    Excellent attention to detail, excellent food and it was so nice to have other savouries rather than just sandwiches. Our favourite was the little quiches.

    Lovely ambience in a small cosy room with about 5 tables. Beautiful period decor. Great attentive service but not overdone. Delicious food and offers to bring more if we wanted, but there was loads to eat already! A nice variety with some unusual mini desserts e.g. apricot doughnut. Everything was very fresh.

    The booking for afternoon tea was a treat from my Son for myself and my daughter. The whole experience lived up to expectorations and was a real treat. The staff were helpful and friendly, the dining room was comfortable and had just the right ambience for afternoon tea. Our tea was beautifully served and presented and was just right. There was plenty to eat and nothing was too much trouble for the gentleman who served us, I believe his name was Caesar. All in all a lovely afternoon experience and one we will probably repeat.
