Dubbed “freakshakes”, they’re less of a beverage, more of a challenge.

Barley & Beans opened up in Hatton Gardens just at the end of 2014 and their philosophy is to remind you to slow down. With the new milkshakes they’ve just created, we don’t think you will have a say on the matter. Whilst some places might be rushing to get you out, these guys are dying to keep you there and it’s the perfect place to watch the world go by.


Freakshakes are a recent epidemic that have swept the world. From Australia to Tokyo and everywhere in between, people are going crazy for these over the top shakes. Barley & Beans have stepped up to the plate, or the jam jar, and gave the people of Liverpool a taste of what the world can’t stop talking about.


They’ve launched with four different kinds. Our favourite is the ”Nutella Milkshake”, it’s a thick & creamy Nutella milkshake, topped with lashings of whipped cream, Oreo dust, Ferrero Roche, curly wurly & Cadbury mini roll. Other shakes include strawberry shortcake, salted caramel and peanut butter. Expect lots more and food challenges to come.
