Since being named the European Capital of Culture 15 years ago, Liverpool has been totally transformed, with numerous regeneration projects taking place and local creatives pioneering exciting new launches. This is great news for foodies, as the city’s restaurant scene has completely exploded.
Liverpool is a maritime city and local chefs have certainly drawn inspiration from that, whether it’s in the form of Indian street food or Middle Eastern small plates. Old favourites remain popular too – and if you’re wandering down Bold Street on a summer’s day, you’ll notice that most of the new kids on the block are seating customers back-to-back with people dining at restaurants that have been there since the ’70s, both with equal success.
Feeling hungry? Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion with afternoon tea, looking for some culinary sustenance after a day of exploring or fancy hopping from small-plates bar to small-plates bar, here’s our ultimate guide to the best restaurants in Liverpool right now.
