Liverpool is packed with great places for food and drink, so we’ve rounded up information about some of its best venues.
Liverpool is famously home to Europe’s oldest Chinatown, so it is the perfect place to find deliciously authentic Chinese food. China City offers a classic Cantonese and Szechuan menu, while Yuet Ben, on nearby Upper Duke Street, offers great views of the Chinatown gate and even has a vegetarian menu.
Further out of the city centre you’ll find more options – Chy Restaurant, on Aigburth’s bohemian hotspot Lark Lane, is hugely popular for its delicious combination of traditional and modern flavours, while New Orchid Garden Restaurant has been delighting customers in West Derby for over 20 years.
The Baltic Triangle is where you’ll find a good pub lunch with a contemporary twist, with plenty of quirky modern restaurants housed within former industrial warehouses. Blundell Street Restaurant serves up three-course meals on Fridays and Saturdays, and a traditional roast of the day on Sundays.
Back in the city centre, the Richmond Hotel serves up a classic Sunday lunch at its on-site brasserie, housed within the elegant surroundings of a Grade II-listed building. Still undecided? Check out this guide to some of the city’s best pubs for more inspiration.
If you’re heading for a busy day out with the kids, why not treat them to delicious Greek food at the family-friendly Zorbas on Leece Street? Alternatively, head to Gusto at the Albert Dock or Jamie’s Italian in Liverpool ONE, both of which serve up delicious mini portions of their fresh pizza and pasta dishes that are perfect for little ones. At the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar and Grill on Chapel Street, your little ones can create their own culinary masterpieces - a burger with a choice of tasty toppings.

What is umami? We break down what to expect from the fifth flavor. Hint: it's not salty, sweet, sour, or bitter.
It’s fair to say I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with shopping, particularly at the Trafford Centre. The one thing that gets me through the sometimes-necessary trips to such places is the hope of finding somewhere good to dine when I’m finished. You’d think that’d be easy at the Trafford Centre, after all there are over 50 places to eat and drink. Although the majority are either coffee shops or the usual sort of chains you can find on any retail park - from Pizza Express and Nando’s to T.G.I Fridays and Frankie & Benny’s - there are several more interesting options too.
