    A pleasant afternoon tea but could be slightly improved with say small fork to eat cakes, some small flowers on table, It is the small touches that count. The staff were very helpful

    Very average food. Disappointing, considering it was a special occasion. Maybe that’s what we have to expect outside of london in a restaurant not know to specialise in its food.

    Came for afternoon tea in the conservatory, was really light and open and had a very relaxed feel about it! We were there about 2 hours and didn't feel rushed or pressured to leave. Loved the scones - only negative was we had to ask for butter to go with our cheese scones as none was provided.

    Interesting selection of vegetables offered ...turnip with salmon! Our meal was good, service was a bit amateurish wine bottle on the table unopened so not breathing.

    From start to finish, the experience was wonderful! The service was 5*, the food and drink was delicious, and the fact the hotel is very dog friendly, with a beautiful ambience was just the icing on the cake! We couldn't have been more welcomed or looked after, and the Head Chef even came out to see us (we've met him before). We had a truly lovely time, and will be back again!

    We had the three course Sunday lunch, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Although the service was slow initially, once we started it was a well designed menu, excellent vegetables, and good presentation for each course.
