We were met at the door and escorted to the room and given a menu of the teas on offer. The savory selection came out, it was well presented and absolutely delicious. The sweet selection came out after we had finished the Savories and again it was absolutely delicious. Everything that was presented to eat tasted freshly baked it was very well presented and the lady that serviced us was lovely attentive without being pushy. I would totally recommend this and will definitely go back.

Afternoon tea was lovely treat and it was good to have separate savoury and sweet stands. Good variety on both, service was friendly and it was good value for money.

Lovely afternoon tea and the staff really went out of their way. Told them it was for a friends baby shower and they’d already decorated the table which we really appreciated! Lovely service and a great range of food!
