The Cheese Lovers’ Guide to Liverpool

Come rain or shine, you simply can’t go wrong with fresh, delicious cheesy goodness! From the heart of Liverpool city centre to the leafy Woolton suburbs, cheese-lovers will find a variety of cheese delights in Liverpool.

Whether it’s a classic combo of cheese and wine, a warm cheese toastie or chips and cheese with a twist, we’ve compiled a list of the best cheese boards and dishes in Liverpool.

Cheese & Co

Located just on the corner of Liverpool’s scenic Castle Street, you’ll find the delightful and cosy Cheese & Co. The first dedicated cheese restaurant in Liverpool, it goes without saying that this is a go-to spot for a wide variety of cheese dishes.

The Liverpool independent cafe and cheese shop provides customers with only the best ingredients and customer service. Their extensive menu allows you to craft your own personalised cheese board, created from their wide ranged of cheeses. Breakfast and day dishes range from warm toasties to dreamy baked Camembert with mushroom marmalade or garlic.

During sunnier months, you can watch the world go by as you make the most of Cheese + Co’s picturesque outdoor seating, only a short walk from Liverpool Town Hall.

Filter + Fox

Filter + Fox is a go-to hideout all year round. Tucked away on Duke Street, this is a perfect spot for an afternoon treat and a catch up. Their famous Grilled Cheese sandwich is only one of their cheesiest menu options, but it’s certainly a favourite.

Undoubtedly one of the best cheese toasties in Liverpool, slices of crusty bread ooze vintage cheddar and gruyere, grilled to perfection by their talented team. We’re not sure there’s a better hangover cure in Liverpool!

At Filter + Fox, you can also choose from their Halloumi + Hummus sandwich, Grilled Halloumi with roasted red pepper cous cous, pomegranate molasses and mint and  of course their generous cheese board.

Renowned for some of the best cocktails in Liverpool, it’s well-worth complementing your cheesy choice with an eclectic concoction, guaranteed to hit the spot.

Mowgli Street Food

To spice things up a bit, look no further than Mowgli Street Food’s Himalayan Cheese on Toast. Liverpool locals and tourists can now enjoy Mowgli within two of Liverpool’s most vibrant areas, including picturesque Bold Street and Castle Street.

Reminiscent of founder Nisha Katona’s childhood suppers, Mowgli serves cheese on toast like you’ve never tasted before. You can expect strong, tangy cheese combined with a herby twang of coriander. Yum!

Portland Street

For cheesy fries with a twist, South Liverpool gem Portland Street has got you covered. Available to eat in or takeaway, Portland Street’s popular Pizza Fries are a delicious alternative to your traditional cheesy chips.

Served for breakfast and dinner, you can enjoy this hearty dish served as you wish. Whether you fancy Margherita, Latin, Holy Mole, Jerk Chicken, Tennesse or Cajun Tuna Pizza Fries, we suspect you won’t regret it.

The Refinery Liverpool

A generous serving of cheese, crackers and some healthy grapes to cancel it all out, look no further than The Refinery for a cheese platter that you won’t forget!

Located just off Liverpool’s charming Hope Street, The Refinery is a go-to spot for summer drinks and sharing bites for everyone. One of the best venues for outdoor seating in Liverpool, sit back, relax and enjoy a well earned rest after a busy day of shopping.

Bill’s Liverpool Restaurant

A prime spot for a scrumptious bite to eat, you’ll find Liverpool’s very own Bill’s Restaurant next to Liverpool ONE steps, only moments from the Albert Dock.

For delicious cheese in Liverpool, Bill’s is a must-visit while in the city. For a full meal, their delicious halloumi, hummus and red pepper burger will hit the spot. However, at Bill’s it’s one of their best loved starters that caught our attention. Start your meal as you mean to go on with heavenly, crumbled halloumi cheese sticks.

The Egg Cafe

The Egg Cafe is a local favourite that visitors could easily miss! Hidden way up a flight of two of stairs, you’ll discover this vegetarian hot spot nestled away off Bold Street. This airy space is ideal for a relaxed, replenishing meal with your nearest and dearest.

The ultimate winter warmer or a light Summer lunch, what could be better than melted cheese on toast than cheese on toast served with tasty soup? We can’t think of many things we’d rather curl up with on a Sunday afternoon!

Liverpool Cheese Company


Liverpool’s favourite cheese shop, Liverpool Cheese Company is the best of the best when it comes to quality and variety. The must-visit cheese shop is located in Liverpool’s historic Woolton Village, the picturesque suburban area where Lennon and McCartney first crossed paths.

Liverpool Cheese Company are renowned for specialist and artisan cheeses, special gift baskets, luxury hampers and even wedding cakes made entirely of cheese! Your desired order can even be click and collected using their website, so you can plan ahead when hosting the perfect cheese and wine night!

The Club House

Giving the Hampton’s a run for its money, The Club House is a must during the warmer months of the year. With  its beachy, New England-style design and scenic garden space, you can bask in the sun with their delicious cheesy dishes.

Perfect for sharing, why not indulge in the Club House’s very own deli board? Cheese fans can choose from Camembert with Dried Fruit and Walnuts, Stilton, Appleby’s Red Cheshire or Shorrock’s 2 year-aged Lancashire cheese.

And of course, it would be rude not to wash it down with a fruity cocktail. They serve everything from Trappist Beers and India Pale Ales to Cocktails on Tap, poured to perfection for your enjoyment!

The Bastion Bar & Restaurant 

The Bastion Bar & Restaurant can be found within Liverpool’s infamous Bill Shankly-themed hotel. The Shankly Hotel’s luxury restaurant and bar serves a variety of dishes, featuring British classics that are sure to hit the spot.
