Written by Jennifer Rose 

Liverpool has an array of restaurants, pubs, bars and cafes- perfect for a student’s favourite pastimes (eating and saving money).

Whether you’re visiting the city or have recently moved to Liverpool, here’s a list of some of the best places to go in Liverpool.


Check out Arrad Street’s The Font – they have a wide selection of shots, cocktails, beers and gins for as little as £2 (there are also further deals if you purchase a Font card).

If you’re looking for somewhere alternative, try 81 Ltd. The Seel Street venue has a speakeasy theme and you are only able to gain entry by invitation or pre-booking.

For a fancier night of drinking, I’d suggest Neighbourhood. The Castle Street restaurant and bar is New York inspired, with craft cocktails and a different theme (and deal) every night of the week.


If you like all things Canadian (and aren’t afraid of big portions), Hope Street’s Moose Coffee is the place for you! They have a wide selection of breakfast items, from pancakes to eggs Benedict and it’s the perfect place to unwind.

After something a little different? China Town’s The Bagelry is the place to go. They boast a great selection of homemade bagels, cream cheese and donuts and are certainly Instagrammable.

If you’re after the winner of the Best Breakfast Award, head to Smithdown Road’s The Tavern Co. They have their Full English breakfast, various topped pancakes and- for anyone looking for the best of both worlds- you can enjoy a pancake with your breakfast if you choose ‘Breakfast at Tiffanys’


For a taste of India, try Bold Street’s Mowgli Street Food. The restaurant offers various small plates and caters for vegans, vegetarians and those who follow a gluten-free diet.

Burgers are boss, right? Well, if you like a burger, head to Maryland Street’s Free State Kitchen. They serve contemporary twists on East Coast American classics, alongside craft beers, wines and hot drinks.

If chips and gravy are your thing, Slater Street’s Caribou Poutine is the place for you, as they offer several variations of poutine: a delicious mix of chips, cheese curds, gravy and whatever topping you fancy.


Clucking crazy for chicken? Try Hanover Street’s Yard & Coop. They boast the Big Cock Burger, various hot and cold sides and delicious cocktails and drinks to go with them.

If you’re all about British food, head to Paradise Street’s George’s Great British Kitchen. They offer twists on local cuisine, with vegetarian and vegan options.

For special occasion dining, head to Beetham Plaza’s Etsu Japanese Restaurant. They serve sushi and various dishes from Japanese cuisine.
