    I booked a free-flowing prosecco afternoon tea for myself and three friends. The décor and location were great and the tea was delicious. Lovely sandwiches and cakes, very good scones, with plenty of cream and jam. But the service was fabulous - very attentive but knew when to leave us alone. I would thoroughly recommend this place.

    The food was really lovely and the bubbles were very free flowing. Was a little disappointed that we had to pay for extra sandwiches though as many places offer them for free now.

    Lovely food, excellent service provided for our late lunch. Reliable as ever. Only reason it’s not a 5 star review is that we were the only people in the restaurant throughout which lacked atmosphere, but that is of course a very harsh criticism.

    A lovely afternoon tea. The sandwiches were lovely and fresh and had nice fillings. The mini quiche was the nicest I’ve ever had. A good selection of cakes and 2 scones per person. The free flowing Prosecco was plentiful. A very nice experience.

    I had the bottomless prosecco afternoon tea. Food was good and staff were professional, helpful and very friendly. Only concern was that I was not told that my time for the prosecco was started when I arrived, even though we didn't actually start dining until 15-20 mins later. My friend was a bit late so I understand this can happen but was told the time was started later, when we were both seated. Therefore I did not get the full 90 minutes. I think it would have been nice to be told at the start, this was my only criticism.

    Calm, enjoyable and professional. Good for friends and family alike

    The afternoon tea was great - lovely food and attentive staff. Only minor point would be that the plates weren't clean (and I'm not fanatical and picky about this kind of thing) but plates were greasy and smeared. They replaced them and it didn't spoil a great afternoon.
