A disappointing meal as chef had experimented with a different ale to batter the fish and it tasted awful. However the problem was dealt with politely and professionally by the staff who agreed with my complaint. Have been before and really enjoyed so would return
We had our Microgaming Marketing Team Christmas party at Harbour Lights at the Sefton, taking advantage of the Gin Tasting afternoon tea. The whole experience was fantastic, from making our own gins, the sandwiches and cakes, to tasting new gins from around the world. We were greeted by Chris, who looked after us throughout the experience. Nothing was too much (including looking after some Christmas cheese for us in their fridges until the next day!) We all walked out with full bellies and a rosy glow from all the yummy gin! Thank you and Merry Christmas
I hosted my daughters 10th birthday party with you yesterday. Everything was perfect, from the service to food and even the surprise Santa that you arranged to visit our table ! You went over and beyond to make it very special ! Many thanks, 10/10 rating !
A very disappointing afternoon tea. Prawn cocktail lacked any seasoning as did the sandwiches and desserts seemed to have been defrosted. The staff seemed surprised we had booked.
Lovely prosecco brunch for anniversary celebration. The staff were lovely, attentive but discrete, and the brunch delicious. I would highly recommend it.
Business lunch for 12 people. Well executed and everyone happy with the food and service.
Unfortunately we didn’t enjoy our visit. Arrived at 1pm and no table set up for us, told to wait! Once seated it wasn’t set up for afternoon tea, we had to mention this a few times, in which we felt we were an inconvenience. Eventually after an hour we received our food (extremely lovely too) however as we had our tea already and drank it, we asked for some more to have with our food, again made to feel an inconvenience for being there. We only had water added into the already stewed tea bag! We asked for a cocktail menu, told they didn’t want to make cocktails as were too busy! It was our Christmas ladies day!! Once cake was served, the waitress knocked over my friends cup and saucer filled with the weak tea! No apology except a huff when asked for a cloth to clean it! I could go on, while the food was amazing, the service and way we were made to feel was absolutely awful and I’m afraid will not be returning due to this! Extremely disappointed!
I emailed before posting this to give you a chance to rectify but I didn’t get a response at all. Wevame along for my birthday with all of my family, the service was shocking, extremely slow, it was very quiet when we were there, there was dirty tables every where, trying to get drinks was a real task, food was ok, but we were constantly chasing people for service, there just seemed to be one person running it and when spoken to was very apologetic but she was pretty much doing everything, there was other staff but they weren’t up for serving, we were ignored at the bar for so long. It’s put all of us off coming back.
Great service and friendly staff
Enjoyed our brunch. Good food and friendly service. Like the relaxed feel of the new decor.
Our eggs we’re a little under cooked but overall the food and service was superb will definitely come back
A wide range of items on offer for afternoon tea and an opportunity for the chef to express is skill and knowledge. A lovely atmosphere and pleasant experience
We really enjoyed our afternoon tea
Lovely new area nice atmosphere and tastefully decorated. Afternoon tea - had better but ok need more vegetarian options prawns just omitted in the cocktail and plain cheese put on roll. Staff - Lack of experienced staff, shame plates left on table etc Would try again as it was a busy evening and like the venue
Rather expensive for just ok (but trying to be fancy) food and very modest portions. Not many staff so good job wasn’t too busy.
Whole experience was very disappointing. Presentation: poor. Extortionate price for what you got /didn’t even get everything on the menu.
Always good food and excellent service
Great service. Food well cooked and presented . I liked the menu choices. Setting is lovely.
Excellent service and food. Thank you for a magical evening.
Food was fresh and portions generous.
A very lovely meal. Catered well for gluten free
Fantastic meal in a great location with fantastic service! I will be back.
Great prosecco cocktails in a relaxing setting.
I selected sparkling afternoon tea and the lady who served us didn't know also I wrote on the online booking form no avacado also no salmon due to allergies but we were given both of these. The rest of the afternoon tea was well presented and delicious. All served with not much of a wait . After we ate I asked for the bill and was given the wrong one .
A lovely meal
