Afternoon tea was delicious. The scones were warm with lashings of cream and jam. Lemon curd was a thoughtful extra and the cakes were melt in the mouth .

Elegant surroundings and friendly staff. The cakes were delicious and more than enough to take some home with us.

Came here for afternoon tea for my 30th and it was without doubt the best afternoon tea I’ve ever had. The sandwiches were fine, but the homemade scones and cakes really stole the show - and this is coming from someone who normally prefers savoury. The tea selection was amazing and the service was spot on! Thanks guys!

The staff had great attention to detail. They were very knowledgeable about allergies to dairy. My two kids were given colouring in. The food was excellent. Very happy to have a fine dining experience while also with my kids. The burger and fish and chips were excellent. Kids loved the mac and cheese and said it was the best ever. They wanted to go back as did I.

We had a wonderful meal at Arbor, starting with a drink in the bar where we enjoyed cocktails and perused the menu. Our order was taken whilst we relaxed, ahead of being shown to the table - a nice touch so we weren't hurried to finish our drinks.
We chose Crab Mayonnaise and the Soup of the Day (Cream of Mushroom), both of which were delicious, before moving onto the duck and lamb respectively. The duck was full of flavour, the dumpling light & fluffy, whilst the lamb was juicy, beautifully accompanied by the buttered new potatoes & spring greens. We chose the recommended Yealand's Pinot Noir and finished with the Strawberry Baked Cheesecake.
The entire meal was lovely, the service friendly and welcoming. We would highly recommend a visit.
