15 restaurants in the Merseyside suburbs for Eat Out Help Out


Now that restaurants are back open again, we’re being encouraged to Eat Out to Help Out – enjoying our favourite places, and maybe trying a few new ones, to give businesses a boost after lockdown.

Throughout August, as an added incentive to go to restaurants, cafes and coffee shops, the Government is introducing its Eat Out To Help Out promotion giving people a discount of up to 50% when they eat in rather than takeaway at any of those who’ve signed up to take part.

The maximum discount available is £10 per person and you don’t have to do anything to claim it – everything will appear on the menu at full price, then the restaurant, pub or coffee shop will deduct the money off the bill and claim it back from the Government.

The discount is only available on food and soft drinks that you have on the premises, from Monday to Wednesday, but there’s no minimum spend so even if you just want a coffee, you’ll still get your 50% off.

More than 53,000 businesses are joining in the scheme nationally, and that includes hundreds in and around Liverpool.

There’s an Eat Out to Help Out tab in The Guide Liverpool’s directory here and you can find a full list for any area by typing your postcode into venue finder via Liverpool BID Company here.

Here are a few favourites outside the city centre who have already signed up:

Lark Lane

Lark Lane is such a go-to for eating out, especially with its new one-way system to make outside eating easier, so it’s no surprise that lots of restaurants there are taking part. They include:

  • Bistro Noir with mains such as jerk chicken, curried goat and teriyaki salmon as well as traditional fish & chips so you can’t go wrong.
  • Maranto’s an long-standing Italian legend on the Lane, best known for its steaks, seafood, pasta and freshly baked pizza.
  • Hafla Hafla for fantastic Middle Eastern-inspired street food including house falafel and their much-loved salt & pepper halloumi fries.
  • Pippins Corner has burgers, sharing platters and light bites, plus some pretty irresistible homemade cakes.
  • The Lark Bistro which serves small plates and mains, as well as breakfast and brunch including lots of vegan and veggie options.

Crosby & Waterloo

Crosby & Waterloo have always had a busy dining scene, and lots have signed up for the new scheme so it’s a great time to return, or try them out for the first time …

  • The Fat Italian is a family-run restaurant focused on Italian specialities – mains and a big choice of pastas and pizzas, alongside dishes from around the world.
  • Timberwolf Grind & Tap for craft beer, toasted sandwiches, coffee and cakes like their white chocolate and Jammie Dodger blondie.
  • So Salsa another family-run gem, this time a tapas bar and restaurant, So Salsa’s wells known for its friendly atmosphere and great cocktails too.
  • The Workshop deli, bar and restaurant that’s big on small plates – meat, seafood and veggie – and on using the best local ingredients.
  • Rock Salt run by the same owners at So Salsa and Treehouse, this kitchen & bar, opened a year ago, is perfect for brunch or a pizza and beer night.


Over on Wirral, restaurants, hotels and cafes are joining in the Eat Out To Help Out campaign. Here’s five where you can claim your Rishi discount …

  • Hickory’s Smokehouse where the smokers are all fired up again to deliver signature steaks, smokehouse specialities and super-stacked burgers.
  • The Wro although The Wro is a bar, it’s more than that – there’s also a menu of regularly changing small and big plates, and side bites like loaded skinny fries.
  • Leaf Tea Shop & Bar has teas, so many teas, but also an imaginative food menu from breakfasts to evening, and there’s gorgeous cake too.
  • Noya for a taste of what you might be missing this summer, Noya has a menu of Mediterranean mains including charcoal kebabs and its house moussaka.
  • Habibi is one of New Brighton’s brightest culinary stars thanks to its great styling, soundtrack and menu of Middle Eastern-inspired small plates.
