    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.

    Lovely dining room, knowledgeable and very friendly staff who could answer any question. The food was delicious, personal highlights were the sandwiches, the scones were amazing and so were the macarons I would have liked another cake feature as the Eclair was good but the other sweet item let the plate down. Still you could have more of what you wished and the drinks were excellent food choice of teas and bar choices. A wonderful afternoon that stretched into the evening easily!

    Very expensive for what we got. Have cheaper afternoon tea which were a lot nicer. Cakes were very sweet and could eat them all, only a small selection too. Scones were undercooked.

    From getting out of the car through to eating the whole experience was amazing. This was probably the best service I have experienced and was perfect for the romantic date. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food was great. The decor is funky and very modern.

    It was a busy evening, and our small party group didn't get the most prompt attention. We were put in a smaller room which was pleasant enough but right in front of a fire which wasn't really necessary. Service was good but not excellent, food was good but with not excellent - with one apple and blackberry dessert was excellent. I expected excellence across the board so came away slightly disappointed. I think they probably do better most of the time, just not on this occasion.
