Iain’s other venues, Ma Boyle’s Alehouse and Eatery and Tempest on Tithebarn, are thriving again and both have had fabulous impacts for their surrounding areas, creating a destination in places such as Tithebarn Street that are usually thoroughfares in order to access other parts of the City. Iain strives to further develop on this positivity by helping further the position of Mann Island as a destination for Liverpudlians across the Liverpool City Region.
