This month, Unlock Liverpool was invited to try Nova Scotia Liverpool’s waterfront menu. Located on Mann Island, guests are transported back to the city’s maritime past in this exquisite Albert Dock restaurant. Set sail for rustic home comfort food and impressive drinks at this brand new Liverpool bar and eatery!
Nova Scotia Liverpool is the third venture by independent Liverpool bar operator Ma Pub Group, this time situated alongside the city’s world-famous waterfront. The gorgeous Liverpool restaurant combines dog-friendly outdoor drinking and dining with the interior space’s rustic charm, all just a stone’s throw away from the Museum of Liverpool.
Nova Scotia’s Connection Between Canada and Liverpool
At the end of the 19th century, Liverpool’s Mann Island was home to a shanty-town called Nova Scotia. Ships frequently off-loaded lumber from Canada here, and the area thrived with booming businesses during the city’s trading and shipbuilding days.
While the area was gradually replaced when shipbuilding moved to Birkenhead and the docks were developed, Nova Scotia was nonetheless an integral part of the city’s maritime history. Inspired by this fantastic yet forgotten connection, this Albert Dock restaurant is taking guests on a mouth-watering voyage.
Nova Scotia Liverpool – Perfect For Lunch In The Sun
The Liverpool restaurant has an expansive outdoor area to sit back and soak up the sun, or you can retreat inside to the cosy and rustic interior that makes you feel straight at home.
Nova Scotia Liverpool offers a range of hearty mains made from fresh local produce that’ll go down a treat for any diner. There’s a range of tantalising options to choose from, as well as a wide selection of classic drinks and signature cocktails that certainly don’t disappoint.
We started with the Popcorn Halloumi small plate for £7. These bitesize beer-battered nuggets are incredibly moreish, and the roasted red pepper mayo provides an added punch.
Alongside these, we sipped Aperol Spritzes (£8) – a classic cocktail that pairs perfectly with the sun-soaked terrace.
For mains, we settled on Nova Scotia’s Royal Charter burger with succulent grilled chicken breast, smashed avocado and smoked bacon. Priced at £13, it featured a perfect blend of flavours and was mouth-watering to the very last bite. The salty kick of the homemade seasoned fries was a tasty addition.
We also tried the PS Scotia burger (£11) with a homemade beef patty and house burger sauce. The juicy patty paired with the indulgent beer-battered onion rings made it a classic and comforting burger.
We finished our meal at this Liverpool restaurant with Americanos and the Signature Brownie (£4.50). Wow. This gooey triple chocolate dessert is decadent and worth saving room for.
