The Everyman Bistro makes me happy. Hidden in the basement of the theatre just a ho,p skip and jump from Catholic Cathedral duck down the stairs so you can get warm understairs and avoid those infamous Liverpool winds. The food is good, hearty and homely and there’s always lots of choice and variety.
Walk down Hope Street towards the Catholic Cathedral, and you'll see an unassuming little door on your right. Walk through it, and you'll enter the Everyman Bistro - a boozy cave full of delicious food and exceedingly fine ale attached to the side of Liverpool's legendary Everyman theatre.
Since I've started working on Hope Street, the Everyman has very quickly become one of my favourite food & drink outlets - and is a great place to escape to for a quick lunch. The food is always delicious and interesting - ranging from vegetarian salads to huge bowls of steaming meaty stew. Best of all, the portions are always huge too, although you should be sure to leave room for their excellent puddings.
The Everyman might be a bit on the pricey side for some - a main meal with pudding and a drink will set you back at least £11 - but it's well worth it to dine in such a warm and friendly place. I never fail to leave the Everyman with a huge smile on my face (although that might be down to the sinfully large glasses of red wine I have a bit of a habit of drinking).
Oh - and if that wasn't enough for you to be won over to its charms, it's often open until the early hours of the morning on Fridays and weekends - making it the perfect place for a sneaky nightcap or three after a theatre performance. So, if you're coming here for the culture, be sure to stay for the booze. You won't be disappointed.
The location leaves it between the universities and the centre, making for a secret get-away from the hustle and bustle. This canteen is casual and serves fresh and healthy food. I find it rather pricey but will always continue to come here and enjoy it.
One of the most delightful eateries n boozers in the city. Friendly staff, wide n varied selection of ales n wholesome food (which has become pricier of late).
One word of warnin to tall fellas - watch ur head on the ceiling on way to lavvy !

The Everyman Bistro is a great place to come for lunch or dinner and a great place to meet up with friends. It has such a great atmosphere, really friendly and laid back. There’s a slight bohemian feel to the place. They serve a wide range of delicious food, some really interesting dishes are on offer. The food is ready prepared and is heated up when you order it so service is really quick. Portions are large and prices are reasonable - expect to pay around £7 - £10 for main meals. If you can manage it, the desserts are delicious and again, portions are generous. Tea and coffee are free refills which is excellent value. Definitely worth a visit.
One of my favourite places in Liverpool to eat on a lunch-time.
The Bistro is located downstairs, which is a slight disadvantage as it would be nice to be able to see some daylight, and perhaps to watch the world go by, whilst you eat.
But what they lack in natural light they more than make up for in the quality of their food. It is certainly very good -- tasty and fresh -- certainly worth paying that little bit extra for (which you have to as their prices aren’t the cheapest). There’s usually a good selection of food on offer so you can go for a light bite or something more substantial as you please.
The biggest improvement that’s come about in recent years is the smoking ban -- before 2007 there was always a slight lingering tobacco odour, but thankfully there isn’t nowadays.
Parking can be a bit of an issue -- there are some parking meters outside but the traffic wardens patrol regularly, so don’t outstay your welcome…
But all in all, this is an excellent eatery and comes highly recommended.
The Everyman Bistro is a nice little bar and restaurant tucked away underneath the Everyman Theatre. The bar has a good selection of beers which always include Cains best bitter, de Koninck (my favourite Belgian beer), a lager and normally a couple of guest ales/cider as well. The bar prices are pretty reasonable and you can buy bottles of wines for about £11 upwards. The food is served canteen style and there is normally a selection of salads, quiches, soups and main meals. The deserts are generally excellent, they do great crumbles! At lunchtime it’s good to come here for some lovely homemade soup, and a desert if you’re still feeling a bit hungry. The food isn’t too expensive, although as some of it is reheated in a microwave I feel that some of it can be a little overpriced. It gets very busy at lunch time and in the evenings (especially when there is something on in the theatre upstairs), so expect to queue for food at these times. It can also be a bit tricky to find a table for a large groups in the evening.
this is a great little, out of the way place to get a quick bite to eat.
ive generally found the food to be ok, but the desserts are where this place really excels.
everything tastes and looks homemade, even if it isnt, and even if it is warmed up in the microwave, it jsut points to the quality of the ingredients.
the prices are quite good, ive found that a 2 course meal will cost less than £10 per person.
the bistro offers more than just food, the bar offers a wide range of wines, and ales, as well as the usual spirits, to suit any palatte.
this is a great place to go to for a drink and some munchies to go with it as it is open, and serving food, until quite late.
the atmosphere is friendly, and the layout of the tables, and the size of them, means that you arent isolated from other people in the bar
OK if you like pre-cooked food warmed up in the microwave in front of you. On complaining that my lamb rogan josh tasted nothing like a lamb rogan josh (more a chicken and tomato stew), I was rudely informed that "chef doesn't cater for individual tastes", after which we voted with our feet and promptly left the already empty restaurant.
