The Best Places to Eat Over The Mersey

Sometimes even adopted scousers like to venture out of Liverpool. Today my fellow Liverpool-lover and Wirral-dweller Jack from My Take On Life gives you his top places to eat if you decide to venture over the water….

Awarded the capital of culture in 2008, Liverpool is a city famous for many things. The Beatles, Albert Dock, Liverpool One and its nightlife are just a few of the reasons why it’s a much loved city not only in the UK, but across the globe.

For me personally, I love making the short trip over to Liverpool for a day of browsing the shops, exploring The Albert Dock and stopping off in one of Liverpool’s many restaurants for a bite to eat, but I can imagine for people living in the city, you may want to explore places outside of Liverpool.

Just across the River Mersey you’ll find the Wirral and Cheshire, with many great places for a day out and endless places to eat. For anyone who hasn’t explored the other side of the Mersey, I thought I would share some of my favourite places to grab a bite.

The Montgomery, Eastham

Tucked away in Eastham Village, The Montgomery is a gastro pub serving delicious food surrounded by a friendly atmosphere. I’ve been to The Montgomery on a few occasions now and they’re yet to serve me anything but great tasting food, although I would advise you book in advance as it’s popular within the local area.

1539, Chester

Located on Chester Racecourse, 1539 offers a twist on classic British food. As well as enjoying the fine dining at 1539, you can enjoy your meal in front of a stunning backdrop, looking over the Racecourse. With elegant décor and amazing food, 1539 is definitely a place to celebrate a special occasion.

Within a short drive from Chester Zoo, The Black Dog is nestled away in a quiet area of Waverton.  Priding itself on traditional, home cooked food and a great selection of real ales, The Black Dog is the perfect setting for a hearty family meal, whether that be a light lunch or an evening meal with family and friends.

Hickory’s, Chester

Well known in the Chester and surrounding areas, Hickory’s is a smokehouse restaurant found on the River Dee. Popular across the country, Hickory’s can be found in a number of other locations across the UK, the closest to Chester being West Kirby. With food inspired from the deep south of America, Hickory’s is the ultimate meat lover’s haven and is sure to leave you feeling full.


The Bears Paw, Frodsham

The Bears Paw is a country pub situated in the market town of Frodsham, serving great tasting food at reasonable prices. Offering a wide variety of food, drinks and guest ales, The Bears Paw is the perfect place for a relaxed meal, whether that be with family or as a couple.
