Eat out to help out: Wirral

I published a post earlier this week about the restaurants in Liverpool city centre taking part in the government's new "eat out to help out" scheme - and I thought I'd do the same for my side of the water, Wirral. The scheme starts on August 1st and allows you to get 50% off food up to £10 per person Monday through Wednesday. Support your local and indie businesses as much as possible! Without any more rambling, here are the Wirral restaurants taking part in the Eat Out to Help Out scheme...

Rise & Grind

Located in Wallasey, Rise & Grind does a bit of everything - and does it well. With an all day kitchen, a neon sign on the wall and a really varied menu, you won't struggle to enjoy a meal here no matter what time of day it is or what you fancy!

Low Slough & Dough

Based at Woodside Ferry Terminal, this is one of the best places for small plates and plenty of carbs. Expect Mexican food with veggie and vegan options, friendly staff and a fantastic view - what more could you ask for?

The Jug & Bottle

Located in Heswall, my mum says this is "classy" and perfect for a nice lunch with a view - homemade pub dinners with local produce, it's a great one for a special occasion and the food is delicious!

New Chinese Kitchen

If you just want a solid, good Chinese meal - look no further than Wallasey. Nothing fancy but absolutely delicious, me and my family have been going here for years. Their crispy duck is spot on and the chicken & sweetcorn soup is also to die for.


Down in New Brighton at the funky new Victorian Quarter you'll find Habibi - "Brooklyn beats and Eastern eats". Everyone raves about Habibi, and it's not hard to see why. Small plates, kebabs and more in a gorgeous setting? Yes please.

The Ship

Parkgate is the perfect place for a day trip (that famous ice cream!) and the Ship does delicious, traditional pub grub that will leave you feeling stuffed in a good way. In terms of Wirral restaurants taking part in the Eat Out to Help Out scheme, this will be a firm favourite.


Located in Upton, if you feel like you're missing out on Mediterranean cuisine this summer then you should make your way here! Fine dining so best reserved for special occasions, the seafood comes highly recommended!


A small-ish chain, I couldn't not put Hickory's on the list - it's BBQ food at its best, and the varied menu has so much to offer. Everyone loves a bit of Hickory's, so get yourself to West Kirby - this is definitely one of the most popular Wirral restaurants taking part in the Eat Out to Help Out scheme.

Caffe Cream

There's one in New Brighton and one in Birkenhead, and they do the best BEST home made ice cream as well as breakfast and lunch dishes. They're both well located and just a lovely business to support in these trying times!

Stollies Cafe & Deli

In Wallasey Village, this is one of the smallest Wirral restaurants taking part in the Eat Out to Help Out scheme - but it's fantastic. I love this as a place to sit with my laptop and get some work done, and it's a great place for a business meeting too. Would recommend! They're do typical cafe food, but it's done well.


Another Heswall offering, Gusto is one of the nicest Italians around - their pizza and pasta are to die for. There's not much else to say other than this is mid-range in terms of price so with the discount it'll work out quite nicely.

Leasowe Castle

You'll find Leasowe Castle on the list, and their Brasserie 1593 is amazing. Me and mum had a gorgeous meal there a while back, and it's a gorgeous setting. Highly recommend! You can use the discount is Wreckers or the Star Chambers.


A cafe in West Kirby, Hannah's has some great stuff on the menu including amazing options for those with specific dietary requirements - there's gluten free bread where it's needed, and plenty of vegan options. Wraps, burgers and more in a lovely location... winner!

So there's some of the best Wirral restaurants taking part in the Eat Out to Help Out scheme to help you when you're planning your meals out over the next month. If you have any more recommendations that are taking part please let me know - you can use the government's postcode checker to find restaurants in your local area.


  1. I genuinely love the way you've done these posts and recommended a bunch of lovely businesses. Low Slough & Dough sounds incredible and I'm practically booking a table at Habibi as we speak! I've never actually been to the Wirral but it sounds like you have lots of amazing restaurants there!

  2. Ooo those churros look so yummy! Xx
