Darryn Jones shot to fame for his ‘unbelievable” culinary creations at 21st Amendment in Hoylake, featuring in local and international press, and has now taken over the kitchen at Liverpool’s 21st Amendment, located just off Penny Lane.
The South African developed a formidable reputation at the Wirral venue, leading to countless 5 star reviews and bookings well in advance. Darryn’s creative small plates and sensational Sunday roasts led to widespread praise and he is fast developing the same kind of reputation at the sister venue on Church Road in Liverpool — with a 5 star food hygiene rating also recently received.
Darryn’s new kitchen offering at 21st Amendment in South Liverpool consists of a refined small plates and mains menu Weds — Sat. There are great offers such as £10 mains on Wednesdays, 3 small plates for £16 on Thursdays, 4 small plates on a sharing board for £20 on Fridays and 2 for £10 small plates on Saturdays. Then of course there’s the stunning Sunday roasts!
Darryn’s Sunday roasts at 21st Amendment have been going down a storm! To start, there’s Korean fried chicken, leek and cheddar croquettes or tomato, mozzarella and basil caprese salad and then a delightful offering of chicken, lamb or nut roast for the main. To finish, there’s either classic chocolate brownie, Autumn Berry cheesecake or apple and blueberry crumble with burnt oat crumb.
Darryn said: “I’m thoroughly proud to have been given the chance to take over the kitchen here. I’ve been working very hard over the years, working my way up from dishwasher, and it’s an honour to be recognised and given this opportunity. As for the media coverage I got, that was pretty wild haha!”
Darryn’s creations in Hoylake caused that much of a stir, he was featured by The Wirral Globe, The Liverpool Echo, The Chester Standard, Liverpool Community Radio and even international press. After a tough life in South Africa, Darryn settled in the UK and has since excelled as a chef — now heading the kitchen at one of South Liverpool’s coolest hangouts.
Darryn said: “It’s always been my dream to head a kitchen and I’m excited about getting 21st Amendment on Penny Lane back on the map as a quality dining venue. It’s got a great reputation as a cool speakeasy bar with live music and live sport and I’m looking forward to taking it to the next level by offering excellent food. So far the feedback has been amazing!”
The venue also has an upstairs private dining space that Darryn has been using to host ideal private parties, dining events and tailored evenings. The space is free to hire and Darryn can offer his standard menu or a tailored buffet style set up for a special occasion — anyone interested in free private dining hire can message via Facebook or Instagram to enquire.
Such is the quality of his cuisine, bookings for the festive season have been flying in too. Served throughout December, 21st Amendment is offering 2 courses for £19 or 2 courses for £24 — featuring mains such as turkey, pork belly and sea bass. The private dining space is proving to be a popular choice for special festive dining celebrations.
Darryn summarised: “There are so many great places to dine in South Liverpool — from Lark Lane to Smithdown Road to Allerton Road. There are lots of options for people here but competition is good and it will push me even harder to achieve the same reputation as I had in Hoylake. People are loving it so far so the early signs are great!”
Darryn Jones has taken over the kitchen at 21st Amendment on Penny Lane, offering small plates and mains Weds-Sat and ‘5 star’ Sunday roasts. The South African chef has received countless 5 star reviews and has been featured by various media outlets for his culinary creations.
