Wirral restaurant has been number one on TripAdvisor for a year

A popular Wirral restaurant has now held the number one spot on TripAdvisor for a whole year.

In recent years Wirral’s top restaurants have included a quirky beach side cafe, a traditional Greek taverna and even a Michelin star restaurant.

This time last year, however, Wimpy took over the coveted TripAdvisor spot and has held on to it ever since.

The Birkenhead restaurant, which is Merseyside’s last Wimpy, saw an influx of excellent TripAdvisor reviews after raising its hygiene rating from one to five in 2019 – and it’s been on a steady rise since.

We even tried it for ourselves back in 2020 – and it certainly lived up to the hype.

Wimpy is tucked away inside the Grange & Pyramids shopping complex in Princes Pavement and is still serving the old favourites we all remember.

The restaurant has been there for more than 40 years, and while it has been renovated over the years, it’s still classic Wimpy.

While restaurants are currently closed for dining in, Wimpy is available for delivery.

When things are normal, all meals are served on Wimpy plates and dishes include the original Quarterpounder with Special Sauce, a fish finger burger and a veggie beanburger.

There’s also the Bender in a Bun – a round hotdog in a barm, with cheese, onion and ketchup.

The restaurant has rave reviews on TripAdvisor and has a rating of 5 stars.

A recent review even claimed Wimpy makes the “best burger in Birkenhead”.

Another said: “My partner and I love this place! One of the most friendliest service I have ever had.

“The staff are always happy to help with anything and always give their time to chat to the customers. Amazing service! The food is always lovely and the portion sizes are perfect. I can’t wait to return.”

Another said: “Imagine a McDonalds or Burger King with a warmer personal touch. I did not feel like a face in a busy queue to be whizzed through. This Wimpy was lovely and relaxed.”

While England is currently on lockdown and customers can’t make the trip into the restaurant, Wimpy is available to order via UberEats, Deliveroo and JustEat.
