    Fabulous afternoon tea in lovely surroundings. Lots of variety and different things on offer. Mini burger very tasty followed by wraps. A lovely smoothie in cute little bottle and gorgeous meringue topped with mango and passion fruit. Great service. A definite must do for afternoon tea fans.

    I booked the Meal for a Birthday Celebration and previously requested a candle in the cake, which was not met. Although the service was decent, there was moments where all the staff were in the back, which wasn't very helpful if we wanted to order more drinks. As a customer who spend £113, I do not feel the atmosphere was up to standard (e.g. No music, or particularly friendly staff) the food -although nice, was not worth the amount I spent on it, and the service was not excellent. Overall I will not be dining here again, will be looking else where, where I can getting better value for money with a good vibe and experience.

    Arrived 30 minutes early and they were able to seat us with no problems. Food was very tasty and a good selection (went for the afternoon tea) for vegetarian and non-vegetarian.

    We had afternoon tea at Chez Mal. Lovely food,fantastically presented & a nice modern take on a traditional afternoon tea. The burger was particularly good. Was a nice touch to have unlimited tea & coffee and to not have to stick to your original order. We also had cocktails and the mojitos were amazing. All staff friendly & attentive, will certainly use again.

    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.
