    The restaurant building is now under renovation. All views are blocked. I can’t tell how it’s original look like. For food and drink, it is not well suitable for dairy allergies people. The afternoon tea in normal set is good to go. After requesting for allergy menu, it provided something not nice in colour and spicy sandwiches which made me drink more tea, and I finished my tea quite early and people were busy and hardly offer filling my tea. I really don’t enjoy the food in here. I don’t want to come back again.

    Four friends met to celebrate a birthday. The staff couldn’t have done more to make us feel special. Delicious sandwiches and yummy sweet treats. The ambience further enhanced with live music from a harpist. The Homage is an amazing place that comes highly recommended.

    Setting was beautiful and all staff were friendly and helpful throughout. Afternoon was delicious and fresh. A great day out with the family! The sandwiches were beautiful and the scones were warm. So much food for the price also.

    Staff were really friendly and helpful, offering to take pictures, engaging in conversation and describing the food we were having. All the food we had was fresh and tasted amazing. The champagne used was delicious and there was a wide range of tea. Only downside was that we had to keep asking for our 'free flowing' champagne to be topped up.

    Good friendly service. I specifically requested that we had a special birthday and no one brought out a little cake or candle which they had for another table despite them knowing about it and we waited and were disappointed and left. They took ages to clear up and did not ask if we wanted refills on our tea and too busy setting up tables. Food was good and catered for allergies.
