We have eaten at this restaurant on many occasions and have found that the food and the service were excellent.

Just enjoyed a delicious lunch at Liffiton Castle. They were incredibly busy with 2 large birthday groups as well as several smaller groups, yet the food was kept fresh and the dishes were continuously topped up. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. I thoroughly enjoyed my lunch and look forward to returning next time I am in Wanganui.
