Overall an excellent experience. The venue is a little different, very big warehouse with long tables. The service was great, very friendly and attentive throughout. The roast dinner portions were generous (shared veg between the group but no need to fight over the last roast potato) The veggie roast was delicious, as was the veg gravy that came in its separate jug. Also excellent Yorkshires, some of the best I have tasted. Wine was also great. We didn't try starters or desserts. Would definitely eat here again.

Camp & Furnace may not be fancy but what it lacks in that respect it makes up for in excellent food & a quirky no frills atmosphere in a communal dinning hall in a warehouse. Sunday lunch at its best. Booking recommended as this is a hidden gem in Liverpool & very popular. Doggy bags available for those the quantity defeats. Great value for money x

We visited Camp and Furnace to celebrate my partners Birthday. We received a very warm welcome and were seated quite quickly. The service was really efficient considering it was Mothers Day !!! The only slight disappointment was the temperature of the food. The dining area is situated in what is effectively a large warehouse so I accept that the food could go cold quickly. Bearing this in mind I do think that the establishment should take this into consideration when sending the food out , it does need to be hot. Having said that the food was delicious and we had a really nice experience . We would go back but we would request that the food be hot. Don't let this put you off just be aware !!

We are a family of 6 adults and we all thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. Food was excellent and plentiful and service was efficient and staff friendly.

Definitely a return visit for us.

Great place if you like great food but don't mind the rough and ready delivery of serving yourself and carving the joint although there are other food choices if you'd prefer.

The Sunday lunch is very good. However we did have to make our reservation about a month in advance. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The servers immediately noticed when we were finished with our plates and brought everything quickly. The music was a little loud -- my boyfriend and I sat on the same side of the table so we could hear each other speak without straining.

Right start off your sat on a bench in a old factory that's it... If it's cold outside you may need to leave your coat on. But this venue is just great always a great feel. The Sunday lunch main is to die for we had the lamb shanks that come with lovely big Yorkshire puds roast potatoes like your nan used to do and a selection of tasty fresh veg then a jug of gravy. The pudding we had the sticky toffee pudding for 4 to share but it could feed more they give you that much!!! Yes the building is basic but everything else is just great love it !!!!

Came here for drinks recently and enjoyed the place. I was told the roast dinners were amazing so took the family. Chicken was ok however all veg was hard and uncooked, potatoes soft but not browned, parsnips were hard and not roasted. The room was big and cold and food wise Everything got cold really quickly and gravy was bland. I had high expectations but was disappointed. They would really benefit testing the food before sending it out

Fantastic Sunday Roast. Great quality food and reasonably priced for the amount. I just don't find it has any of the ambiance I'd want from a Sunday lunch. Large groups of people trying to sit on the long benches makes it difficult to move, gives no privacy from other surrounding groups and the environment is not at all relaxing. The music was far too loud and the lights seemed to dim extremely low throughout the day. The table was also sticky from whoever had eaten there before. Service was ok, although we did go to bar to get our own drinks during the meal rather than wait. Would eat here again as the quality of the food was great, but I'll most definitely not be making a long visit of it. Such a shame. I love camp and furnace but it tries almost too hard to be all things to all people.

2 words can describe our experience, AWFUL & DISAPPOINTING, we had a table booked for 3.30pm on Sunday the 1st of November, we were sat down at our table a few minutes before that time. Our server Chris, was very friendly and seemed eager to please but didn't know the guest beers that were available but recommended a beer all the same. 30 minutes after we had placed our food order, Chris returned to advise that one of the staters was not available. which was a bit of a surprise that it took half an hour to find this out!, new starters were ordered and arrived about 10 minutes later, one starter was ok the other (mushrooms - to replace the starter not available) was bland and greasy. On collecting the starter plates our server advised he would let the Kitchen know we were ready for our second course to try and avoid another wait..........this was at quarter past 4pm..........by qtr to 5 we were contemplating just paying for our starters and beers and leaving, however the main plates then arrived one was piping hot, one was cold, Lamb Shank, roast beef, yorkshires and all the trimmings arrived at 10 to 5, Chis apologised on the wait and off he popped. veggies and gravy dished out, Yessss!! roast dinner here we come!!......................COLD COLD COLD - not even luke warm at best. that was the straw that broke the games back. we called Chris over asked for the bill for starters and beers. On heading the Maitre'D station we spoke the the duty manager ( a young Irish lady with blonde hair) whose first words were so you didn't like any of the food so you don't want to pay? Eye Roll, after relaying the whole disappointing rigmarole she thanked us for the feedback and that she would pass the comments on to the kitchen, beers paid for off we went to try and sort lunch somewhere else. We had heard such great things about Camp & Furnace but turned out to be a great big let down, Kitchen and front of house need a rocket up them, the place was not massively busy either. :-(

Had a great Sunday lunch. Long tables shared with other diners make give the place a friendly feel. Sunday roast comes out on big sharing platters so it's good for group bookings. Service was really good, staff we're friendly. It's a good place for people with children.

The quality of food and service is very good. Sadly the food portions are inadequate, limited vegetables, children running around our table screaming and generally being left alone by parents.

I've been to the Friday food slam many times and love the laid back atmosphere here, but this was the first time for Sunday lunch.
Four of us had the chicken which comes as a whole bird you carve your self, and four had the roast beef which comes carved. Roast potatoes and veg come as a sharing platter. The food was very tasty and well cooked, and I'm still musing over how they manage to get so much taste into a whole roast chicken - it was very good. Cheap too at £40 for 4.
The service was really good and our waitress made sure the drinks flowed.
Highly recommended , especially for a large group who can easily sit together on the long tables.

We had a great family lunch at the camp and furnace - grandparents were visiting, we had the children (5 and 2 Y O) with us and the place was well set up for this kind of dining. We ate in the bar area. Sunday papers were provided and the kids were able to amuse themselves in the main dining hall, so everyone was well entertained! The menu was very light on detail (which generated some apprehension) but when the food arrived all worries vanished - high points included lovely tender lamb shanks, nicely cooked sirloin, world-class yorkshires and more roast potatoes than we could eat. The only minor negatives were that there had been some heavy rain the night before so the main dining area was initially closed, plus they seemed to be out of many of the bottled craft beers. Overall though we had a lovely time and will definitely come back.

What happened to the Sunday lunch options? U can only have chicken if there's 4 of u? What happens on a table for 2 if u don't eat beef or lamb? And your share options have also reduced. Food is lovely but u need to cater for more. Service was pretty bad too, really slow, no drinks offered the whole time we were there, had to get up to ask 4 times for a plate so I could actually eat the food! I know it's busy on a Sunday but either staff for it or take less bookings?
The changes would put me off going back on a Sunday! Expand your menu again!
Ps the sticky toffee pudding was as amazing as always!

Great venue with great food and portion sizes.

At first I though £14 for a Sunday roast was a little rich but for your money, you get good quality food, lashings of portions and great service from waiting on staff.

I originally though the venue would carry this place but the food and service would stand on their own.

Bar tenders were a little sombre, only noticeable because the restaurant staff were so sociable and bubbly.

We went as a party of 4 - 2 adults and 2 children for Sunday lunch. Overall the experience was very enjoyable with friendly service and decent food. The venue is unusual being a converted industrial space in the Baltic Quarter of Liverpool. This area plays host to a mixture of businesses from digital media to traditional light industry. There are a few trendy bars and is convenient for China Town. The Baltic is worth exploring and would benefit from the reopening of St James Station.

I had the Sirloin of beef whilst the others shared a joint of gammon. The meats were excellent with the beef being slow cooked but still pink in the middle, unlike the cremated rubbish served by most pubs. Vegetables were plentiful. Starters were so so. There were occasional glitches in service, mainly because some drinks were not available. That said i would definitely recommend the experience.

I booked a meal via TopTable for Camp and Furnace for my birthday. I got there to be told that there was no full menu of a weekday and that the main menu was only a Saturday and Sunday. Nowhere on their site did it mention this. I was also told by their staff that I shouldn't have been able to book this on your site as they were under the impression they had taken that option off - apparently not as it turned out. I was re-imbursed for a drink I had bought but then had to find another restaurant at short notice as they were only serving hot dogs and hamburgers that night. Very disappointed considering it was my birthday. I suggested to them that style over substance does not a great website make. Will go again but will telephone them first as can't rely on their website. I had to give mainly poor review stars as I didn't eat there. I would recommend it to a friend but only if they improved the information on their site.

Paid £20 deposit as told it was booking up fast. There were maybe 6 other parties so the ambience was rubbish. We had to go to the bar twice as our server wasn't attentive enough and I ordered a cocktail once.....because it took so long I wouldn't order again. The food choices were sari g platters of either cheese, bread, meat or fish. I'd hoped for a cooked dish alas no. The meat platter was awful, the pastrami was fatty and I pointed this out to our server. The chorizo was bland and we had one half of a gherkin. The bread came with a choice of butter or oil and vinegar. The cost? £14 per platter. Then the races came on and it got a little better....because there was some atmosphere. To top it off the bill cane and they didn't account for our £20 deposit so we just felt ripped off from start to finish. Never again.

I was in town to visit family and run Liverpool half marathon. I visited on both Saturday night (poor planning and not booking a restaurant before arrival and this was available) and Sunday lunch with extended family. Saturday night the food was nice, attempting to achieve gourmet but failing to really hit the mark. I was unsure if my main (fish) was cooked through and the dark light ambience made it impossible to be sure. The server was aware but I feel embarrassed so didn't really do anything. Having left 3/4 of it, I was surprised no one queried it at all and I was therefore left feeling hungry.

On Sunday the service was terrible. I think the kitchen is too small to cope with the size of the cover quota and the service style leaves the waiting staff queuing to take food out in a rushed and hectic fashion, hence it is not hot.

Overall, I feel the service, food and ambience (it is a restaurant after all) which is night club styled falls short of surely managements own expectations. The waiting staff do try hard but seem misguided.
