    We enjoyed our afternoon tea but a couple of things made it slightly less enjoyable than it could have been. The table we were seated at was right by the kitchen door and sadly my colleagues who were facing this saw all what was going on within the kitchen area which wasn't the best view. Also as there were 5 of us one person had to sit at the end of a table suitable for 4 and the waitresses were having to walk past him all the time with other guests food and tea. We would have been better placed the other end where tables were available. There were 2 babies there with their mums which was not a problem however there was a lot of food on the floor from the babies which again was not the best view to have and they were fairly noisy. Overall it was a bit cramped making your conversations public. The food was excellent and the staff were lovely.

    Right from the start of out visit we were made to feel welcome and special .Its was a warm Sunday so we were asked if we would like to sit outside in the garden ,which is what we choose .Offered drinks first of tea ,coffee or a Pimms as it was warm .Drinks chooser and served from a nice young lady .Then she went to get out afternoon savoury selection . Good choice and all freshly made . After these is was cream tea and small little cakes .The service was fantastic from the young ladies.And the food delightful. We will go back in a heart beat .

    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!
