Never a city renowned for haute cuisine, Liverpool has nonetheless made great strides in recent years. It’s still not a foodie destination per se, but contemporary restaurants serving the best in fresh local produce have done wonders for the town’s culinary reputation, and all budgets are well catered for.

Top Restaurants in Liverpool

60 Hope Street

With a modern interior of wooden tables, fresh flowers and original artworks, the atmosphere at 60 Hope Street is as refined as the dining. Local meat and seafood specials include roast rump of winter Swaledale lamb.

With a pop-star owner (Natasha Hamilton of the band, Atomic Kitten) and shopping mall location, Hamiltons’s was never about fine-dining. Instead, it was designed to promote healthy local produce in a family-friendly environment (there’s a dedicated “car-park” for strollers). Favorites like sausage and mash are served.

London Carriage Works

In the thick of the Liverpudlian action, the cool exposed bricks, soft white color scheme and attentive service make the 48-room Hope Street Hotel one of the city’s finest. Paul Askew’s award-winning London Carriage Works restaurant continues to thrill diners.

The Lobster Pot

England is famous for fish and chips. The generations-established Lobster Pot is Liverpool’s best “chippy” (every British city needs one). The recipes don’t change – battered fish and chunky chips straight from the fryer – but it’s an experience not to be missed.
