We had the most wonderful afternoon tea! The staff were pleasant , helpful , attentive and extremely well informed. The atmosphere in the lounge was relaxing and very enjoyable. Beautiful music provided by an extremely talented harpist.

    A 90th birthday Tea for my Mother.
    The staff were fantastic and laid on an extra birthday treat, with the Harpist playing Happy Birthday in the background. Magical.

    Fantastic - delicious food, impeccable service, lovely setting - a genuine 5 star experience. My favourite dish was a mini blueberry creme brulee served in an egg. We also loved the harpist who played throughout our meal.

    Came for afternoon tea it was lovely, The surroundings were beautiful and the tea was so much choice. We had to take 2 boxes of cakes home as we could not possibly eat them all. A wonderful experience. Was easy to book over the telephone.

    We really enjoyed afternoon tea. I think a first part like sandwiches were too much in order to finish everything.
