Absolutely reccommended for afternoon tea :) We ordered an upgrade version with coctails - both the drinks and food were amazing. Plus we had it with live music (singing + guitar duo:))

The gentleman who greeted us was great and confirmed that we were able to use 50% off January offer, he explained that we were to sit in the bar booths as they had a big party arriving, which was ok. We ordered drinks and food and again asked if the menu was 50% off. We both ordered the steak and asked for it to be medium. When it arrived it really wasn’t medium and was overdone. We told the person serving us and she asked if we want it replacing we said no as we didn’t want to wait any longer I didn’t really understand how a chef could get this wrong surly a medium steak isn’t difficult. When we asked for the bill we had been charged full price, I’m not sure how you can justify £27 for a steak, a handful of chips, half a mushroom and a bit of rocket! I explained about the 50% off and was told this wasn’t available on Saturdays luckily another member of staff was near by and heard saying oh no it is. We the received another bill minus the discount. I was so looking forward to trying this restaurant but was let down by the good.

2 out of 4 draft beers not on. No mozzarella for pizzas so my vegetarian daughter finished up having soup and a dessert. Drinks full of ice, when we asked for a second round without ice we got smaller glasses for same price. Service appalling, glasses and plates were piled up at end of table but not taken away despite the fact that place was 3/4 empty and staff standing around.

Great service. We were there for afternoon tea. They were happy to replace the tea or coffee option with hot chocolate (as I don’t like either) without any extra charge.

Very disappointed as expected lunch menu with 2 or 3 course menu. Immediately greeted by member of staff to tell us that it was just a lunch sandwich menu and few extras. We decided to stay as was looking forward to having lunch in this iconic building. We had the large sharing platter which was overpriced for what was provided. The restuarant had no more than 12 people in it but the service was extremely slow and we waited a long time to order several drinks having to approach the kitchen to get the attention of 3 staff members who had no more to do other than chat. We have been previously and had a fantastic experience hence our return but yesterday for lunch was extremely disappointing.

The service was really good and the staff were attentive. The afternoon tea was delicious and filling, plus the cocktails were well made. The live music made the setting even better!

beautiful building and enjoyed the live singers that where performing but the afternoon tea was not very good. Incredibly small open Sandwiches on very dry bread and fillings near enough none existent. Scones where cold, cakes tasted very dry and almost shop bought. Staff where nice but a lot of mistakes happening, our drinks went to 3 other tables before eventually making there way to us. The table next to us where having issues also. £44.00 is an extortionate price for what we had. Unfortunately would not recommend this venue for afternoon tea. This was one of the treats I had planned for my partners birthday and we left very disappointed, when I originally made the booking I had asked for a bottle of fizz to be waiting on the table for us but this was not organised.
