    Excellent service. Staff very friendly. Food very tasty

  • ((((( 30 May 2019 by Susan from Reading

    Afternoon tea with friends, to celebrate a 60th birthday, was a special treat for all of us. The whole experience was fabulous. The staff were very helpful and courteous, especially when dealing with our likes and dislikes.
    We were left to enjoy the experience in a relaxing way but always knowing staff were on hand to assist us.
    We will be back!

    Very disappointed with the taster menu. You shouldn’t have to wait for the pairing wine while the food is in front of you. For the price of the meal to chase and wait for this experience is not acceptable. I am
    Amazed at the star rating. The food was amazing and the wine too but the service is for a standard I would expect. I requested the taster meal and this was not noted. It was a special birthday and they did extra special treatment for other things

    We had a wonderful afternoon tea party . The staff placed us in a quiet room as requested where my dil could nurse her baby while enjoying an afternoon out. The service was excellent! We plan to attend again!

    The food was delicious and the atmosphere was lovely. Staff were welcoming and attentive. However, towards the end of our meal we ordered another round of drinks, we then waited 20 minutes and had to then order the drinks again as the order seemed to have been forgotten. Towards the end of our meal, the service became very slow. Considering the service charge was £21, I was surprised about this.
