    Lovely place
    Afternoon tea was a very bland and unimaginative . For the money scotch eggs or quiche would have been nice. The scones were very stale! Hurt my teeth

    Ladies Afternoon Tea
    Welcoming and attentive staff. Food of good standard, though bavarois 'over sweet' and lacking in vanilla flavour. Jam not to the standard of Great John St Hotel (sister hotel). Meringue over sweet. Banquet corner seating appeared cosy...however not particularly comfortable. Separately, arrangement of tables in tavern meant guests [on other tables] were in close proximity and overlooking our corner table.....this occurred during the afternoon tea and not possible in the middle of the afternoon tea to 'up root' to other table. Nevertheless, generally the food of a standard that was both varied and of good quality. Not adding a service charge was a plus...leaving customer to make decision re tipping.

    Delicious food, a beautiful building and attentive staff. The wine list was bit pricey, but otherwise the meal was perfect.

    Fabulous afternoon tea for Mother's Day. Only thing was that they had no record of my phone call changing 2 to gentleman's tea. After a bit of to and froing we were offered a round of drinks due to the wait but then they were added to the bill! They were removed when I challenged but it was not good to have to challenge.
