About Harbour Lights at The Sefton
Harbour Lights at The Sefton brings the familiar luxury of The Sefton Hotel to a relaxed yet sophisticated all-day dining restaurant in the heart of Douglas.
Open seven days a week and comprised of a main restaurant, overlooking the promenade, and 2 private dining areas, we provide the perfect setting for any occasion.
Sample our extensive range of quality food and delicious cocktails at your leisure from breakfast until late, whether you are a local resident, work close by or are simply visiting one of the Isle of Man's best-loved areas.
The service was a little slow to start, taking 15 mins to get some drinks. But once my guests were settled in everything went very smoothly. A lovely evening and delicious food. A high recommendation to all.
Slightly overpriced for the quantity of food.
Upon arrival, we weren't shown to our table, it was simply pointed out to us from the bar and we had to show ourselves to it. We advised staff that 2 of our Party were going to be 15 minutes late, but we weren't asked for any drinks until the late party had arrived! We had specified changes to some of the food options, however the order still came out completely wrong for 3/4 of us! Drinks order was wrong, waitress came and took an order for two of the Prosecco Cocktails and after 10 minutes she came back and told us she had forgotten what we had asked for! We used to think the service and Sparkling Brunch was great, but after our last experience, we won't be hurrying back to the Sefton which is a shame.
Great Food and an amazing transformation of quite a dated restaurant. Stunning refurb...will be back!
Service was not poor - just inexperienced I feel. Disappointed that you cannot choose a mixture from the Pre Theatre menu and A la carte menu. Being so strict in this day and age is unusual.
Loved the new look. Very comfortable sofas. Service, as usual, was spot on, you have a good team. Enjoyed our meal, food and presentation was very good. Only one criticism, the cauliflower was in a very large piece and difficult to separate. Maybe it would be separate into segments before sending out to the diner.
We had an excellent all round experience. We were very impressed with the food,ambience etc. We will definitely visit again.
It was cold no atmosphere not what we expected so we won't be going back
Highly recommend the ‘bottomless brunch’, the food was lovely and the service was great, the staff were very attentive and friendly, offered us lots of drinks and even took a photo for us. I would definitely go again.
We had such a fun time at the bottomless brunch. Faultless service despite the delay caused by the table before us being an hour late for their reservation. The food was tasty, fresh and filling. Friendly staff who helped make the whole experience fabulous.
Despite an extremely busy morning the staff were friendly and efficient. We were a party of 6 and will definitely be back.
When we first arrived we placed our drinks order and then it took about 20 minutes before they arrived. Other than that everything was great.
Brilliant, Friendly staff
The food is always lovely, however please warm the scones in the oven not the microwave, many thanks
The food was well presented hot and tasted good. Service on occasion wa slow but restaurant was busy. Young girl serving drinks very friendly, approachable and welcoming.
We had an amazing time and felt that the bottomless brunch was such good value that we have booked again for February
Lovely afternoon tea, great service, great atmosphere and great value for money
We had a really fantastic day and the service was great, I would definately recommend the Bottomless Brunch and have infact already booked for next week.
What a total let down our Christmas Lunch was for the price we paid it was shocking! Firstly we were not even in the restaurant put on a table at the back by the drafty back doors and two of us looking at a wall, no Christmas decorations in that room it was like we were added on as an after thought, to pay that much money you would be expected to at least have sat us in the main part of the restaurant. No butter served with the bread or lemon with the prawn starter, you could have at least put some tomato and cucumber in with the prawn cocktail and made a bit more effort. The soup was served luke warm at best but was tasty. The two beef was asked to be medium rare more like med to well done, the turkey dinner was not much to look at a bit pathetic to be honest but to not even have any potatoes, parsnips etc or any effort put in with the veg was a disgrace. The raspberry cheesecake was nice but the Christmas pudding was dry and again served bearly luke warm. Overall a poor effort for the money we paid and very disappointed.
We had a fabulous time for our Botttomless Brunch fab food & drinks loved it we’ll done to the staff Merry Christmas 🎄🎅
We had our office Christmas Lunch there and the food was spectacular.
The gin afternoon tea was something different and good value considering we had 4-5 Gins. The explanation of each gin was interesting and it was really nice to have a go at flavouring the gin. The times available were unusual (late afternoon) and it was very quiet which lacked atmosphere. Would definitely recommend the afternoon teas here. This is my second afternoon tea and they always have a special twist which make them more memorable than others.
Fabulous girlie morning/afternoon
Wonderful Christmas party, enjoyed by all, thank you very much :)
Love taking Afternoon Tea at the Sefton. Staff are always attentive and friendly. Food is good, though I would prefer more cakes and fewer sandwiches. However the warm scones are always a winner. For a catch-up with friends or a special occasion I would always recommend Harbour Lights at the Sefton. Thank You!
