10 Liverpool restaurants with outside heaters


It’s not quite al fresco dining temperatures out there at the moment, but since when has a little thing like that stopped us eating out in Liverpool?

Tier 2 means restaurants are back open but we can’t get together with mates from different households for a meal just yet – unless we do it outside.

So, if you want to share dinner in the run-up to Christmas, get yourself wrapped up and head to one of the restaurants in Liverpool that’s got outdoor heaters. It might not be sunnies and shorts weather like it was back in the spring, but six layers and a mulled gin should soon sort that out …

Maray, Albert Dock

Back in the summer when we had some of the first restrictions, Maray built pods outside its Albert Dock restaurant so groups of up to six could get together outside. Now it’s a bit chillier, the good news is the pods are heated so you have the option to reserve a Quayside Table when you book. And you can always rely on a disco cauli will keep you warm!

Castle Street Townhouse

Sitting out on Castle Street was a big part of the #withoutwalls experience this summer, and Castle Street Townhouse is keeping it going into winter with heaters on its terrace. You can’t book, so it’s first come first served, but if you can get an outside table then it’s a great place for people watching and enjoying Townhouse’s all-day menu.

Lunyalita is opening up again on Friday at the Albert Dock – Hanover Street has already beaten it to it – and anyone who fancies sharing some of the most amazing Spanish and Catalan dishes can do it outside without freezing because there’s a few heated terrace tables to be had by the quayside. Bring on the paella and tapas!

The Quarter

The Toxteth Riviera is always a gorgeous place to be, any time of the year, and now thanks to The Quarter on Falkner Street you can stay warm while you make the most of it. Those outside tables are some of the most sought-after in the city, so be lucky and grab one and heaters mean you’ll be toasty while you eat and drink.

Free State Kitchen

Free State Kitchen

FSK’s back garden has to be one of the nicest spots off Hope Street, and it’s just launched a menu of festive drinks including sloe gin mulled wine and boozy hot chocolate, so if you book an outside table you can combine the two! The outside tables go quickly, so just message them with your chosen time and they’ll do their best to fit you in.

Buyers Club

Tucked off Hardman Street, Buyers Club is back open with new dishes, new wines and mulled wine. There’s seating indoors obviously, but they’ve also got covered areas outside with heaters so weather dependent, you can meet up there. Bookings are being taken for Fri, Sat and Sun indoors, and it’s walk-ins for outdoors and the rest of the week.

The Old Stables at Allerton Golf Club

Back open on Thursday, the Old Stables – built on the former stable block and courtyard of the old estate – has heating on some of its outside tables so you can enjoy the view and its family-friendly menu without having to feel the cold. If you’re looking for some of the best beer-battered fish and chips around, call off the search.

El Gato Negro

On Exchange Flags, El Gato Negro has an amazing outdoor seating area overlooking the square and the Town Hall plus it’s fully kitted out with heaters and a canopy so there’s no chance of freezing while you take your pick from its tapas. The menu has been updated to celebrate reopening, which means the braised ox cheek is making a comeback.

Birdies Bar

Birdies, next to Ghetto Golf, is a great place for cocktails, beers and street food from Apocalypse Cow – and it’s got cosy outdoor heated cabins to have it all in. Birdies is all decked out for Christmas and it’s gone festive with the menu too, so now you can get a smoked pork belly, crispy stuffing and apple sauce special served with gravy and fries.

The Club House

The Club House in Liverpool ONE has got Tier 2 dining covered thanks to its fabulous winter lodges, all decorated for Christmas and lit up with twinkly fairy lights. The winter lodges help transform The Club House’s outside area into a little winter wonderland so they’re the perfect place for a hot mug of mulled wine or spice cider.
