Espositos Court Hey Park Opens in Huyton

Family-owned, Esposito’s, is already established in the local community with popular delis at Victoria Park, Widnes, Mill Dam Park, Kirkby, and Runcorn Hill Park. All set within public spaces and parkland, Esposito’s specialises in serving homemade cakes, toasted artisan sandwiches, and handmade gelato – all made fresh daily – alongside authentic Italian coffee, shipped from Tuscany. Esposito’s is a family-friendly establishment, promising something on the menu for everyone, including a great kid’s menu, meal deals, vegan and vegetarian options, as well as catering to dog owners, who are welcome to use the outside seating areas.

Following Esposito’s proven track record running the deli at Mill Dam Park over the last two years, and the positive impact it has had on the local community, Knowsley Borough Council invited Esposito’s to submit a tender for the food outlet at Court Hey Park – Knowsley’s flagship – in which they were successful.

“We are thrilled to be bringing our authentic Italian coffee and extensive deli menu to Court Hey Park,” said Daniel Esposito, the deli’s founder. “We believe that good food brings a community together, and we are passionate about creating a place for our customers to come together to eat, drink, and meet friends. We are confident that our delicious food and friendly service will make Esposito’s at Court Hey Park a popular destination for food lovers from across Knowsley and the wider Liverpool area. We look forward to welcoming everyone to the new café and working alongside the local community.”

Esposito’s newest deli, housed in a barn-style building within the courtyard, will open its doors at 9am on the 25th of May and operate seven days a week, 9 am – 5 pm, every day of the year (except Christmas Day). The deli will serve ‘good vibes daily’, providing customers with a warm and welcoming environment to enjoy delicious food and drinks. The deli features indoor café-style seating and an outdoor courtyard with picnic benches, where dogs are welcome. Esposito’s already has plans to link in with the well-established friend’s group, Incredible Edible Knowsley, based at Court Hey Park, to source local produce to use in its dishes.

Victoria Solomon, the Court Hey deli manager said: “It’s an exciting time to be part of the company, and I look forward to opening the deli at Court Hey. The park itself is beautiful with lovely walking routes and a great play area, as well as plenty of activities put on by the local council and park volunteers. I look forward to meeting the local customers and becoming part of the community.”

The arrival of Esposito’s is the latest development at Court Hey Park since One Knowsley, the infrastructure support body for the social sector in Knowsley, moved its operations to the courtyard following a Community Asset Transfer from Knowsley Council. Racheal Jones, Chief Executive of One Knowsley said: “Since our arrival at Court Hey Park our aim has been to add to the park’s offering, by creating a community hub that can be used and enjoyed by everyone. The arrival of the café is the latest initiative which is increasing our residents’ enjoyment of this wonderful space.”
