Really beautiful meal. Ribeye was cooked perfectly and spring greens side was lovely. Not sure about the pulled pork mash. Felt like a dish in itself rather than a side. House Malbec was great. Really enjoyed our meal. Thank you

the food was excellent the staff equally my only concern was the fact we needed to keep our coats on there was no heating and room was really cold which meant the food needed to be eaten quickly. again the food and service were excellent though

I would have gave 5 stars for recommending a friend if it wasn’t for the car park! Awful. Which is a shame because the inside is so lovely and the experience was great. Just wouldn’t want to recommend a friend to go and ruin their car while driving over pot holes and having to walk through mud to get to the door. A simple tarmac over the drive would solve this. Also might help if the place and the car park was more sign posted.

I have been to many afternoon teas at various venues but unfortunately this was probably worst value for money!!! We had 2 plates of sandwiches between 13 of us and we had to keep passing them back and forth!!! Some of the cakes were most certainly shop bought and cut up.. e.g Bakewell Couldn’t fault the service provided by the staff.

The planning was very well managed, we were a party of 12 and we had a great lunch. The food from the lunch menu was very nice, all plates were well presented, well balanced and seasoned just right. I highly recommend it, specially for business lunches.

Absolutely first class. The best meal we have, possibly ever had in terms of consistency of all the courses being equally beautiful. Not cheap but excellent value for money. Fantastic warm attentive service. Had never been before but will now be going again.... And again Simply excellent.

It was a borderline argument to get the second pot of tea for the 4 people dining. I was asked if I’d ordered it... it’s a pot for 2, we have 1 and there’s 4 of us I replied. The only vegetarian option was salmon (she’s vegetarian) egg (she doesn’t eat) or cream cheese. That’s appalling. Worst still the vegetarian sandwiches were filling to filling with the chicken sandwiches on the same plate!!! Is your food hygiene rating of 5 real? They forgot some of our cakes, having just forgotten the same cakes on the table next to us. The sandwiches were stale the scones were really dry and the cakes were average. The service was ok when they were actually there... I came to you expecting gold service and quality hence why I paid double the average cost of an afternoon tea. Sadly it was the worst afternoon tea I ever had in terms of quantity, quality, hygiene, service so much so I didn’t leave a tip. And I always tip! Very disappointed.
