The Packet Steamer Beefeater restaurant in Liverpool
Here at the Packet Steamer Beefeater, Bootle we're famous for our friendly service and our perfectly grilled classic pub dishes. From our mouth-watering steaks to fresh fish and salads, you'll find plenty of great-value meals on the menu. We’re a great base for trips to Liverpool, and we’re a favourite with the locals too.

Our team
We’re lucky to have such a dedicated and passionate team at the Packet Steamer. Some of our team members have been with us for over 30 years! That’s over 30 years of learning how to create a relaxed atmosphere, how to serve food in style and ultimately to deliver the perfect steaks single time.

We love being part of the community in Bootle, and we’re looking to do more charity work soon. We’d also like to start supporting Bootle FC, the local football team.

Our location
We’re in a really convenient spot, only a 5-minute walk from the Old Roan train station with great links on to Liverpool and Ormskirk.

Our restaurant has two function rooms for hosting events. Our first room is smaller and holds up to 20 people, great for smaller occasions or gatherings. Our other function room can hold up to 50 people. Our function rooms are in a convenient part of the restaurant and are ideal for having your own space, make sure to book ahead if you’re interested!

We also have a relaxed, chilled out bar area, and we’re always showing the biggest games on BT Sports.

Make sure to take a look at our offers page for all our latest deals and promotions.

Why we love Liverpool
Bootle is a scenic town and a great spot for enjoying a slightly slower pace of life, while still being ridiculously close to Liverpool. In fact, we’re only a 20-minute drive or 40-minute train journey away from Liverpool City Centre – you couldn’t pick a better place for a relaxed bite to eat before exploring the city! Bootle is right next to the scenic River Mersey, Crosby Beach and Derby Park – plenty of great places to take the kids after a meal out without driving around for ages.

There’s so much to say about Liverpool, we can’t possibly do it all justice here. It’s the city that brought the world the Beatles, it’s a major dockland hub that was vital during the industrial revolution and it’s also the home of one of the leading UK football teams.

After you’ve enjoyed a delicious meal with us, we’d recommend seeing the Beatles Experience and the Albert Docks, they’re close together and really capture the excitement of the city. Whether you’re stopping by for breakfast, lunch or dinner, after your meal there’s so much to see in Liverpool afterwards. Enjoy a great night out at the Cavern Club, the legendary Beatles venue, catch a Liverpool FC game at Anfield Stadium or lose yourself in the natural history World Museum. There’s great parks and outdoor spaces for walks too like Calderstones Park and Birkenhead Park. And of course, the home of the Grand National, Aintree Racecourse is only 5-minute drive away from our restaurant too.

Frequently asked questions

As a Beefeater restaurant, we know how to grill meals to perfection. That’s why our surf and turf combo is probably one of our most popular dishes – we combine our perfectly grilled 8oz sirloin steaks with prawns, wild-caught Canadian scallops baked in garlic & parsley, and lightly dusted seasoned calamari. We top it all off with triple-cooked chips and lemon & roasted garlic mayonnaise. The stuff of dreams!

We are, and we just happen to do the best roast in town. With our Sunday roasts you can choose from our specialty roast sirloin of beef, rump of lamb, half-roast chicken or butternut squash & ale pie, served with all the trimmings and our signature red wine gravy. You also get unlimited roast potatoes and other delicious extras.

It’s got to be the Premier Inn Breakfast, which we serve at the Packet Steamer. An unlimited selection of the best of an English breakfast. That’s bacon, eggs cooked just how you like them, hash browns, black pudding, toast and plenty more with free tea and coffee.

We’ve got everything you need to turn family mealtimes from a chore into a treat! Our kids’ menu has something for even the fussiest kids, our team are all great with children and we’ve got plenty of outdoor space for kids to run around in before their food’s ready.
