Our Story


NORD is a joint venture brought to the Liverpool dining scene by GSG Hospitality and Chef Daniel Heffy.

The restaurant celebrates Northern hospitality and heritage, friendly and engaging service, paired with a food and drink offering built on local relationships with our suppliers.

Influenced by Chef Daniel Heffy’s time in Scandinavia, the NORD menu highlights locally sourced ingredients prepared in a contemporary way. All fish and seafood will be supplied by Birkenhead-based fishmonger, Wards Fish, whilst Caterite in Cockermouth, which has one of the largest salt chambers in the UK, will provide fresh meat. Other suppliers include: Growing @ Field 28, North by Sud-oust Charcuterie, Wirral Watercress, and Claremont Farm.
