Liverpool Football Club has revolutionised its culinary offering with the opening of a restaurant at Anfield which is open to the general public seven days a week.
The Boot Room Restaurant is named after the famous Boot Room at Anfield. It was in this room a tradition began from the start of Bill Shankly’s tenure as manager, for the coaching staff to gather after matches and training, to discuss the match, the team and football in general.
Over time the Boot Room came to symbolise a tradition within Liverpool of building from within. It’s where younger members of the coaching staff were given a footballing education and many managers learnt their trade. From Shankly to Paisley, Fagan and later Ronnie Moran and Roy Evans, the tradition of collective institutional knowledge helped guide Liverpool to success after success.
The 230-cover eatery is situated under the iconic Kop stand and will be family-friendly, serving favourites including steaks, burgers, stone-baked pizzas and pasta dishes.
It is the first time the club has opened a restaurant which is open to the general public. It is open from 11am to 11pm every day of the week, except match days, with free secure parking available at the ground.
