About The K Lounge and The Fairbanks
The K Lounge is our relaxed lobby venue perfect for catching up over a coffee, having a light lunch or in-between snack, or enjoying a classic Afternoon Tea in the sparkling light reflected from the river. - See more at: http://www.thekingsley.ie/the-k-lounge/#sthash.BuWJ65uk.dpuf
The chic Fairbanks Restaurant at The Kingsley is so named in a nod to the famous Cork ballad ‘The Banks of My Own Lovely Lee’, a song beloved by Corkonians which celebrates the beauty of the city and its river. A sophisticated and elegant space in which to spend time over a leisurely and enjoyable meal nestled in the heart of this four star hotel in Cork, Fairbanks is where our Executive Chef Gary Burke gets to indulge his most creative side. - See more at: http://www.thekingsley.ie/fairbanks-restaurant/#sthash.WYQ4tT5y.dpuf
Afternoon Tea is served in the K Lounge from 1.30pm-5pm daily & should be pre-booked to avoid disappointment.
The staff were helpful and kind
When we sat down at our table, we didn’t get the menu and we have to ask what tea selections were available and the lady who was serving us wasn’t really helpful. We also noticed fingerprint marks on our glasses and the plates and tea pots were quite dirty with some stains on them. I don’t think this is acceptable. Overall, the food was okay and worth the money but there is a room of improvement needed in terms of the service and the cleanliness. Thank you.
I had afternoon tea at the kingsley on Saturday. While the food was lovely we were freezing where we were sitting, I said it 3 times and no attempt to move us somewhere warmer. I also had to call the girl twice to refill our teapots. Very bad service and a bad experience. We stayed for a dew drinks - towards the end of the night there was a bad smell in the bar, similar to a blocked toilet or something. I was ooking forward to visiting the hotel as I had never been but I wont be back in a hurry.
Lovely spot for afternoon tea! Would highly recommend!!
Fabulous from start to finish. A real 5* experience. Staff kept topping up tea and coffee,they were truly attentive. Excellent experience and beautiful views of the river.
Lovely afternoon tea - very relaxed, food and service excellent

We enjoyed every minute of this fab afternoon. We were really looked after during our time here. Defo will be back again 😀

Staff are very accomodating and friendly
Excellent afternoon tea, fab area, very attentive staff and plenty of food and drinks
Lovely afternoon had by us all. Helpful, friendly staff made our family afternoon tea even nicer.
Excellent hotel and restaurant. Lovely settings. Felt a little rushed by waitor at the beginning. Overall the price for the food & service was about right.
We were served by a polish waitress with brown hair. The afternoon tea was good however the unprofessional of the waitress who served us was unacceptable. I paid at the till with the manager. As we left the hotel the waitress shouted across "girls you have to pay" I found this very embarrassing as other customers were staring. This experience would stop me from paying €60 again for afternoon tea
Afternoon tea - the food was nice but no atmosphere & too expensive for just food alone!!
Beautiful food.. lovely view. Very welcoming... but a bit pricey at 30 per person.
Staff are wonderful made my daughter's birthday so special she will never forget. All staff made a fuss of her and we're so helpful so thank you
Lovely relaxed atmosphere
The food was excellent. Loads of treats and plenty of hot drinks. We werent rushed and the staff were so nice. Lovely white linen on the table. Would definately recommend here to my friends and hope to return.
L ovely staff and food and venue
Great afternoon tea with lovely choice and endless supply of tea/coffee. Really enjoyable afternoon!
The afternoon tea was a surprise for my partner and we had a fantastic experience and our server Julieanne was a delight to deal with. I would highly recommend to everyone . We will definitely be returning for this 5 star experience.
My friends and I were so thrilled with our afternoon tea experience on Sunday last. There were 11 of us in total and everyone commented on the quality of the food and how pleasant our waitresses were. We are so grateful for your 5 star treatment; the ladies in our party are sleep deprived mamas of young kids so it was so lovely to be looked after by some one else for change! We will definitely be back.
Fantastic time every time my friend and I go to the Kingsley. The service from the staff is excellent, they're very helpful and friendly. I love the variety of food and drinks available.
Really enjoyed the atmosphere and relaxing in the lounge for afternoon tea which looked very impressive with a lot of variety. However I was ordering from the lunch menu and while staff were very accommodating towards my dietary needs as there was nothing on the menu I could really eat I had to ask for a salad to be made up, which was also lovely and it was no issue having this made up, but I felt that €15.50 was a lot to charge for a bit of chicken and some salad leaves. Otherwise a very nice experience at your hotel
