A Big Boss Brekkie for The Whitechapel Centre

The 17th-23rd June this year is a pretty special week as it's now officially 'Big Boss Brekkie' week. Personally, I like to indulge in big boss breakfast as much as I can, but this week it's particularly important as it's a fundraising week for


The Whitechapel Centre is the leading homelessness and housing charity for the Liverpool region. They work with people who are sleeping rough, living in hostels or struggling to find a place to live and they provide support and advice to those who are struggling with independent living.

Last year The Whitechapel Centre served over 25,000 hot breakfasts to their service users and they now need support to help this incredible work continue.For the last three years they have been doing an event called Big Boss Brekkie Week (think of it like an AmnesTea Party or Macmillan Coffee morning, except it’s breakfast!) The point of the event is to raise awareness while also raising funds for their life-saving work to continue.


 They want this year to be bigger, better, and more boss than ever! To do this they need our help and it couldn't be easier. Here's what you can do:

1. Post about the Big Boss Brekkie to raise awareness of the event and encourage people to take part and raise money for the Whitechapel Centre.

2. Have your own Big Boss Brekkie with friends, family or work colleagues.

3. Attend a Big Boss Brekkie at one of the fab cafes and restaurants across the city that are taking part this year. So far the places taking part are:

- Siren on Monday 27th- Friday 21st June
-St Paul's Social on Tuesday 18th June
-Olive on Wednesday 19th June
-Love Thy Neighbour on Sunday 23rd June
-Bean There all week from Monday 17th June- Sunday 23rd June

If any more jump on I'll keep you updated and you can find out more about the incredible work the Whitechapel Centre do on their website here.

Have fun!

Sunday Lunch at the Maritime Dining Rooms

If you go down to the Liverpool Maritime Museum today you're in for a rather lovely surprise.

Small Plates at Siren

Head up to the top end of town, just past the Chinese arch, a little further up than the Baltic and you may just come across Siren. It's a stunning, circular building with floor to ceiling glass and walls of twinkling fairy lights and, up until recently, I was under the impression it was purely an events space.

Lane 7 Bowling

There's a whole load of glorious nostalgia in the sticky carpets, ancient arcades and terrible food at the Hollywood Bowl. I spent many a childhood party there, as well as a fair few of my teenage years when we couldn't get in anywhere in town without ID (still can't to be honest).

Bistro Franc

You may or may not recall in my review of Cote Bistro a few months ago I was lamenting the lack of French restaurants in Liverpool. One of the places that got an honourable mention was Bistro Franc, once a part of the Bistro group it's now completely independent of it's French siblings and is standing alone as it's own beacon of retro French joy on Hanover Street.

Maggie Fu

My meal at Maggie Fu sadly didn't start quite as well as I'd hoped. A series of unfortunate events (including a mix-up about where to wait for our table and then it subsequently being given to some woman called Sandra) left me slightly agitated and hungrier than ever.

What we ate in... Bologna

I'm well aware that 'Food Capital' is a title that can be applied to many places in Italy. In fact, I think you'd be hard pushed to find anywhere you couldn't get your hands on a decent meal, but one place that has got to be up there with the best for eating is Bologna.

Much like myself, Bologna is known affectionately as La Grassa (the fat one). This Northern city is the capital of the Emilia-Romagna region- an area best known for producing some of the most iconic Italian edibles like balsamic, parmesan and mortadella. Of course it's also the home of Tagliatelle al Ragu, the dish that us fab Brits have somehow turned into Spag Bol.

Liverpool's Secret Gardens- 10 Cool Places to Drink This Summer

Grab the sun-cream and dust off your sunnies ladies and gents, it's that time of year again. The sunshine is back, and if the weather's anything like last year (an unbearable heatwave for months on end) we better get used to it.

 What's kept us going through that long, bleak winter? The thought of outdoor drinking of course! So,with that in mind, I've put together a list of  10 super cool city-centre gardens where al fresco drinks and dining are the order of the day.  In no particular order...

1. Birdies Bar and BBQ

Location:  29-31 Parliament St, Liverpool, L8 5RN 
Vibe: A huge, astro-turf paradise in the heart of the Cains Brewery District. Three different food vendors, live music and plastic palm-trees, it's just like you're in the Bahamas, I swear

Ghetto Golf vs. Junkyard Golf- Which is Better?

With the long-awaited arrival of Junkyard Golf at Liverpool One and its grand media launch this week there's been a lot of talk about Liverpool's newest adult-only crazy golf course. 

However, with the markedly similar Ghetto Golf already well-established and thriving up in the Baltic Triangle district, it has to beg the question- which one is better? In this highly scientific essay I will....

Brew & Bagel


I’m not entirely certain whether it’s courage or blind confidence that would inspire one to open up a new coffee shop in Woolton Village, but I imagine it’s a certain degree of both. 
Although the locals of this South Liverpool suburb love a good brew (I should know, I am one) there are already a multitude of similar places to choose from within throwing distance of the new Brew and Bagel on Woolton Street.

Castle Street Coffee x Santa Maluco

You may remember around this time last year when, due to a series of unfortunate events, the well-loved Bold Street Coffee were made temporarily homeless. Thankfully the good chaps over at Santa Maluco came to the rescue and offered them a temporary home in their colourful Castle Street home. For more details about that situation and the resulting collaboration have a wee look at my post about it on Liverpool Noise here.

Sapporo Teppanyaki

There's nothing else quite like Sapporo in Liverpool. As far as I'm aware, this Duke Street institution is our only Teppanyaki restaurant, and it's certainly the only restaurant with it's own Superlambanana. Inside, you'll be seated around a traditional hot-plate with a gaggle of strangers and watch as your meal is prepared in front of you by your own dedicated Teppanyaki chef.  When we went on a busy Friday evening the whole place was an absolute riot of noise, people and fire but even those of a nervous disposition (like myself) would find it extremely hard not to have a good time here.
