    The tea was excellent. Staff very polite and professional. Did not know there would be a 15% service charge on the bill £12 is a bit much. Would like to have been told when booking.

    When we made our reservation we requested a table in the courtyard as it was a special occasion. When we arrived we were disappointed that our allocated table was inside. We asked if it was possible to sit outside as it was a birthday celebration. Within 5 minutes a table outside was found for us, we were so grateful. Although the weather had suddenly become more autumnal the outside heaters kept us warm and cosy. The service was friendly and attentive and the afternoon tea itself was delicious. They also brought over an additional piece of cake with a candle, a lovely touch. We would definitely recommend this for a treat, ideal for a girls day out. Make sure you get your picture taken in the rose chair, perfect for Instagram!! Thank you very much.

    A lovely novel afternoon tea. The hotel have made excellent use of their external courtyard area. Ok they haven’t gone over the top with decorating to enhance the theme, but the detail is in the crockery and menu. I particularly loved the choice of fresh leaf teas. We had the afternoon tea with signature cocktail. There was plenty of really yummy food and the cocktail was lovely.
