    It was a great experience,favourite was the scones home baked and warm the waitress made us feel special all the cakes were marvellous having as many teas as we liked was great also the choices of other hot drinks,and extra special on our trip was that the chef and waitress brought out a small cake and firework with happy birthday on which was amazing for my 21 year old daughter.
    Only slight downside was sandwich choices which weren’t our favourite.
    Overall 5 stars.

    Food and service were both lovely for our Afternoon Tea; I'd requested a vegetarian option for myself and it was really well catered for, and the staff knowledgeable.

    Had a fabulous meal here on Saturday evening. Poached duck egg with asparagus was just perfect. Lamb chicken and Pork mains were all delicious and were generous portions. I shared a cheese board with my daughter and the choice was extensive and included my absolute favourite, Mrs Temples Binham Blue. Everything was freshly cooked and the service impeccable. The price was on par with restaurants further into the city where microwave food from Wholesale sellers is the norm. We will definitely return and can't wait to try their Sunday lunch menu.

    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.

    A lovely quiet lunch, at which we could take our time and talk in peace, just what we wanted.

    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!)
