    Ian Jones

    Food From Nowhere, 96 Bold Street, Liverpool, L1 4HY - Visit now

    Food From Nowhere has been one of Liverpool’s best-kept secrets since it opened in 2007. Based in the basement room of the hugely-influential left-wing bookshop, News From Nowhere, it’s run by volunteers and rather than prices, the menu lists suggested donations – so if you can afford more, do so, and help keep this wonderful place running for another decade.
