The afternoon tea was excellent. We also enjoyed the fact that we were not rushed and could sit, chat and eat in our own time.

    First time dining here but very often dineat similar restaurants in the area (OPUS,BANK). First, my confirmed booking wasn't on the system but this was quickly resolved. Positives - Very Helpful Waiter, Stylish Décor and Ambiance, Drinks Menu extensive and well made. Birthday Plate and Glass of Prosecco provided FOC as it was a birthday meal. Negatives - Unacceptably long waits in between courses and for drinks to be delivered to table, even though restaurant was mostly empty (at 6.30pm),The food, whilst technically well prepared, didn't live up to the promise of the description - it was fairly bland in taste, and, in some cases, just not hot enough (Complained and Waiter Apologised), At £7.50, the chocolate fondant was the smallest I've ever had.
    The bill for 2, with a few drinks was £118. Overall, have to say, I feel a little deflated. Have spent a similar amount many times in other locations but never felt quite so underwhelmed as this. Perhaps we just dined on a poor day, as the setting and friendliness of the staff were first class. Perhaps will give it another try, but only if most of the other options were exhausted.

    Food great, service not so. Staff were unsure of deal or what was included.

    Afternoon tea for my birthday...fantastic quality and value. Only down side I had just got over a cold I asked the staff if they could turn the air con down as It was blowing cold and they said they had no control over changing it.... within an hour of leaving my cold was back with a vengeance. Which has spoilt what was a great afternoon.

    Very poor service, Menu was very misleading on the meal deal and staff didn't know anything about it. However meal was good.

    The restaurant was really nice with lovely decor. The staff were very welcoming and accommodating, they even gave my sister a lovely extra dessert as we went for her birthday. The food was amazing couldn't fault it, it was freshly made. My first afternoon experience was brilliant.
