In the few weeks running up to Christmas, restaurants, bars and coffee shops have adapted their venues to make sure they are safe for us to visit to celebrate the festive period with our household or support bubble. 

From bottomless brunch, to festive drinks, roast dinners and Christmas treats, Liverpool has it all. We’ve made a list below of venues in the city that are open and offering a bit of a festive feast this December.

Before visiting it is always recommended that you book a table for your household or support bubble and if you are unable to make it please let the venue know so they can pass it on to someone else. 

As of 2nd December, all hospitality venues such as restaurants, bars and pubs may only serve alcohol with a substantial meal. For more information on social distancing measures in Liverpool please see our Frequently Asked Questions
