Booked afternoon tea, including one gluten free. On arrival we received a warm welcome. We were impressed by the range of teas on offer. The prosecco that was served with the afternoon tea was of a high quality with fruity tropical flavours. The food was of good quality and more than sufficient portion sizes, this includes the gluten free option which is not always the case at other places. The venue is small and we were placed on a table for two despite there being three of us, this meant we felt rather cramped. We really enjoyed our afternoon tea experience and would thoroughly recommend it to others.

We went as a three for my mums birthday, I had to wait 10 minutes to get tea as the service wasn’t great and we always had to grab the waitresses attention. The food was okay but not quite worth £16.95 each.

We booked in for afternoon tea at 13.30. However half the group got lost so the staff gave us a jug of water to drink while we waited. A nice touch. Two courses, first savoury followed by sweet. A lot of savoury included cheese which I don't eat but the staff just made me extra sandwiches. Let over cakes were boxed up for us to take awe. Pick a drink and have it topped up at no additional cost. Very enjoyable experience

One of the best afternoon teas I've had. Value for money and a good variety of sweet and savoury items
