The Waterhouse Café

The Cafe is closed on Wednesday 29 November

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 the 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 with both body and mind - all great value.

Whether you’re here for a day out, attending an event 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.
