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.

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.

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

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.

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
