With a party of ten to feed with an age range of 18 to 85 the staff coped extremely well. Being our first visit following a recommendation, not one of the family were disappointed. What took us all back was the superb variety on the menu which catered for all occasions. There was a general consensus that you had to... More

Brilliant! Catering for 23 guests and meals all arriving at the same time. No need to preorder and nothing too much trouble. Well stocked bar (it needed to be!) and competent staff mixing cocktails. Sally kept her team working exceptionally well and the whole evening was memorable for all the right reasons. All the guests commented positively about the venue... More

We recently ate with friends at the Portrait House during a visit to Hoylake. The menu was varied, and the food was beautifully presented, delicious, and served by charming, helpful waitresses. My husband loved the pork medallions and my salmon dish was cooked the just way I like it with the fish not being over-cooked. The portions of vegetables and... More

I went with friends recently and we had a delightful evening, service was first class, the food was amazing, and the atmosphere in the bar and restaurant... More

I was taken here by friends as I'm currently visiting from Australia. Trying to decided what to choose from the menu was extremely difficult (but pleasurable). None of us were disappointed when the desicions had been made and our meals arrived. Starters and mains were excellent and we even made room for dessert. Service was excellent even though the restaurant... More

This visit was to enjoy the competion meal from the Portrait House's nominated entry for the above competition. The whole occasion was most enjoyable and the staff work well to provide excellent service. We have been on other occasions and been equally impressed.
