    Food was average. Slow service. Waited a good 15/20 minutes before even getting our drinks. The afternoon was 'okay.' Nothing special.

    The service was poor. The staff were not attentive. My party had to wait over 5 minutes before anyone approached us to ask if we needed help. We were not offered a variety of teas with our afternoon tea, just tea or coffee. Atfer the food was brought out we didn't see a member of staff for the next 2 hours we were there apart from when we went looking for someone for more tea. Very disappointing and not what i have come to expect from previous visits.

    Arrived to be told table wasn't ready and that a table of 24 had "just turned up so our food would be late" 3.30 booking of an afternoon tea. We sat down at 3.35, drinks came at 4pm and then didn't get served food till 4.30. We had to wait a whole hour for some sandwiches and a few cakes all of which would be been prepared beforehand. We had booked it for a 5yr olds birthday treat and they would of been aware of this hence why I had also booked a "princess afternoon tea" yet making a 5yr old wait an hour for food is disgraceful. It did not have everything that it said it would contain on the menu either. All in all I will NEVER recommend nor return to this establishment again.

    We had afternoon tea on NYE. It was £15 a person and I wouldn't say it was worth it. We were disappointed with the afternoon tea and won't be returning. The selection was ok but nothing special.

    The afternoon was a great success and the staff were so attentive and pleasant. On my one criticism was that the scones were rather dry but we still enjoyed the occasion.
