One of Liverpool’s most popular restaurants and cocktail bars, Maray, is set to open its third site this summer at the iconic Royal Albert Dock in Liverpool.

The company’s expansion follows the success of its existing Middle Eastern-inspired restaurants, on Bold Street, Liverpool city centre and Allerton Road in the south of the city.

The new Maray will join an exciting food and drink line-up currently taking shape at the Royal Albert Dock, which has seen a number of independent operators open over the past year. These include Lunyalita, Rosa’s Thai Cafe and family-run bakery Rough Hand Made, along with the Barrie Brothers’ new restaurant, which is set to open over the coming months.

The menu on offer at the Royal Albert Dock restaurant will be the same as the other two sites, serving a diverse selection of vegetarian, vegan and non-vegetarian small plates, inspired by the flavours of the Middle East.

The new restaurant will accommodate up to 65 covers and will have a cocktail bar offering a creative drinks menu along beautiful views of the Dock waterfront, part of Liverpool’s UNESCO World Heritage site.


Portfolio Manager of Aberdeen Standard Investments, Chris Wright, comments, “We’re delighted Maray has chosen the Royal Albert Dock as the new home for its third opening. Maray will sit perfectly amongst the additional recent signings, making the Dock’s Britannia Pavilion one of Liverpool’s key restaurant destinations.

Maray was founded five years ago by partners Thomas White, James Bates and Dominic Jones.

Tom said, “We were really impressed with the recent signings at the Royal Albert Dock, and we’re looking forward to being part of the new food and drink line-up.

As a business, Liverpool is where we’ve cut our cloth – Bold Street provided us with the perfect introduction to the hospitality scene and continues to do well. With such a diverse mix of visitors at the Dock, we felt we could introduce Maray to a new audience and we’re excited to grow with the launch of the third site.

The Dock site will open in July at Britannia Pavillion, Albert Dock.
