With Easter only a few days away, and summer creeping up over the horizon, of course our thoughts have turned to alfresco dining and drinking in Liverpool.
We’ve taken into account factors like kerb appeal and comfort – yes you can sit outside pretty much anywhere nowadays, but who can relax in the sun when they’re being assaulted on all sides by baying crowds of rowdy shoppers?
Confidential Guides is the perfect resource to help you search for the specifics when you’re looking for somewhere to go out to eat. Looking for alfresco, but it has to be Italian? No probs, just tick the boxes next to the filters and you’re good to go.
All our guides are written by us – people who love food and love to go out to eat. We’ve been living and eating in the North of England our whole lives and want everybody to know how great the restaurants are up here. We’ve all struggled to find an outdoor dining spot when we’re blessed with a few days of sunshine, so let this be your Easter weekend warning – it’s going to be a sunny one.
Keep reading for five of our favourite places to catch some rays while the sun is out. Perfect for brunching, lunching and Instagram posing.

You can’t get much more picture perfect than the cobbledy Falkner Street in the cool boho Georgian Quarter and, with its minty paint job, candy-striped canopy and European bistro-style terrace chairs, this Italian-inspired independent restaurant doesn’t let the side down.

Brunch Club by name, brunch club by nature – and those in the know make sure they book a table; this popular Duke Street joint is somewhere everyone wants to be a part of. Brunch, bottomless brunch and now after brunch, Friday through Sunday it’s also all about the bar.

Everybody knows the Bombed Out Church, but just in case: hit by an incendiary bomb during the Liverpool Blitz of 1941, its stone shell was left as a memorial to those lost in the war and the Grade II-listed building has only fairly recently been resurrected as a cultural venue.
