    We had a wonderful experience from start to finish...can’t fault it at all. We had booked for afternoon tea.

    Lovely afternoon tea! The sausage roll and quiche were amazing, not to mention the constant top up of Prosecco. The staff were so accommodating, especially as we had my 5yr old cousin - which they did a fabulous kids menu afternoon tea with a grilled cheese sandwich for her. Would definitely go again, and recommend as a low key and tasty afternoon tea spot.

    Excellent service (especially Steph!) and nice little location. The Prosecco flowed nicely and the Afternoon Tea was decent. Although the chicken option was a bit bland. Did not try the Salmon but they were nice enough to sub it out. Well worth the price.

    This was one of the best meals we have had for a long time and although at a bargain price was equal to a lot of the best restaurants in London. Will be coming back here for sure.

    It was only Fair. I wasn't expecting much so wasn't that disappointed it was bottomless prosecco and that's what we bought. Despite that had a great time. Well worth it.
