📍90 Dale Street, Unit 3 Westminster Chambers, Liverpool L2 5TF

🗨️ One reviewer said: “I moved to Liverpool in 2019 and I’ve never found any place that does more satisfying food than Dale Street. Their menu is great as it is, but what I really like is that it’s so flexible. I have an unfortunate amount of dietary requirements, and Dale Street are brilliant with them. They’re happy to substitute anything and change any meal to suit you. They also have really great customisable options on the menu anyway, like build your own breakfast and build your own burger.”
