It is some years since we visited Hoylake & in the interim it seems to have developed some nice trendy places to eat. The Portrait House fits the mould perfectly, trendy well presented venue for groups or couples. The menu is extensive and well priced something for all tastes. The service was OK not great but the food was good... More

I've been here previously this year and found the food to be average but not excellent as some other reviews may suggest. I had asparagus tempura for starters that was ridiculously over priced for the quantity and quality of the dish. For my main course I chose the mushroom burger with sweet potato fries as I fancied something hearty, yet... More

The food was beautifully presented and tasted wonderful. All the staff were very attentive and pleasant. I was very impressed with having a vegetarian menu to choose from and loved the asparagus tempura. My partner enjoyed his steak and my wild mushroom tart was fabulous. Many Thanks to The Portrait House for a wonderful night.

Me and my husband took our 11yr old son here for lunch after we'd been the cinema, we worried a bit that he wouldn't like anything as he's not yet an adventurous eater (think Subway being as exotic as it gets) to our surprise he ordered the same as me & hubby (fillet medallions, black pudding in creme mustard sauce)...

We arrived hot, slightly grumpy, and quite late, not really knowing what to expect, but were very pleasantly surprised. The waiting staff were attentive, efficient and friendly, with service at a good pace. The meal was good to very good, with the added touch of lots of beautifully cooked vegetables to accompany our main course. The smoked mackerel fish cakes... More

i was in liverpool early and was really in need of something big and tasty for breakfast. The Portrait House looked inviting and after seeing on the outside menu that they did a cooked breakfast i decided i would try it. The waitress was really nice and welcoming and the building itself was lovely. I decided on the light breakfast... More

Have visited the Portrait House on several occasions, having a different vegetarian dish each time (they have a separate veggie/vegan menu) and have only experienced a meal that wasn't absolutely incredible once. The choice is excellent and you can tell they select their ingredients carefully to create the best flavours. It is very pricey so sadly only really go when... More

I've been two times to the portrait house now. The first visit I was blown away, we were the only customers in there but we did go in after lunch and before dinner time. So would expect everywhere to be quiet. Each time I have been I've ordered exactly the same meals. Fish cakes to start with and fillet medallions... More

An excellent restaurant with a delightful ambience. The staff were welcoming and attentive. The menu was extensive and had dishes with an unusual twist. The steaks were "to die for!"

I have had a drink here a few times when visiting Wirral. Always seemed busy and from what I saw the food looked pretty good. I was staying at a hotel nearby and decided to eat out. It was a Wednesday evening and there was only two other people in the restaurant. The greeting was off putting to say the... More
