Liverpool city centre: eat out to help out

As we head back into some sense of normality and people are getting out and about again, everyone is loving going out for food. Obviously, because it's such a boss way to spend an hour or so. I wanted to put a post together with restaurants in Liverpool taking part in the 'eat out to help out' scheme. Regardless of how good the scheme itself actually is, I thought people might be interested to see which restaurants in the city centre you can get cheaper food from in August. Find out more about the scheme HERE.

Now, this isn't all of the restaurants in Liverpool taking part in the 'eat out to help out' scheme - that would take me all day, and if you just want a list then here you go! These are my favourites, though, and a bit more information about them. Enjoy...


I looooove Bundobust, which is on Bold Street; vegetarian and vegan Indian street food in a pastel pink setting? Thank you kindly. Their vada pav is just amazing and the food isn't expensive when you consider how good it is!


Also on Bold Street, Crust do some of the best pizzas EVER - their pasta dishes are lush, too. Again the food isn't too expensive and I always love eating at (or from!) Crust. Napoletana pizza all the way for me, btw. Not too plain, not too fussy - the dream.


Another Bold Street offering, I really can't speak higher of Pieminister; it's a chain but don't let that put you off. If you like pie then seriously go here - especially as they also offer amazing gluten free pies which don't taste any different. Easily one of my favourite restaurants in Liverpool taking part in the 'eat out to help out' scheme.


There are two Mowgli restaurants in Liverpool - one on Bold Street (you guessed it) and the other on Water Street. More Indian street food, but a totally different vibe to Bundobust. The food here is just to die for, especially the motherbutter chicken. Generally a little bit more expensive than some of the other restaurants on this list, but well worth it.

Yard & Coop

If you've been a regular blog reader for a while you'll have heard of Yard & Coop (Hanover St.) who do chicken at its very best. They even do a fried chicken afternoon tea?! Plus their cherryade is phenomenal - a high recommendation from me. To make things even better, kids eat free Thursday through Sunday 12-6pm at Yard & Coop throughout August, so if you can't make it out for food at the beginning of the week you don't have to miss out on a bargain.

Casa Italia

One of my favourite restaurants in the entire city, Casa Italia on Stanley Street is just next level. Their cheesy pasta dishes are amazing, and there's always a good vibe in here. I couldn't recommend Casa more if you're looking for restaurants in Liverpool taking part in the 'eat out to help out' scheme. Sooooo so so good.

Shiraz BBQ

Located on North John Street, Shiraz BBQ is the one if you want a good kebab. I don't mean an end of the night kebab, I'm talking real meat on skewers with rice, chips, fluffy bread and nice salad - the portion sizes are massive and you'll be stuffed but definitely in a good way. I love it here!

Galley @ the Ship & Mitre

If you just want some decent pub grub, the Ship & Mitre on Dale Street does really good pie, cheesy chips, all that sort of stuff; it's not exactly gourmet food but the portion sizes are huge, the dishes are tasty and it's not expensive at all. Perfect for a pre-pub crawl meal...

Final thoughts about the restaurants in Liverpool taking part in the 'eat out to help out' scheme

There are, of course, plenty of chain restaurants and fast food joints dotted around the city who are involved - McDonalds and Subway, Barburrito and Bem Brasil, and so on. But I wanted to pull together a short list of some of the best restaurants in Liverpool taking part in the 'eat out to help out' scheme and tell you WHY I like them. If you're from Liverpool and you think there's some I've left out, add them in the comments below or message me and I'll update the post.

Remember, the scheme starts on August 3rd and the discount (50% off up to £10 per head) is available on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. You can combine other offers (such as NHS discount) with the scheme, so bear that in mind too. If you're going out to eat in Liverpool, ENJOY - 2020 has been a hell of a year, so take the small pleasures where you can. Stay safe and take care of others! I have also done a 'Wirral: eat out to help out' post, so be sure to check that out too.


  1. So many yummy places! I might actually have to get over my fear to visit one this time around because there are so many good'uns taking part xx

  2. I'm sad I can't travel down to Liverpool and try some of these places out because they sound actually amazing! When it's safe to come I will do though - even without a discount those cheesy chips look delicious!

  3. These restaurants sound amazing! I'm in Liverpool next week for a few days and will hopefully get to try a few of these out x
