    Delightful afternoon tea experience. The children really loved trying different teas and lovely scones in particular.

    very relaxing and stylish atmosphere. smelled wonderful. lovely music. very good selection of teas. food was just ok, especially the cakes are too creamy and heavy. They were happy to give a refill of tea and jam for the scones but not of sandwiches (we asked for just one more). Waitresses were nice but not so attentive. The afternoon tea is a bit pricy for what they give, but I would definitely recommend this tea room for a tea break or cream tea.

    I pre booked this Tea room online and I filled out the dietary section as I am a vegetarian and can’t eat eggs. When I arrived and told them that I had pre booked (well in advance) they hadn’t arranged anything for my dietary needs, which seem silly asking the question in the first place. The standard of the food was average, the cream on my wife’s gateau was synthetic, and at the price we paid, I would of thought that the standard would of been higher. The waitress was very polite and did everything that she could to help. Wouldn’t recommend
