    All excellent. The setting, staff, food and atmosphere were wonderful. It was a birthday present for my mother and she was thrilled and would love to go again which is always a good sign.
    The only thing (and it's such a small thing I hesitate to mention it) is that we all would have preferred skimmed milk in our tea due to various health issues. Semi-skimmed was offered immediately and other dietary requirements checked so that was ok.
    We loved the setting and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The food was marvellous with plenty of it so we had to take home what we couldn't manage in the boxes provided. Highly recommended for a wonderful welcoming experience from all the staff in the hotel that we spoke to as well as the staff in the conservatory.

    Nice setting in the conservatory. Pleasant young girl serving. Food delicious. When my cousin managed to flag down the young girl and request more water the waitress brought the jug, filled the glass and left, my glass was almost empty but she didn't think to offer. Our plates were then cleared away and no one returned. After quite a wait we decided to abandon dessert and my cousin went off to find the waitress to reqest coffee. The tea and coffee duly arrived and the girl vanished again. When we decided to leave we again hung about until the girl reappeared and we went to her service point to get a bill. More training required! The restaurant was less than 25% occupied.

    I've been here three times now but this time it wasn't as good as the first I had fluff on my cake due to it being tea towl to dry the fat off

    A pleasant experience overall, although we felt very rushed despite it not being a very busy day. The afternoon tea was tasty, but we were not offered further refreshment. A little disappointing as it was a return visit, we had high expectations after such a lovely time before, but overall pleasant.

    I cannot complement the staff enough. We were early but made to feel welcome to explore the grounds and hotel. The food was delicious and service fantastic!

    Took the family for lunch in the conservatory and all enjoyed, we had two small children with us who felt totally at home and they even made a bed from chairs and cushions for the three year old to sleep. Lovely surroundings, we didn't have afternoon tea but I could see it coming out and I will definitely go back to sample.

    Afternoon tea booked for my daughters 30th Birthday ... Waitress was so attentive and accommodating. All dietary needs were addressed and provided for and nothing was too much trouble. A wonderful venue for a special occasion. Food was delicious.

    Fantastic setting for my Grandmothers 80th birthday. The lunch menu was terrible for such a setting, although the food was very good. Unfortunately, the service was so bad it overshadowed the whole meal.
    No drinks on arrival, even after asking twice. Orders taken wrong multiple times, attitude from one of the staff, items forgotten and chased up and the party generally forgotten about during a very quiet lunch service.
