    Food was excellent as always. Staff were very helpful and polite. One tiny detail I was charged £5.50 for the prosecco though on the afternoon tea details it clearly say £5 I also asked for a Pinot and was told it would be the same price only to be charged £5.75. I ordered apple juice for my 11 year old granddaughter and this was £2.70. Surely when paying full price for the afternoon tea for my granddaughter the juice should have been included. She does not drink tea or coffee.

    Food good. It was a pre theatre booking and we had to leave before we could finish dessert

    Very friendly welcome and great service from the staff. The Sunday Lunch menu was tasty and very good value-for-money. Only slight negative was the rather over-priced wine. (BTW, the restaurant was also serving afternoon tea, and it looked fabulous. Will be trying that next time!)

    Food was ok but not great. Service was pretty awful! To order a second drink we had to leave our table and walk through the restaurant to find our waitress. No apologies that no one had been over to check everything was ok or see if anything else was needed. Rude attitude in general from the waitress serving us, and the bill was brought to us before we had asked for it making us feel as though we had to leave.

    Delicious food, one of the best afternoon teas I've had. We went for the best of British option. Staff really friendly, would definitely recommend and will return!

    Mothers Day meal booked. Poor service, even for a busy mothers day lunchtime sitting. the waiters were more interested in setting up tables for the next sitting than bringing our next course or milk and sugar for the tea and coffee half an hour for in the first place. Food was OK. Atmosphere was nice and welcome was good. Felt a bit let down but the manager offered 10% discount because of the delays, which was fair.
