Lovely afternoon tea
As always our visit was extremely enjoyable.
Scones are wonderful.
Very pleasant atmosphere and staff. It was busy so service a bit slow but overal did not detract from the overal experience.
Ideal setting for a light lunch.
Cannot put into words how much we enjoy going to Art Lovers Cafe. The staff are exceptional, food fantastic and surroundings beautiful. This is definately one of our favourite places and will continue to return time and again.
Staff were delightful and food excellent. Beautiful surroundings.
Had a lovely lunch with friends. We weren’t rushed and the food was really tasty. Only slight mark down on service was that we weren’t told there was a roast dinner option. We happened to spot it at another table and spoke to staff and established it was available however it wasn’t offered by our server.
The food is always impeccable
We had the most wonderful evening, the food & service was excellent & we were so pleasantly surprised that the cafe wasn't full to capacity...which made the atmosphere so much nicer than it being packed out like so many places are on Valentines night. It was perfect. Thank you.
Recommend asking for a window seat when booking.
I think we perhaps just made a poor choice on the cake sharing platter we were presented with 4 rather uninspiring cakes they didn’t taste all that fresh and certainly not light. However we did get a very nice welcome and seat by the window . No one actually asked how the cakes were . I would say that looking around the other lunch dishes being served did look appetising.
Very good meal and service. Attentive friendly and efficient staff.
Another excellent lunch in really nice place
I thoroughly enjoyed my chosen dish but was disappointed by the relatively poor range of option from which I had to choose.
Excellent lunch served by friendly staff Definitely return !
We had a delicious lunch, staff were all friendly and helpful and the environment is warm and cosy - very professionally done!
Service was friendly and efficient. Food delicious but what an amazing setting!
For a table of 4 covers, haddock was lukewarm & its poached egg cold, the cauliflower risotto had very little cauliflower, was overcooked & bland, and 1 meal was the wrong order. We asked for the fish, egg and correct order to be replaced/ provided. Having enjoyed eating at the ALC previously, this was a disappointing experience.
A cold meat option for the sandwiches would have been appreciated rather than just salmon and egg. Also a plain scone for those who don't like dried fruit. However service and staff were lovely, attentive and extremely helpful and accomodating.
Lovely afternoon tea after a stroll round the park.
Food very good, maybe lacking just a bit more thought. Accompanying salad a bit on plain side , had to ask for mayonnaise but did arrive instantly!
Delightful staff who are eager to help and ensure you have everything you want. My friends and I had a nicely balanced afternoon tea full of tasty and varied goodies.
