Food & Drink in Liverpool

Food and Drink in Liverpool is fantastically varied, from sleek fine dining to indie bistros and pop-up foodie heavens to high-street favourites, modern British - take a look at our best places for a classic Roast here - to the finest foods from around the world.

Take a look at our restaurants, cafes, traditional pubs and the best bars and nightlife.

If you're looking for hot spots, take a look down Bold Street for multicultural vibes or Castle Street for sophisticated lunch and drinks. 

Local produce is at our fingertips, with Wirral and Formby asparagus, Southport shrimps, Knowsley lamb, and Liverpool beer and gin some of the stars of the scene. Many restaurants and cafes are proud to use local produce.

Whilst we’re talking about food, it seems only right to mention the famous local delicary – Scouse! A tasty stew of meat and vegetables, served with crusty bread and beetroot or red cabbage (depending on personal preference and opinion). It’s how the people of Liverpool got their nickname ‘Scousers’, and is on the menu at many cafes and restaurants. 

If that's not enough, we actually have a day every year to celebrate the dish that gave us our name, Global Scouse Day takes place in February every year. If you fancy giving it a try before then, take a look at our 'Where to Try Scouse' blog.
