The Gallery Restaurant has a large a la carte area, plus a section that can be used for individual private dining parties seating up to 20 people. The bar has been relocated to provide a welcoming lounge area for diners.

Flambe at the Sefton's Gallery RestaurantFirst opened in 2000, The Gallery is located on Harris Promenade, and is one of the Sefton’s biggest success stories. A wide selection of homemade dishes is enhanced through the use of high quality Manx produce, such as Loaghtan lamb.  The aim of the restaurant is to provide the full dining experience for guests, which also includes a Flambé service in the room.  Diners can also sample excellent homemade ice creams, including a number of interesting flavours.
