    Lovely afternoon tea experience. We appreciated the complimentary champagne since we were on our honeymoon

    Reservation in the restaurant for Valentine's day dinner: Great menu, all was delicious with a perfect service. The "homemade crab cake" starter was a delight. The restaurant is a very nice place especially in the veranda. Last but not least, our favorite white wine was available in the wine card (Paco & Lola, albarino).

    The afternoon tea itself was good. But the overall experience was not to be repeated. I booked the experience on line and tried to also pay online, but I was told I either sent a photocopy of my debit card or come in and pay. No other option! What century is this place in. This was a gift for good friends and I didn't want them being landed with the bill. I then had to take time off work to travel into London to pay for the experience in person. The hotel staff basically told me that everyone complains about this and there is nothing they can do (they were very dismissive) while I was paying the lady serving me wandered off!!!! I had to go looking for her as I had my train to catch to be in time to pick my son up from childcare. As said, not an experience to be repeated, very very disappointed
