We took my mum for afternoon tea as a Birthday treat which she enjoyed very much .The setting is great with very helpful and attentive staff.

Such a lovely afternoon tea, the staff were second to none and made us feel very welcome and at ease. Nothing was rushed and the food (and cakes) were delightful! I would endlessly recommend the river restaurant and can't wait to come back!

This is one of the best afternoon teas! Really good price, the food is so yum, and unlimited tea. The only downside is this time the service wasn't great. We were there for a few hours n had to ask for service. Overall a lovely treat.

The afternoon tea was in a nice setting, and included all of the elements I would expect. The cheesecake and scones were particularly well made.

Fabulous venue, great service, wonderful environment and exceptional food. Afternoon tea for a birthday surprise and it couldn't have gone any better, a wonderful treat for both the birthday girl and me. Would recommend for that treat with a difference.

Was very disappointed in the service. We were there for tea; but they forgot to bring out tea - we had to ask several times. Also, if we needed anything, we had to flag down one of the wait staff. Also, some of the food didn't seem that fresh.
