Eat and drink

Whether you’re seeking Italian pizza and pasta, Portuguese peri-peri chicken or Spanish tapas, Queen Square caters for all your Mediterranean cravings with ASK Italian, Nando’s and Tapas Revolution. Or choose from a range of mouth-watering cuts of meat cooked on an open fire then carved at the table at Copacabana Brazilian Steakhouse, Bar and Grill.

Courtyard Bar and Kitchen next door to the Royal Court mixes great small plates, bar snacks and a wide range of beers, wines and spirits. Eat and drink with friends. The booths and tables in the upstairs restaurant give unrivalled views of St George’s Hall and the covered outdoor space is the perfect place for a drink and some nibbles, whatever the weather. Café 38 inside Royal Court is also a good shout for breakfast and lunch. We recommend their homemade cakes.

St Johns food courtFast food options include McDonalds, KFC, Subway and Greggs at St Johns and Five Guys at Queen Square.

For dessert, head to Icestone Gelato to indulge in crepes, cookie dough, waffles, chocolate fondue, and gelato milkshakes.

If an old-fashioned pub is more your vibe, head to Doctor Duncans for cast and cask ale and traditional pub grub. Dog-friendly too.
