The restaurant is unusual in its design and layout with the kitchen completely open. The food was hot, served quickly and of a very high standard. There were 5 people in our group and all servings and courses were brilliant. A special "thank you" to our waiter Anthony.

We have eaten in the restaurant part of The Office twice now - both pre theatre meals. We enjoyed both of our visits. The food was very good indeed- flavoursome and well cooked. The portions were generous. The waiting staff were attentive and professional. We will return

Went with group of friends. The restaurant was told I didn't eat wheat but still sent bread with starter. Asked for dessert without biscuit, came with it and no fruit. Sent it back and was given it splattered upside down on plate. Staff were not helpful and didn't listen. Menu has no allergy information and has few options. Restaurant fine... More

I have had good and bad meals at The Office, if a set menu or a business occasion the food is very average. Eating off the menu the food is better. The decor and service are good, but there are less attractive venues in Southport serving better food.

Visited with girlfriends and had choice of 3 different menus. A la carte, 2 courses £14.95 or 2 courses £10 on Tuesday. Being thrifty we opted for last one which had a limited but varied choice. The portions were not huge and probably not enough for a man but plenty for girls. All very tasty and clean plates all round.... More
