We had booked for afternoon tea and understood that gluten free options were available and the menu stated the same. When we came to order we were told that gluten free options were not available and that we should have pre-booked for this option. Disappointingly, this meant that we decided not to have afternoon tea and had desserts instead. So it was not quite the experience we had envisaged.

The indoor area is not particularly nice but not awful. I would suggest to wait the summer as the outdoor part is super nice. We tried the vegan afternoon tea which is 35GBP per person. It was very disappointing, except one sandwich and 1 pastry which was good, the rest was really not good. This is a shame, as we were really looking forward to it, and finding a good vegan pastry place, but we were very disappointed. Especially at that price... It is way too over priced for the quality of the food (I have not tried the normal menu though).

Lovely staff and ambience. I was a little disappointed by the afternoon tea. It looked amazing but tasted average. There is a lot of vegan competition now so my expectations are high.

I was very happy with everything; the food, the drinks, the service, the atmosphere, the location, the price. It was a nice experience and I would recommend it to everyone.

The desserts were old, stale and tasteless. The savories were also not tasty since there was so much smoky taste going on. The only eatbale thing was scones, jam and honey. The waitresses were good and attentive. The ambiance was ok not very interesting or luxurious. I wouldn’t recommend this experience. It was over priced for the level of afternoon treats we ate. The coffee and tea was also not very good quality.

The food was very creative especially the smoked 'salmon' roll. Cakes were amazing too. You made vegan food exciting and inspiring. Lovely intimate setting and friendly staff. Would definitely visit again.
