  • First time using membership lucky enough to use their mobility soother scheme. We've had a lovely couple of hours walking the main route round the gardens. Grandaughter(4 yrs)loved the open space collecting leaves for her autumn book!! Great to be outdoors in lovely surroundings. We will definitely be coming back for regular visits.
  • Lets start with the cafe excellent menu and the staff are very attentive. Moving on the grounds what can l say loads to see and take in. Well worth a visit. Ask anybody who is a member there and there are a lot of them.
  • A wonderful botanic garden owned by the University of Liverpool. Many rare trees and plants on show. The cafe is very pleasant with waiter/waitress service. There is an entrance fee for adults to the grounds, but if you're likely to visit four or more times a year, then annual 'Friends of Ness Gardens' membership is good value.
  • The gardens were wonderful considering the time of year. The cafe was desperately disappointing. There was no proper cutlery or crockery and the food was below the usual standard. Surely a dish washer could have been hired within 1 hour.
  • Went for lunch with my sister lovely food good menu my sister asked for a cold drink our server reeled off very quickly the choice my sister has Alzheimer's and unable to take it all in I reassured her and said go and have a look I advised our server of my sister's condition and her demeanour change she became sensitive to my sister and her needs her speech was softer and she was very patient not sure if the staff have had any training in the subject of dementia but well done
