    Excellent. The staff were very accommodating & friendly. The food was delicious & freshly made! The location is amazing - seeped in history & very well worth the visit! Thank you :)

    We arrived on time for our 1.00pm meal and were shown to a table. We ordered (1 starter, 4 main course), the starter arrived about 1.20pm. At about 1.35pm, a staff member advised there would be a delay, as a large party had arrived (no priority for diners who had already started their meal, we were aware of others subject to this delay). The main courses arrived just after 2.00pm, the vegetarian option was inedible, its sweetness made it more like a dessert - we were refunded for this. The desserts were acceptable. The bad service let the whole meal down. It seemed that large parties threw the whole system into chaos.

    The service was very very slow, we waiting over a hour for any food to arrive, after asking two different members of staff to advise when our order would arrive. The staff did apologise and we got our adult drinks for free and some members of our party were given a bottle of wine to take home, although an additional bottle for the other party members would have been nice as we were all affected. Once food arrived it was very nice, but not worth the hour wait, we were then left for over half an hour after we had finished our meal with no one clearing our table and offering desserts, by which time we had had enough of the waiting around and we asked for the bill without having any desserts which we would have liked but didn't want to sit round for another hour. The bill also then had a drink on there that we hadn't ordered and we had highlighted previously as being not our order when it was brought to our table, so we had to faff having that taken off the bill, which should have already been done. I was going to speak again with a member of staff bit there appeared to be a number of unhappy customers milling around and I just paid and left, with the intention of emailing you. On a separate note, we were also 45 minutes late getting in to see Santa, who was fabulous and worth the wait, but I feel this on top of the poor service in the restaurant made for a very very disappointing afternoon.

    We booked afternoon tea for my Mother in Laws 60th birthday as a treat from our daughter. Pre-booking was easy and when I contacted the restaurant after booking to add a high chair the reply was swift; the request wasn't added to the booking though so we had to ask for a high chair when we arrived anyway.

    The restaurant was very busy and they were obviously struggling to keep up. We waited almost 15 minutes to be asked what drinks we'd like and only received our food (which as we'd pre-booked and paid a deposit should have been ready) after I spoke to one of the waitresses at the 45 minute mark. The apology was muttered by one of the waitresses but even then we had to ask for more drinks etc as they just didn't seem to be on the ball.

    The food itself was fine and my last minute request to add a vegetarian options was dealt with fine; though when is Tuna a vegetarian option?!

    Generally, we felt a bit letdown. Obviously in December you expect a wait but we were completely forgotten when in reality we should have been an easy table to get in and out and make their lives easier! We weren't the only ones to have issues either.

    I would be very wary of booking here again at a busy time!

    The food was well presented and the staff were quite attentive. The Restaurant was cold to the extent that people were eating with coats on. We had Christmas lunch- a shame that the turkey was not from a freshly cooked turkey rather than a turkey roll.

    Really enjoyed our vist and enjoyed our meal in the restaurant. The food was excellent and well presented which was served to our table by very polite and friendly staff. Whilst in the restaurant we also felt that we were not rushed to finish our meals.
