“Over all there are a lot better places  To eat that are more welcoming.”
Reviewed 20 May 2012 via mobile

we had the £15 banquet for 8 of us, service was quite quick, 
we where still eating the prawn
Crackers as they where banging into us
And Taking them away.
Same with the main course, they asked
Has everyone finished and started
Removing plates but 2 of us where still
Eating. 
Soup bland. Ribs poor quality.
We asked for a drinks tab, but they 
Demand money from you there and
Then, also have to ask for Glasses,
They just bring the small bottles of 
Beer over to you.
Main courses was ok, but One
Chicken meal you could taste the 
Gluten.
Desert, blob of ice cream and  squirty
Whipped cream with a small battered
Apple, not my bag.
Upstairs had a hen party going on
They sounded that they had fun but music from upstairs was pounding out
And they where playing different 
Music downstairs, so there where 
Beats everywhere, 
When the entertainer upstairs started singing
He certainly cleared them out and
Once he had emptied them out he 
Came downstairs and did the same 
To us, could be a ploy to remove 
Everybody.
We asked about the bill, we think 
There was a discrepancy on there,
And their customer relations went 
Right down the pan.
Over all there are a lot better places 
To eat that are more welcoming.
I would give it 2 out of 5

“what a fantastic evening!”
Reviewed 29 April 2012

If ever you are travelling near Southport make sure you visit Lings. The food is excellent and great value for money. We travelled from Nottingham and were recommended to visit. We were not dissapointed . The banquet menu was superb. Being only a couple the evening meal normally finishes quite early. Not at Lings!. When the meal finished the music started with Ling serenading us all. After being given fancy hats to wear the whole restaurant was offered to sing on the kareoke machine . What a fantastic evening of entrrtainment, We will definately visit again when in the area
