Really nice introduction to the teas. The food was delicious, but as we were there for our lunch it seemed like not enough of the sandwiches for two. Would have preferred two plates of savoury instead of sweet. Patricia was lovely.

We came for Afternoon Tea. My sister and I enjoyed it very much. We especially liked the sandwiches and the carrot cake. The staff was friendly and attentive. We loved the assortment of teas to select. The only disappointment was the physical location of the area where tea was served. Our expectation was that it would be in a special room with a lovely view of the gardens or the like; instead, it was just in an open, public eating area with zero charm or views.

We arrived early and they graciously got us seated. It was pouring rain. So we were very happy. The tea was lovely and the food was great. I have been trying to get the recipe for the plain scones we had there and also the clotted cream. Is there any way you would send the recipes to me? Thank you very much. We loved it so much we went back for lunch another day.
