10 reasons why you need to check out Nova Scotia on Mann Island this winter

2 years ago

Nova Scotia on Mann Island has fast become a waterfront hit, serving up breakfast, lunch and beverages seven days a week.

It has been six months since Nova Scotia opened its doors on Mann Island, from the brains behind Ma Boyle’s Alehouse & Eatery and Tempest on Tithebarn street it’s no surprise that it is quickly becoming a favourite with locals and visitors to the city.

Set in the stunning Mann Island building in the shadow of the spectacular Three Graces on Liverpool’s iconic waterfront Nova Scotia has the perfect location – the restaurant has utilised the extensive open-air drinking and dining space, as well as a beautiful interior restaurant and bar which looks out to the Museum of Liverpool and the city’s world-famous Docks.

Christmas Menu

This year Nova Scotia is sharing its Christmas Menu with Tempest on Tithebarn. Whilst a handful of classics from last year at Tempest are returning, including pigs in blankets, vegan sleeping bags and sticky toffee pudding, the Christmas menu features an abundance of new dishes including petite beef Wellington, halloumi winter logs and lemon and herb sea-bass for both locations.


Nova Scotia captures the city’s maritime past since the site opened at the start of summer 2022. It’s little known that at the end of the 19th century, the Mann Island area was previously a shanty-town called Nova Scotia, made up of dwellings and businesses serving the huge ships when the city boomed as a trade destination. 

Sunday Lunch 

Nova Scotia are serving up the classic roast dinner but with a twist… not only do you get your regular roast dinner, you also get a side of Scouse – now that’s what you call a double win! 

Choose from chicken supreme, crispy pork belly, slow-roasted beef brisket or Nova Scotia’s delicious vegan nut roast. Served with fresh vegetables, a huge Yorkshire pudding, crisp roast potatoes and a side of Nova Scotia’s signature Scouse! 


Fancy your classics like an espresso martini or negroni (oh stunnin’) they have you covered. They also shake up some signature cocktails such as Sea Brow Iced Tea (Vodka. Gin. Rum. Tequila. Blue Curacao. Topped with lemonade), and the Wapping Coconut (Cazcabel – coconut tequila. Fresh lime. Agave. Coconut.)… Fancy sharing? You and your mates can get a carafe!
