The sandwiches and cakes were tasty but the ratio of cake to sandwich was abit much. We would of preferred more sandwiches as we wasted a lot of the cake. Unfortunately the service was not great. We were seated then waited 20minutes for a drink then another 15 for the cakes etc. It didn't seem busy and the staff were lovely but just such a long time. Saying this i would come again as it is such a lovely setting.
The afternoon tea was certainly not well balanced. You had more cakes than savoury. The choice was not anything we liked. I understand you might be trying to offer variety. But there was no vegetarian option offered we did not even get the menu, simply sat down then after 20 minutes the afternoon tea came out, the tea was served in a stainless steel pot, not what you would expect at afternoon tea. The cakes however were lovely!
Would of preferred proper sandwiches with afternoon tea, and we did not like/enjoy attempts at wraps.
Our waitress greated us and was so friendly. when we all sat down we were given a cold glass of Fizz. it was delicious. Then the afternoon team came, it looked amazing. lots of photographs were taken! The food tasted as good as it looked. The duck Boa Buns were amazing I could have eaten a plate full of them! The cakes and puddings were colourful as they were tasy. A real feast for the eyes. Washed down with a piping hot pot of tea. We all needed a lie down after that. Would highly recommend the afternoon tea, it was such a treat.
Really enjoyed the afternoon tea. Great range of sandwiches and cakes with a glass of fizz and drink included! Great value. Also I don’t like scones so they gave me an extra cake instead which was not a problem for them so thankyou!
Excellent with a great selection.
Amazing cakes on this was lush
We really enjoyed. Staff were great and so was the food
Great food, could have better vegetarian choices.
Really enjoyed the restaurant, the views and all Your stafff are lovely
Everything was lovely but would have preferred proper sandwiches
The food and drink where excellent and the grill was nice and relaxing
Thank you to everybody. Absolutely fabulous time. Nothing could have been approved on.
Had a lovely afternoon. Staff were great and the atmosphere was relaxing and enjoyable. Maybe a few different variety of sandwiches on offer as both myself and my mum don’t like salmon or goats cheese. Didn’t get the chance to say as the second we sat down the food was brought out! We didn’t get time to have a drink first which would’ve been nice.
I called to book and had to leave a voice message but nobody called me back. I then had to call again to book in.
Firstly was given a fish platter with out being given a choice of fish or meat and none of us liked fish as later on we heard staff asking another customer if they wanted a fish or meat platter then we was told if we wanted a refill of coffee or tea to just shout them over but in all the time we was there we didn’t see anyone or any staff to be able to ask for a refill. Also on my voucher that I got it said about a cocktail each didn’t receive it also had to go and search for a member of staff to give my voucher to. I’ve had family and friends that recommend this place so had high hopes of it for my mums birthday but was very disappointed.
Delicious food, lovely place. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
It was a lovely experience to start our spa break the service was excellent and the staff very pleasant and chatty
There were 8 of us, originally booked for 9 however my sister became ill and was admitted to hospital the day before our visit. The staff were so helpful, and went as far as to make up an afternoon tea for my sister that we could take away. They prepared it fresh on the morning of check out and wrapped it in foil in the shape of swans! It was such a lovely touch, we felt like we had really been looked after and were able to take something back for her. The afternoon tea was tasty and plentiful, gorgeous prosecco! (Should have asked what that was!) You have very attentive staff who go out of their way to make sure everything is just right! Thank you so much.
The sandwich bites were delicious and more of these would be appreciated. However it was afternoon tea which is all about the sweet treats. Everything was beautifully presented and the waitress very quickly brought freshly warmed scones for us after we pointed out that the ones served were a little hard. The coffe was fresh and hot and the complementary fizz was much appreciated.
A wonderful afternoon,service was brilliant,staff really looked after us,left without leaving a well deserved tip,so sorry but will be back soon to make it up to you👍🏻💕
The afternoon tea was lovely and the waitres was very friendly and provided exceptional service. It was a lovely treat with the girls.
Really good value as added it on to an overnight stay on special offer but I would be equally happy to pay full price. Plenty of choice, good selection & really filling & the glass of fizz is a nice touch. For me I would choose a few more savoury options in favour of the amount of sweet but that's just my preference & we even left some as there was so much so no complaints from me. Really good value & the setting overlooking the golf course & the service were both lovely.
Staff were friendly but obviously not trained. Servingvfrom rhe wrong sides, plonking things down. Giving you spoons that did not reach bottom of shot glass desserts. Clearing things from table before all diners had finished.
Burger in restaurant was awful
