The Lake House: We tried out brunch at Crosby’s new waterfront venue and this is what we thought

If you’re looking for brunch with a view, great service and good food then take a trip to one of Crosby’s newest offerings.

The Lake House opened in August, following the multi-million-pound development at Crosby’s Lakeside Adventure Centre.

There is plenty of choice in Crosby and Waterloo when it comes to eating and drinking, so it needed to be something special to compete. We were keen to find out if it can do just that.

One thing you can’t argue with is the view on offer. 

You can watch water sport fans pottering about on the marina, kayaking and paddle boarding, while the sand dunes across the water lead to the beach and Antony Gormley’s famous Another Place iron men, if you fancy a walk before or after you eat.

The outdoor seating area includes a massive deck where you can soak up some autumn sunshine and dream of sipping a cold glass of something next summer.

And at just a short walk from Waterloo train station, this is a venue that’s easily reached if you aren’t lucky enough to live in this part of Merseyside.

So, location wise, you couldn’t ask for much more. But does the food and service match up?

We are happy to report that it does.

Professional and friendly staff are on hand to find you a great seat with a view and make sure you get answers to questions about the menu as well as the range of cakes on offer should you have any room left after brunch.

And what a lovely brunch it is.

We can highly recommend the pancakes with maple syrup. A very generous helping, actually too much to finish, which doesn’t happen very often. 

You also won’t go wrong if you opt for the smashed avocado and poached eggs on sour dough. Yes, it’s a brunch staple, but it was one of the best we’ve tried, and the chili flakes were a welcome addition. Again, it was a generous portion, and the eggs were cooked to perfection.

The latte had a great flavour and the tea comes in a lovely pot, which is always a nice nod to tradition.

Price wise, The Lake House is very standard, the avocado and eggs coming in at £7.50, the same price as the pancakes. And when you have a view like that to enjoy while you’re eating then it’s worth pushing the boat out for a treat, especially if the sun is shining and you can make the most of the autumn before we all retreat indoors.

When The Lake House was opened by Sefton Hospitality Operations Ltd, chair Kellie Rixon said they wanted it to be a venue that would help propel Waterloo and this area of the coastline into the national arena.

After our visit, we can’t see any reason why that ambition shouldn’t be realised. It really is a gorgeous building in a lovely setting, with great food and service.

And, we hear the Sunday lunch is a must, with two courses for £19.50. We will be returning to try it out and will report back!
