First visit to Southport in years with some trepidation based on recent media coverage. However, this was unwarranted. Afternoon tea at Lilibets was excellent, the food, service and surroundings were all outstanding I would recommend this establishment without reservation. Enjoy.

I have reviewed this quaint little cafe before when I had enjoyed my visit. Unfortunately on the last visit in early October it was rather disappointing. There are 5 of us friends who meet together and had previously been here. This time, as before, when...More
