Absolutely wonderful. My daughter and I went for afternoon tea with Prosecco. The food was very well presented and tasted gorgeous. The staff were fantastic, friendly and helpful. I have been before and the experience was the same both times. Especially loved the selection of cakes. We had a great time and will definitely go back at the earliest opportunity. We were made to feel very welcome and spoilt thanks to the lovely waitress.

Wonderful service. Beautiful food & even though we were given the incorrect order, the staff very quickly rectified the matter. Felt like it was very reasonably priced for the amount you got & we were able to take any leftovers home.

A wonderful afternoon tea, for myself as a returning customer and my sister on her first visit. Excellent selection of savouries and sweet. So lovely to be able to eat an afternoon tea as a coeliac- very well catered for!
Service was very good, friendly and non intrusive. My Gluten free platters were all super! Thank you!

Went for afternoon tea. We were shown to our table and given menu to choose our hot drinks which were brought out within minutes. Cake stand full of savoury food/sandwiches was delicious enjoyed every item especially leek boat.
Cake stand of sweet desserts were absolutely divine, scones were still warm and desolved in your mouth as they were so fresh.
They kept checking if we needed any more drinks and served us quickly when refills were required.
