Just hours left to vote for The Lake House Waterloo as Merseyside’s 'Hidden Gem'!

10 January 2024 3 min read

There is still a week to go to vote for the  Lake House in Waterloo in the Hidden Gems category of the Liverpool City Region Tourism Awards.


Presented annually, the awards reward excellence across the City Region’s tourism and hospitality sector. The ‘Hidden Gem’ category, sponsored by The Guide Liverpool, recognises the region’s ‘best kept secret.’

In the shortlisting, Lake House is described as ‘a stunning restaurant serving delicious, locally sourced menus at the water’s edge of the marine lake in Crosby.’


Sefton Hospitality Operations Limited and all The Lake House team are delighted at the news and are asking their guests and customers to spare a few minutes to vote for them at www.surveymonkey.com/r/HIDDENGEM2023.

Voting will close at midnight on Friday 12th January 2024. It’s one vote per person, but that doesn’t mean everyone in a party of happy customers can’t all vote.


Winners of the Hidden Gem award and all the other categories will be announced at the Liverpool City Region Tourism Awards ceremony at The Liverpool Cathedral on Thursday, 29th February.

Since it opened under SHOL’s management in August 2022, The Lake House has been a huge success. It is managed by Sefton Hospitality Operations Ltd (SHOL), a Sefton Council-owned, arm’s-length company.


Responding to announcement Cllr Marion Atkinson, Sefton Council Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Skills, said: “Congratulations to the company and to all the Team at The Lake House for making the shortlist, which is an achievement in itself!

“I have already voted for The Lake House and hope that the many people who have had a great time at The Lake House will take minute to do so too.”
