    Overall, our experience wasn't the best I'm afraid. We booked afternoon tea as a special occasion to treat my Mum who was visiting for the weekend. We arrived a few minutes after the time we had booked and the staff were still setting the tables and seemed a bit surprised by our arrival. Once we sat down, we were not given any menus to explain what we would be getting for afternoon tea.

    Again, once the sandwiches and cakes arrived, the waiter did not explain what was on the sandwiches or what the cake selection was (some were obvious, but it nice for this to be explained).

    It took a while for us to get the attention of the waiter to ask for the bill and when we asked to take away some of the cakes, he handed us a box rather than offering to do this himself. I am therefore disappointed in the overall experience as at over £20 per person for tea and cake this is not cheap.

    The room and the music was nice and I can imagine that if the service had of been better this could've been a much better experience.

    Wonderful afternoon tea. Perfect sandwiches. Relaxed unstuffy atmosphere. Will definitely go again.
