Maritime Dining Room
Please note that the Maritime Dining Room is closed until 25 January 2017 whilst we carry out maintenance work – we apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Please visit Quayside Café located on the ground floor of Merseyside Maritime Museum, where you can choose from a selection of light bites including soup and pasties, alongside a selection of freshly made sandwiches, cakes and pastries, snacks, hot and cold drinks.
Bookings can be made by calling 0151 478 4056.
Situated on the top floor of Merseyside Maritime Museum, the Maritime Dining Room offers modern regional food made in-house by our team of talented, award winning chefs.
Our menus use locally sourced ingredients and are updated regularly to make the most of fresh seasonal produce.
Our delicious and decadent afternoon tea includes a selection of savoury modern favourites, delicious homemade cakes and delicate pâtisserie, accompanied by freshly baked fruit scones served with homemade fruit conserve and fresh cream. Afternoon tea is served with an individual pot of loose leaf tea. If you want to indulge or celebrate, why not add a quarter bottle of prosecco or seasonal cocktail?
Sundays are always best spent catching up with family and friends over a delicious roast dinner. Why not relax and enjoy our two course Sunday roast, while taking in the stunning waterfront views and letting the conversation flow?
We offer a choice of Sunday roasts including traditional roast beef with crisp Yorkshire puddings, roast potatoes and seasonal vegetables. Follow your Sunday roast with your favourite dessert, such as our fabulously indulgent sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce.
