Waterhouse Café

The Waterhouse Café

The Waterhouse Café at the Victoria Gallery & Museum is one of the few places you can visit in Liverpool where you can eat delicious food whilst drinking in exceptional culture. 

Step away from your busy day and take some time to dine in a calm and cultured environment. You’re sure to leave feeling fully satisfied in both body and mind - all great value.

Whether you’re here for a day out, attending events or exhibitions in Liverpool or you live or work nearby – make sure you plan a lunch or snack break near the VG&M so you can sneak in for a tasty treat.
