Liverpool, in particular, has some of the very best bars and restaurants for both people passing through, and residing in the city.

From ‘lob-scouse’ - the local delicacy to traditional British pubs and trendy cuisine hotspots serving appetising food and cocktails from all around the world.

Although Covid restrictions are currently in place, in what is usually a bustling city, there’s nothing stopping you from planning your trip and getting some reservations in order ready for when lockdown lifts and Liverpool’s thriving food and drink scene are back on the menu!

Choose from elegant fine dining at the London Carriage Works to quirky bistros on Lark Lane and everything in between. Here we highlight some of the best food and drink Liverpool has to offer.

Baltic Triangle

If you’re looking for hidden gems you may want to head to Liverpool’s up and coming Baltic Triangle, an area of the city loved by couples, young professionals, students and visitors alike.

Try Fodder for a true ‘lob-scouse’ experience and fill your belly with bowls of stew topped with traditional red cabbage, - a meal commonly eaten by sailors throughout Europe, which was popular in seaports such as Liverpool

On the hunt for some daytime bevvies? The Baltic Triangle and Cains Brewery have a great selection of craft beers for you and your friends to enjoy. 

Lastly, you wouldn’t want to miss the newly opened Lu Ban, where you can experience authentic, Chinese cuisine. 

Here you will enjoy a close-up dining encounter like no other, as you can book a seat at the chef’s table for a rare insight into the workings of their kitchen.

Tuck into roast duck pancakes dripping in hoisin sauce, or some delicious dumplings to share with a loved one. A local favourite among the community, not just for the delicious food, but for its wholesome spirit in giving-back.

Lu ban recently worked with local company RWinvest to give back to the city, to support those families and children who are struggling and delivered a thousand free packed lunches.

Castle Street

The city of Liverpool is renowned for being a spectacular night out. The bars and nightlife are second to none, and for daytime drinks and brunch, it has you covered too.

Head to Castle Street for Gino D’Acampo’s famous Italian pasta or to the Alchemist for cocktail concoctions filled with magic and theatre.

Albert Dock

Only a short walk away from Castle Street is the remarkable Albert Dock. Surrounded by beautiful architecture and the river Mersey it’s hard not to relax. 

Take in the sights as you devour fish and chips whilst people watching, or share a bottle of bubbles with friends; either way, the Albert Dock provides the perfect backdrop!

Bold Street

Finally, wander the cobbled streets of a long line of pop-ups and unique restaurants all serving up a storm. Bold Street is the ultimate foodies’ destination!

From Mexican to Greek, Turkish, American, British and Lebanese - this Street caters for all walks of life.

If you’re after a spot of tea, you’ll want to check out LEAF, but be sure to head there early as it’s always jam-packed with people waiting for its loose-leaf brews and phenomenal breakfasts.

Or perhaps you’re in the mood for a mouth-watering butter chicken curry? Your trip wouldn’t be complete without an Indian pit stop, in the first-ever Mowgli!

Now that your taste buds are alive and kicking, and you’ve worked up an appetite for some of Liverpool’s best eateries and drinking spots - where will you head to first?
