    The restaurant was very beautiful with lovely views of the garden. The afternoon tea was fantastic, well presented and freshly made. The staff were excellent, polite and attentive without being intrusive. The helpings were so generous that we took some home in a box offered by the staff. The whole experience was entirely positive.

    Got my requested table by a window which was nice as so many places ignore requests! Chose from table d'hote menu which was once more good. Food was again delicious and did not disappoint - repeat visit from 3 8 20 - really tasty and looked good. Service was excellent as much busier than earlier in the month. Only observation which is not really about the dining but we did comment on a prior visit that the garden needs a huge tidy up - as you sit looking out on the garden for the most part whether dining on the terrace or in the conservatory not really great to see bindweed climbing up the shrubs or the lawn looking like a field - there is shabby chic and then downright untidy! The place needs a gardener!

    Fantastic service, our waiter a Young man called Connor was the most pleasant and tentative waiter I have met and he deserves a medal for the service he gives.
