    The Xmas Afternoon Tea was delightful. Wonderful and delicious food and the service was exceptional. A real treat as I'm Vegan and the Tea Service was also.

    Truly a blissful eating experience. It has been a while since I have given the time to eat and eat more in my own sweet time. The ambience was pleasant and nice. The lady and gentleman who helped sort our table and explained in detail the dishes etc and were patient. We loved all the items on the menu ( more sweet than savoury though). The food and the teas/coffees were of exceptional standards.

    Wonderful vegan restaurant, some in our group had afternoon tea and others a la carte and we all loved the food. Great setting, great friendly service, vegan scones are to die for. All in all 10 out of 10

    We ate afternoon tea - and enjoyed the best vegan sandwiches ever, delicious warm scones and unlimited tea and coffee. Service was leisurely - luckily we weren't in a rush. The only let-down was the cakes served as a finale. They just didn't live up to the rest of the food, sadly. I'd give the whole experience 8 out of 10.
