No 8 Lister Square

A venue as grand as the surrounding Quartermile, but with a reassuringly personal touch for diners and drinkers alike.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Walled with glass on two levels and surrounded by flats and offices, No 8 Lister Square is a surprising oasis of calm with comfortable seating and views across the square. Friendly staff welcome locals, students and the after-work crowd to watch sport on large TV screens or get stuck into a game or two of pool. There is frequent live music, a weekly quiz and good offers on a Friday evening. Food wise the main event includes cooking your own steak on a hot lava stone, followed by a chocolate shake with just the right balance of chocolate, milk and ice. If you’re in more of a snacking mood, baked flatbreads are good for sharing with friends as you settle back with a cocktail or too.
