Short selection on menu. But should be something to suit all tastes. Reasonable price for 3 courses. Service good. Quality of food at a good level. Would visit again
Immediately made to feel very welcome. Food was delicious! Wife is still talking about the chocolate fondant! Staff were incredibly friendly, and the atmosphere was very cosy and intimate.
Was really looking forward to the lighthouse following some good recommendations but think we must have gone on a severely off day. The staters were really nice, both enjoyed them waiting for our main. We were both served what could only be described as a warmed up roast dinner, tough beef with microwaved roast potatoes, the trimmings were nice but anyone can cook carrot, swede and red cabbage. Gravy was delicious though. Desserts were ok but nothing to get overly excited over. Really disappointed overall given the recommendations we had been given, if you want something as nice for less than the price go to Spire.
A memorable dinner out is the result of a combination of excellent service, a superb wine selection, stunning ambience and gourmet cuisine. Dining at The Lighthouse Restaurant goes beyond this formula by offering guests a truly relaxed setting, where they can unwind and refresh without any feeling of pretension or judgement. It’s this welcoming atmosphere that sets this restaurant in Hale apart from the rest, and is one of the many reasons why so many Liverpool residents prefer travelling to The Lighthouse Restaurant than eating somewhere closer to home.
Chef patron David Mao is a perfectionist when it comes to the food he and his kitchen crew produce. From start to finish, Mao aims to please, hooking his diners with the first course and providing a grand finale with his incredible gourmet desserts. The Lighthouse Restaurant offers guests a choice to either order from their a la carte menu, or to design their own two- or three-course – the latter choice is undoubtedly the best. Recommended dishes include starters like the chicken liver and foie gras parfait with elderflower jelly and Lighthouse toasted brioche, mains such as the roasted rump of Cheshire lamb, and the deconstructed rhubarb and custard for dessert. Reservations are an absolute must for The Lighthouse Restaurant on Hale’s Ivy Farm Court.
