    A truly superb experience from beginning to end. The staff made us feel like royalty, the Afternoon Tea was absolutely delicious with our individual needs/tastes (likes & dislikes) catered for. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff & they were all helpful & friendly. We did not have to wait long for our sandwiches & cakes & anything we couldn't eat, we were able to take away with us. The restrooms were exceptionally clean & individual pristine white hand towels were available to use with a towel bin to place them in for washing. The dining area was impeccable, all areas spotless & the atmosphere was lovely & relaxing. We will definitely be making a return visit soon, we had a perfect afternoon. Thank you to all staff.

    We booked afternoon tea for five on Mother's Day, 26th March. The service was really good from start to finish, especially when we were leaving. My Mum wasn't feeling very well as she had a very painful ankle and couldn't walk. One of the staff members tried to get a taxi to come as close as possible to the restaurant but unfortunately couldn't locate one. He then helped my Mum to walk a couple of hundred yards down the road where I could pick her up in the car. I can't thank him enough for his help. The food was absolutely fabulous and beautifully presented, as was the champagne and made for a very enjoyable experience.
