    Took my Mum for afternoon tea. Absolutely lovely, can't fault either the service of the food. Beautiful table settings and absolutely delicious cakes.?

    Very nice food but a special mention for the excellent service. A late train arrival meant we arrived much later than anticipated and well after the restaurant would usually stop serving. They showed remarkable patience and at no time did we feel rushed as a consequence of our lateness.

    Absolutely gorgeous food, a great value menu and great service from lovely staff. The rib eye was especially good.

    Thoroughly enjoyable with beautifully prepared food. The lady serving was excellent and gave us a short history of the House which was most welcome. It was so nice to have background music, often afternoon tea is in silence. Would definitely go again.
