Continental Breakfast - all vegan, all super delicious
12 January 2020
We had the breakfast. This is my second visit. Breakfast was amazing. Just a tad bit too much salt. The staff were lovely and tentative. It was my bfs bday so I left a message on my booking if it could be made extra special and the staff did just that. Defo coming back here.

Really great food. The best vegurger I have ever eaten. Desserts to die for, my eyes were bigger than my tummy though! Excellent service! Definitely one to return to.

To be honest, it wasn’t a great experience. Me and my friend were visiting the cafe for an afternoon tea (she had that and I just had coffee as I wasn’t feeling too well), but the waitress never bothered to bring her a plate or spoon that were provided to all other guests, so in order to be able to have the dessert, we had to ask for a spoon ourselves. Also, when bringing the afternoon tea elements to the table, the waitress explained to all of the guests that arrived after us what was included in the afternoon tea, but to us she never bothered to say anything about the food, she just brought it to the table and left. Furthermore, I ordered chai latte for myself as but got a normal latte instead, but I didn’t even mention it to her and just paid for chai latte. Overall I’d say that the food and especially service that we received was nowhere near the level we would have expected and not good value for money.

Horrible horrible horrible food! This will put people off vegan food. So salty. Yuck. Everything was bad except the bread pudding desert. Worst vegan dining experience I've had in 11 years

My wife discovered on Instagram that your hotel does a vegan afternoon tea for the Christmas celebrations and as a result we decide to give it a try. To be honest I didn’t have no expectations but what a nice surprise. The café is tastefully and contemporary decorated with comfortable chairs and pillows. The food is delicious and the teas are aromatic. The cakes ingredients are carefully balanced not to sweet so you can definitely enjoy the hole experience. Better than expected I might say. Thank you ??.

Amazing afternoon tea with an amazing vegan menu that left us absolutely stuffed! Staff even went the extra mile to help us celebrate our anniversary which was a really lovely touch and much appreciated

This is the best vegan tea experience I've ever had! The food was excellent and it's a fantastic value for your money. The service was also great and we felt very welcomed and had a great dining experience.

Afternoon tea was lovely - would like more sandwiches or the option to have more options like at traditional tea. Was chocolate heavy so would let the restaurant know if you are not a fan or allergic to chocolate as we did for one friend. There was not a wide selection of tea and coffee to choose from. The free 'mocktail champagne' was lemonade but the idea was noce.
