    Food was delightful, but small portions. Service was non-existent. We were left sitting with dirty plates for 45 minutes and had to pay at the bar.

    Lovely afternoon tea. Very nice and efficient staff, a lovely setting, food was great - the sandwiches were really nice, scones were warm and not too big and the cakes were delicious. The tea was served on pretty Wedgwood china which just added to the sense of occasion. I would highly recommend.

    Delightful afternoon tea. Staff were friendly and efficient.My only criticism was the noise level in the room. A nearby table of 12 were very vocal and jolly so it was not quite the sedate surroundings that I had envisaged.
