Lovely setting and delicious afternoon tea. Could not fault the food or the service. We loved it and will be back in the future. Nothing was too much trouble even for our vegetarian - everyone was catered for. Thank you.

    It was more than I expected - the afternoon tea lovely and as it was well worth the money. I have tried a few afternoon teas and this one far exceeded the others and was much better value for money. Our special requests were catered for with patience and service was prompt.

    Friendly staff. Delicious afternoon tea with lovely prosecco. Food very tasty and variety was different to a lot of afternoon teas which was a pleasant change.

    The food was lovely especially the bruschetta and the dessert with blueberry (gold) the scones were amazing too. The service was very good friendly and catered well for my young daughter. Lovely venue would definitely recommend.

    Afternoon tea was lovely

  • ((((( 2 May 2017 by Sophia Anderson from Northampton

    We had an afternoon tea for 3 people which was lovely,
    First they bring out the sandwiches and odd savouries & when you are finished, you are served with a selection of cakes.
    Varieties of tea's available in lovely colourful china and a glass of Prosecco or Pimm's was very refreshing

    Please do not expect a large room, it is very small & cosy, with a lovely atmosphere.
