Have been to several afternoon teas and I have found that the food offered was quite boring and bland. Others have had little trifles, several different cakes to choose from a little salad dressing to dress the plates too. They were better value for money too.
3rd time here for afternoon tea and never disappointed , thank you
Young girl serving us was very pleasant and attentive as was the young man who first showed us to our table We had a 3.45 afternoon tea booked but didn’t leave till 7.45 and nobody made us fell we were in the way we had a great time sitting chatting and would be very happy to go back Afternoon tea was lovely plenty of clotted cream plenty of hot water to add to our tea pots
Excellent service. Friendly staff and delicious food. Would recommend to friends and family and will return.
Excellent afternoon tea experience
Probably one of the worst afternoon tea’s I have ever had. The service was absolutely awful. I got one cup of tea- yes one the whole time I was there then left with a jug of tap water. Points to improve on: Greet your guests with a smile Ask them what type of tea they would like Serve them the tea in their own tea pot & leave on the table When you bring out the sandwiches- explain to the guests what they are and if they are happy with the selection. In addition, this should be done for any sweets that you serve as part of the experience. Check in on your guests and ask if everything is okay and maybe would they like more sandwiches. Having some music play in the background to make an atmosphere Having white linen table cloths separate on selected tables for your afternoon tea guests As you can tell none of this was done, I did not take my jacket off the whole time I was there and quite frankly couldn’t wait to leave. The atmosphere was depressing and it stank of a fry up. Sort it out guys or just cut your afternoon tea altogether Tell the chef: Sandwiches at afternoon tea need the crusts cut off them, the cakes need to be bigger than a postage stamp. Here’s a positive: keep the scones, cream & jam they tasted great.
Service and food great and made a nice change. Had a voucher which made it exceptional value. We went early evening with grown up family. The restaurant was quiet, but our table was cosy and we were able to chat without lots of background noise. Enjoyed by all.
Very welcoming and attentive staff
Nice and quite
Excellent service lovely surroundings
Excellent restaurant for both food and service but we were the only ones in the restaurant so no atmosphere at all.
It was a bit quiet. The choices on the menu are quite small.
Having previously had a wonderful lunch here we returned for Afternoon Tea..... with Prosecco! Relaxed environment, lovely sandwiches, chilled Prosecco & unlimited tea - perfect!
Great pork belly and friend enjoyed the courgette gratin. Staff great
Staff were efficient and friendly. We had a lovely time and are looking forward to our next visit.
Was a very nice afternoon would have been nice to be told what was on the tray of food just a little touch that other places do but didn't spoil it the waiter was very friendly and helpful overall a fairly good afternoon tea plenty of tea when you wanted it
Booked a last minute baby shower & staff were very helpful. Had to order 1 gluten free & 1 dairy free afternoon tea. Was fantastic that we could all order together & not have to worry. Service was fab & you will definitely have some return customers! Thank you for a fab afternoon.
-Miserable staff with no people skills -Off milk * Won't be returning
Very enjoyable tea. Good service and excellent scones. Compliments to the scone chef. Light and flavoursome. In no way doughy or stodgy.
Food was very nice and service was excellent. Atmosphere was very relaxing.
I ordered chips as a funny surprise to arrive with our afternoon tea as it was a friends retirement and she appreciates the out of the ordinary. But despite speaking to the reception staff at least three times asking for it to be kept a surprise and to just serve the chips with the afternoon tea, it was promptly announced as we sat down at the table ? I even paid over the phone in the week so my friend would be unaware of anything out of the ordinary. Afternoon tea was amazing as usual just a bit disappointed about the chip surprise x 😳
We enjoyed the afternoon tea. Our scones we’re not warm as advertised on the menu and on previous reviews on Tripadvisor.
Food was excellent, guten free cakea were some of the best I've had at an afternoon tea, maybe some homemade jam/speciality jam would have been nicer. Also please can you serve a brown gluten free bread. Yea room was very nice, lacked atmosphere but that was due to the fact there were only us and 1 other table.
Super food and service. Good quality local produce.
The home-made burger was outstanding!
