Food Fit for a Giant

As we all know, the final giant spectacular is full steam ahead in Liverpool, from slashing buses in half to snoozing away in st George’s hall, to airing their dirty laundry on Castle Street, they’ve already been up to all kinds…and it’s only day 1. With all that walking around, they’re sure to become hungry and although we’ve seen Xolo the dog lapping up water on his walk through the Georgian Quarter, we haven’t heard much about where the giants are going to dine during their visit to Liverpool. It’s no secret that the choices are endless when it comes to Liverpool’s foodie scene and it seems that the appetites of the giants are no exception, here are some of the delicious options they’ll have during their stay:


Delifonseca is set to welcome the return of the Giants with an all-day dockside celebration.

With the Giants set to make their way along the waterfront and down Sefton Street between 10.15am and 4.00pm on Sunday October 7, the restaurant will be opening an hour earlier to kick-off the merriments. With service starting at 8am, guests can indulge in a proper breakfast to set them up for the day’s activities.

Bystanders can enjoy Delifonseca’s outside BBQ, exclusive for the Giants Spectacular, which will be serving Hot Chorizo and Halloumi Sandwiches alongside Hot Mulled Cider and Mulled Apple Juice.

With a number of road closures throughout Liverpool this weekend, Delifonseca is the ideal place to cycle to whilst the Northern Line at Brunswick Station will remain open and is just a two-minute stroll from the restaurant.

Throughout the weekend, Delifonseca will be open as usual serving a range of dishes from its Blackboard Menu.

The Brink

The Brink will be giving The Giants a proper Liverpool welcome as they make their way down Duke Street this Friday.

The dry bar and café, owned by national charity Action on Addiction, will be serving up Giant Scouse Pie with Chips and Green Beans for £6.95 for local residents and tourists alike.

The Giants will be passing close to The Brink between 4.15pm and 7.15pm as they make their way from Princes Park to Queen’s Wharf for their evening sleep.

As well as Giant Scouse Pie and Chips, The Brink will be serving its regular menu, featuring paninis, burgers, and meals for the little ones from their Kids’ Menu.
