Service was very fast and all staff were extremely friendly and attentive.
Seating could be improved comfort , space and privacy wise.
Music was mundane and repetitive.
Food was excellent in every Manor, taste, presentation and price.

Lovely food and sticky toffee was amazing . Only down fall was the seating I booked was lower and put on high stools. Love the interior design but the lighting was very dark.

Visited Lilys for the first time since covid arrived and we had a lovely night. Staff were friendly and attentive but drinks service was slow at times - it took over 20 min on one occassion to get our two drinks. Food was very good, we shared very tasty Cerdo Tostados for starters and each had the excellent Salmon Wellington with roast baby potatoes. We tried a number of cocktails - Whiskey Sour, Amaretto Sour, Pornstar Martini, Cosmopolitan and Old Fashioned - all of which were really good but my second Old Fashioned was not up to scratch and had to send it back. Overall a good night and we'll be back.

What a truly fantastic place to go. Whether it’s for something to eat, or just to sit down and have a few drinks.

All the staff that we encountered were extremely friendly and chatty, but also utterly professional.

The food was amazing, the setting was remarkable. It was our first time here, but will definitely not be our last

I would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone

Food and drinks were really good and price was good. But as the servers became more busy, you could tell they were under pressure and not very experienced. In particular, the poor drinks waiter didn’t know what was going on. I reckon it may have been more to do with him not paying attention rather than anything else. Overall, a great experience. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was lovely. Long live Lilly’s!

Food was good. Limited vegetarian options. We were forgotten about during a shift change and had to ask staff to come serve us twice, dessert was very dry (apple pie) over all ok but not sure it was worth the money we had to pay.

Beautiful food and ambience in lilys. Went here for my birthday last night (14th August). Food is fab, drinks were flowing. Service very good there were loads of people working. The only one little comment, there was not much of a gap between getting our chicken wings and our mains would have liked a bit more time for the food to digest. But fab night overall.

Enjoyable evening with good food and drinks. Steak was overpriced on the menu for a striplion but plenty to choose from.
We had a few cocktails however the taste was inconsistent. Staff were warm and welcoming.

Myself and my fiancé had a great experience eating here on a staycation- the food was fantastic, we had the bao buns, stir fry and loaded chips to share, plus sticky toffee pudding and baked Alaska. The cocktails were fabulous as well. The service was very good. I highly recommend Lily’s.
