Albert Dock Dining

‘Historic’ food in an historical setting.

Located in the Grade 1 listed Queen Elizabeth Hall in the heart of Royal Albert Dock and overlooking Liverpool’s iconic Three Graces.

What’s Cooking is the longest serving restaurant in Royal Albert Dock and proud of its contribution to the area’s hugely successful revitalisation.

Dishes are prepared to order from the finest, freshest ingredients provided by local suppliers.

House specialities include the tastiest hand crafted burgers, fall-off-the-bone Barbecued Pork Ribs, and succulent grilled Beef Steaks.

We believe that our Cocktails are the best value in town and “pack a real punch”.
