Really lovely afternoon tea in pleasant surroundings. Spoilt (not your fault) by being the only customers in your large dining room. Service could have better as we had to seek out a member of staff to request an additional cup of coffee, but otherwise very enjoyable.
never attended!!!! Covid shut down !!!! you wont let us change the booking and have not been helpful at all as we were using a groupon voucher
I haven't been yet as they cancelled
Excellent afternoon tea. Fresh sandwiches with a variety of fillings. Lovely scones with plenty of jam and cream. Gorgeous fresh cakes, with an great selection. There was plenty of tea, with an offer of more if required. Our waiter was friendly, helpful and polite, willing to help if needed. Mum said the best afternoon tea she had eaten. Well done.
Given the unprecedented situation the staff were great. We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon tea,
Disappointed that the hot chocolate was like water and tasteless. The coffee machine was out of use so my mum has just tap water. No atmosphere what so ever. Cakes were nice, scones were tiny and only one miniature pot of jam between two people. The sandwiches were a bit stale. Overall not the best experience.
Very small amount of food compared to many other afternoon teas we have had. We were the only ones in the restaurant yet no one came over and asked us if we were ok? Needed anything? Happy with everything? In fact we had to ask for a top up of our milk and tea. Wouldn’t recommend or come again, which is a shame as we have been before and enjoyed the experience
Harvey was amazing - thank you Harvey. Food was good but gluten free cakes were not very tasty and most of the normal puddings had nuts in. More variety would be good.
Lovely staff and lovely afternoon tea experience!
Lovely afternoon. We even saw our favorite member of staff, Jake. Who arranged our wedding at the same place last year.
Met and seated by a charming young man. Lost one star for food and drink and the tea was a bit weak and not very hot. However, the food was lovely.
Had a lovely afternoon tea with a friend, the sandwiches and cakes were lovely and fresh, the staff were very polite and professional, was offered more tea and coffee. Would definitely recommend 😀
Very nice tea but we were the only ones , other than another table for two who left shortly after we arrived, in a very large restaurant felt a bit clinical, very quite not even any music in back ground that would have helped , last time we were in the bar area which was much nicer.
Excellent and attentive staff
We enjoyed afternoon tea. The food was fresh and service was good. The restaurant was quiet but nice and relaxed which was perfect for a relaxed afternoon tea.
Pleasant afternoon tea but not wow.
I took my mum for a cream tea for her birthday she had a lovely time staff even made her plain ham sandwiches as she only does plain. Helpful and cheerful certainly will go again
Lovely afternoon tea. Friendly staff, plenty of fresh food choices.
Basic afternoon tea. Lack of variety of sandwiches. Scones were nice. Offered a refill of tea once.
Such a lovely afternoon tea, & a lovely touch of decorating the table for my friend’s birthday. Lovely, friendly, attentive staff. Thank you
Excellent service from staff, made to feel very welcome and looked after. Would've liked a choice of sandwiches but the selection was ok (tuna, ham, egg & cheese). I guess I'm just a bit fussy :p
We had a wonderful time. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. We have already recommended this to other family members.
Lovely afternoon tea
Good bargain, great atmosphere. Would love to go again.
