    visited many times, standards have slipped, the food was very average, other patrons arriving in shorts and flip flops

    The ladies who had the normal afternoon tea were very pleased however the gluten free option was only ok. The sandwiches were fine however the scone was rock hard and although all the desserts were tasty it was not afternoon tea. I was only given one cake which was lovely but where were the other pastries? If I can make tasty soft pastries at home I would have thought your chefs would have been able to do better.
    Although I would recommend normal afternoon tea to a friend I will not be recommending it to my friends who are coeliacs

    Food was very good, but service was slow, waiting staff were friendly but there is a need for improvement. ie, we were not shown to our table and, had to open and pour our wine. We had to ask for water, all basic things to start and enhance the dining experience

    Disappointing. Have used the great house many times before. Front of house seemed uninterested. Wine not opened at the table. Coffee served plunged and unbrewed. Some of the meals lacked flavour. Left feeling disappointed.

    Booked here for my Husbands birthday and all I can say is WOW!!!! From being greeted on arrival, to the amuse bouche, the guinea fowl starter and the pork belly to the Welsh lamb rump all I have to say is perfection. We have been to many lovely restaurants and have to say this is right up there with them. If anyone is thinking about coming here don't think twice just go. 5 Stars!!!!!!!!!!!!!
