    The Afternoon Tea was a gift to a dear friend who was retiring.
    My friend greatly enjoyed my gift to her.
    The venue was perfect. I had forgotten to mention my friend used crutches and we were asked if we would like our tea downstairs but my friend insisted on going upstairs and immediately a member of staff followed behind her to ensure she did not have an accident on the stairs. This was very considerate and of course made her feel much safer.
    The service, the afternoon tea, it's contents were all superb.

    We enjoyed our experience very much, especially the attention the staff gave to our wide eyed American visitor! We had ordered a birthday cake too, so we would have appreciated a few more savoury items and a few less sweet ones. When the cake appeared we literally could not eat it, but we were able to take it home. Some light music, a piano player may be, would have added to the atmosphere of the occasion, especially as we paid a good price. It was inconvenient that the ladies loo was so far away from the restaurant. The staff kindly let me use the gents nearby as I was using sticks to walk. We appreciated the time to wander around the grounds and to admire the beautiful white peacock.
