    I booked afternoon tea as a surprise for our 36th wedding anniversary. It was amazing! The food was beautiful and the staff were very attentive. Great value for money! Highly recommend this venue.

    Lovely afternoon tea for six of us to celebrate a birthday. Food was delicious.. Would have preferred an explanation of the teas rather than the box set. Needed more refills of tea too.Sandwiches, scones and cakes all amazing.Perhaps a corner, round seating would have worked better for our party.Thank you.

    Came for afternoon tea, tea selection was good but no English breakfast tea, this had to be requested. Lighting was a bit dark. Sandwiches were good, some of the cakes were a bit dry.

    Service was lovely and friendly, the bottomless prosecco was refilled regularly and without promoting.

    The food was a bit of a let down though, it was nothing like the menu available on the website and the Victoria sandwich and chocolate cake especially had a very shop bought taste to them.

    We came for afternoon tea as it was a friends birthday. We had to wait for the scones as they were not ready and they were very hot when they came out. The restaurant area that we were in had nice decor , but I was a little disappointed when the staff started laying up for breakfast ( at 2pm in the afternoon)while we were still there as well as a few other diners. I also got the impression once we had finished eating the staff were waiting to clear away!!!

    Me and a group of friends when there as a 50th birthday treat and had the unlimited prosecco afternoon tea. Overall a great place, we were made feel welcome and very special and we all enjoyed it very very much. The unlimited prosecco was very generous, which is always a bonus. If I have to point a negative it was that sweet to savory ratio was biased towards the sweet. Would definitely go back there again.

    Afternoon Tea. Food was very nice. More cakes than sandwiches which we would have preferred the other way around. Prosecco was a nice quality. Good selection of Teas.

    Saturday evening booking for 4. Well presented room with bar at the front & grill at the rear. Somewhat disconcerting that there were virtually no diners & the bar was quite full. First off, I can't or the group can't complain about the food - it was fine but nothing stand out. The issue overall was shambolic service. Lack of knowledge of the dishes when asking about them, wine list has plenty of choice, but the staff were clearly not familiar with the list - it felt like they needed numbers, not names. A highlighted nut allergy of one of the guests, seemed to be ignored as if it was odd for us to inform them. There was repeated delay with getting drinks to the table, to the point one of the party ordered a glass of wine before finishing the current one and on one occasion, when it did arrive on time (maybe the bar had calmed down), the waitress wanted to remove the other half full drink. There was a group party in the basement &;somehow the smokers from that group seemed to be going out and standing near a ventilation system that came into the area where we were sitting. We informed the manager and at first disputing this, he could not avoid the fact as the smell was evident. We ordered desserts and after 20 minutes, the manager came over to apologise & say the chef had left. We offered coffee/tea but we said this was already late & we were so fed up with the way the evening had progressed that we wanted to go. So, he agreed to discount the bill of a bottle of wine. When the bill arrived, the bottle was still on. He then came back to say that the waitress said there had been two bottles. This was incorrect and he amended it, but it did come down to the fact that the staff around were not trained. The manager was extremely apologetic & the only one that was aware that the service was poor so we didn't labour the issue as he looked quite exhausted. I'm sorry to write a bad review like this, but it needs to be highlighted as this is also meant to be a good hotel.
