“Never quite delivers”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013 via mobile

Had a go of the chocolate fountain! Shot glass and a marshmallow stick! Felt sick afterwards but that's not a reflection on the restaurant! I just ate too much!

The chocolate fountains are impressive and what I like is its kept really clean.

The staff are perhaps a little unenthusiastic about their job but they are polite

Drinks are expensive here. More pricey than the rest of liverpool

“Dissapointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2013

Considering the reputation Thorntons chocolate has, I ordered a hot chocolate with marshmallows and fresh cream. The experience will not be repeated. The drink was just about hot, it tasted very watery and I was glad to be on my way again. I will not be revisiting this place again. Shame really.

“Expensive and average”

Great Thorntons! Chocolate is used for hot chocolate etc but the pastries we had were average almost stale. Because its Thorntons more is charged. Ok but won't rush back

“Lovely rich food, if a bit busy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2013

Of course Thornton's chocolates are wonderful. The coffee and other hot drinks also good - very rich. This is better for morning coffee or afternoon tea. A meal would be expensive and hard on the waistline. The staff are very helpful but because it's popular there can be a long queue. Avoid during the Christmas rush.
