It was a great experience. The food was great and the wait staff etc were perfect. The girl serving us heard me mention that we needed more milk so she got some. We love

    The food at the Plaza cafe is really good. The problem is the service. Our order was taken, then we had to wait 25minutes for our tea and coffee which arrived after our food. They just need to get a bit more organised with the waiting on staff.

    Made very welcome on arrival. Table was very nicely set out. We had lovely time and all the staff worked hard to make our day special for my auntie Dora's 90th birthday celebration. Food well presented and delicious, bit too much so doggy bags were provided in the form of silver swans and the finishing touch was the table decoration teacup my auntie took home as a memento. Thank you to everyone.

    Have been to this venue a few times and it is certainly very atmospheric and reminiscent of a bygone era. The service is generally very good and my friend was offered a taste of 2 different teas when she could not decide which to order, which was much appreciated. The food was all very good, very fresh and tasty. However I did think that perhaps the afternoon tea was a bit overpriced in comparison to others I have tried, which have usually offered another savoury dish. Also I was very disappointed to be charged for an extra pot of tea. All afternoon teas I have had before have included unlimited tea. After all it's not a great extra expense. Aside from this we were very happy and my friend really enjoyed her birthday treat.

    I am 66 years old and have kept in touch with two friends from Primary School (approximately 60 years). On regular occasions we still meet up and are "ladies that lunch". We always go to the Plaza as we find the atmosphere most enjoyable. The service is always friendly and the food never fails to satisfy. On this occasion I went with my daughter and 19 year old granddaughter and treated them both to "Afternoon Tea". They were really impressed and none of us could fault a single thing. A big WELL DONE to all the staff at the Plaza, always a most enjoyable experience.

    A very nice lunch, perfectly cooked. Room venue a tad on the dark side. Could do with the curtains on tie-backs.

    Love the ambience service and excellent food served here. Enjoyed a relaxed lunch with friends who hadn't been before, they were blown away by it all..
    We will certainly become regulars,

    A wonderful experience. Lovely surroundings of some character complemented by excellent friendly service. The food (all from the breakfast menu) was first rate. We were able to eat and drink at our own pace and were never rushed. Altogether a really great morning. Will certainly return. Decent prices too for the high quality on offer.
