    Nice relaxing place. Extremely slow service. Should be more choice off cakes.

    My daughter and myself had a brilliant afternoon. It is nice and close to the shops and after a busy morning we walk in to a lovely welcome from the staff. The cocktail was chilled and lovely to sip while choosing which tea you would like, I had Dragon Flower it came in a glass teapot and you watch the flower open. The food was delicious We had an excellent tea.

    The staff were really lovely right from the start. The food was really tasty and the service just impeccable. They offered more, however we were so full there was just no room.

    Only have 2 gripes. 1. The boutique tearooms in the images looked amazing and was one of the reasons I chose this venue for a birthday treat, for the interior style and atmosphere. However the room we got put in was 1970's peach bland! No view, artwork or real atmosphere, so a bit disappointing from that respect. 2. The (room temperature) champagne was £17.00 per glass! I almost had a heart attack. Left a bit of a sour taste (no pun intended).
