    This was one of the best afternoon teas I have ever had. The restaurant was beautiful and the service was outstanding. There was regular refills of tea, with a good selection of leaves. The scones were the best I have tasted. There was a lovely selection of sandwiches and delicious cakes. The glass of Prosecco was so refreshing. Overall it was such good value for the price we paid. Definitely returning. Thank you Bookatable!

    Afternoon tea was lovely and excellent service from our waiter. Value for money only thing to highlight was the limited option of sandwich fillings. It’s to an acquired taste
