In line with the current government advice and guidance we are now open for dine in meals as well as a takeaway service on our limited menu. We will have limited tables available inside the cafe in line with the current 1 metre social distancing guidelines, which we are advising customers to pre-book via phone (01704 898102) only. We are taking every precaution to ensure the safety of our staff and customers and we are asking for your understanding and patience as we are all adjusting to this new way of working and strive to make your visit to Merlin's as comfortable and enjoyable a dining experience as possible.

For those who do not feel comfortable enough to dine in with us we are still offering takeaway orders which you can place by phone on 01704 898102 and collect from us following social distancing guidelines and the pathway through the cafe.

Please note at this time we are open from Monday to Friday ONLY, at our regular times of 8am - 4pm.

We would like to thank everyone for their support during the last few months and we hope to see you at Merlin's soon!

Welcome to Merlin's Cafe!

We are an artisan cafe based in Burscough, a short distance from the town of Southport and the city of Liverpool. We are dedicated to serving tasty, wholesome, rustic dishes all prepared from scratch in our own kitchen and offer an impressive selection of breakfasts, brunches and lunches, as well as light bites, cakes and tasty snacks ideal for any time of the day.

During warm weather you can sit and relax by the lovely pond just outside of the cafe, and if you're in a rush we also offer a take-away service with any item on our menu or specials board. We also provide a full catering service for any buffets you may require, and a corporate lunch service for local businesses.

We currently hold a 5 out of 5 rating by the Food Hygiene Rating Service and are also a dog friendly cafe and love to welcome your four legged friends into the cafe as much as their owners!
