This was a birthday treat - high tea- for daughters 30th birthday with family from 18 months to over 80. Every one well catered for including the children and vegetarian. nothing was too much trouble, extra cheese sandwiches for kids was quickly supplied. Laura, our hostess was lovely, could not do enough for us all. No pressure to be done by a certain time, overall a brilliant experience and a perfect venue for the birthday party!!! We will back. The food being all Scottish made it even more special.

We had afternoon tea on the 26.5.16. It was a birthday treat. Food was bite size, varied, very fresh, plentiful and extremely tasty. Earl grey tea was strong, just as we like it. Staff were very professional and friendly, making sure we had everything we needed, lots of refills of tea etc. Venue is large and airy, my only issue would be with the sound echo, you'd have to pick your seating spot if you wear an hearing aid. At £16.95 it was on the pricey end of afternoon tea, but the whole afternoon was great. Would we go again, that's a big yes.
