    Great service, tea selection very good comfortable surroundings plus great view. Only disappointment ladies toilets, too small need more and a trek around the floor trying to find it!

  • ((((( 16 August 2018 by Louise from Daventry

    A beautiful location & view. Relaxed atmosphere, no rushing us through the meals and the service was excellent. I especially loved that if we wanted more of something on the afternoon tea menu that it wasn't a problem....we wanted more scones & clotted cream!

    Lovely afternoon tea, made special by a courtesy plate of chocolates for my wife's birthday. Greeted by charming staff and well looked after. Would recommend it.

    2 of us had Afternoon Tea and it was amazing we had a window seat too which made it more memorable as it was my friends 50th birthday treat

    I've been here for special occasions atleast 3 times now and I love it! The only negative comment I can leave is that the sandwich bread on some occasions isn't as fresh as you would expect but nevertheless, I always enjoy my visits, the staff are friendly and helpful and the food is great!

    I am disappointed in that you state that no trainers are allowed, as you rightly say, you like to keep a certain ' standard '. It is a special place and yet you allow customers to come in flip flops and shorts. Also people with buggies and babies and young children. I appreciate that it is difficult for you and you don't want to offend but it takes the 'special experience ' away from the venue. You also have mixed gender toilets. Not a good idea, as I do not want to go into a toilet that is swimming in water around the toilet where men have obviously missed the toilet.

    Shockingly insipid sandwiches and over creamy pastries. You pay for the view not the food. Surprised Shangri-La would go this way.. very disappointed

  • ((*** 7 June 2018 by Sarah from London

    Very disappointed. The venue is amazing but the staff let them down. Def not worth the money. We waited 20 mins before we were even offered a drink. If it hadn't had been a special occasion, I would have left.
