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.
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
We didn’t feel the atmosphere was relaxing, no back ground music and shoved back into an empty room. The tables were laid out in a way that was difficult to mix with the group. The food was nice but nobody was overly impressed unfortunately. For such a group we thought we’d be warmly welcomed also but we were not.
We had a lovely experience with the Kingsley for afternoon tea.. Staff were very friendly and accommodating, service was fantastic.
Beautiful setting and atmosphere, service was excellent from start to finsh
Excellent service and location, some of the gluten-free treats (mainly the sandwiches) were a bit dry to eat, would have also loved to have gotten some of the salmon that the non-gluten free people got. Very happy we got to take leftovers home though, for sure high value for money!
We had a lovely afternoon spent having afternoon tea, the food was beautifully presented and staff were lovely.Will definitely return.
We had afternoon tea for Mother’s Day. It was so lovely from start to finish. Great service, staff are so friendly and helpful and I think it’s great value for money too. We will be back :)
Was brought here by my daughter for aternoon tea for mothers day. We travelled down from Dublin and I found the the food was delicious but was very disappointed in the bland tea cups and tea pot. When you are paying 60 Euro for 2 you expect a special tea with nicer china. I also asked for no cucumber on the sandwiches which I asked the manager and yet there was cucumber on them. We just picked it of but it would have been nice if they actually checked and made sure which she didn't. Not worth the price due to lack of detail and wouldn't recommend this to anyone especially when you have been waiting for a special moment to do this experience.
Absolutely Fantastic service and amazing afternoon tea
Beautiful afternoon, service was fantastic and the food was delicious!
Fabulous afternoon, food was beautiful and lovely view
Lovely view out over the lee. Plenty of tea on offer, No rush. Great service.
Absolutely thrilled with our Afternoon Tea. All 6 of us were bowled over with the service and the food and the atmosphere - a lovely spot overlooking the river. We wold definately return and definately recommend.
Absolutely love staying here, my 2nd time to stay and definitely does not disappoint. Food, staff, rooms are excellent. Look forward to coming back in 2018.
afternoon tea was super. Totally relaxing and lovely quality of food. I was impressed with the flexibility of the meny
Have to say really enjoyed the experience of Afternoon Tea & they made a Happy Birthday plate for my friend as we were celebrating her belated day! Food was amazing & will be doing it again
The staff were very attentive and ensured we had plenty of hot drinks to go with our afternoon tea. The sweet and savoury food was delicious and we were able to take the leftovers away.
Very friendly and efficient staff. Afternoon tea was a lovely experience. Looking forward to a return visit.
We enjoyed afternoon tea for my friend's birthday. We were waiting quite a long time for the treats to be brought out to us. The scones seemed stale but everything else was delicious. It's quite expensive at €30 per person but as a treat every now & then it is lovely
The girl who served us was amazing , would be nice if afternoon tea was in a bit of a separate area but other than that
We had a fabulous time, very relaxing space, beautiful food 😊
