It was what we expected for a groupon deal, we have been before. It’s a shame there was no atmosphere but under these circumstances I understand why. I was very impressed with the social distancing and care taken to protect the public. Thank you

The service was fantastic. Thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon tea. We took our two younger daughters & they catered to their needs by giving cheese & ham sandwiches, which we didn’t ask for, but was absolutely perfect. So nice & thoughtful. Was very impressed. Thankyou to all the staff. Definitely shall be returning.

Really disappointed with the afternoon tea we had on Saturday 10th October. It was a celebration for my 40th birthday but nothing about it felt special. The service was poor from arrival to us leaving and the food and drink was basic.

A really disappointing visit I appreciate things are difficult with COVID however once seated we waited for ages to be asked what we would like to drink, there was only us and one other table. Once the food was delivered we never saw anyone again, no one checked, even from a distance, if everything was ok (the scones were dry) did we need anything etc - we left. This is the second time (not both during covid times) I have had a bad experience having an afternoon tea here I shan’t be visiting again

Difficult times so no atmosphere. 1st lot of tea was luke warm, 2nd was hot. weren't asked at anytime by waiter if everything to our satisfaction. Did not acknowledge us on leaving. Receptionists warm, helpful and welcoming. The tea was a gift so cannot comment on value for money.

This was the worst afternoon tea I have ever experienced. Service awful tea awful scones stale. Not enough cleaning for coronavirus. Not even worth one star. Had to fill it in to submit form

Although I appreciate the current Covid situation, there was no atmosphere as we were the only people in the restaurant. The tea was rather meagre for the price. Even with Groupon deal. No assorted teas as on previous occasions. Only one fruit scone each. We asked to have the Prosecco at the end of our meal but when we were ready we waited around 15 minutes for a staff member to appear and then spent a good 5 minutes trying to attract their attention. Having said that the waitress who initially attended us was very pleasant and helpful. I would have been very unhappy if I had paid full price of £49

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.

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.

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
