The tea experience was wonderful. Everything was extremely fresh and full of flavour. Service was friendly and efficient. If I was picky, I would say that the cucumber was too thin in those sandwiches but really that is all I can think of... Perfect.

    Booked afternoon tea with an experience voucher. Warm welcome in inviting restaurant. The menu and choice was explained to us, including an excellent range of choices of tea and coffee. There was a good selection of fresh sandwiches and cakes. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

    I enjoyed afternoon tea here. Service was excellent and food was nice. I had a two for one coupon but I feel the full price (£25 each) would have been quite pricey for what was included.

    Very poor service. We waited almost 45 minutes for our appetizers to come in and then another 1 1/2 for our dinner to arrive. Everyone was feeling very anxious and impatient.

    Service was very good. Vegetables in pasta a little over cooked. Vegetarian polenta dish was very good.

    An average restaurant, but with really plain decor. Leaves the impression of a pizzeria more than a fine restaurant.

    Overall it was an avarage experience.
    The light in the dining area is too bright. They could easily turn off the downlights and just leave the hanging lamps on. The panels on the walls around us had some dried spilages from before. Little to no ambiance but then again it is a hotel bar/restaurant too. The staff are extremly helpful but constantly checking on you, collecting your dishes whilst you are still eating/drinking. The food is fresh and tasty but nothing special considering the price you pay (custard in the fruit tarts shop bought and plasticky). With the discount voucher for 2-for-1 Afternoon Tea, with an extra glass of prosseco each we still paid almost the same price as for two normal meals as the optional service charge was included automatically.
    The place was busy, we saw people enjoying the experience but unfortunately it wasnt for us.

    Supporting our afternoon tea we had good service and pleasant surroundings. The sandwiches, scones and cakes were plentiful and yummy.

  • (((** 2 January 2017 by Anne Lim from London

    Had afternoon tea there. Sandwiches were stale and fillings unimaginative and were not dainty enough. Scones and muffins tasted store bought and the fruit tarts, a real left down. I love fruit tarts and kept them to the last as a treat but I needn't have bothered! They left a funny aftertaste in my mouth. There were also something unidentifiable and were just sickly sweet. What was good were the little macaroons and the variety of teas offered.
    The service was good. The staff were attentive and eager to please but the ambience of the place was non-existent!
